Printhead moves around aimlessly?

Printhead moves around aimlessly? Video:Printhead moving

Both failing at the same spot

 

So i tried printing a collapsible Dice Tower and the first 2 Prints were great, but i tried the Third Part 2 Times and both failed the same way at the same point. So I went to the 4 Print and the Printhead moved aimlessly around again, as seen on the Video. I do not find any Mistakes on the Gcode.

This is like my 10th Print and I did not have any Issues before.

What could be the Problem here? Should  I look at the GCode again?

I would look at the GCODE.  You can zip it and upload it here.

Are you using OctoPrint by any chance? If so, does it happen without OctoPrint?

I heard similar behavior with a bad gcode.

Octoprint would be better as You can see which gcode commands are sent to the printer, moreover in the gcode viewer You can see if there are errors.

Try analyzing gcode in the prusaslicer gcode viewer, may be there is something wrong.

In the display the printer reports the current z height (+z offset), look for that level. 

 

as a suggestion I would format or change the usb stick, slice the model again and try.
