UMO+ pushes PTFE tube out of printhead


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UMO+ pushes PTFE tube out of printhead

I have restorated a Ultimaker original + succesfull and it is printing like a charm 

I only have one small problem when i print PLA on 200 degrees it is slowly pushing the PTFE tube out of the printhead.

this happens faster with the rapid movement of infill.

i tried to print with more heat and this slows down the problem but still i cannot leave the printer with a print of a couple of hours 😞 .

i think it has something to do with the ptfe coupler plate, i think the hole in this is to large because it is not original (original UMO parts are hard to find).

can somebody measure the hole where the coupler is plugged into, mine is bit loose.

    I think i solved the problem, I designed a new PTFE coupler plate with a smaller hole so that there is more presure on coupler so the ptfe is tighter.


    did a testprint with PLA on 200 degrees with succes

        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.
