I'm completely new at 3D printing, so I hope my issue is an easy one to solve:
I completed the K8600-kit, and tried the test-object "Spoolholder" available on Velleman's site.

When starting the 2nd contour, I saw a shift in Y-axis (few millimeters to the backside).
At the 5th contour there was a shift to the right (X-axis, almost a centimeter).
Some contours later, this happened again.


I aborted the print.

Does anyone have a clue why this happens?

I think there's a problem with Z-Axis homing distance (z -height).
exact Z-Axis height when homed is 0.15mm (use feeler gauge thickness 0.15mm to do this).
Image . this is better the a piece of paper.

=> Also repeat the calibtrating Z-Axis procedure by following these newer instructions! Easier.

Or the bed isn't level enough.
