Posted · S5 Mystery Screw

Unboxed our new S5 yesterday and a found a screw loose inside the box. It just looks to be a regular M3 x 16 screw and the head profile doesn't seem to match anything that I can see. Would anyone know where this belongs and is it something to be concerned about?

    These screws were used before the S5 for the case and other covers. So 2 options, maybe the S5 uses this kind of screw for the bottom cover or it is a "blind passenger" 🙂


    I would not worry about it, these screws (round or the new flat ones) are for cover and chassis and not for something important in the printer.

    The standard M3x16 or M3x14 screws are still used for all purposes other than the casing. But not for the bottom cover. I would check inside the build volume for a missing screw, e.g. somewhere on the bottom of the print bed.
