Y axis layer offset

Hi,


When I print some objects, the Y axis his offsetting every layers so I'm not able to print straight. Other parts are perfect and I can't find the link in the part geometry that is the cause.


I print at medium with simplify and with std settings. 


It tried to slower the print but no effect.


Thank you

This may be due to a known bug in Simplify 3D. Try this:

In the Simplify 3D process, on the gcode tab, turn off "allow zeroing of extrusion distances (i.e. G92 E0).

Filament Guide

ABS
  • Extrude at ~ 225o C.
  • Requires heated bed.
  • Works reasonably well without cooling.
  • Adheres best to polyimide tape.
  • Filament tolerances are usually tighter.
  • Prone to cracking, delamination, and wraping.
  • More flexible.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents(Acetone or MEK).
  • Fumes are unpleasent in enclosed areas.
  • Oil Based.
PLA
  • Extrude at ~ 180-225o C.
  • Benefits from heated bed.
  • Benefits greatly from cooling while printing.
  • Adheres well to a variety of surfaces.
  • Finer feature detail possible on a well calibrated machine.
  • Prone to curling of corners and overhangs.
  • More brittle.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives.
  • More pleasant smell when extruded.
  • Plant Based.
