Sudden Z wobble / Banding issue

After months of successful printing, I have hit a problem. I have been setting my Mk3s+ up in a LACK enclosure, and I did routine maintenance and all of a sudden, I start getting this while trying to print a simple tube. I have perfect example from a couple of days ago so I'm sure it has only just started happening. Its a very even spiral effect.

Anyone encountered this issue? its driving me crazy. I've half disassembled the printer now to try and rebuild it and hopefully fix the issue.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Conor

RE: Sudden Z wobble / Banding issue

to me, that is not a Z wobble issue.

more like a sort of over-extrusion caused by something in the design (something like shells+infill+fill gaps or some sort of).

can you pass your gcode of that part?

@conor-d

You can upload a gcode on prusaprinters for sure.
otherwise any other cloud storage

@antonio-da-catania, PrusaPrinters seems to me more dedicated to finished projects, proposed to the community.

@conor-d, you can zip your g-code file and post it here. Are you printing in PLA ? If yes try a print with enclosure open. While a high temperature around the printer is useful for printing ABS, PCBlend, or ASA, it is not recommended for the motherboard and power supply and unnecessary for PLA or PETG.

MK3s Stock, PS2.3, Fusion360, Debian, Windows 10.

Hi,
