Limit blocks sagging

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and girls.

Just finished building my Ultimaker Original Plus and I was running the calibration.

The print head moved all the way to the left and made a terrible juddering noise. Naturally I investigated and I saw that the limit block LEFT sags forward from the weight of the emitter and it's little wooden tag on the back misses the limit switch.

I've got the switch all the way over as far as it will go but it only seems to hit the switch when the block is level, not when it's sagging.

Any bright ideas?

    • 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.
