Problem Ultimaker 3

Recommended Posts

Hello to all. Unfortunately I get back here talking to expose another issue concerning my Ultimaker 3. While I was doing a press, known of the extruder jumps, control and I see those cracks that are visible from the pictures that I post. I am sorry that this happens, I hope you can help me. Thank you.

This happened to me as well.  The good news is that the fix is reasonably easy to implement.  I say reasonably because I am not that dexterous and found it somewhat hard to get the new slider on and so designed this aid:

Ultimaker Sliding Block Fitting Jig Thing

I only used it on the x-axis so am not 100% sure that it will fit the y-axis.

I also found that wrapping the two cracked sliders with cable ties, secured as tightly as possible and positioned to not get in the way of anything, had me back running until I got the replacement parts.

    • "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.
