Greetings,

I'm having a strange issue with one part printing features at an angle (skewed).

Here is an example of the part:

You can see how the features skew, and then straighten out. It's got a couple of us scratching our heads, an we think it may be a singularity in how the slicer handles the part.

Here's the mating part without any issues printed right before this:

I've checked the belts, etc. we even printed a cylinder the same height as the part to see if that would skew, and it did not. Time to come to the community for help.

Anyone have any ideas?

(Next I'm thinking we change nozzle size...)

Printing:

Ultimaker 2+ Ext, ABS, 0.6mm Nozzle, Bed temp 90C, Nozzle 260C, both Cura 15.4 and Cura 2.4, 100% infill, 100% support, 40mm/s speed.

    This is a hardware problem.

    Is it possible to move an issue to a different part of the forum??

    I don't know, but you could also repost the question in the hardware section of the forum.

    Thanks for your response. I'm thinking it's a model singularity, though I'll post over in hardware and get their thoughts. Thanks again.
