First layer shifting on the platform

Posted · First layer shifting on the platform

I am trying to print a big object: with a base around 200mm x 150mm

I sliced it with Netfabb, with a raft (as it's contact surface it's very small) and without support.

I am having the following problem: the raft is currectly printed and occupies almost all of one raft dimension, but when the ultimaker start printing the first layer, it prints the objects outside the raft and the printing envelope (it may be a coincidence, but in the secondo run I noticied that it started printing the object exactly in the center of the platform).

I verified that the endstops are correctly triggered if the printing head reaches the limit and tried to two different alignments of the object on the platform, but each attempt was a failure.

Any hints on the possible cause of this anomaly?

    I suggest disabling the raft, if you hit an endstop during printing you will have problems, as hitting an endstop cancels the whole move, not just the part in that direction.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
