How to move print head assembly on U2?

Recommended Posts

The rods that support the print head are secured to two black sliding blocks on each side. Use both hands and push both of them at the same time and the head should move. You should be able to just grab the head and move it as well but grabbing both sliding blocks can be easier and it's a bit nicer to the printer.

Note that you wont be able to move the head if the motors are powered up.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
