Y-axis skipping / drifting upwards - dbrgn - 10-15-2017 09:47 PM

I have the issue that the home position is drifting upwards after a print. So if I push down the pen to the bottom left corner and then do a print, the x-position is at 0 but the y position is a few millimeters above.

What could be the issue here? Some belts slipping? Do I need to tighten something?

Hm, I think tightening the Y-belt helped Smile I'll do a few test runs tomorrow to see if it also still works fine after 10-20 prints.

Yes, check the friction of the Y axis and the belt too (just in case)
