Sliding Blocks UM3 extended

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I've had some issues with bad prints. Reason seems to be cracked sliding blocks (the white ones). New ones are delivered to me (black sliding blocks)

I'm now looking for the proper sequence to exchange these, but I can't find a manual on this.

Is there any manual/procedure for this?

Thank you very much in advance!

First... do you have any experience in these things? you machine is under warranty so I guess you could have your re-seller do it for you, they must have done a few more by now...

Personally I would prefer doing it myself as I think the transportation risk if you have to send in the printer is a higher risk.... in this case ask you re-seller for an instruction if I'm not mistaken there should be one.

Thanks for your reply.

I do have some experience working on machines. So no worries on my engineering skills ;-)

I've contacted the reseller (Coolblue :D) and I've been transferred to the dealer, to whom I've explained my problem. But I only got the parts to exchange.

In the meantime the dealer has send me some data on how to do it. I will try the solution. In the mean time tips and tricks are always welcome!

    • "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.
