Quality printing problem

Recommended Posts

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

I have feeder bondtech, and I I cleaned and lubricated the z axis.

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:

Hi

Thanks, today I have been upgrading to the belts attached to the stepping motors.

PRINTING PROBLEM

Today I have performed all the controls on the steppers of the stepper motors and also on the axle screws I tightened all the screws well and adjusted the straps as proposed on the following guide: http://support.3dverkstan.se/. ..ooting-guide # circles

Setting Print with CURA 2.6.1 I have the following problem printing object is unacceptable, the object is cropped, cropped.

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?

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

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:

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.

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.

    • "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.
