Somehow prints are being stretched bigger vertically



  • i installed this duet a week ago and still cant get one right print, now parts are wrong size all along i found out. I use repetier slicer for both my 3d printers and only the duetwifi ones are wrong.

  • Repetier isn't a slicer. Which slicer in Repetier are you using? If I remember right, it has Cura, Slic3r and Skeinforge. Cura has issues that you have been told about in another thread you had going.



  • what size pullys do you have on that printer your steps/mm seem to be odd also is it GT2 belt or MXL.

    87.489 is a strange Steps/mm figure also what type of thread is on you Z Axis (Diam and Pitch plus thread type please).

    87.489 is correct for the MXL belts and pulleys on the Ormerod printer. I presume they are 18 tooth pulleys.

    However, most printers use GT2 belts and pulleys, not MXL.



  • stock cheep chineese tevo tarantula printer gt2 belt, and found in repatier were it was using cura as slicer i changed to slic3r prusia edition ,will try after work. and the printer settings are from the RRF configeration tool default settings for cartisian printer

    changed motors to these

    • Manufacturer Part Number: 17HS16-2004S
    • Motor Type: Bipolar Stepper
    • Step Angle: 1.8 deg.
    • Holding Torque: 45Ncm(63.7oz.in)
    • Rated Current/phase: 2A
    • Phase Resistance: 1.1ohms
    • Inductance: 2.6mH+/-20%(1KHz)
      duel z
      T82 lead screw 375 mm 8mm with brass copper
      upgradded pullys
      GT2 20Teeth 3mm Bore Aluminum Timing Belt Idler Pulley
      and upgradded to duel y with 10mm rods instead od 8mm
      and
      Corrosion-Resistant Ball Bearing Carriages and Guide Rails for x axis industrial grade not cheep amazon MGN12
      other than that stock

  • administrators

    For GT2 pulleys with 20 teeth, the X and Y steps/mm should be 80. For a leadscrew with 2mm lead driven direct from the motor with no reduction, the Z steps/mm should be 1600.



  • ok printing best prints ever finnally, was 1600mm steps for z and i opened my old merlin folder and just copied old settings and runs great now thank you.
