Right block touching upper frame


Recommended Posts

Posted · Right block touching upper frame

Hi Everyone,

i just started building my ultimaker and

i am having issue with the right block that is touching the upper frame and i can't seems to work it out, can anyone give me advice on it?

i am also having issue with the x and y axis alignment, when i try to move the extruder it does not moving smooth.

i tried to release the end stop a little bit like i read on the other thread but it doesn't solve it.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Ben.

    Yes, send pics... because something sounds very wrong. The left and right blocks should be about 1cm away from touching the frame. The front and back ones run just a few mm from the top plate of the frame, but the side ones shouldn't have any chance of problems at all.

    The most I can say without pictures is that you should make sure that you have the correct blocks on the correct rails. The clamp that holds the smaller rail should be on the same plane as the larger rails on which the blocks are mounted on.

    As for the alignment, reference the thread started right before this one in the assembly category. (At least peruse the whole thread)

    Hope this helps.

    Please post pictures so we can help you more.
