Any advice how to tighten pulley on left stepper motor?

Posted · Any advice how to tighten pulley on left stepper motor?

Dear all,


Concerning my post how to solve shifted layer issue, I try to tighten the pulley on the left stepper motor (see photo pasted hereunder)

I removed the metal shield, I loosened the whole mechanism, but I find difficulty to understand how I can tighten the pulley again?

Is there some kind of manual or video or images where I can find the procedure to re-assemble it?

I have a problem to reach the pulley with the hexagon screwdriver, how do I do that?

Thanks for your help?

    Thank you @Emerald, your link is very helpful. Still I am missing information how to tighten the pulley connected most nearby the left stepper motor (photo attached)

    Shouldn't I have loosened it? Or do I need to tighten it befóre re-assembling the short -belt block sitting around it?

      • 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
