Really terrible grinding issue on the ultimaker original

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

So all of a sudden my ultimaker original suddenly stopped extruding anything. My first reaction was to change the tension on the extruder drive. I tried this several times with no difference. I also completely cleared out the nozzle and aluminum block with a blow torch so I know for a fact that it is clean. Whenever I try to print there is instant grinding and it is unable to push the filament at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated because until I fix this, it is impossible to print at all.

Thanks in advance

    • "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.
