Long belts rubbing against the pulleys

Hello Forum

I noticed that the long belts are rubbing against some of the pulleys.

The rods are not moving back and forth, the pulley are close to the black spacers, no play at all.

For me this does not look very healthy for the belts, albeit the rubbing seems not to be too bad (no grinded belt particles on the bottom nor twisted belts).

If I would put the pulleys in a line with the belt, so the belts wouldn't rub anymore against the pulleys, the rods would move back and forth.

Should I place washer between the black spacers and the pulleys to fix this problem?

Or is it negligible?

And:

Does this effects the print quality?

Thank you very much,

Martin

    Some people have printed new spacers to fix this. I don't think there is anything to worry about though. My prints have been just fine and I have the same issue.

    But it's good to try and fix it if possible. You might learn a thing or 2 :)

    Thank you for your quick replies!

    I was wondering if this affects the printing quality (as well as the belt lifetime) so I think I will fix this.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
