Dear Tracy,

Is the shift in the direction of the roller? > yes

 

Are all parts on the layer affected by an identical shift? > yes

 

Is it more obvious in the center or at the outer edges of the part bed? > no

 

The leg of the part that extends towards the top of the picture is curved. Is that the correct shape for the model or is that distortion? > that also is distortion

  I know you are looking for answers, but I have a few more questions. Complex problems with the galvos do happen, but in my experience they are very rare (3 incidents in 12 years at our facility).

   

  Is the shift in the direction of the roller?

   

  Are all parts on the layer affected by an identical shift?

   

  Is it more obvious in the center or at the outer edges of the part bed?

   

  The leg of the part that extends towards the top of the picture is curved. Is that the correct shape for the model or is that distortion?

   

  Iím taking the simple approach to start with. Please excuse me if the questions seem trivial based on your experience.

  Hello Everyone,

   

  Do any of you have a solution for shifting of layers with a DTM 2500 plus machine?

  The problem occurs only at certain layers, mostly the first 5 mm of the part.

  See attached picture.

  Thanks a lot in advance.
