Ultimaker Original leaning prints on heated bed

Recommended Posts

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!
