UM2 crackling noise on X-axis


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 crackling noise on X-axis

Hi all,

I just got a brand new UM2 extended. During the third print, I noticed ominous noises when the X-axis (the one from front to back is the X-axis, right?) was moving. It's a crackling noise that is also there when the axis is moved by hand and corresponds to about every half-turn of the drive shaft.

See the video below - very pronounced towards the end.

I checked as much as I could without taking anything apart yet, do you guys have an idea what could be causing it?

    Don't know about the clicking/crackling sound but it's interesting to hear that you get the same 'grinding' noise that one or two of us get when the head moves from right to left while retract is on. ( starts at about 14 seconds in ).

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
