Uneven Gantry Height

Posted · Uneven Gantry Height

Hello, I am relatively new to 3d printing. I go a Longer LK5 Pro about a year ago and I have a problem where the powered side of the gantry goes up the correct height, but the right lags behind (see image), which usually leaves unsatisfactory clearance and/or surface finish. I tried experimenting with different belt tensions and changing the eccentric bolt on the gantry wheel, but nothing has really worked well. Is there a way I can fix this without making significant modifications?

    Hi MrBeantown, Sorry to hear your having issues with your Longer LK5 Pro.

    However, you might get better support for your printer reaching out to Longer or its user communities.
    UltiMaker is not associated with Longer in any way.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
