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.

    • 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.
