layer shift in prints

Recommended Posts

hello.

i have a UMO plus

and have started to noticing layer shifts if i can call it that

and was hope someone here could help or guide me to how to make those go away

the shifts arent in the stl so it is the printer that makes them

the  2 first picture are really showing the step or layer shift.

but third picture is a bit harder but it is there :(

soo if any one have any idea what is causing this let me know

I think (for the photos) that looks like z hit. If it's that clean the z rod with a cloth (and if you have greese cleaner) and apply the green lube. Each 6 months it's a good idea to remove the wood cap and do a good cleaning of the z nut. (If that's what I'm seeing)

    • "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.
