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

    Hi and welcome to the community,

    It looks indeed that the backpanel has taken a rough hit, it should be flat, probably was damaged during transport...

    I would advise you to contact the reseller with these pictures in order to replace the machine

    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).

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
