Support my habit, Get cool Stuff

And it's broke again.

When I can finally afford to replace this Makerbot, either because 3D printers have gotten cheap or I've become independently wealthy, I hope that the machines that replace them will be slightly more reliable. But that's not what I have. What I have is a few days of printing between problems. At least it feels that way right now. A week ago my offsets were off. Then I fixed than and suddenly everything stops sticking to the build platform. I think I've got that sorted and now this. I'm not sure what to make of it.

Basically, when printing, the Y-Axis refuses to move more than an inch back of the front lip of the build platform. But it's only when printing. Homing the axises or using jog mode it has no problem going past that point. I've asked for help in the usual place. I really hope I can get this sorted. I need to finish my Quarto set and my Doctor Who pawns need testing. Thank goodness there's nothing more urgent than that right now. Nevermind. The etsy store would blow up today.
