Printhead all over the place.

Recommended Posts

Today I had some extrusion problems, removed the hot end a few times and now it printed about 1cm z-height and the printhead started to go all over the place. It kept extruding well though and extruded something cotton like. The printhead was in areas where it did not belong. What could have caused this?

I used Cura 12.07 and used the same file with the ulticontroler that worked a day ago.

But the first few layers are printed at a lower speed, so you could be having issues at higher speeds, which can be anything from lots of slack in the small belts (so they jump over the pulleys), lose pulleys or too little power on the step motors.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
