Print Misalignment

Postby Gilgamesh » Tue Nov 07, 2017 10:40 pm


I've seen a bunch of different websites offer solutions to this problem but they vary from "Slow down your print speed" to "There's something wrong with your printer's belts".

My printer speed was slowed to about 40 mm/s on average and the printer is brand new - bought it less than a month ago... so I hope the belts aren't off!

Can anyone assist in preventing this from happening?
Much appreciated.

There are a number of reasons that the printer could shift the layer in that way, drop us a support ticket and we can run through the options with you quickly.

I had this identical problem with the Raise printer after just a few days of use. The flexible coupler between the axis drive motor and belt shaft was loose. A two second fix with a hex key.

I believe the picture shows the problem: you most likely had head strikes from edge curl. This can happen with any filament but is most common with PLA and slanted walls. To prevent it: make sure fan is full on (uncovered) and insulate your hotend.
