    Anet ET4 Circles becomes oval

    Just got my Anet ET4 and my first two testprints where simple circle objects.

    I noticed my circles are coming out slightly oval.

    All my axes moves around smooth and freely when manually pushing them around.

    Any idea what to check next?

    I used a Simplify3D profile for Anet A8, since Simplify haven't listed the ET4 yet.

    you probably need to change the steps in the startup script. I had to do this for my ctc.
    G28 ; home all axes
    M92 X80 Y79

    G1 X0 Y0 Z0.1 F3000 ; get ready to prime
    G92 E0 ; reset extrusion distance
    G1 X100 E20 F600 ; prime nozzle
    They should both be the same, but mine is the cheapest printer on the market for a reason :-)

    You shoul;d be able to adjust or change it in your firmware - I can't do that with mine. But it's actually much easier to play around with settings in simplify3d startup script.

    It could also by a loose belt.

    Also it's an ender 3 clone - so, you know, expect problems.
    Should have got the anet a8 plus instead.

    Thanks for answering, yes it's a damn cheap printer. :PFound the culprit for the oval models, several of the delrin wheels where bad. Replaced em and now it prints fine.But it has a really crappy GUI.

    Ah well - that's easier than buggering around with the firmware :-)

    The bed steelplate came bent, managed to straighten it out okay. But they have sent me new delrin wheels and a plate, so I'm actually happy with service provided by the seller.
