Original + extrudor movement (


Recommended Posts

Posted · Original + extrudor movement (

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.
