Hi ultiarjan,

thanks - I bought my UM2 at igo3d ;-).

But in there online shop I cannot find this spare part :-(.

Do I have to contact them by eMail to ask for this part?

    Yes. They should be able to deliver every part.... but they probably don't have all parts in stock. I know as a comparison that makerpoint, the Dutch reseller has spareparts of almost all components but not the xy axis. Can very well be an availability issue at ultimaker..

    thanks to @ulttiarjan.

    Just one further question. I found out that both 8mm Y-Axis are not 100% straight.

    But how straight are the axes really if they come from manufacturer?

    If e.g. I measure that the middle of one Y-axis is 0.2 mm off center then the printheads movement is also inacurate.

    That means the head each turn moves up, down, forward and back by 0.2 mm and this can cause the gaps I have - or not?
