Ultimaker S5 - Replacing the build plate clamps

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker S5 - Replacing the build plate clamps

Hello,

 

I have a broken build plate clamp on the S5 printer which needs to be replaced. I have done this before for the ultimaker 3 using the manual from ultimaker (Manual) but there is no guide for the S5 on the ultimaker website. The builtplate is a bit different, making it harder to measure the height between the base plate and the heating bed on the S5.

So I was wondering if I still could follow the U3 procedure on the S5 or should I change some steps.

 

Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Hi that is the gap on my S5, and I have checked my other also and they both almost 5 mm gap at that point.
