Which rod goes with which axis?

Recommended Posts

Hello UM community,

I just bought a UM2 on eBay and when it arrived both rods holding the printhead had detached, I noticed that one is slightly longer than the other.

Which axis does the longer rod go with? Front/back or left/right?

Thanks!

Can you not just hold them in place inside the frame an check? it should be fairly obvious...

 

They both fit in both ways.

The X is the shorter of the two, as verified in these two documents.

I assume the X axis is the left/right one based on what I see in Cura and common sense?

    • "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.
