Does anyone know of a good calibration guide for the MendelMax 1.5? I finally have mine running but the z axis is not moving enough to lay down the proper height . I have .3 for resolution in slicr3 but the machine is barely giving me about .1

Are you measuring just the first layer being printed or multiple?

If Z is not moving the distance you tell it. Might be the incorrect steps per mm for Z.
What type of leadscrew are you using?

I have all of the steps needed for the leadscrew already calculated. I do not know how to change them or where to change them. I am very confused about this. It should be a simple matter as it is with my later cutter. But there is much more involved with the printer, I am afraid.

I'm on the same boat mondo50m. the Z axis not moving and X axis move when it fill like moving and is the same for the Y axis.

using ramps 1.4 with lcd connected to it and merlin for firmware but not to familiar with it.

Keep up we can do it.

Do you mind putting some photos of your printer?
