I am using an ultimaker original (Do not have a heated bed) and I am printing in PLA at 210 c, Every print I have done so far and come out slanted facing forward. I have levelled the bed twice now and I am still getting the same results, i have checked that the Y axis is moving the correct distance and still nothing. Here is a picture of two of my prints that have turned out slanted.

    The basics...make sure the pulleys are firmly in place, make sure those set screws are in tight. Something seems slightly out of alignment to generate prints like that.

    Has this just started to happen? Or had the printer worked fine for a while and now this is occurring?

    No worries i have tightened all the pulleys and made sure that the belt was not rubbing on the frame and now all is working again. Thanks for the help!
