What is wrong with my setup?

Posted · What is wrong with my setup?

I am using an Ultimaker3 and some FormFutura filament.

Does anyone have an idea, what is wrong with my setup, that I get this distances in my print?

 

Thanks for any help!

    You can try to print slower and equalize all the print speeds in Cura to the same value. Per default you have different speed settings for inner wall, outer wall, infill and so on. When you use the save speed you get better results and I could solve a similar issue in past with it.

    thanks for the quick response.

    I tried different speed settings in Cura, but the result was not the one, which I expected.

     

    So I focused on the hardware: with the XY-test, I found out very fast, that the bolts, which fix the X- and Y-servos to the housing, were completely loose.

    After fixing, the distances were gone and the print looks very good again.

     

    The attached GIF shows the situation before fixing the bolts.

    Wow, that's really loose 🙂

    But great you found the problem and you are back in business!

     

    Happy printing!
