UM2 rod movement

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 rod movement

I've just noticed that one of the rod ends on the back of the printer is moving in and out about 2mm during printing.

Has something come loose / needs tightening ?

Hi, could you be a little bit clearer on which machine you have, and what rod specifically is moving?

Pictures always help :)

Push the rod back into place. Loosen the set screw on the pulley on the side that was poking out, hold the rod in place and push the pulley towards the wall of the printer as far as it will go and then re-tighten the set screw tightly and you're done.

Thanks, I'll do that.

 

The one next to it (on the back of the printer) is now moving slightly in and out too. Although, I can't see the same procedure having any effect on it.

AAMOI discovered that the moving rods are not the cause of my bad print. Cura is slicing my model wrong. If I go to the layer view it shows a block of layers that shouldn't be there.
