Slipping y axis on filling thin walls.
July 19, 2016 08:14AM
I built a printer of my own design a few years ago and love it...with one drawback. When I print something with relatively thin walls (couple mm)', I get y axis slippage when printing fill. Seems that the frequency of the back and forth is just too fast for the enertia of the y axis trolley. I replaced the y motor with a better one but it made no difference. I use Marlin firmware and sli3er. I have played around with the frequency limits in sli3r, but don't know what I'm doing.

My question: is there a way, in slic3r to avoid this extreme back and forth that occurs when printing these thin walls. I think the worst time for this is when printing the horizontal 2nd and 3rd layers before or often a horizontal parameter.

Sorry if this is not clear. I seem to have trouble expressing myself.
