Posted (edited) · How to adjust UM3 Camera Angle/Focus

We just got our 2 UM3 Extendeds in last Friday, and one of the first things I noticed was that the camera angle and focus is a bit off. I've skimmed through the manuals and some of the forum posts. Has anyone figured out how to adjust this? The camera's on the UM3's are great and It'd be really nice to get the full use out of them. I've taken 3 photos, one of the focus roughly where the printer would be printing, one where the focus really is, and one of the printer while printing. Anything anyone has to help would be greatly appreciated.

    I had a look at mine, the lens is of the screw on type, so I assume if it's not screwed in enough or too much it will be out of focus. I can't adjust mine, so it may have a bit of glue in it, not sure but I don't want to put much force on it...

    I'm sure fbrc8 will help, if they send you a new unit it's super easy to replace, just a few screws and one connector. You may want to check if you can adjust yours....

      • 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.
