Trouble with print being off ( see pic )

Recommended Posts

Besides that, the layers also seem a little bit under extruded, and it looks like you could bend your fanshrouds a little bit more inwards to close the gap, like in this photo.


Neo also had a valid tip, check out the guide. It is a pretty good guide.

What material you have used, and at what temperature and speed are you printing?

Have you ever replaced your PTFE/TFM coupler, or do an Atomic Method?

thanks for the reply and the advise. I'm using PLA temp at 225 deg.

100% speed but slowed it down same effect. I just replaced the coupler.

The material flows from nozzle in a straight line so I don't think it's the material or extruder. I've noticed that when I turn printer off and try to move in x y directions that it seems very tight or hard to move?? any suggestions? Jim
