Lost a grub screw from a pulley


Recommended Posts

Posted · Lost a grub screw from a pulley


I've managed to lose the grub screw from one of the pulleys on the the non-driven rod for my Y axis.

I've no idea when it came out and only noticed because during a semi-regular check of the machine that the pulley was able to move along the rod.

Has anyone else sourced one of these in the past and if so then do you know the size & thread details, or is the quicker solution to just get a replacement pulley?

    My ultimaker is currently running perfectly WITHOUT four of the grub screws.

    I removed grub screws from the pulleys on the driven axle of both x and y axes. I think this allows the belt tension to be more even around the whole belt, as well as making the whole axis drive less overconstrained.

    That said I could send you a grub screw :p

      • 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
