Was it X or Y axis that missed steps?

There are two main causes of missed steps. Loose pulley causes sudden shifts. Rubbing/friction causes gradual shifts like this. If it's a UM1 it's almost certainly the rubber belt rubbing against the wood frame - you can tell because it twists back and forth each time it changes direction. Fix by adding washers under the 4 black plastic spacers and possibly also taking the motor off and moving the pulley even closer to the motor (should be very close - about 1/2mm).

If UM2 it's also usually rubbing pulley or belt but usually right at the motor pulley. In that case the only solution I'm told is to move the pulley along the shaft closer to the motor.

    On the pulley? really? That's really good to know for future as someone asks every week almost.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
