wrong default gantry height UM2 ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · wrong default gantry height UM2 ?

Just had a part knocked over, loud noise scared the shit out of me!

had a look, gantry height in Cura is 55mm.

I think this is the deafult as I did not change it, and its the same on my laptop.

It is wrong.

My part was 53mm, my actual gantry is 50mm.

Made so much noise I wonder if my xy axes are still straight :mad:

53mm gantry 55 Mm   knockover

This has been corrected to 48mm a while back. However, because Cura copies over old configuration you could still have the old values.

Think it's wise in this case to figure out a way to change it, or at least warn users about it, maybe on the splash screen during install ?

If I run multiple versions whats the easiest way to change to 48mm in all ?

Well, the first 500 UM2s shipped did have 55mm gantry height (and 10mm less printing height). So forcing it to change would also be wrong.

Easiest would be to go trough all the configurations, sorry.

for me it's fine, but as the wrong setup can do real damage to your machine proactive informing users would be a good idea IMHO, or has this been done and did I overlook something ?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
