UM3 XY steppers vibrating noise

Recommended Posts

Hi and welcome,


Looks like the endstops are not triggered when homing.


Check if they are activated (you can do this by sliding the head with your hand in both directions (x and y) and reaching the home position.


You should hear a clicking sound, if not then check why it's not touched

if you move the head in the front right, 


Prepare to click the y switch with your finger (or a screw driver)


Then home the head (using the controller). 


Before it reaches the home position click the switch it should stop going to the y direction.

And did it happen suddenly or did you for example take the feeder motor away? (could be a pinched cable).


You can check connections on the mainboard also.


If everything seems good then you should probably replace the endswitch (contact your reseller)

      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
