Prints failing on Ultimaker 2

Recommended Posts

I have had my Ultimaker 2 for about 6 months, and it suddenly stopped working properly a while back. When I try to print the models that came with the SD card, they turn out really bad (see attached photos). Any idea on what's causing this? I've tried resetting to factory settings and installing the latest firmware.

Thanks in advance!

Here's a very nice troubleshooting guide:

It seems like your printer may have more than one of the issues from the guide. You should definetly check all the pulley setscrews and belt tensions (it's all described in the guide).

Just keep asking if that doesn't help!

/edit:

I'd start with the "leaning prints" point. That could be it...
