layer shifting

Recommended Posts

Posted · layer shifting

I got layer shifting in the printouts.  Model is rendered in Cura and looked ok.  But most of them will shift in X axis (shown in figures).  Anyone has experience on it and can share your solution?  Is a hardware or software problem?  Any method to check if there is a layer shifting (in Cura or gcode) and prevent it?

Hi there, 

 

Layers shifted that bad means the belt skipped a few gear's teeth. Check belt tension and if the belt and gears are clean.

Will it caused by step motor overheat?  I found the step motor (x axis) is very hot after printing an hour.

      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.
