Power cord

Recommended Posts

I wish to very seriously and sincerely complain about the power plug for the Ultimaker Extended 2 +,

it's some how so short that it doesn't securely slot into its socket? For so many times the machine stops in the middle of a print because the power cord falls out simply due to the vibration of the printing process itself.:angry:

Otherwise, its a great machine.

make sure the connector is fully plugged in. it has a safety function against falling out. you may have to pull back the cover of the connector to be able to fully plug it in.

That is probably it. By pushing it in with the sleeve pulled back, it will snap in place and you won't be able to pull it out. Good luck! (also check that you don't insert it upside down).

Holy crap! I have owned a Ultimaker 3 since release and never knew this. I resorted to printing a bracket to hold the cable in place securely.

    • "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.
