Urgent !! UMO+ Issues. Extrude Motor / Y-Motor

Posted · Urgent !! UMO+ Issues. Extrude Motor / Y-Motor

Hi,

I have been handed a UMO+ and it has a issue i need a little advice on.

This UMO+ has a green main board that everything plugs into and i thought a part was missing. ( One of the smaller boards that plugs in for the motor control. (it was the Material feed motor) i have bought some dew ones from Amazon and they arrived. Great...... Plugged it in and still no luck.

In fact it puts out some crazy sounds from the motor on the far left upper. (Y - Motor) Plus the new motor board is very hot.

Can i have someone talk me around how best to fix the issues i have.. Happy to skype

Thanks

    Hi

    You have to adjust the current setting on the stepper driver (small board you are talking about) by measuring on the driver with a multimeter and adjusting the trim potentiometer.

    Which driver did you get? Can you post some pictures (then I might be able to guide you)

    Note that if it has a green board it is an UMO, not an UMO+.

    Also it is normal that not all driver slots are populated -- You need 4: X/Y/Z/Extruder 1; the fifth is for Extruder 2 and normally not used.

    You absolutely need a cooler on the driver chip as they get very hot -- and as @tommyph1208 says you need to adjust the power with the trimpot (should be around 1.1/1.2 Amps)

      • 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
