I'm getting layer shifting on the y axis. Sometimes it will do ~100 layers just fine, other times every 3rd layer or so seems to miss steps and get offset from the ones underneath it. I've checked the pulley lead screws are tight and the belt is properly tensioned. Do I need to adjust the stepper driver? How much and which way? The motor for the carriage seems underpowered.
Hello people, I was having terrible problems with temperatures fluctuations and my prints didn't start when using octoprint because the temperature was too unstable. Recently I found a simple fix using a 10v1000uf capacitor in the board 5v pins. Now take a look at my temps after this change: They are pretty stable!!! and finally started to print from octoprint. You can do this really quick and for cheap, I found this information in the following video (method 2): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCtL0Yd_w0I I hope this helps people from the thread "Printing stops" and others reporting different issues.
