Wrong head in "wrong" place..

Recommended Posts

Posted · Wrong head in "wrong" place..

I accidentally mounted the first head in the right position (most towards the back).. And when reading the guide I should have the right (second) head a bit higher than the first?!

Would it be possible for me just to have the left a bit higher (as this is my second head) than the other one? Or do I need to switch place on these two (I think i just can switch cables though)?

    sorry, mist your post earlier...

    Change the wiring would be enough I guess.

    Mounting of the hotends is the same as well, so you should be able to adjust the front one a little higher.

    While printing you need them at exactly at the same height.

    X/Y offset's can stay the same, when selecting the print in cura, remember that (standard) green coloured part is for hotend 1 and the red is for 2.

    I think youre printing area is about 20 mm smaller, be careful with that!!

    Hotend 2 hits your bed levelling screws in the back, countersink those anyhow to avoid damage. But the print will fall of the bed. you loose 20mm in the front of the machine.

        (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.
