Little hint: Squeeking noise when using the UM3 without the spool holder

Recommended Posts

I recently removed the spool holder and then my UM3 startet to make a very nasty noise when the head moved from front to back (left to right and Z were ok).

After I've checked all screws, axles, cleaned & lubricated everything (originally to find another issue), I realized that I still had the NFC cable blend on the UM3. As the spool holder is not mounted, this little beast resonated with the print head movement -.- After removing it, it's quiet again :)

Just a little hint if anybody who has not mounted the spool holder has the same issue.

    • "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.
