UM2 Build plate can "slide" or rotate

Recommended Posts

Hello UM Community,

I recently printed a 30+ hour robot chasis and noticed that the top layers were ajar from the bottom by what seemed like a few degrees. I really scratched my head on this one until I realized the part had to have slid relative to the print-head for this to happen. Since I know this part had great bed adhesion, I knew the build plate had to have slipped.

So I checked, and sure enough I can twist the glass plate in place when clamped down.

Is this normal? How can it be prevented? Thanks.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
