Strange noise from Robert's feeder....

Looks like your drivebolt is a bit dirty, there seems to be filament in between the teeth.

Sounds like there is stress on a certain part.

My first guess is your filament is grinding against something, or your wheel/bearing can't move freely.

Good luck!

Did it run successfully so far?

    Hey Sander :)

    Yep it's running great the past few days. :D

    Except for the weird noise...

    With "drive bolt" do you mean the knurled wheel of what exactly do you mean?

    thanks

    You don't have to remove it, if you remove the filament and gain some access you could probably clean it with a cloth or your fingers.

    I know, but I wanted to test if the spare knurled wheel made the same noise as my original one but the screw got stuck in the stepper motor :(

    Unclip the feeder. Check the bearng moves free and isn't 'stuck'. Also check the screw it's touching the um2 box (the one that holds the bearing) because maybe the sound it's just something shaking with the feeder vibrations.

    Could be the grommet vibrating. I'm not a big fan of the grommet version. I'm going to switch my printers back to the old way with a piece of bowden instead.

    Not saying that's absolutely what it is, but I've heard the same noise on one of my printers after I "upgraded" to the grommet version. I've also had filament slip off the bearing which never happened in my earlier versions.

    Okay I'll print the bowden version. :)

    Thanks for the tip @IRobertI!

    @Neotko : I checked the bearing and it was turning smoothly. I'll do more tests. ;)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.
