Layer shift in prints on Ultimaker 2 +

Posted · Layer shift in prints on Ultimaker 2 +

Hello All,

I have been using my Ultimaker 2+ for 10 months now.

No problem. Excellent prints.

But in last two days I am getting an issue of Layer shift.

I am sharing some images with you all to help me our with the problem.

I have tightened all the pulleys . Even the small ones.

I really need help because it was working absolutely fine until yesterday

    Tighten them MUCH harder. If you use a hex driver (like a screwdriver) you should be afraid the tool will break. It should twist slightly. If you use an L shaped tool your fingers should hurt for a few minutes after. REALLY TIGHT. You probably only need to get the 2 on the short belts of the slipping axis - not all 11 pulleys. I can't tell which axis is slipping because you already removed the part from the printer.

    There's a very small possibility that your stepper drivers overheat and shut off for a half second occasionally also. But I strongly doubt that. You would likely have issues with the Z axis long before X or Y. This is 98% odds that it's a pulley set-screw.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
