ansonl started following UM Original+ Y Axes grinding noise + difficultly moving
ansonl posted a topic in Ultimaker 3D printersHi, I just finished building an Ultimaker Original+ and am having some issues with the Y axes movement. When moving the Y axes, there are loud grinding noises and the movement along that axes is inhibited. I have made sure that the sliding blocks are on opposite are level with each other and have also tried adding some oil to the left Y axes. Moving the printer head along the Y axes by hand when the machine is off is also very hard. The X axes moves easily, but the Y axes feels like it is getting "stuck" at certain points along the way. I recorded a short clip of this is action. :( Any advice on what could be the problem? I just bought this UM Original+ from the online Ultimaker Store if source make a difference. Thanks!
