X-Axis is scaled down

Hey,

I build my first Mk3s, and at the moment the Quality is not that great. For some reason, my testprint is scaled down on the X-Axis. It is 3 mm of while the Y-Axis is only of by 0.3 mm. And the circles are squished and not round.

I tried with the Prusa Slicer and with Cura, printer firmeware is updated. In the picture, white is from a different printer and black is from the Prusa Mk3s

RE: X-Axis is scaled down

Non round circles indicates either pulleys are not tightened on the motors properly or a problem with belt tension. It’s not software it’s a hardware issue.

Glad you got it sorted.  The loose pulley is probably one of the most common issues that crops up.
