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.

    • "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.
