Cracks on Sliding blocks

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cracks on Sliding blocks

Isn't easy nor hard, but without experience is hard. I would ask IGO to fix the issue. Also @labern made an adapter to keep it 'close & tight' so they keep working without cracking more. But afaik his published design is only for left/right blocks, since front/bottom with this can hit prts of the machine (like z shafts or the printhead on the front)

    I've got exactly the same problem. Pretty soon after I got the UM3 I noticed a crack in the back sliding block. Now 2 months later I see that two other ones have the same problem. Although it doesn't look very hard to replace them yourself, I guess it's wiser to bring it back to the shop. My main concern however is, is this a construction issue. I have the impression. So, what guarantees that the problem is not going to occur again. Aren't the guys from UM following these forums? It would be great if they could comment.

    Directly after I posted the previous message I sent a mail to the shop. 5 minutes later I got a reply (it's 9:30 PM over here, what a service !). The shop will take sure UM sends 4 new blocks ASAP. Seems like UM is aware.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.
