Dear all, it has been quite a while since I posted and I miss you all
I am currently doing a DIY 3D printer using Ramps 1.4 and it works well as I have tested all x, y and z axis including the extruder spitting out the ink. I have jogged all the axis using Pronterface Software. I am printing a simple solid cube (20 mm x 20 mm x 20 mm) and the cube G-code I generated from Slic3r is uploaded on google drive here.
The problem is when it is printing for like 5 seconds, the x and y axis suddenly moves so much to the ends of the beams and I am unsure why, I believe is the G-code problem. I would really appreciate if anyone can give me some advice on this and what went wrong. I am so close to printing my first cube haha.
I run G-code from Slic3r on the Pronterface software. The video on this problem is uploaded google drive here, can just view without download. As you can see at the end of the video, the axis can move from one end to the other end and the beam is so long, how is it even possible? I have to switch off the power at the end to prevent damage to wheels
Thank you for reading and have a nice day
