    I'm stuck on trying to figure this out. why my print is being squashed, it seems the z axis spreading some how.

    Which printer (exactly which version -- there are minor differences) and have you changed the Z steps in any way?
    I can't see an obvious issue, but if you have changed anything we need to know.

    It could be a model problem. Run some sanity checks on the model.

    Did you download the fixed files in the link I posted for you? Read that link and download the fixes, and follow the instructions in that post.

    Copied over the text for you...but you need to follow the link to download the ZIP file with the fixes.

    -------------------------------------

    "You MAY get an actual ERROR like the following:

    exit status 1 using typedef-name 'fpos_t' after 'struct'

    This is due to a change in the more recent arduino compilers and can be fixed by downloading the attached SDBASE.ZIP and extracting the two file source files included into the directory where you extracted the others and overwrite the two existing ones.

    Once you have done that you should be able to compile OK (you will still get warnings, but no errors)."

    If you keep that copy of the source handy you are good to go for any future updates you need to do!

    Just now auto leveling issue. The printer starts the process and pauses at the z axis portion. could it be the Start G code:

    G21 ;metric values

    G90 ;absolute positioning

    M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode

    G28 X0 Y0 Z0 ;

    M565 Z-1.10 ;Define 1.0mm of offset, adjust this value if you're too high/low. More negative is further from the bed

    M106 S0 ;Fan off at start

    G29 ;Run autolevel routine

    G92 E0 ;reset extruder length

    G1 F1800.0

    G1 E4.0 ;prime extruder

    G92 E0 ;reset extruder length

    There is a small switch under each side of the Z axis brackets, make sure it is properly seated.

    The controller moves z axis fine at 0.1mm, when i use auto home the head gets to the center of the printer, z axis starts going down for a second then stops and the printer just makes a hum sound.

    Well HOME is not the center really. Home is X = 0, Y = 0, Z = 0 and that is not in the center of the bed :)

    Front left corner is HOME if you are looking at the printer from the front.

    Since you have apparently reworked some things we will need more details about what (if any) changes from default you have made to the firmware.

    Something got changed in the firmware most likely. Or that LCD is doing something odd.
