Missing steps - Shifting layers

Hi,

I'm having problems printing large items. Smaller things work well,

but when items are big I get huge shifting mid-print (up to 2cm shift on some occasions). Some times several shifts happen during one print, with just a few layers in between shifts.

I have no idea where this is coming from. The belts are nice and tight.

Any ideas how to find the source of this problem ?

    If it only and always happens with larger prints, i would also look into overheating of the motor or stepper driver.

    Do you have all the heatsinks on them, and how about the fanduct on your electronics?

    Original poster fixed the problem by oiling rods apparently (he cross posted in google groups).
