After printing replacement parts and doing maintenance on my Taz 5 like new belts, new precision igus bearings and holders on the X and Y axis, I’m still having issues with layer shifting in the x axis on the first 40-50mm of Z height pictured above. I did a test and measured from the edge of the aluminium x axis plate to the 2020 extrusion while moving the Z axis up and down and it does seem to shift around 0.5 mm. I also tried lowering acceleration, jerk and print speed and still see these artifacts albeit a tiny bit less pronounced? The effect doesn’t happen at all in the Y axis which is very strange, I’ve looked back to prints I made before touching anything on the machine and the artifacts are visible in prints before I touched anything recently however they don’t seem to be visible in prints that I made shortly after purchasing the machine.
I’m wondering if anyone has had a similar issue and what the fix is. I’ve gotten so much great use out of this my first and only 3d printer I’ve had since 2015, hoping I can get this issue fixed so I can confidently print great parts for myself and my customers in every axis.
Thanks in advance for reading and replying!
