Hello,

I need some help on a issue regarding z-axis, my original UM 2 z-axis motor not working properly anymore.

I have an original UMO motor+ z-axis lead screw and i want to use as a replacement .

And the question is , do i have to modify the firmware for this to work? and where.

If anybody made a modification about this, i apreciated some help. Original UM2 z lead screw is 10 mm with 4 start screw (i believe), and the UMO has 12 mm  1 or 2 start lead screw  and i dont know anything about the pitch or so.

Below picture with modification i need, i measure earlyer the UMO 12 mm Lead screw travel 3 mm per revolution instead of UM2 type lead screw wich travel 8 mm per revolution.

Thank You

Sergiu

I believe i found the settings:

In configuration.h

// #define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {80.0,80.0,200,282} // default steps per unit for ultimaker2 (for 8 mm rods)

#define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {80.0,80.0,200.0*8/3,282} // default steps per unit for ultimaker2 (for 12 mm rods)

Testing tomorrow

    • "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.
