Printer went off design

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I encountered a small problem while printing a simple design. The printer went off design and started printing 2 centimetres further than the original place.

Did anybody experience this kind of problem with an Ultimaker 3?

Best,

Ana

Ummm, I am not sure what you mean by 'further than the original'. Was this in one axis only? What did you use to slice it with and do you have a screenshot of the file to compare against the printed piece?

And, welcome to da forum. I am not a welcomer, but am a noob, not much further than yourself.

    • "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.
