Sliding Blocks UM3 extended


Recommended Posts

Posted · Sliding Blocks UM3 extended

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!
