Ultimaker 3 extended nozzle cover part broke off. Need help fixing it.

 

Hello so my UM3 extended was printing just fine until the nozzle cover broke off and the plastic or rubber bit on the inside that holds nozzles split in two. I have gotten the cover back on but the nozzles have been having trouble with getting stuck or not retracting properly due to thDisplaying IMG_9358.JPGe damaged cover.

 

Is there any way I can fix this? Or get replacement parts?  Thank you for your time

Hi, in general the printer works also without this cover.

If you buy the maintenance kit, there are 5 spares:

you can also get only the silicone parts pretty cheap:

Thank you for those links. I have managed to just tape up the cover and its back to printing but I am a little worried about fire danger and what not. Do you know if there is a parts list for the printer online anywhere? It would be nice to know the proper names and dimensions for each part.

Hi,

 

I haven’t found any kind of technical spare parts list. I usually keep the UM3 maintenance kit and the belt set in stock, to make sure to fix small issues just in time.

You could get the measurements by just measuring your printer ;)

 

On you concern with the tape: I’m printing since more than a year with one of my printers (UM3E) without the silicone cover. I’m only printing stuff that doesn’t need special bridging abilities or very high precision. So I don’t really care about the the airflow not being perfectly.

I haven’t made any other bad experiences with the lack ob the cover - but no guarantee ;)

I guess I could do that. But I feel just a bit lazy when it comes to measuring stuff. Sadly I am in love with printing all things precision and voronoi so airflow is a bit important but you never know until you try ; )
