Not printing round circle after ultimkaer 2+ upgrade

Posted · Not printing round circle after ultimkaer 2+ upgrade

I recently updated my ultimaker 2 to the 2+ Now I am having trouble printing round circles. I was really confused on the aligning the axles portion of the video and the written tutorial. Maybe I did it wrong and that's the issue? I'm not really sure. Just know I can't figure it out. I cab upload some pictures if needed. Any help would be great.

Thanks

Maybe this helps. This it's how it's done on an umo+. On um2 it's almost the same.

Yeah this is pretty much what I got from the upgrade video. It's very vague. I hate that I don't really understand it what's going on with this. I wish there was something that explained it in more detail.

The idea it's to loose the pulleys, set the alignment tool, screw corresponding pulleys. It's just that. This way the central x/y axes are square.

Thanks a lot for the help. It turns out I was doing it correctly...I just accidentally reversed one of the pulleys the first time I did it so there was like a half inch gap on one side. It fell off when I first did it.
