Bad print on outer edge of printing area

Hi,

I'm trying to print a mandalorian helmet I found on Thingiverse, but the largest piece will come out with its outer right side looking smashed or compressed.

It started doing this strange printing thing from the raft, and it kept getting worse as it moved up.

The other side looks perfectly fine, and the print was centered in the middle of the bed.

Anyone has an idea of what might be the issue and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

@jgill Seems the stepper has pulse losing issue. Could you please check the voltage of motor drivers? Look at below video, Method 4. If the voltage of motor driving is too small, it will cause pulse losing.

Hi Kevin, thank you for your reply.

I checked the voltage following the instructions of method 4 in that video and everything was fine.

Do you think there can be another explanation for that faulty print on only one edge of the piece? 

Thanks,

Jordi

What filament and temps are you using?

@jgill Hi Jordi. It is hard to say. But normally I will check if it is a slicing software issue Or the Mandalorian helmet 3D drawing itself has some issue there. (But you said download from Thingiverse, it should be ok). Did you use Cura? How about using Creality slicing software to try.

If these do not work, I will think that my firmware might be something wrong.
