Z axis not moving

Post by DJ » Mon Feb 15, 2016 12:51 am

Whenever I try and initialize the printer, the Z axis just makes a "clunk clunk" noise and shakes a bit. I've checked the belt, and it doesn't appear to have slipped or broken.

Anyone have any other ideas on what to check?

It is most likley that your printed Z axis block is broken.
Try and glue the part, then print out a replacement
UP mini BletBlock-Z-V2.UP3

The part can be found in the Example folder under program files. You'll need to remove the back cover and the motherboard to see whats the problem.
