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

    • "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.
