Posted · UMO+ Bed scrachy sound up/down

Hi,

I'm assembling my umo+ kit. And after assembling the bed it does a sound up and down like a 'scratchy' sound, sandy, don't know how to describe it. It's greased as the manual says. I though was that after aligning the linear z it was going to go but it doesn't. I have not assembly the head/board yet since I wanted to do that last.

Here's the video this morning before screwing the z linear bearings. (greased)

 

Here's the video a few minutes ago (applied more grease).

 

It's this normal? My other umo+ goes up and down smothly (that other I bough preassembled).

The sound seems to come from the z rod.

    Took the z screw off and the noise comes from the big linear bearings. Unscrew the x8 ones and did align all again. The sound it's there. There's friction going down. The bearings release some kind of oil naturally and I read somewhere that z shafts don't need oil. What could I do?

    Yup I have this noise too, always had it. As you say its the linear bearings. It causes a little extra friction on mine too.No idea what causes it, but it doesn't seem to affect the operation.

        (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.
