I’ve been printing only one model with my X5 and the parts were coming out reliably. All of a sudden, there was a layer shift in the Y axis about 0.5-1mm. Everything else in the part was normal except a small step in it.
I had not loaded a new model for a week, so the code was the same as when it was coming out correctly. I’m thinking that this might be a problem with the physical Y axis. I turned off the machine and moved the Y axis back and forth and everything seems fine. The belt is moving properly, except that during printing, at the same exact layer height, the axis shifts… not at any other height.
Before I start going in and taking things apart, does anyone know what this problem could be?
On the one hand I thought the problem could be the code, but then how could this happen to a print that I was running all week?
On the other hand, I thought the problem could be with the belt, but then how could this only happen at one layer height only once during the print?
