M3 Tension nut/screw in extruder on UM2+

Recommended Posts

I have ben having a recurring problem with under extrusion, and grinding from the UM2+ and after many frustrating hours, and failed prints, i discovered that the small M3 Nut in the extruded has stripped its threads and so the tension on any flames was incorrect, so causing the under extrusion and on thicker filaments (3mm) excessive grinding.

If any other user has had this problem then i'd like to hear, or alternatively if any user is getting these problems, just swap out the M3 nut and screw from the extruder and hopefully problem solved.

 

hope this helps anybody with similar problems

    • "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.
