[Solved] Z-Axis wobble for taller prints
Z-Axis wobble for taller prints
Esteemed 3D printing Wizards,
I have an issue where I get z-axis wobble or layer shifting for taller prints. I created a z-axis tower to test my Prusa mini to see if it could print its full 180mm Z-volume and found that the higher I print the worse the wobble gets. I don't see anything obviously wrong with my z-screw. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Please see the photo below.
RE: Z-Axis wobble for taller prints
So the problem was with my model itself. I was informed by Prusa Support that any model this thin (.4mm) and tall (180mm) would wobble because of the movement of the axis. They recommended a minimum number of perimeters of 2 and a wider base (or supports).
