Feeder rotates the wrong way.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Feeder rotates the wrong way.


English isn’t my first language.


At my school we have a Ultimaker2 wich I use very often, but the feeder spins the wrong direction and I don’t know how. It worked perfectly before and when I wanted to change the plastic it happened. My software is up to date (4.0) but it happened long before.

I had this problem before but that fixed magically. I can’t find anything on the web.

If anybody has the same problem ore knows a possible solution, pleas reply.

Sounds like it has the wrong firmware. The Ultimaker 2+ has an additional gear in the extruder, which means that the extruder needs to be inversed. If you have an Ultimaker 2+ (or upgraded Ultimaker 2) with Ultimaker 2 firmware, or vice versa (an Ultimaker 2 with Ultimaker 2+ firmware), the extrusion will be inversed.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
