Askew printed object

Recommended Posts

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.
