Z axis interference problems

Recommended Posts

Hi,

It looks like there is a manufacturing problem with my UM3, as you can see the, platform support is rubbing both on the side motor covers as well as the back panel of the machine.  I am unable to run a print and with the spool holder its even worse.

it looks like the back panel is either damaged or defectiveIMG_0330.thumb.JPG.5f9b979c84838633446a272a8cfc1e38.JPGIMG_0329.thumb.JPG.bdd8e8ec669826540885e535f1dace0f.JPG

I had the issue on the second image -- a squeeze back in fixed that rubbing for me.

The back panel was definitely not bent on mine though.

Were any of the styrofoam pieces broken as you unpacked it?

One piece was broken on mine which led me to inspect it for a while.

All this usually points to mishandling by carriers -- time to have a good talk with your shipping company (in my case, it was FedEx).

    • "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.
