UM2 makes new kind of rattling noise, what could it be?

Recommended Posts

Dear Ultimakers,

My Ultimaker2 is already more than two years in function. I kept it in good condition, like sewingoil on the metal bars and the green stuff on the middle screw. Now my printer makes this rattling noise, while printing, and I am not sure where it comes from. Please click the link for the;  sound

I did note that the rattling sound is the most when the direction is going on the X ax. (At least; it is the ax parallel with the Ultimakerlogo) The rubber bands are tight enough and the metal bars are in good condition. Could the sound come from the right side on the back, or from the nozzlepart? Does somebody recognize the sound?

The only thing what is maybe to remark is that the rubberbands, both at the back, give rubber parts, like black dust, on the wheels. It shows that they give some kind of friction, although this is the matter already for some months or so.

If somebody knows that would be very helpful,

    • "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.
