Hi, one week ago I bought myself a Vertex Delta printer. After a couple of hours assembling the entire printer I callibrated the printer and everything was okay as far as I could see ( I watched the X, Y, Z and center callibration and everything was the same and i could slip a piece of paper under it ) , so I tried to print the recommended “Keychain”. Unfortunately when the printer started it scraped into the printbed and didn’t extract any fillament. After a lot of testing I thought my print was finally going well, it was still very close to the print bed ( I think it even hit the bed a little bit ) but it was extracting fillament, but as the print went on my nozzle kept hitting the print while printing, Normally i would have stopped the print but I was so tired of stopping and starting it so I let it go on.
The layers are al totaly shifted, probably because the nozzle kept hitting the print.
After this I created my own 3D design, just a regular cube, slided it in Cura and hoped this one was gonna be better, but when I started the print the nozzle just scraped in the bed again.
Possible solutions I tried:
- Lubricating the vertical rods
- Checking for air bubbles on build tak
- tightening the nuts on diagonal rods
- tensioning the belts
- Checked if the end stops where on the correct height
- because the fillament didn’t extract properly I also went into the motherboard and checked for the 1,05 V and this was the case.

Can anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong?
