Problem during printing (Ultimaker Original)


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem during printing (Ultimaker Original)


With my Ultimaker Original, I can't print objects correctly.

At the beginning of the printing, everything works correctly, the object begins to be visualized. But

It's only after nearly a minute that the impression shifts and no longer follows the right trajectory.

I've fixed the feeder, I don't see where the problem comes from.

Here is attached a picture of an impression.

Hoping for an answer

    Thank you ! Indeed, the fan on the bottom of the printer wasn't working.

    If I change it, will the problem persist ? Or now, need i to change the motors ?

    do you know why the fan doesn't work? Did it work before as it should be?

    In my situation in both cases (2 different printers) there was a loose fan wire underneath and after readjusting everything worked again. Why or what would you change about the motors?

    I guess that the motors are loosing steps if they get too hot...
