Advice re. Wiring connectors

Recommended Posts

hi, I've been spending this afternoon freshening up my UM2, replacing Bowden tube, coupler,heater cartridge and temp. sensor (and cursing the sadistic designer!) Got everything done ok but I appear to have dislodged a connector from the board, a orange and brown wired one. There appears to be an identical unattached connector about halfway up the sleeve to the head. I haven't pulled at it for fear of disconnecting something else. Can anybody advise where they should go?

Yes, there is a spare cable there that fills no purpose. I noticed that when I got hold of an old UM2 head for my UMO+.

Yeah, I seem to recall something like that too... will have to dig out my pre-upgrade UM2 head when I get home, see what the spare looks like.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
