Heater Cable and Sensor

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I have the ultimaker 2 extended and just finished my second roll of PLA. Was having some trouble with the other plastics provided by the seller. Turns out, they were a different size. Luckily I have an Olsson block. While dismantling the wires from the old block I found the heater cable and the sensor to be stuck in the old block. I've tried everything (sewing machine oil etc.) to get it out but it wont budge. I got in touch with the seller and asked what can be done? could I get replacement cables? He mentioned that it would cost me 300$ !!!!! so far I've had absolute horrible luck with the machine only used 2 rolls of plastic and 2 months have gone by since it's been broken down. I'm super disappointed with both the machine and the service. Anyone else have any ideas??

    • "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.
