Play in X/Y axis UM2+


Recommended Posts

Posted · Play in X/Y axis UM2+



I'm using an old ultimaker 2 (2014) upgraded in 2+ end of 2016

During a long print (12h+), I realized that my print was shifting on the left.

It happens at the end of the print (obviously...) and I have quickly checked the pulleys, the usual culprit.

Every thing was looking fine but I have tightened all the screws to be sure.

At the end, I always check if any axle have some play and to my surprise, the left y axle was moving in both direction!

I have tried to tighten the grub screws again but no matter the amount of force, It still moves.


Any suggestion?


thx  for your help!
