A5 z-axis very loud and slow all of a sudden
I didn't use my A5 in 3 months or so. On my last print back then the nozzle crashed into the printbed, scratching off some of the top layer on the glass (the stock glass). I didn't level the bed before every single print and it usually worked fine, not sure why it was off by that much from one print to the next (it really pressed on the bed quite hard). Anyway, I'm just mentioning it, because it might be connected to my current problem.
Just tried to re-activate the printer and all of a sudden the movements on the z-axis are very slow and loud. If I use the menu to move the head, the 10mm per step setting moves the head 10 mm in x and y direction but only about 1 mm on the z axis. And the sound it produces is closer to a power-drill than to what it sounded like before.
(Even though I mentionioned crashing into the bed earlier, I checked the printer afterwards and didn'd find anything wrong with the z-axis back then..)
