Ultimaker Original+ Extrusion Issue: Wheel not Turning

Recommended Posts

Hi-

I put together my UMO+ last week, and I got a few good prints from it. Then, I changed the filament color and the big wooden "extrude" wheel isn't turning, I made the flowrate 150%, and the wheel is now turning very, very slowly with major underextrusion. I ran the printer without the wheel, and found the little black gear is turning just fine. Also- my kit shipped with one less washer and the Delrin clip broke. So, right now my printer is running with one washer and no clip. The knurled nut is far enough so that a portion of the depressed part of the nut is sticking out? Have any of you experienced this?

Thanks-

Caleb

    • "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.
