UMO+ Problem with circles

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I have an UMO+ and since a few weeks I have troubles printing circles. I tried everything, from recalibrating to switching axles and bearings.

Today I changed the bearings but there was no change in print quality.

I tried printing this one as a test: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11895

Here is what the result looks like:IMG_20171009_161449.thumb.jpg.b3f294916bcc6e1f70d163e888057dea.jpg

Do you have any suggestions?

Regards, charlie

Yes, the print is terrible.

But I did just a quick reassembly with the new bearings to see if this got the trick done.

I should mention that the printer is a second-hand one so I can't say for sure if the parts are all original.

My last guess would be that the pulleys are wrong but I'd like to have a more educated guess from you guys.

I did print with standard cura (v.2.3.1) settings, normal quality pla. Other parts came out nicer in the past until the day I discovered the unround circles. Should I try new pulleys? Where can I get some reasonable priced within europe?

    • "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.
