Tronxy crux 1 can't get past the 3rd layer

Post by Azzkicker »

First filament printer and it's really confusing me.
Tronxy support hasn't been very helpful.
I've tried re-leveling a few dozen times and different settings in Cura. But very basic stuff. The one time it managed to print the full calibration cube I was pausing after every layer to take a photo. Up until layer 5 or 6 because it started to work fine...ish.

I'm at a loss and I'm not getting anywhere.
Google doesn't have a lot for a tronxy crux 1 either so I'm at the mercy of my educated peers.

Any advice would be helpful!

You're overextruding a lot.

Use this site and start with esteps and the other calibration steps he suggests!

I actually taped a piece of paper to my z axis lead screw and it goes down on every layer after 2

Looking at at your test XYZ cube it appears to not be square.
You will need to calibrate your stepper motors Here are a couple sites to help you
