Vibrating Y axis

Post by Tattered » Fri Jun 24, 2016 7:38 pm

Hi, I am hoping for some help with this issue.

My Y axis seems to have some vibration showing on my prints but only significantly in one direction. I removed the belt and the bed glides smoothly. I tried putting a twist in the belt but that didn't help. there just doesn't seem to be much resistance there.

I have included some photos if it helps.

These are the right side

This is the side opposite (it has join marks)

and these are the front and back

What's your printer model? The vibration may be because the belt is too loose, or there's something wrong with the wheel or the bearing?

Incase anyone wants to know, that was the problem.
Took it right off and started again, needed a small trim and the tensioner on the x and y were set a bit wrong.
Prints are great now.
Thanks for your reply.
