Maybe someone has the same problem. My question is what causes the print to be off? see attached pic. would a factory reset cure this problem? the print looks as if a strong wind was blowing as it was printing?? thanks Jim5a33260beb8d1_3dprintproblem.thumb.jpg.ce836277b9ed1c3eccb65f8b55a4649d.jpg

    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

    Um...

    @jimpeyton - I've seen this problem 100 times and seen it fixed 100 times. It's very simple. Neotko gave you the correct answer a week ago so no one added much to that.
