Wandering printing

Recommended Posts

I seem to be having a issue when printing taller prints. The stl file looks fine in Cura but when printing the printer moves off the original start point and print creeps off line. Any idea what is going wrong?

Thanks of the guide load of stuff there!

Checked all the belts and pulleys but looks like is issue with the stepper motors overheating and shutting down to cool while printing, have looked that up and seems to be a common problem. Trying to see if adjusting the current to the motor works if not will try to install some fan cooling or heatsink addition.
