Axle Belt Box is Cracked... Is this an issue?

Posted (edited) · Axle Belt Box is Cracked... Is this an issue?

So I just noticed that both of these Axle Belt Boxes (I'm not sure what the proper name for them is) in the picture are cracked. Is this a potential issue now or in the future and if so how to I fix/replace them?

Thanks!

    Fixeable yes. But call your reseller. Fixing it yourself would require quite a few hours and isn't easy at all for a new user.

    There is an Ultimaker 3 support group on facebook and a few people had similar issues. It looks like Ultimaker switched from the white blocks to black blocks and I haven't seen anyone have any issues with the black blocks. Here is the link to the FB thread on here. https://ultimaker.com/en/community/39047-ultimaker-3-facebook-group

    Afaik the problem is that a % of the white slideblocks do crack because the white color has a different flexibility (or something like that) than the black color. So, White do crack... Ergo, call reseller, get it fixed :D

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
