New day, same problem. (Update to previous post)

Recommended Posts

Posted · New day, same problem. (Update to previous post)

I posted the other day asking for help and some people chimed in. Here is the previous thread I made. I made suggested changes, and started the new print. Here are the new settings as suggested by different people. I also set up a custom material setting on the ultimaker 2 with the following.

Nozzle Temperature: 220c

Bed Temperature: 45c

Flow: 100%

Everything else default

But this morning I come into this . (mfw )

It seems that the entire print surface shifted, somewhere, something went horribly wrong. I made sure that the nozzle was clear, no blockages, I did the atomic pull like 10 times (ok, only 3 times, but still) and I stuck around for the first hour of the print job and there were no obvious issues. What am I doing wrong?

A shift usually indicates a loose pulley, check all, tighten the screws including the ones on your x/y motor.

You need to allign the axis again if you had a loose pully, there's a chapter in this upgrade manual on how to do this... but you need two small printed tools so you probably just want to tighten stuff and then print the align tools for use later....

I will try this. Right now what I am doing is attempting to just print a single one of these items, just to see how that turns out.

Bed temp of 45degree is a little low also its normally set between 50-60 degrees.

If you home the printhead in the menu using Maintenance --> Advanced --> Home Head, the printhead should move to the back left corner and lock in place. If it goes to the back corner okay, but you can still move it in the X or Y direction after checking that all of your pulleys on the rods are tight, then it would mean that one of the pulleys on your motor is loose. Looking at the photo, I'd suspect the rear most pulley on the right hand side, connected to the short belt, or the motor pulley on that side.
