Print halfway on other spot, XY issue?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print halfway on other spot, XY issue?

Hi there community.


My prints somehow shift/glitch to another spot midway during the printjob. The print quality seems to be fine and as it should and it even finishes.


Does anyone have an idea how to fix this issue?


Much appreciated!

    Hey @chilldon,

    Welcome to the Ultimaker community. 🎉

    Layer shifting can have a couple of causes. 
    @ghostkeeper has written some detailed troubleshooting tips. 
    You can find them here

    If it's not a Cura problem you can check if  you are up to date on your maintance schedule. 
    This can also be caused by loose belts or overheated stepper motors/drivers. 
    You can read here how you can check the tension in your belts.


    I hope this helps! 💪
