Micro stepping delayed action

  • I have noticed lately that micro stepping (which always seemed to work fine before) doesnt change anything.

    Today I hit the button a few times with no movement on the z screws so I did the manual brute force method one step at a time on all 3 z screws, which worked great until I had to pause the print. When I resumed the print, all the buffered micro steps came into play, and the print resumed above the print surface, then would not micro step back down of course. I havent updated my FW in a while, and dont really remember this ever happening before.

    Currently running...(think im behind by one rev)

    @HenryDara i guess you mean babystepping? see if you still get this in firmware version 2.04

  • Oh yeah, baby stepping. I just upgraded to 2.04, and am re-trying it. It does look like it takes a few moves before the step changes, and sometimes it doesnt seem to at all still. Gonna watch it some more, but I feel like something is still preventing it from babystepping. Mesh Bed Comp is off, and I am not trying to step below true Zero.

    Will keep at it, thanks...HD

    What is the full step resolution of your z axis?
    What is the step size of the baby stepping you're trying to apply?
