First layer shifting on the platform

Recommended Posts

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?

    • "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.
