Wednesday night tip. check your belts

was printing PLA tonight and i thought my infil extrusion lines were a bit wavy, not the same nice look i had a month ago.
After playing with the settings and getting nowhere, i checked my y axis belt (the one under the bed) and discovered it was very loose !

So i removed the belt from the grip, skipped a tooth, and tighten it again,
problem solved, nice rectilinear infills !

That's enough for a wednesday night :D

Your bed mounts might have softened when using high temps. Check to meke shure the screws mounting then to the rail are tight!

Checked them, they are tight. But in the process i discovered one of the three screws for bed leveling was completely loose. So i tighten it back a bit, will check bed level tomorrow. Great achievement for a wednesday night. :lol:

and printing PLA is just so nice and easy, after battling 2 weeks with ABS.
