    While those STLs would be cool to have available, you don't really need them for this. Just move the head to a corner of the machine and you'll have to go full on HULK SMASH! to bend the axes.

    I did not have them, but unmounted and remounted the head recently.

    So I went ahead, measured and created them myself. Fits nicely.

    Hello to all.

    According to you when he is the right time to change the belts and axes of UM2 printer?

    There is no rule or timing related to printing hours worked?

    Your Ultimaker fell of the table?? oh boy!

    You can consider replacing a belt if you start to see more slack in them. If you frequently see black 'dust' under your motors it could also be an indication to replace your belt at some point. The replacing will not remove the dust, it is parts of your belts rubbing against your pulley.. but it can affect the quality of the belt. You should take a look at the alignment of your rods, when there is a lot of dust.

    This is not related to printing hours.

    No no no no.....I dropped one of the alignment pieces and it broke when it hit the floor. (I then had to rescue it from a kitten who thought it was a new toy)
