printing head loose X and Y axis

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone ,

i'm new on this community and in 3d printing world. i've just got my first 3d printer ( ultimaker 2go ) 2 days ago .

as testing print i've made the ULTIMAKER ROBOT and no problems at all, then i ve tried with one of my design ( simple cylinder with some holes ) everything at the begin was fine but after one hour the printer head seems that it lost the X and Y axis ( without showing any error messages ) it just came out from the original printing shape and caused a printing disaster....

so the be sure i've aborted this print , shut down the machine and start with another standard project ( stackable cup ) , but again , after one hour more or less, the printer lost again the X and Y axis ....

can someone help me ?

thank you guys.

Hi @SimoMaker, welcome to the forums!

Great to hear you are just getting started with 3D Printing and Ultimaker had the honor of being your first 3D Printer :)

I was wondering if you could share some pictures from your failed prints with us so we can see what has gone wrong? What you may interpret as a lost X/Y axis may be something different to a trained eye. Pictures always help :)

Upload some pictures to your album and share them in your post.

Looking forward hearing from you, thanks!

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
