    This is almost always an issue with a loose pulley that slips on its axis while printing.

    Grab a hex key and tighten all the llittle grub screws on your pulleys (don't strip them!)

    If you want to make sure your problem is fixed you can mark where the grub screw positions are on the axis with a magic marker, then check to see if the marks are still aligned with the screws after a print.
