[Solved] Build Plate Ridge
My CR-6 SE has developed a ridge on the right side of the plate running the entire length - see attached picture. I'm printing a flat plate with brim. I initially thought that the glass plate was warped so I replaced it. But the same ridge appeared again so it seems to be the leveling platform under the plate. I have tried auto leveling multiple times to no avail. Suggestions?
@doclee001 Have you tried messing with z offset? Did this always occur of recently? I'd take a measurement from the build plate to each side of the gantry rail to see if it's square.
I did play with the z-offset. If you get it high enough the ridge will disappear but it will be too high over the rest of the build plate. So not the solution. And I did measure the gantry rail - its the same height on both sides. The ridge did not always occur. Seems like it has been just recently.
Turns out this was a self inflicted issue. It was the z-offset. I was making that paper pull under the nozzle a little too tight. For me, it's better to just barely scape the paper. Works fine across the build plate. Now I clean the plate and do the auto level and paper pull after every build.
