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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
