Lubrication of Print Head Axes

Recommended Posts

Posted · Lubrication of Print Head Axes

Hello,
I have a Ultimaker 3 for 3 months.
I have a question about the lubrication of the axes of the Print Head.

 

The manual describes the lubrication of the XY axes, but nothing is mentioned about the axes of the Print Head shown in the picture.

What is the lubrication procedure about those axes?
Do they need to be lubricated as the other XY axes?

 

Thank you

Hi

Short answer: yes 🙂

 

I lubricate all axes with oil (but only a very thin film, not too much) also the two Z axes (but not the Z screw).
