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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
