Unboxing and setting

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I finally got my machine. The beginning is promising. :-P

 

I have a problem. When the head come to me. Head against the lock keeps the glass. :eek: :shock:

 

It is impossible for me to adjust the head 1mm! :oops:

 

How to the parameter? :sad:

I'm not sure if this has been fixed in firmware yet as I haven't updated in a while, you can try updating the firmware first and see if that stops this from happening.

If it doesn't you can swing the clip out and bend it down a bit with a pair of pliers to keep it from hitting the fan shroud (I did this on my machine). Or you can try to swing it out a bit until it clears the head but still keeps the glass in place. I noticed that if you swing the clip out completely the glass plate raises up slightly and screws up your bed leveling that way instead.

No, this is not a concern. Is that it is technically impossible to adjust ... So printing!

 

To libere the head, I manually lower the glass on the setting. The setting is as impossible!

 

Ultimately, if there existed a way to move the head a little, a one hand so to clear and settle the bed, it would pose no more problems.

I've just received the replacement of my U2 printer. Thanks Ultimaker!!

I've the same "problem". Geeks it is not a real issue. As I can see in the picture you posted, the left fan is too close to the printer head block.

Switch off the printer.

Gently move the plate down.

Gently move the head block in the middle in front of you.

With one hand firmly block the print head. Avoid to touch the rear fan.

With the other hand gently move up the left curved fan holder. You should have at least half centimeter of "air" between the holder and the head (at least on my printer). On page 19 of the user manual you can have an idea of the distance.

Start again the calibration.

If the holder still touch the left or right metal clip, repeat the step and increase a little bit the distance.

Ok!

 

I just followed your procedure.

1 / On to Off button.

2 / Push the head a his hand.

3 / Move down the tray a his hand.

4 / New startup procedure.

As you can see now, it is in THE centimeter.

 

Confusion with millimeter on the documentation!

Maybe I was not clear :)

Um2 Fix

 

One hand must keep the printer head firm (put one of your fingers over the red dot), the other hand must gently pull up the fan holder.

From the user manual you can see the correct "geometry" of the print head :)

Yes !

Yes!

There I managed to settle. But it is clear that the left corner in front, it will shift the head of a few cm. This good level to the bed properly.

 

Now time, the robot prints :)

It is a success.

Only push back (large red arrow). :oops:

 

Seriously?

 

Edit :

 

Ok, I just do it!

 

It was easy repair. However, I thought there had screws. But it is a folding.

 

Sorry for the disturbance.

 

Thank you for this information.

Hello,

 

Here I am with a new problem. :oops:

 

Yesterday I printed a piece at 100% and it took me 30 minutes. :-P

 

Today I want to reprint the same room, at 100% and 5h printing. The machine turns out to be very slow! :eek: :eek: :cry:

 

What's going on? Should we do a reset factoring?

You must have changed the Cura settings. Maybe layer height is thinner? Maybe you changed the print speed? There are about 10 settings that can affect how long it takes to print a part.

Because of this I always take good notes and I always save my settings to a "profile" file so I can look back several days later to see what I did.

Ah yes, that's a good idea to save its profiles. :cool:

 

Well, I have a suspect mesh. I will re try in the evening. I want you to juice. :eek:

 

For the robot, the printer reproduced without speed. It is therefore a concern between Blender and Cura .. :oops:

 

The bug is between the chair and the keyboard! :mrgreen:

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
