Ultimaker 2: z-axis lubricant

Recommended Posts

Hi

I managed to lose the little grease packet that came with my Ultimaker2. After a year of use, I want to grease the z-axis.

Any thoughts on a suitable substitute for the official "Magnalube-G"? Is lithium grease okay?

BTW Just talking z-axis here. I understand that x and y axes need "sewing machine" oil.

Thx for any help

Neil

I see you are in Canada, and amazon.ca doesn't seem to have it. I'm pretty sure Amazon US will ship to Toronto, though. If not, PM me, i can order one for you and send it over, but the postage will probably be way more than the cost of the lube!

    • "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.
