Z screw settings not correct corexy



  • I asked the supplier about the z screws. They told me 8mm 2mm pitch. When printing the z seems to jump too high each layer. Not sure what the settings should be based on that.

    Do they have an 8mm lead or a 2mm lead?

    You'll need to know that to find the correct steps per mm using this:

    Z_steps_per_mm = (motor_steps_per_rev * driver_microstep) / screw_lead

  • Pitch=2mm,Lead=8mm This is what I was told by them. So I was wrong

    Well we've got two options to test. Do the calculations with 2 and test the steps per mm of that doesn't work test with 8. Even vendors get lead and pitch confused so best to test.



  • Ok. How do I test it ? Based on the amount of movement ?

    Yeah. You can force the z axis position using g92 z0. Then use the jog buttons in the web interface to move it and measure the distance moved with a ruler.
