Print - Head door

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I had an issue were a printjob got stuck to the printcore and all the filament backed up inside the printhead. It took a while but i managed to clear it all! The problem is, since it happened the door of the print head won't close, its like the magnets have broken. There's always something!

 

Would anyone know why this has happened or have a solution besides taping it up?

 

Thank you!

Two ways to solve this.

 

1.) shut the door and push it down towards the print bed to bend the door arms slightly (they have bent out of shape) Use a little pressure but not alot.

 

2.) Print a door hook, there is one on thingiverse. It basically holds the door shut. I have to use this one one of my UM3s as the door keeps popping open.

Perhaps it's just the metal bracket that is bent a bit, it's explained here:

    • "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.
