Re: Thicker layer offset

I think I feel really guity.. I was sure I had commented on it, but I haven't.. My printer is a off-brand Replicator Dual.. two heads.. I noticed the other day that the left head seams to have dropped a tiny bit.. I took it off completely and did a test.. then gave it a good clean and back on.. I think the second nozzle was down a tiny bit and for some reason (odd since it seams to only be them set layers where it was thicker, but I might know why for that) it pushed the printed filament.

Can't 100% confirm that right now as i'm having a minor heating problem.. I think I might need to put in a new sensor.. Basiclly, it seams to take along time to heat up at the moment, and it times out, but then starts printing and seams okay.. apart from major a little head issue, so I think I need to put in a new sensor, or maybe figure out what's wrong with the one screw that holds the heat element in place.. either way, like I said, I can't confirm completely but I think it's better now.. seams to be..

Shifting of the printed layers in the object could occur due to various reasons such as misaligned or bent rods, nozzle reaching the print object or a shift in the platform position.
To resolve these, check if the printer has a stable base, look out for warped layers, reduce the printing speed, check, clean and oil the rods and the belt etc.
