  1. Wow, thanks for all the feedback, I actually managed to figure out what it was right after I posted it but because I haven't hit the five posts yet I couldn't tell everyone as I needed for it to be approved. Kinda typical, you always tend to figure it out right after you ask some one. Turns out on the axis that is going front to back (I get confused with the letters -_-) the limit switch wire was going over the linear bearing rather than under causing it to be damaged by the friction. It was tricky to get a good picture but hopefully that explains it. This also explains why it was getting worse over time. Any way thanks for all your feedback and sorry I couldn't let everyone know earlier and not waste their time. Better get back to 3D printing...
  2. Hi, I'm new to the forum, so please let me know if I am doing anything wrong. I have owned the printer (Ultimaker without the updated print head) for a couple of years now and managed to solve most of the issues however I am at a loss around this one so help would be appreciated. I can't seem to find any information on google on this. When printing the printer will stop for a second then continue, it will also print every second or third layer in a different position on the print bed. The images below show the results: The image above shows the object we are trying to print and the settings, these have worked in the past This image shows how it has moved, it always moves towards the front of the printer which makes me think that the steppers are losing their position or the cut off switch is activating for some reason. This image shows an object printed early and the slant that was caused. The issue seems to be getting worse the more I print. First I tried loading the default model and printing that, same problem occured. I thought it may be because the belts were to tight so I tried to loosen them off, this did not help. I then tried reloading the default firmware as I thought this may be "corrupt", as well as older versions that worked fine before hand. Finally I tried downloading and installing Repieter as I thought a different slicer may help this, also didn't work. I checked all the connections into the PCB, these seemed to be solid and should not cause the issue. We are currently running white PLA at the default settings in Cura 13.11. If you have any ideas it would be much appreciated, thanks!
