Printing at Angle, Skewed features - Help or ideas

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
