Hello Forum:

Since a few weeks im having a strange sound in my machine (U2) the sounds comes from the Upper- left - back corner of the machine (if you're seeing it frontally) its like the short has a sort of friction with the pulley (red circles) the motor is all the way down, so the belt is really tight, but it somehow tends the lean to the right. The motor Pulley (not seen in the picture) is like 1mm or less away from the steeper motor... should i replace the short belt for a new one, or theres some other stuff i need to check before?

many thanks in advance.

If you have some space between the motor pulley and the side panel maybe you can reposition the pulley a bit further from the motor?

You'll need to get the motor cover off (2 screws)

Take the motor off (4 screws)

Untighten the pulley retighten it (make sur it's well fixed) and be carefull with the screw it's easy to damage.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
