Ultimaker with Hot End V2 and possible colision fan/z-stage

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker with Hot End V2 and possible colision fan/z-stage

As it said in the title :| :

I have assembled a 3D printer Ultimaker with the Hot end V2. :)

I don't actually think this is an hot end V2 issue but i don't know. :?

I was calibrating the head with the z-stage. 8-)

The z-stage was at the top. :roll:

When i get the header to go from left back side to right back side of the machine, there was a colision between the air flow controler (under the fan) and the z-stage. :cry:

I tried to move the limit switch but i can't make it go futher... :x

So this is what upset me. What if the header is going from the left back side to the right back side

and there is a colision between the air flow controler box and the z-stage ? :?:

May the head 'll be damaged... :evil:

I don't think it 'll append but there is a possibility...

Thanks for your attention and for yours answers.

regards,

TigrouxMaker

I don't think your head will be damaged. I managed to do the same when I got my printer half a year ago. It's still printing fine.

And this was with a V1 hotend, so it doesn't depend on the hotend used. You simply should avoid the far end of the Y axes at Z0. It's only a few mm I think. And it might depend on your fan shroud (there are many designs of these on thingiverse)

Thanks for your answer, i tought i was alone with this problem :'(

There is two solution. Get the limit switch futher (we need to drill the wood).

It is possible to modify the air flow controler too.

    • "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.
