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!

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
