Help noise from UM3Ext

Posted · Help noise from UM3Ext

Hi all.

I can't figure out how to fix this.
I keep hearing an annoying noise that seems to come from the seat belts or seatbelt pads, but I cannot identify it.
I've lubricated the axles and tightened the belts but it doesn't work out.
Do you have any ideas?

    I find it hard to distinguish from the clip but a few things that come to mind that can be generating some noice/sounds; did you check if none of the belts rub onto any of the pulleys? Are the rods aligned? And is the noice mostly in either X or Y? Sometimes when one of the bearings inside the head needs to be replaced you can also a bit of a sandy/grindy sound. Hope this 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
