Chasing an impossible problem (SOLVED!)

Recommended Posts

So occasionally I get a weird artifact on the sidewalls of my prints.

Sometimes it's only PART of a print. Doesn't appear to be related to speed, acceleration, jerk, or anything else. I've tried them all.

And last night I finally worked it out.

I'll show a photo first:

Anyone have an idea what it is? Anyone want to take a guess?

*drumroll*

Ok, here's the answer. It's a second printer on the same table, shaking! It's my old MakerBot Replicator 1XL. When printing at 85mm/sec, the whole machine shakes the table enough that it was bouncing the build platform on the UM2 !!

Had another print going, stopped the MB, and the problem went away. Started a new print.... and it came back. This has been going on for AGES.

Problem solved!
