Play on axle on my S3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Play on axle on my S3

I've notice some play on the axle of my s3 printer.  Pretty much describe in this page https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011529260-Check-for-play-on-the-Ultimaker-S5-axles. However this page say it should not have any play but say nothing about how to solve it.  Really doubt that recalibrate the head removes the play in the axial.  Anybody know what to do with that?

    Here you have instructions how to align the axles, but to fix the play it is basically the same.



    When you have just one axle then it is enough to open the set screw and push the pulley to the cover and tighten the screw again. More details in the document.


    The instructions on the UM website are offline for some reasons. I already reported it to UM that they put the instructions back online.
