X-offset with PVA

Posted · X-offset with PVA

Hi everyone,

 

I've had a strange issue when printing with PVA supports lately... There seemed to be an offset between the PLA and the PVA support. So naturally I did an X-Y calibration, which surprisingly gave me 0 offset on either axis. According to the test everything was aligned correctly. So I decided to try and print a simple T shape to have some concrete evidence. I stopped the print after the first layer to measure the offset.

 

So I appear to be having a 4.5 mm X-offset with my printer, but I have absolutely zero clue as to where that could come from... Any ideas or suggestions are most welcome!!

 

I used Cura 4.4 and an Ultimaker 3. Print material is generic white PLA and the PVA is the one that was delivered with the printer.

 

Many thanks!

Stephane

      • 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
