Nozzle hitting and moving work after 12 mins.
I'm new to the forum and new to 3D printing. I recently purchased an Ender 3 Pro. I have a decent mechanical aptitude and had no problem assembling and setting up the printer including bed leveling. I'm using the glass bed. I have used both the paper method and the .05 mm feeler gauge method.
The first print attempts of the dog in the examples didn't make it past 1 minute before the nozzle apparently hit the work started moving it around. I kept trying to re-level the bed after each failed attempt and finally got it to go for about 12 minutes before it hit the work and started moving it around. I don't seem to be able to ge further than that.
I have tried:
Upgrading firmware (although the display shows no change).
Making sure all nuts and bolts are tight.
Checked and adjust belt tension.
Leveled and re-leveled the bed many, many, many times.
Is there something obvious that I am missing in not being able to get further into the print job?
Thanks in advance.
@rwalker43 Recently my ender 6 got a similar issue, when I print something, it could print well, but after the half-hour when I check again, I got spaghetti. I found that the print has a little curl at the edge of the print, so I guess it lost the adhesion while printing. I am trying to print it again with a higher bed temp.
@Kevin the issue turned out to be the bed temperature! The preheat bed temp was 60, but the actual printing bed temp defaulted to 45!! Rookie mistake!! Also, if I post again, I need to include more basic info about my setup in the post!
