FDM operators

We are currently having problems with one of our FDM 2000 machines, as
during builds the head appears to be slipping in the minus (-) y direction.
Models have been built that have a number of large steps in this direction
that seem independent of the build height or geometry.

So far we have tried,
Sending SSWIPE followed by SSBUTTON
Tightening the drive cables
Reducing the head bearing tightness
Both motor connectors have been checked and each motor appears to be working

The advice from our supplier is a new xy plotter mechanism, we are seeing if
we can avoid this expense! Please forward any advice to.......

Cheers Adam
