Help layer shift!

Post by Cankiwi » Fri Sep 04, 2020 8:28 pm

Help I have a layer shift problem. If I can get a successful print the next one will have a shift.
Or if it’s a bigger print it’ll happen well into the print.
I have tightened the belt and marked the belt to see if it skips (it doesn’t).
It’s only on the x axis
It doesn’t matter if it’s octoprint or on the sd card.
It doesn’t matter if it’s cura or the test file that came on the card.
The only thing I can think of is the stepper motor is failing.

Kindly check the X-axis belt and make sure it is tight. These belts may loosen during shipment or after long use of printer.
Check your stepper drivers during the printing process, make sure non of the driver is overheating.
After checking the above suggestions kindly share your experience with us.

Hi, here are the some suggestions for it:
1.You can check the X axis belt loose or not at first
2. Try to use the multimeter to check the vref of the TMC2208, it should be the 1.0V
3. You should check the jerk setting of your slice software at first.
The Cura default setting should be X/Y is 15, it is a little high so you can decrease it to 8
Another thing you can check is at the LCD>configuration.
You can do some adjust of the jerk then it will improve this problem.

Ok so as stated in the original post The belt was tight and I have marked it at the home position and that mark has not changed.
2 I have no idea what terminals to test on the 2208
3 the latest print is the test two print that came with the machine so that eliminates the slicing programs.

Using point 2 as a suggestion I switched the 2208 from the x axis to the y axis.

Used the test 2 file that and still ended up with a layer shift on the x axis.
That is the stage I’m at still no idea what the problem is.
