Tweaking the x-axis

You'll recall some time back that I discovered that I could get rid of a lot of the curling and distortion when I was printing something out of HDPE if I first put down a single layer HDPE "raft" like this.

What you may not have known about this raft is that the extrusions run in the +/- y direction. Notice how even the x boundary is. Heretofore, I've been noticing x-drift when I tried to build something vertically. This last weekend when I was upgrading the control panel I wrote another button on the control panel to generate a raft where the extrusions ran in the +/- x direction.

This morning I got around to using it.

(Read the rest of the story)

Interesting that the drift appears to have a vaguely sawtooth-shaped pattern to it.
