Missing End Stop

Recommended Posts

Every time the head on my Ultimaker 2 returns to the home position in the back corner, it grinds as the belts stutter to try and push it farther. This has occurred ever since I received my Ultimaker 2. From reading threads of others with this problem, I thought it may be that the end stops that trigger the head to stop may be malfunctioning. After examining my Ultimaker 2, I found that the metal switch on the end stop in the x direction is not even there. I have included a picture to show this.

Missing End Stop

Can I send away for this part from Ultimaker since it was never included in the printer I received? How would I do this? Is it easy to install it myself?

Thanks

    • "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.
