Need Help: Print is Offsetting in X-Y direction

Recommended Posts

I have an Ultimaker 2 Extended. I have printed about 30 successful large prints prior to this issue. I repeated the print as I thought it was a fluke but the same issue re-surfaced.


In the above image the item is supposed to be straight in the vertical direction, but it is printing the S curve about 1cm up from the start position. The above was repeated 2 more times in which I decided to post this asking for help.

One thing to note, I noticed that on the X and Y motor some Black Residue, not sure if this is part of the problem or not.

    • "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.
