x-y-displacement

since a while, my creator prints no exact anymore. it goes like this:

it starts printing a circle at, let's say, 6 o'clock , starts moving outside the radius at 1.30 to 1,  

continues with the old radius until quite exact the opposite position, moves again a little

bit outside, continues and so meets the first point again.

looks funny with square, see the pdf

No matter which slicer und which sofware, what I get is an ugly egg instaed of a baeutiful disk.

I tightened the x- and z-axis belts (because that needed my felix when it did the same) and now

I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere.

does anybody have an idea?

Hi,

Maybe the x or y axis is not correctly lubricated, or do they have some dirty? 

Try to move the carriage manually: do you find any point in which the carriage does not run freely?

Check if the bearings are good / clean. And check if the x - y axis are straight (not bending).

... no more ideas on this matter.

Bye

Carlo
