Ultimaker Original leaning prints on heated bed

Posted · Ultimaker Original leaning prints on heated bed

A couple months ago I installed the heated bed and right off, noticed the heated bed Z-cover squeaks as it is making contact with the back of the printer. I'm not 100% sure it is to blame for this, but I wanted to put that out there

It just started happening, my last two prints show the lean. Here's a photo of tonight's print, done in XT-CF20 carbon fiber filament. The angle is taken from the RIGHT side of the print...

And from a few months ago...

Any thoughts? I really hate the thought of taking the printer all apart again to repair the Z-Cap....if that's the culprit!

    Usually this is more related to some loose pulleys or maybe one of the short belts thats touching the panels, not sure why the z should have any effect like this?

    Hi DidlerKlein Thanks for the reply.

    Well its the only change, so I suspected that might be my problem

    However unscrewing and examining the motor and pulley sounds a whole lot easier!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
