Is this normal

Recommended Posts

For the last couple of days when I'm doing a print there is a faint grinding or could be a belt slipping. Not causing any printing issues but I want to take care of my machine.

I've included a video that you can watch. It only happens when moving from right to left and it happens in this video twice.

That is the sound of the Z step, the layer finished and the build plate is dropping down to start the next layer. It might be more noticeable when you are printing at larger layer heights because the screw rotating more.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
