  1. You can reduce your build plate temp to 65 and it might help with the corners. Buy a can of aqua net hair spray (the purple one). Spray a little on a paper towel and wipe on the build plate before printing. It really is the best thing for adhesion. The saggy waistline is probably just because of the overhang. Reducing the heat a little might help this out as well. You'll just need to tweak your temps about 5 degrees at the time and play with it until you dial it in.
  2. Your top/bottom thickness could be reduced. Doing 1.2 mm of 100% density will cause some shrinking to occur at the build plate. You could also drop your infill density to 20%. From my experience, the more density, the more shrinking, which causes the elephant feet.
  3. Haven't had any replies so I've just been working off some of the other similar posts. I think I've narrowed it down to my x-stop. I can move +x, but not -x. When I swap cables with the y-stop, I get the same problem on the y. Just want to know if I need to replace the x-stop, or if there could be another reason for this. If so, where can I find one?

  5. My ultimaker 2 seems to be be having trouble homing. I've installed Pronterface and when I move in the X or Y direction, it shows that it's hitting the endstops around the middle of the machine and won't go any further. Also won't return to the home position. On a separate note and hopefully related, I'm getting gaps between the lines in my first few layers. It doesn't happen on the infill, just the bottom and top layers. For this, I've tightened all pulleys, tightened the feeder screw, atomic method many times. I'm hoping all these issues are related. Thanks for any feedback. UPDATE: I got t
  6. I'm having the leaning issue as well. I've adjust my pulleys and it improved a little, but I'm still getting leaning. One thing I noticed is my small belt to the servo keeps walking over close to the servo. I try to center it on the teeth of both pulleys but it always walks back over. Could this be causing drag? If so, are you aware of any solutions? Thanks for your feedback.
