Copper Grease

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My Ultimaker Original + kit came with copper grease, but the instructions never involved it. I've built the bot and it works great, but where is the copper grease supposed to go?

Bonus question: Do I ever have to apply lubricant to the linear rails?

Thanks

When assembling threaded components such as a nut and bolt apply copper grease to the threads, this can prevent the components from rusting and seizing together. Copper grease can withstand temperatures of 400 C degree

Weird on the help area don't say anything about the head x/y oil. I been doing it for a year and mine works great...

For the Z screw I use a chain oil like @Dim3nsioneer said on a post

And works like a charm.
