stepper motor failed on UM2. specs for ordering a new one?

Recommended Posts

so the X axis stepper motor on my machine failed, its really hard to turn and it sticks and feels nasty while trying to rotate it, i assume the bearings or something failed (i plan to take it apart to check it out later). although at 1300 hours of print time im not upset about it. but i'd like to know the specs of it so i can order a new one. i took a photo of the ID tag on the motor but its in an arcane language and im sure the ancient sacred text to translate it has been lost in a deep forgotten catacomb.

why does ultimaker not sell the stepper motors their printers use on their website? even their canadian distributor (im from canada) doesn't supply them.

Contact your local reseller he should be able to sell them to you (even if not listed (yet)).

I believe you can find the specs on the github:

It's a NEMA17 motor

The thing written on the label gave me this result in google:

    • "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.
