Posted · Linear shaft fell

1 mounth using new ultimaker 3, all is ok. Today, when it works, linear shaft jumped out of the groove (1 photo). I noticed that right part or linear shaf is fixed with black сylinder which blocks him (2 photo), but on the left part there is no cilinder (3 photo). Unfortunately my seller is in another country, i have no possibility to visit him. How can I better act in this situation. Can this item be ordered somewhere ... Thanks!

    Hi,

    On that pulley there is no black spacer. Are the pulleys on that rod fixed? If the dubble pulley isn't fixed, you can push the pulley to the frame and screw up the screws...

    Now the rod must be fixed and he isn't be able move anymore.

    Have you looked inside the printer for the spacer? Since the rod got loose there's a good chance the spacer fell off and is hiding in the printer somewhere. It is _very_ unlikely it got out of the factory without the spacer, almost impossible I would say.

    Turn the printer upside down and shake it a bit :)

    This can happen if one or more of the set screws aren't tight enough on the rod to hold the pulley in place. Make sure you go through all the pulleys and tighten the set screw on each.

    IRobertl thanks. One of the set screws (photo) wasn't tight enough on the rod to hold the pulley in place.

    There is no spacer on that pulley...

    You can just tight the pulley!

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
