Strange noise from Robert's feeder....

Recommended Posts

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

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.

    • 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.
