material feed assembly problems.

Recommended Posts

In the assembly instructions there are things like: "manual extrusion should work without too much force".

As this is my first ultimaker, I don't know what "too much force" is. But I think that works.

How fast should the machine be able to turn the extrusion wheel? It moves really really slowly and I can't get it to extrude anything realiistic.

Also after extruding, there is a lot of drooping.

I've managed to print the test-cube, with manual pressure on the PLA material. Of course the quality is very bad as I didn't know when the machine didn't want any extrusion...

So, there seems something wrong with my material feed assembly. What could be wrong? How am I supposed to test it? Can I manually test it with the control panel? (Should I be able to see the PLA material move? It now moves so slowly that you can hardly see the wheel move, you can put your finger on it and it seems to do something....)

Is it normal that it takes 5 seconds after I press "stop" in the control panel to come to a halt?

P.S. Oh...

the second picture shows TWO delrin parts. I THINK the current version comes as one piece, correct?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
