feeder move wrong direction (UM2)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

The feeder motor of my UM2 not spin well, first of all, it seems cannot move well, then it spins wrong direction when remove and insert material.

Following is the veido for your reference:

When remove material, motor spin clockwise, then I pushed insert material button, it spins anti clockwise.

 

This printer not connect with PC, we print file only via SD card, I am not sure if SD card affect the firmware or not.

Hi

If you have dismantled the feeder and reassembled it you have possibly put it back in such a way that the filament is inserted on the wrong side of the shaft.

Owen, thanks for your reply, yes I reassembled the feeder before, and I am sure it at correct direction, since it worked appropriate for quite long time, before the above problem happened.

I would like you to install the latest Ultimaker 2 firmware through Cura, just to be sure.

Then do a factory reset, if any values have been changed they are back to normal.

If both of these option have no solution, your motor is probably broken.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
