Print materials are off set by 1/4 inch

Posted · Print materials are off set by 1/4 inch

HI, When I run a print; Extruder 1 lays down a good layer (Yellow).

Then extruder 2 lays down the support filament and it's not in the correct place.   It is shifted about a 1/4" to the left.  I have run the X-Y alignment calibration and still having issues.

Please help.

    Thank you for your reply.

    How do I make sure that those definitions are correct on my Ultimaker 3?  

    I am using CURA 4.3.0

    Drawings from Fusion 360.

    I set the printer as Ultimaker 3 in the window top left on the CURA slicer window.

    At first, i would check that you've actually selected "Ultimaker 3" and not "...S3".

    Although i guess it would give you (at least) a warning if you try to print it on the wrong printer model.

     

    And you can check the extruder offsets in machine settings.

    Nozzle offset x/y should be zero for "Extruder 1" and 18mm on x for "Extruder 2".

    If everything is correct on the software side, it may be that the lift switch calibration on the printer is wrong and the printhead collides with the bracket or the side panel while switching nozzles?

    Thank you SO, SO much.  

    i changed a few things as YOU recommended and am printing a test part as attached.

    Material 1 and material 2 are laying down properly.

    I think that you fixed it and will try another part to be sure.

    Once the next part is underway I'll post a photo.

    You are the best!
