Just spotted this on an UM2. Has anyone got an stl file of this. Assume this is now being shipped with the latest versions as didn't have one of these with mine.

 

Seems like a good idea to support the feed

    With some spools, I had a strong squeaking sound with the standard UM2 spool holder.

    I plan to print the low friction spool holder, but for now I found a quick fix which seems to work very well, so I'd like to share it.

    I covered a piece of paper with PTFE tape (3M PTFE-Film-Tape-5490) and put it between the spool and the standard spool holder.

    I then did the same for the filament guide shown in the first pic of this post.

    the squeaking sound is gone, and the friction is clearly strongly decreased.

      • 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.
