Clicking sound on bondtech

Recommended Posts

Hello !

I recently changed my PLA supplier (now PLA economy from Colorfabb) in 2.2kg spool and I started to hear clicking sound on both my UM2+.

I have bondtech feeders, tinkergnome and (normally) I set everything up correctly. I do not have underextrusion at all... I tried to loose the tensionning screw on the feeder and to increase the printing speed but I still have this (VERY ANNOYING) clicking sound. It occurs each 5 or 10 seconds.

Maybe I did not hear it before because of the size of the spool and the lack of resonance... 

Do you have an idea ? 

 

If you need any extra info and/or pics, do not hesitate ! I am note sure what could be of use here...

 

Thanks a lot 😃

If you start to hear clicking sounds when putting a 2.2kg spools on the back instead of the standard 750-1000 gram, the last thing you should do is speed up the print, and loosen the tension, try the other way around.

    • 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.
