Lube your UM2

Recommended Posts

Every once in while, you need to lube that machine.

After applying all the lube, I run this program:

 

G21 ; metric valuesG90 ; absolute positioningM107 ; no fan, pleaseG28 X0 Y0 Z0G1 X30 Z5 F6000  ; move the platform to nozze or the nozze to the platform. What-ever!G1 X30 Z2 F240  ; move the last 3 mm with reduced speed - WHEW!G1 X0 Z200 F6000 ; And move back down/up again - whoohoooo!; I don't know GCode as well as others; maybe you can just do a circle?!; Move around a bit in X and Y ...G1 X0 Y0 ;G1 X223 Y0 ;G1 X223 Y223 ;G1 X0 Y223 ;G1 X0 Y0 ;; Aaaand again - cuz it was fuuhn!G1 X223 Y0 ;G1 X223 Y223 ;G1 X0 Y223 ;G28 X0 Y0 Z0 ; Back to HOMEM84 ; disable motorsM106 S0

 

Feel free to modify it to your specs.

CAUTION: Your printer might have different specs! Adjust all X and Y values to your printers' specs!

    • "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.
