Original + extrudor movement (

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, this is my first participation in this community, I hope that within a short time I can contribute to answers rather than questions.

I bought a Original Plus in Kit and just finished its assembly. It was not an easy task, did not come with instructions and the only guide is a PDF written in English available on the ultimaker site.

I turned the motor leads to the E1 connector board.

The engine of extrador makes moves to advance and retreat. Do rotations in both directions.

Can anyone help?

Thank's

A video would help - please post a 5 second video. Also indicate your country in your profile settings location.

The extruder is supposed to turn both directions if it is printing something and doing a retraction. But maybe you mean it turns both directions before then? Again, a video would help.

Usually if the servos are acting strangly, vibrating, stopping/starting, switching directions unexpectedly, usually that is caused by the stepper driver being too hot. Make sure the fan on the bottom is working properly!

Also there could be a bad connection on the DIR signal to the extruder - it may be floating. More on that after you eliminate the first two possibilities.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
