Curving prints

I agree - that printer isn't right.  Something is bent, or there are loose or bad trolley wheels on one of the axes.  Are the hot end and bed cables interfering with the movement somehow?


My guess is that something is mechanically wrong with the "X" axis.

Move the Z up around Z100 and shut the machine off.  

Looking from the side of the machine slide the print head back and forth.

Does it travel in a single straight line?  When you eyeball the X beam is it straight?  Does the carriage travel smoothly?  Trolley wheels are tight?  No boogers in the slots that the wheels travel in?


@gr5  - There are two threads regarding this problem.
