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.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
