Help with layer-problem.

Recommended Posts

This is a brand new Ultimaker 2 printer and I have serious layerings issue. Everytime I reach a couple of centimeters, the printer just completly goes off the mark. I have tighten the screws in the belt, as shown on Visual Ultimaker guide. I don't know what else it could be. Here is a images showing the Ultimaker Robot.

Any help? Fairly new to 3D Printing and so far i've had 2 Ultimaker 2 printers fail. One with temperatur error and this one won't even print properly. ;/

It's almost always the pulley on one of the motors - I can't see it very well in the photo but I think it moved in the Y direction, correct? Towards the front of the machine? So it's the motor on the back left corner. Remove the metal cover that hides the Y motor (only one screw holding it on) and push the head around until you can access that set screw. Then tighten the screw on the other end of that belt while you have the tool in hand.

The pulleys on the long belts rarely are the problem but occasionally are the problem.

    • "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.
