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?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
