Belt Keeps Breaking During Prints



  • It's been happening quite often-- I've been having issues with my Delta printer in which during a print, the nozzle gets stuck on part of the print and ends up destroying the belts in the process. Below are pictures of the most recent attempt-- the printer got stuck on the corner with the tears as shown.

    Any idea as to why it occurs?
    Thanks in advance!!

    destroying the belts in the process.

    How do you mean "destroying belts", I don't see how a nozzle catch can damage a belt ? Any images of the belt itself?

    (As for the question of why you have nozzle catch I'm not a delta expert so no clue how to and what exactly you need to calibrate to not have that problem, but it is probably calibration issue)



  • the belt should slip over the pulley before braking and the motor should skip steps way before.

    the force required to break a belt is quite significant.
