Grinding Noise during Travel on UM2+

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have an Ultimaker 2+ Extended and for awhile now, it makes this loud grinding noise whenever it is printing or traveling in the y direction (I think). The prints are fine and I've also tried lubricating the axes but this grinding noise that it's generating is obnoxious to say the least.

Any ideas on what I can do to remedy the situation?

Will

Thanks for the quick responses. I checked to make sure that the shafts were not hitting the side panels. I had that happen before and I moved them back into place.

Here's a link to a quick video I made that shows the noise generated whenever printing. Hope it helps.

I've checked the slider blocks and none of them are hitting the belts. I also adjusted the pulleys to make sure they were centered but I am still experiencing the noise. It seems to be originating from the far left corner where you "home head" but no matter how I move the pulleys, the grinding noise still happens.
