Prints not vertical x axis shifting back and forth

My prints are shiftedin the vertical direction.

The layers shift back and forth in the x axis direction.

I tightened the x axis belt, but it did not help!

Any help would be appreciated.

Jakub,

On closer inspection, the prints, while much better, still leaned. It is most visible on the Triceratops skull and the backside of the dragon.

They both leaned to the left, so I went back to looking at the printer and found that the horizontal belt was rubbing on the frame.

Once I slid the pulley in a millimeter, all my prints have been straight!

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Dave,

try to print some of our G-codes (https://www.prusa3d.com/printable-3d-mod...), it is still happening?

I printed several of the G-codes, Tree Frog, Martian, Gears and they all work perfect. So apparently the printer is functioning well.

Does that mean the Prusa Control is generating bad g-code? I created the parts in Fusion 360. Any known problems with either of those?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Dave,

can you please upload one or two models? It is very unlikely PrusaControl is generating bad G-code, but we need to check. Are you able to test it as well by creating G-code in latest Slic3r PE?
