Y-Axis Loose Need Help :)

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!

Ill get straight to the point, My Y-Axis shaft seems to be loose Ill post the pic at bottom. When the motor makes quick movement the shaft which is visible on the outside of the Ultimaker 2 moves back and forward slightly jarring my prints and causing issues I'm wondering the correct way to tighten them. I've have my UM2 for about 4 months so its relatively new and I didn't have this issue until recently! I would really appreciate the help!

thanks guys!

Ron :)

    • "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.
