Hi ,

Our Ultimaker 3 is making an horrible noise :

At first we thought it was lack of lubrication but after even after lubrication  of all rods (threaded and non threaded) the noise is still there ...

 

Does anyone have an idea how to solve this ? 

Thanks

Best

    I've heard worse noises but not this particular noise.  I'm pretty sure it will print just fine but I assume it's bothering the nearby humans?

    it bother people a bit (but its normal in a fablab ) but I would like to solve it  because it feels like  metal is grinding somewhere which is not good on the long term ...

    old problem and maybe you fixed it, but sounds like you used the gear oil instead of the ptfe goop to lube the z screw

    Hey Ke20. I had the exact same issue with my 2+ after greasing the Z-axis screw with lithium grease. I removed the lithium grease and applied PTFE grease, which immediately solved the problem. Hope that helps!

      • 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
