Askew printed object

hi,

i'm very new to the ultimaker and my first print goes wrong :-(

after starting with replicatorg 035 and slic3r ultimaker normal print profile the print goes wrong.

i'm using the 20mm_Calibration_Box.

the object was crooked printed.

another bad point was, that the temp cable was disconnected during the print work.

i think that the cables and the PFA tube pull the print head to the side. or is there another reason? All belts are not too tight.

any suggestions or ideas?

best regards

    If you print is skewed, then the most common cause is too little tension in belts, or a pulley (on the axes or motor) which isn't secured tightly.

    If the temperature sensor disconnects from the board on top of the printer head, then you have a major problem, as it will continue heating and your PEEK part will melt. (which smells really bad)

    The head shouldn't be tilted, so the 3th picture I found odd...

    Hi Punker

    It looks like your Peek has melted a bit.

    If that's the case it means that it has gotten way above normal printing temperature.

    So you would need to check your temperature is correct and being regulated.

    You may need to grind the bottom of your peek flat again as well.

    hi,

    my problem was, that the temperature sensor disconnects during the print job. i'm very new, and my failure was not to stop the print job quickly. that's my point :-(

    i ordered a new peek, the peek is broken.

    my question was about the askew object. my belt tension is good and all pulleys all tighten.

    is it possible, that the cables and the pfa tube pulls the head to the side?

    best regards

    I've never seen it happen that a bowden tube pulls on the head. (and my machine has 2 tubes) I have seen it happen that the head moved because of "bumps" in the object caused by over-extruding.

      • 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
