    I just finished building my BigBox, and during the magical printing of the 3D Benchy, I always get level shifting around layer 50. Does anyone know what can cause this?

    Torque stall maybe? Hard to say without a picture or knowing which direction it shifted in.

    Have you tuned your stepper drivers?

    It always skips in the Y-Axis direction. Stepper motor voltage is: 0.591v.

    I found the issue. The stepper-motor driver was dodgy...
    Replaced it with a DRV8825 I had laying around, and now it's a very happy BigBox :)
