What is making this sound?

Hi! 🙂


My Ultimaker 2 is making some squeaky sounds when printing. Hear this: 



It seems to come from the belts or something. But I don't really know. Everything is oiled and quite clean. What can I do to reduce this sound?

    Hi oskars,


    Right, this sounds like one of the belts is climbing on the side of a pulley. Normally this will create particles in the bottom of the printer (one of the four corners) and this will collect up here as small black ones..

    The two short belts might be addressed, if one the pulleys is coming loose this might happen.
