Posted · no extrusion missing part

So today i finished my ultimaker. But when making i lost the extruder lever. Its very stupid but i cant find it anywhere. And now there is no filament coming out of the hot end.

Is there a way i can get that part or place something there instead?

    What I would do is to keep the feeder closed with some string or a very thick rubber band or whatever you can come up with to keep it closed. Then I'd download the STEP file for the lever and print one out. You can find the design for the lever here:

    The feeder is the whole "package" that hangs off the back of the printer with the little stepper motor and big gear on it. The lever you're missing is used to keep the black thing with a spring closed.

    The black part is the lever.. what you suggested you have misplaced..

    Perhaps you could post a picture of what you have now as a feeder?

    Looks like the part came loose during printing? If so, re-level your bed so that the first layer is pressed harder into the tape.

    Also, it looks like the tape isn't stuck down very good in a few places. Really rub it into the platform so it sticks nicely.

    What Robert said.

    Make sure the first layer is pressed in the tape.

    The first layer should not 'lie' on the tape, but it should be visible.

    Here are some pictures as a reference: http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Calibrate

    In the furture please post pictures here, not imgur (which probably won't host your pic for a year).

    Click "gallery" at the top left of this page, then click blue "upload" button. Then make a post and click "my media" next to smile icon.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
