X Y shift

 

Hi. After 6h print I got some shifting on X and Y. I'm not sure how tofix it.

Ofc I have read all the info about and seems that could be the little belts of the x y motor. The other 4 belts have good tension. How can I tight that little belts? Do I need to unscrew the motors in order to push them down?

Sorry but I got my UMO+ assembled so I don't know the little how-to-does.

Thanks!

I printed with 'Fast' settings on Cura and only edited the filament diameter (1.75mm and the shell thickness 1.2mm). At the hour 2 I changed the print speed to 125% from the ulticontroller.

(I selected 1.75mm filament cos I use that filament with other mods to support it and works fine)

    Check the set screws on your pulleys, one of them is probably a bit loose. Go through and re-tighten all of them. You can figure out which one is slipping but it only takes five minutes to re-tighten them all so that's faster.

    If you want to tighten the short belts then yes, you loosen the screws that hold the motor and then push it down and re-tighten. But that's not the problem in this case (circles not being round is a common sign of loose short belts).

      • 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
