UM2+ axle out of round

Recommended Posts

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!

      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.
