New to software, Layer shift in X


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · New to software, Layer shift in X


First post here and I am only days into the software.

I have Cura 4.4 running

Octoprint and Snapmaker V1


I am getting results from Cura that are so impressive compared to what I have been used to with the native slicer, I am really impressed.

Unfortunately my prints are getting to around layer 25-26 when the Gcode (I have tracked it down to the code) sends it off and creates a layer shift in X.


Why would it print incredibly well to that point the create a shift and then from what I can see in the Gcode, try and resume normal operations after that.


I found it is in the Gcode and it is X playing around happily in the X25 - 32 region then all of a sudden its starts flirting with values from 98 -102> Why would CURA produce Gcode with that going on..
