Noisy retraction UM3

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
