I have been enjoying my Moai for about a month now. After replacing a faulty SD card reader that came with my kit I have had no problems at all.
Before this issue whenever I printed I would go to the folder gecode and click on the file I want and it would start printing. Now when I try to print after clicking on the file and confirming it. The build plate moves down to position but the laser only flickers in a couple of spots then the plate moves up to around layer 250 and and as far as I know it starts printing because at this point I cancel the print. I have noticed that on the Moai screen when this happens that it says 1 for total layers. I have also found that if I cancel the print after I see this on the display the build plate will move all the way down into the vat but it will then move up to it’s end stop position and if I go back and select the same file again it will now print and the display will show the correct total layers. Very Strange
I have tried formatting but that didn’t make any difference. I use Asura 2.2.3 for supports and Cura 4.4.1 to slice. Firmware is version 1.1.8 Rebooting the printer (turning it off and on) didn’t seem to make a difference either. It only seems to work now if I cancel the first print and watch the plate take a quick resin bath then restart the print. This has been going on for the last 4 or 5 prints now but at least I can still print and the prints are still coming out great.
Thanks in advance,
