I had the same issue in one of my printing tasks.. Probably because I changed the layer thickness a bit? I dont think it's because my piece were warped because when it was finished the measurements were fine.

If this is PLA try to adjust Z-hop value 0.2 to 0.5 mm. Lower temp, nozzle flow and filament feed.

Korni did you figure it out yet? Mine clicks while moving in the X direction, its not hitting anything as it does it even while traversing empty space.

Can you create the same noise when manually move the printer head when printer is idle?
Please confirm whether there's any abnormal on your belt related to the movement of the direction you are having issue with and also the coupler works in that direction.

Yes, it does't it when I move the head manually too. It seems to happen at the same position, rotation wise, of the X-drive shaft. Meaning if I watch the set screws on the pulleys or couplers while I move the head it repeats every time they pass the same spot in their rotation.

Try this. Use screen to home the XY then use the screen to control it to move (100,100), so that the motors in XY are enabled. Keep them enabled, and try to push the print head with your hand. See whether you can move it a little bit or not.

Hi Vicky, I finished my print and checked the movement as you asked. There is no apparent movement aside from a slight flexing of the rods and belts. The noise has gotten louder though over the past couple of days, started with a faint click to more of a clack sound that repeats every revolution of the X-axis rod. It does seem to be coming from the left rear of the machine. Any other ideas?

Would you like to record the noise and share it with our technicians at http://help.raise3.com?
Please also try to reach to your motor couplers for both sides. And also take videos of their movements.

Well I was thinking of taking it apart and investigating further, suppose I could record things while I'm at it. Looks like to get at the steppers you have to take the top off (saw instructions on replacing couplers).
That brings me to another topic, is there a service manual for the Pro2 or at least an exploded parts diagram?
Also, for things like this, since I only have two hands, it would be nice if I had an exercise program that ran the x and/or y back and forth. That possible in gcode or something?

You don't really need to take the top totally off, you can just loose its fixing screws to have space to move it around to reach to coupler.
If you only want to check, you can reach to the one on right back corner by opening the side door and reach to the one at left back corner by removing the back panel.
You can slice a cube but scale it to be larger size. Print it with no filament loaded in case filament waste.
Or reach to our technicians at http://help.raise3d.com to see whether they have some other recommendations.

Vicky, I took the X motor/coupler out and inspected them and didn't see anything that looked broken, when I moved in the X direction with these off there was no noise. Then when I put it back together the noise was gone. Maybe an alignment/adjustment problem?

It might be the issue. After putting it back, do you feel resistance when moving the extruder head around?

No, no resistance that I can tell, why?

Just want to make sure that there is no gantry binding issue on your printer before it back to run print test.
