What printer are you referring to?

The springs in the UM2 and UM2+ family have all 3 springs the same but the UM3 has 2 stuff springs in the front and a light one in the back.

There have been changes in the springs. The latest produced models have 3 equal springs. Earlier models have one spring that is significantly less stiff, and that is supposed to go on the backside of the printer.

This has to do with the auto leveling feature. Since the firmware that was released late december/early january, the probing locations have changed. There is no longer a need for a weaker spring on the backside, so all springs were made equal.

Tom, that's interesting, can you share the Ultimaker part number of the stiff spring?  so people know what to order at the reseller if they want to replace it. I think replacing it is interesting, i always find the weak spring annoying when spreading out glue, or removing a print.

Is it the same (part number) as the Ultimaker2 springs?

I guess it's this one (UM2 part)?

No, you don't have to. It will work fine with the current one.

Labern is right, you don't need to change your spring. The newer firmware works with old and new spring.

Hello everyone, 


I unearth this topic because I am desperate to change the spring that has become too loose at the back of the board.

 

Indeed, my printer raises me an error of auto leveling with unrealistic values. I suspect the bed is not firm enough to withstand the pressure of the nozzle.

 

Can you help me find a reference for these springs? I can not find anything on the official website and on all the dealers.

 

Thanks in advance.
