Print Distorted in 1 Direction

Posted (edited) · Print Distorted in 1 Direction

Whenever I print (most noticeable in a circle), you can clearly see distortion of a couple mm  in one direction. This is using PLA and 0.8mm nozzle. Please see the attached photo.

I have tried

tightening the belt, updating and reseting Cura to defaults, reseting the printer to defaults, rotating my print 90 degrees (the distortion was still to the same direction), updating the printer's firmware, and changing the speed.

Using UM2E+

    Have you checked if your axles have play and are perpendicular? You can find the instructions on the UM resource pages with pictures how to check and how to solve it.

    @smithy I'm trying to get adjust the axels on an S5 as they are definitely not perpendicular. On the UM2 and UMO+ there were printed guides / jigs you could use to do that. Are there files for the S5? I can make some if none exist yet, but figured I'd ask before I start making my own.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
