Hi there !

I got a new UM3 last week. So far I'am very satisfied but something is bothering me.

During a retraction there is a noise like a bip and I don't know if it is normal or not. Retraction speed 25mm/s distance 5mm with PLA extruder 200°. Gcode generated with Cura. See video.

 

 

Thanks for your help !

David

    I dunno. But, I can tell you this: My UM3E was the first 3D printer I ever had or been around, So, I just sorta assumed that was the way it is supposed to be. It may be because of the very quick speeds it operates at. Sorry I ain't gots more to give on this one. It has just been a constant in my experience.
