Loud grinding noise on rapid x axis movement

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Loud grinding noise on rapid x axis movement

Hi everyone, I've had my ultimaker 2+ for about a month.

I've recently started hearing a loud grinding noise when starting a new layer. It seems to be coming from the x axis motor.

I just aligned the axles and it seems to have worsened.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbBEpFq6yos

Doesn't sound serious to me. It seems like it happens on travel moves only and only during layer change. As though it's doing the Z and X move at the same time which is not how it normally works. Anyway I've heard much worse sounds. I don't think anything is getting damaged.

Thanks for the reply, any ideas as to what might be causing it or how to diagnose or prevent it.

Is indeed from the Cura, and proceed to in 2 axes. (X and / or Y and Z)

You can using this sound reproduction in which you gcode this.

Again - I think it's fine. Not a problem as far as I can see and hear.
