Simple Metal: Z Axis Won't Move Up After First Layer

Postby liamwazherealso » 2017-Jan-Wed-21-Jan

Hello,

About a week ago I got my Simple Metal to work. I went through the sample spool and everything was fine. So I decided to order some actual spools. I didn't touch the thing for a week since I was out of filament. And upon using the new filament (1.7mm PLA) it is no longer printing well :cry:

I can get the printer to print a good first layer. But after that it just drags through the first layer as flattens it.

What's odd to me is that my manual controls work before a print but after I cancel the print I can use the controls to move in X and Y direction but no longer Z. I need to reset the printer to get manual control over Z again :!:

In case y'all were gonna ask I'm using Windows 7 and Cura 15.04.2. :D Thanks for any help.
