Need help on ribbing issues
May 05, 2018 10:34AM
I got struck by ribbing issues which I never encountered before and I'm unsure how I'm going to solve this. What I did was try to check on which acme rods that I used and it is TR8*8 (I think?) with 8mm lead per revolution, put 400 steps/mm on 1/16th microstepping, used 0.2mm layer height during printing which was actually the optimal layer.

Here is the series of images about the ribbing issues I'm having [imgur.com].

I also gone back to the aluminum spring coupler and printed the square tower, still the ribbing occured. I am using the slic3r pe 1.39.1 for that. The file for the square tower was used again.

Can it be due to not lubed up for the acme rods?

I would appreciate if there's any solution to this problem.

Thank you in advance.

What about the smooth rods and linear bearings? Do they run smooth?

Yes, because I've been using the anti-wobble printable tr8*8 nut that will support as a pad for the x axis gantry from the bottom. I actually didn't notice this ribbing issue until I printed a tall object. Most of which I print small and short.

Apparently, the problem lies in z motor mount for the 2020 frame where the screws were loose and caused the motor itself to wobble. I've reverted back to the aluminum spring coupler, remodeled the z axis top bracket not to constrain the acme rods by giving margin on the bracket, used the blue filament holder in the picture and finally, tighten the screws for the z motor mount.

Summary, z-motor mount screws became loose and solved by tightening it again.
