Hello,  I'm having a drift problem with my printer. It lays down the support material then each layer moves forward. The drift gets progressively worse as it prints. I have re - leveled, reinstalled the firmware, but I am still having problems. It was super weird because it drifted, then printed 3 parts perfectly (sequential) then began drifting forward again. Anyone have any ideas? The zortax support has been less than helpful.

Could the problem be caused by lost steps, perhaps caused by binding somewhere?

Hi mike. Kyle was correct. The set screw on the ya axis motor was lose as a goose. I'm still getting a little bit of warping or uneven sidewalls in the z direction. Thoughts?

Hey Kyle - thanks for the follow up. After I threw some blue loctite onto the set screw it seemed to fix the issue. Thanks for all of your help!
