drifting print

Recommended Posts

greetings all,

I have recently reconstructed an Ultimaker Original and was printing fine. The other day, during a print the layers started to drift. At first the drifting was +y and of late, was -y. But in each case the layer were accurate but drifting. Any thoughts?

I consider myself to be a novice and this is my first printer. Also, the cura software does not communicate with the printer effectively and will not level or run a printer check, and as a result I only print with the SD card.

thank you in advance,

    • "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.
