  1. I've checked the slider blocks and none of them are hitting the belts. I also adjusted the pulleys to make sure they were centered but I am still experiencing the noise. It seems to be originating from the far left corner where you "home head" but no matter how I move the pulleys, the grinding noise still happens.
  2. Thanks for the quick responses. I checked to make sure that the shafts were not hitting the side panels. I had that happen before and I moved them back into place. Here's a link to a quick video I made that shows the noise generated whenever printing. Hope it helps. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4diitms1u25m221/2016-10-31%2001.56.02.mp4?dl=0
  3. Hi there, I have an Ultimaker 2+ Extended and for awhile now, it makes this loud grinding noise whenever it is printing or traveling in the y direction (I think). The prints are fine and I've also tried lubricating the axes but this grinding noise that it's generating is obnoxious to say the least. Any ideas on what I can do to remedy the situation? Will
  4. Hey everyone, thanks for the responses! I got around to trying both Meshmixer and Autodesk Print Studio. Meshmixer would crash anytime it would try to analyze/compute the supports so it was unusable on my system. Autodesk Print Studio has a wonderful UI and I've been able to add the supports I needed with no problem. Thanks again!
  5. Hi there, I'm trying to print something that's thin and tall. I use a brim but the problem is eventually it gets knocked down or shifted. I'm printing vertically to obtain a better resolution and was wondering if there's a way to generate supports not only for overhangs but for the side(s) of the print so that it's more stable while printing.
  6. @baymaker: The printer is in my apartment at Columbia, MO. USA @tinydancer: I just checked and it says the printer has 413.15 hours of print time.
  7. Hi all, I'm looking to sell my Ultimaker 2+ Extended to try playing around with resin and the Form 2 SLA Printer. I've only had the Ultimaker for about two months. I have all of the original packaging and accessories. The 0.4 mm nozzle and 0.8 mm nozzle shows signs of use but I will include 5 extra 0.4 mm nozzles. I also used a bit of the included silver PLA. I've modded the printer with an acrylic door and top to create an enclosed build chamber. These mods aren't permanent so if you don't want them I can remove them. Since this is basically a like new printer, I'm hoping to get around $2800 to go towards that expensive Form 2 printer. I spent $3100 to buy the Ultimaker 2+ Extended so I hope that this is a reasonable asking price. Do let me know if you have any questions or would like more pictures. Thanks for looking! Will
  8. That sounds terrifying. Thanks for the knowledge!
  9. I am new to the 3d printing community so I apologize if this is a dumb question. I tried searching this answer up but I haven't found anything definite. I'm in the middle of a 24+ hour PLA print and the heated bed is still on. Is there a particular reason(s) why the heated bed should stay heated throughout the print? What would happen if I were to turn it off or decrease the temperature to save energy?
