3D-printer issue

Question by aaron pawlak

Hello,

I am completely new to all of this and looking around for help.I was hoping to present a new puzzle printed in my new black PLA but instead I have to annoy you again by talking about my printer issues. A few pieces that I printed tomorrow worked out fine. After those I started several other prints which failed. After restarting the print I was convinced that it wasn't the file that was responsible for the problem. Thus I looked at my device and searched for something odd. On closer examination I noticed that on the other side the "golden" piece wasn't moving alone but somehow attached to the box. In addition, the black piece at the bottom of the axis should be more or less permanent and is a bit too high on the false axis.I had checked 3d animation video but don't know what to do to fix the issue ? .Does anybody have an idea? I went through many resources but did not find any solution for this issues. Please help me out.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

Most printers use leadscrews which is cheaper than ballscrews they tend to have some backlash effect, i actually had some issues with my own printer (da vinci jr) it was by default set to wrong z axis value. i set it up to 0.1mm compensation . Also notice that if you don´t have heated printer bed to use either paper glue to keep the workpiece to not slip and slide thus causing your print to fail. I came up with the idea to use reusable baking paper glued to the bed it makes your print stay on the bed while printing and it stills come of easy (keep in mind to not use this method if you have heated bed)

Some additional information which may be helpful to post:
- The make/model of the 3D printer.
- Good photos so everyone can better visualize the the gold and black pieces.
