strange wall placement

Recommended Posts

Posted · strange wall placement

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.

Sounds like a belt tension problem, are your circles round or oval/square?

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.
