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 :)

You can also download the build manual for the UM2 which is always helpfull:
