Perhaps we could offer some advice if you told us what sort of printer you use. It could be your axis need cleaning or some oil, it could be that your axes are not perpendicular, it could be belts getting stuck.

I think you might have over-tightened the shift-key on your keyboard.

 

With the power turned off, can you move around the printhead by hand? Do you feel any change in resistance?

 

Belts can also be too tight, and there can be too much oil (which can congeal/get dirty and stiff). Pictures and/or a short video could be helpful in diagnosing the issue.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
