Slanted Prints

Post by kizza42 » Fri Mar 09, 2018 8:32 am

Build seemed to go ok, I calibrated successfully but every print seems to print each layer offset from the one below. the prints are leaning towards the front of the printer (1st pic is the same as build orientation on the bed). Sliced in Cura and printed via Octoprint
Please help!

I had an issue where I saw a print job slanting similar to that. I found the problem was because one of the XYZ motor drive pulleys (black piece attached to top motors that the belts grip onto) was slipping. The primary screw on the flat surface of the motor arm was not gripping the arm tightly enough, which put the extruder and hotend off balance due to one of the printing arms being weaker.
