One of mine fell off the table and broke one of the prongs....so my 2+ upgrade had to make do with one!


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.

    • "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.
