Shocking printer

Recommended Posts

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. ?

    • "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.
