Carbon filament warning

Recommended Posts

If you use carbon filament in your Ultimaker, clean the area under the print bed after each print.

Bits of carbon filament can fall through to the PCB and short out the 24v power line.

I had to remove C38 and C39 from th PCB as they had melted when a bit of filament had

fallen onto the PCB and shorted the 24v power line to the on/off switch casing.

I am now waiting for replacement caps from Farnell.
