Headed bed scraping on backplate

Recommended Posts

I purchased an original Ultimaker with dual extruders and an upgraded heat bed. I see a scrape mark on the inside back of the Ultimaker and it also makes some strange clicking sounds as the bed goes up and down the Z-axis. I looked at the installation pdf and on the back of the heat bed there is a metal tab with a hole in it and I believe this is scraping on the back of the Ultimaker making a scrape mark as well as the clicking sound. Or so I am assuming this is what is causing it. I can't see anything else.

Anyway my question or observation is, I would not think this tab should be scraping the back, should it? I assume I can just maybe sand a channel out for this to clear?

Thanks

    • "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.
