ELECTRIC SHOCK FROM UM2EXTENDED+

Recommended Posts

Hi , my printer housing is live/ static charged? not sure, but it gives me a weak, constant shock whenever I touch the edge of the dibond where the aluminium is exposed on the housing, also on the guide rails, and probably various other places but that's enough shocks for now, any idea how I can resolve it?

Thanks

Rich.

Hi Toobleck,

A bit late to the party but I wanted to give you a reply anyway, for future viewers too. Gr5 gives good advice in this thread; https://ultimaker.com/en/community/6815-static-shocks-from-machine

It is most likely a static shock you are experiencing, which can build up in very dry air or when walking around (on carpet). Touching something non-conductive prior to interacting with your Ultimaker is recommended if it happens very often.
