Problem with alignment of the UMO

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Im having trouble with my UMO

I don't know why, but when i print something, it starts well, printing as it should, but as it goes, at a random height, it suddenly prints wrong:

So what it does is it continues printing the object, but like a cm upper than normal so at the end, the object is like "dislocated" and useless...

I'm working on a Final project for college and I need this issue to be fixed...

Could this things solve the problem?:

-install newest version of CURA

-Verify the axis and so on

THX for helping!

Sounds like a slipping pulley to me. Check that the pulleys are securely fastened to the rods. The easiest way to check is to draw a little line with a pen on the pulley and rod. Then print something and when the print fails check if the marks have moved in relation to each other. Tighten all the set screws nice and tight.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
