Ask help for leaning prints

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone

I just got my Ultimaker 2 last week.

I have got some leaning prints, as see in the picture:


And I also get some good ones:


What confused me is that I can print cube (show in the picture) successfully just after printing a leaning one, without any adjusting.

Here are some more information:

The leaning problem only occurred on the direction from back of UM2 to front, or from front to the back.

I'm using Cura 15.02.1, with the latest firmware.

I'm using "Normal print" quickprint profile.

I'm using windows 8.1 x64.

Any comments are welcome, thanks.

Thanks, @labern

I'm trying to fix this problem according your link.

And will give feedback after testing.

Another thing I want to mention here is that the screws of UM2 are really low-quality.

It's easy to slip when using hex wrenches (the edges are scuffed), and I'm doubting whether the screws are able to loose again.

Yes I agree that you need to be careful with the screws

The screws are not that bad but the allen keys that they supplied are low quality. dome head screws tend to strip easily as the hexagon hole isn't very deep so care needs to be taken.
