UM original+ extruder wheel jams

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We have an Ultimaker Original+ that has a tendency to jam, because the plastic part of the delrin wheel shifts sideways on the metal bearing until it's pressed up against the wall, and no longer turns. This causes underextrusion or even for the print to fail entirely. There is no real pattern to how often this happens, sometimes it'll print fine for ages and sometimes it will go wrong three times in a row. It's easy to push the plastic wheel back into the centre so it turns again, but I would really rather it just stays there. Other than replacing the delrin wheel, is there anything I can do to stop this happening?

    • "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.
