Serious misalignment, cant fix it

Recommended Posts

Posted · Serious misalignment, cant fix it

I am assembling my printer right now

I seem to have a serious misalignment on the X-Y axis

when i move the extruder to the front left the distance to the left is 5.5 mm, when i move it to the back left its 6.5 to 7 mm.

How do i fix this ?, the manual isn't very clear on this

Loosen off all the bushings on the x and y shafts and you should be able to straighten in up. Let us know how you go.

Loosen the bushings? Do you mean pulleys?
