print is tilted only in bottom layers

Recommended Posts

I have built a little 3D corner object to test the alignment of my UMO. Interestingly, the print is strongly tilted x-direction in the bottom layers (3mm) only, the y-direction looks fine. I have already strongly tightened the pulleys as recommended in older posts. This effect appeared from one day of happy printing to the other...


I am curious to learn your interpretation why this tilt is so much z-dependent.

Thank you,

    • 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.
