Y-axis spindle pin not locked in plastic support

Posted · Y-axis spindle pin not locked in plastic support

Hi,

I have just bought a brand new ultimaker 2+ and during the build plate calibration process is stumpled across that the Y-axis spindle pin isn't fully inserted/locked into the plastic part.

I wonder if this is normal (as it should be). I tried to push gently on the pin to see if it would snap in, but it looks like the cutout in the plastic support actually is to small. I am hesitating to push with higher force in case that it isn't the intention that the pin should be completely snapped in.

Please take a look at the picture. Hope for some advise...

    HI @JSDK,

    Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your Ultimaker 2+!

    What you see is your axis which probably got loose during shipment.

    It should be clicked in the (what is called a) sliderblock, and should just snap in.

    So perhaps a little bit more force is required. But watch out where you apply the force, so you don't bent your axis. As close to the frame as possible is the best way.

    Good luck!

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
