Prints aren't straight

I had the same problem with printing a cube. Are your layers coming out solid or are the layers inconsistent? The reason for my crooked prints was that the filament was slipping as it went through the extruder. Check and make sure that the bolt tensioner is tight enough.

    I can't see your picture. If they are tilted in the x-axis only, it is almost surely the black plastic x-motor mounts are too short and the x-motor belt is rubbing slightly against the wood back board. I had a tilting problem and it was fixed when I added 4 washers under the 4 mounts. Took 8 hours of head scratching to figure out the problem and only 3 minutes to fix the problem.

    Just to add, pay particular attention to the ones on the end of the motor shafts. They are difficult to access

    (hence why they get neglected) and since this one pulley, drives two...it has twice the torque acting on it

    as the pulleys on the long shafts...
