'Gantry Height' malfunction

Postby Pedro Luis » Thu Nov 25, 2021 8:43 pm

Possibly this has a bug
Portico height refers to the distance between the tip of the nozzle and the clamping bar of the extruder, in my case 75mm.
But it doesn't do this, as you can see in the video the 'Gantry Height' just is limiting the printing height.

Pedro Luis,
the gantry height needs to set a limit when You print in sequential printing.
For example You set the G.H. to 100 mm and print the first object; when the extruder move to print the second object the axis will make a collision with the first object You have printed.
For this reason the height of the object to print in sequential printing must be less that the height of the axis to avoid damage to our printer.

This is not a bug. You should always have opportunity, to change this value. If you change your hotend, this height will be different, that was "on stock version". To be honest, you can print in sequential mode even 60cm height objects (pro 2 plus). But if you make mistake in order of printing object, you can destroy printer. That's why it is set in safe margin.
