strange wall placement

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have run into a problem that is tripping me up, so i thought I might as well see if any one here has a solution. My printer has been placing the walls of my recent prints in a strange fashion as of late, with no apparent explanation. If you were ti draw an imaginary line down the middle of the machine, the walls on the left are printed too close together, so much so that the infill goes beyond the walls. On the right side, the opposite happens, with the machine printing the walls far out enough that the walls and infill are seperated by about 1mm. This is a consistent issue, and changes to the software seem to have no effect. Also, the machine has no obvious problems, and the first few prints were if excelent quality. This problem just started to happen, even though there were no changes in setting from the best to worst prints.

I am running cura with a stock machine.

Circles are slightly oval, but I'm not sure belt tension can completely explain this.

This is a pic of what the nickel calibration test that I did was supposed to look like.

Instead of what is shown above, My print was a bit messier. The walls of the slots were separated from the infill by about 1mm on both sides of the walls on the X axis. The circle had a similar problem. However the Y axis connected all of it's walls just fine.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
