Extruder Motor Not Working

Recommended Posts

Posted · Extruder Motor Not Working

Hello,

I just finished assembling my new Ultimaker, but I have a problem with the extruder motor- it is only moving back and forth in small steps? After I have heated the extruder, I have tried to extrude something using Cura but when you send the command the motor just moves back and forth? Any ideas on how I can resolve this? Is it possible that there is a problem with my board?

Thanks.

Brian

just asking, is the little small white plastic wheel from the extruder motor very tight againt the large extruder wood wheel ?

if you have positioned the extruder motor to close back against the wood wheel, that maybe could cause problems`?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
