S5 - Prints skewed on X axis?

Posted · S5 - Prints skewed on X axis?

Hey folks, Been learning our printer some more and notice that there is a skew in the prints. I believe along the X axis (looking at the printer left to right). After playing and looking I finally noticed that the metal rod the print head travels upon left to right is visibly offset. The right side is about 3cm closer to the back of the printer then the left side. 

 

Wondering how you adjust this?

 

Thanks!

 

Mike

    He Mike, you probably have a loose pulley, it's fairly easy to fix with the screwdriver that's included with the printer.

    It's easiest if you have a pair of printed alignment tools, I just published a pair for the S5.

     

    Here's the instruction;

    and here's the tools you can print for the S5;

    If yours is really of a lot fix it first roughly without the tools (put the axis as straight as possible and tighten the polley) before you print the tools. Oh, and tighten the pulleys really hard....

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
