Heated bed kit for UM original


Recommended Posts

Posted · Heated bed kit for UM original

Hello.

I just installed the HB kit on my UM original. All fine, except the z-stop switch.

The metal wing of the switch looks shorter than the one in the assembly guide. And actually the protruding part is not hitting it.

The microswitch in the HB kit is exactly of the same dimensions of the one I have in my UM original.

May be I did something wrong during mounting?

Thanks for your help.

    It's supposed to have a metal arm slightly longer. But no worries. I used the shorter switch also. I altered the top of the cover by gluing on a few bits of wood so that it would hit the Z switch. I used a glue gun and scrap chunks of wood. Ugly but very simple and quick to do.
