It look like a problem with the z axis to me

maybe you need to clean and lubricated both the Z thread and the vertical shafts

One other thought, depending on your feeder (I have a BondTech feeder) sometimes the internal feeder gears benefit from cleaning

    Could be a backlash issue. Check the short belts on the stepper motors. Make sure they're fairly tight.

    An easy test for this is to print 2-3 concentric rings and see  if they are truly round or not. See the image to the left here:

    Check just in case that the x/y are square

    HI Neotko, How do I use it? Do I have to use more than one contemporaneous?

    Hi Robert,

    What is the (backlash issue)?

    Are my belts lining material on toothed wheels on which they are turning almost 3 years old, maybe should they be replaced?

    But I'm not a UM2 user. Seems that in theory your aystem should be aligned by double checking the black spacers on your printer:

    http://support.3dverkstan.se/article/23-a-visual-ultimaker-troubleshooting-guide#misaligned-axes

    This guide also recommends a printed alignment tool to check and align. The video is for umo+ but is practically the very same on um2.

    Can someone send me the link where I can find all the information about the components used for Ultimaker 2?

    Thanks

    Yesterday I made prints after strapping the straps and after checking the straps of the stepper motors.

    The hollow print came pretty well when I went to print that I'm interested in filling high, I again had the big problems of geometric correctness.

    Today I did the print test with the circles suggested by Robert.

    It seems to me that they are correct.

    My problem is this, but I've already done this.
