My Prints Are Ribbed/Wavy

Post by Sloopy1 » March 26th, 2018, 6:16 pm

Good afternoon. I am new to 3D printing.
I just assembled my Geeetech Prusa I3 Pro W and I am having some quality issues. My prints seem to be ribbed kind of like a wavy fry. Every 2mm or so it shifts, and then another 2mm it shifts back. It is a regular pattern. The photo below should give you an idea of what I am talking about.

I'm using PLA filament from Geeetech, a spool I bought separatel
The resolution in Cura is set at: 0.1mm
Ive tried temperatures 190, 200, and 210
bed is 60 degrees. y.
The bridging is not an issue at the moment, the weird zig zag/ribs is a problem.

The extruder and bed temps seem to be consistent. The thin legs seems to make a spiral. Not sure what the issue is.

Hrm, watching the machine travel, I think the threaded rods are bent. At least one is. Any thoughts?

You know it almost appears as if that print is stretched out
