Shocking printer

Are you talking about static discharge while it is off? That can happen especially after unboxing.

In the other case (a printer that would charge up by the power supply), please contact your reseller.

Outside warranty so it would cost me.

 

It’s not static I knew that and now I also know why.

as it always seemed to be when the cores were heating up I checked at the print head.  Well it looks like the braided wire has frayed and some of the wires that go down to the block were sticking out and potentially touching the bar. 

So I used some black insulating tape and taped up any of the wire. 

Boom solved. No longer doing the electric boogie lol.

looks like I’m buying a new cable. ?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
