  • layers of model sliding to the right

    I am new to this forum I am coming from the great Youtube channel of Dr Vax. Thank you for your work
    When I print a test cube on the left of the bed of my printer it prints fine. if i print it on the center or on the right of the bed the layers slide from left to right. see attached picture. Could someone help me identify the problem and how to tackle it? thank you so much

    Looks like a belt is slipping. Make sure they are all tight, but not too tight. Also, is your bed flat? Take a straight edge and run it across the bed while illuminating the straight edge from behind.

      I agree it's likely something mechanical --> that's a lot of slipping. And, the fact that it's doing it in the same area every time would point me at least to belts, almost like worn out or broken rubber teeth.

        My guess is that your printers bridge is not level and is lower on the right side. This causes the print head to collide with the print, while on the left side, where the (probably only) lead screw is, the print heads z position is more or less correct. This is why it works left and fails middle to right.

        Also make sure you can move the X carriage freely, when the printer is turned off. There shouldn´t be any bumps. It should take the same force to move it left to the right and back.

          thank you all for your suggestions I will check Geit suggestion first * seems easy enough to figure that one out* and then the belt if needed. Thank you
