Z leadscrew grease


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Z leadscrew grease

It doesn't get particularly hot so any ordinary grease is fine.  There was a little green packet of grease.  This is for the Z screw only - not any other part of the printer.  You don't need any oil for parts with ball bearings which is the 2 vertical rods and the 2 rods that go through the head - oil can even make ball bearings have *more* friction.  The other 4 rods in the upper edges need occasional oil - any thin petroleum oil is fine.  Such as 3-in-one oil or sewing machine oil.

    The Original grease is called Magnalube-G, Its a really good teflon grease. You can buy small amounts of it if you want to go with the original grease, Just google search it and find some close to you.

    Hello everybody, this is Lazack.

    I'm new in the forum and I'm the proud possessor of a UM2 Ext.

    I bought it from a guy who forgot to send me the Magnalube grease.

    The problem is that here in Italy they don't sell Magnalube.

    I was thinking to buy this product:

    Do you think it may duly replace the original grease?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Regards

    Lazack

    It's not a special grease. You don't need high temperature grease or condctive grease or anything special.

      • 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.
