Z Leveling issue, Newbe here.

by Imold

So I’ve finally had time to try my new Anycubic Kossel but when I try to do the 1st step Auto Leveling the print head moves down and over to towards the left front Beam it takes 2 to 3 readings and then comes down off the plate and against the left front beam, no mater what I do it does the same thing, it keeps wanting to wedge up against the left front beam, it’s almost like it thinks it’s going to center but it’s going to about 30 mm from the side, does two or three level checks and then is off the plate and against the beam, it seems like it thinks it’s in the middle of the plate but it’s not.
I’ve centered the printing head all the way up then turn it on to start leveling, the head goes down but as it goes down it moves to the left front and does the 1st bed touch about 30 mm from the edge and then it just works itself off the bed and wedges up against the beam, I turn it off and rest everything and it does the exact same thing, I have not made any changes to the program, I assembled it checked everything over and it just wants to go to the left front beam. I would think it should go straight down and start it’s 69 point reading in the middle not way over to the left front.

Stepper drivers burning out

Is anyone else having a lot of trouble with stepper drivers burning out around 1,200 hours? I have replacements in the mail, does anyone have advice to prevent it?

Nozzle near to bed

by Jimbob_McCoi

Hello guys - after many hours of calibrating I finally managed that the nozzle has the same distance everywhere on the print bed.

Unfortunately it is everywhere ~ 0,12 mm too much. In which direction I have to adjust the Z-height to compensate this 0.12 mm. I don't want the nozzle to scratch my print bed.

So example 100 - 0,12 = 99,88 or 100 + 0,12 = 100,12?

The same question applies to Z-Offset

-14.60 - 0.12 = 14.72 or -14.60 + 0.12 = 14.48?

Linear plus zits on corners

by Bking1340

Good day all

I have printed this bracelet: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:13505
It needs 1 perimiter, 0% infill, 0 top/bottom.
On all the corners I have what looks like zits/blobs. There are no retraction threw out the complete print - It basically prints like vase mode.

I am now thinking that my acceleration and or jerk settings are incorrect - seems like over extrusion on corners?

I`m on marlin 1.1.9 that I got here on thingiverse.

Maximum feedrates (units/s):
M203 X1000.00 Y1000.00 Z1000.00 E200.00
Maximum Acceleration (units/s2):
M201 X2000 Y2000 Z2000 E2000
Acceleration (units/s2): P R T
M204 P600.00 R3000.00 T1000.00
Advanced: B S T X Y Z E
M205 B20000 S0.00 T0.00 X10.00 Y10.00 Z10.00 E10.00

Any Ideas?
