Hello, about a week ago my vertex delta arrived.
After building the printer following the manual closely, i was ready to make my first print. At the time I didn’t have the most ideal oil, but I figured it would work to at least test the basic functions.
With the g-code of the keychain stored on the sd-card, I completed my frist print almost perfectly. With exactly the same settings and a clean printbed I tried to make another. On the second print the head detached for the frist time.
To prevent this issue form happening again, I pantiently waited until I had the right oil, read the forums on almost every topic that could be related, and found some good advice on oiling the rods for every print, making sure you can push down the head without the magnets detaching and tightening the belts.
Since then i attempted to make the keychain about 20 more times, for the sake of letting the printer get a bit settled in.
The problem that I believe im still having is that the printhead is traveling over an already printed area and getting stuck there with the nozzle, causing a magnetic bearing to detach. Apearantly using cura software could minimalize this occurance, but I’d rather have a more fool proof solution if one is available.
Any advice is greatly appreciated
