Ultimaker Original X-Axis Sticking

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

We have had our ultimaker original for about a year and a half now and we have started to encounter an issue with our X axis getting stuck at random places along the rods while moving right. This causes prints to drift drastically across the bed to the left before it starts hitting the X endstop. Everything I have read is about the belts and from my testing it doesn't seem like the belts are the problem. I also took the stepper motor off the belts and tested that it was still in full working order.

Here is a video of the problem occurring when I manually move the axis using the Ulticontroller.

 

Thanks for the help!

    • "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.
