Offset of the y -axis during printing.

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I have a UltiMaker Original Plus and i''m having problems during printing.

During printing, after approx. 1 hour printing the y coordinate is displacing.

I have checked all the axis and pulles and this doesn't cause the problem.

Does anyone know's what causes this problem and how to solve it?

I hope to hear from you.

It can sometimes be due to the steppers getting to hot or if you have a travel speed to high.

You can prove if any of the pulleys are slipping buy marking the shafts and pukkeys and checking them after it has skipped. If this is ok and it's always after about 1 hour I would think that they are over heating.

    • "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.
