UM2+ axle out of round

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2+ axle out of round

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if someone had to handle an out-of-round axle on an Ultimaker 2+ (upgraded from UM2). My right y-axle seems to have this issue, you can see two videos of the problem here:

Prints are still running fine, but I am concerned this might become a real issue in the (very near) future.

Do you think I need to replace the whole axle and if so, where could I buy it?

Thanks!
