UM3 Small shift after only 15 prints?


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 Small shift after only 15 prints?

Hi everyone 🙂

I have recently bought a UM3 (1 week ago) and it have made around 15 perfect prints, of the same print.

When it came to the last print, it made a shift, I thought it was just a 1 time issue, i then made 1 more print

but it really made a bad print. I have seached the forum for all the adwise, and I have checked/lubricated everything, 

just wondering if you have any good inputs after looking at my pictures?

Regards Nicolai

    Check your pulleys if they are really tight enough, also the ones from the short belts. Additionally, check if there is some play on the axles when you try to push the axles fore- and backward. There are also good instructions on the UM website, how to check the play and how to solve that issue.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
