Printer rails are not perpendicular

Recommended Posts

IMG

 

Hi,

I have a my UM2 since end January this year. As I progressed in the size of the prints since then, I then realized my prints that were supposed to be perpendicular are not : they are skewed.

On a print of 5cm x 5 cm (still relatively small), two opposite sides are not parallel and the difference is a few millimeters !

I join a picture showing my printer from the top : it shows indeed that the axles are not perpendicular (see A and B distances are not the same on the picture).

How can I fix that ?

Thx

    • "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.
