rusty screws

I haven't looked at it closely but I noticed the same thing myself. However, I think it might actually be something like copper paste for lubrication rather than rust.

If the knurled nut is zinc-plated and the screw is made out of stainless steel then the knurled nut will soon show rust when the two are kept in an environment with high humidity. It's a question of the standard electrode potential.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
