I am having issue with my new printer it is not printing circles correctly although I have change firmware and stepping of motor advise if anyone know the solution. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ X axis pulley is 20 teeth with the calculation it's 80 step y axis is 16 teeth pulley so it's 100 step $\endgroup$ Sep 13 '17 at 15:59

Possible causes for the printer not printing correct dimensions:

  • Incorrect number of steps/mm in firmware settings
  • Belts are not tight enough
  • Pulley slips on the shaft

Looking at the picture, I would go for the first case, because distortion looks regular. Try checking microstep settings on your board, and settings in the firmware.

    $\begingroup$ yes did it with first case although against the calculation which I did. changing microstepping work out $\endgroup$ Sep 14 '17 at 16:00

This could be because your belts are either old or not tight enough. Try adjust or replacing the belts and try again.
