Hello,

I have received my Ultimaker 2 yesterday. I have also done some printed, without noticeable problems.

After having a closer look to the parts, I have seen, that one of the limit switches is curved.

Is this normal or should the switch be straight like the other one? I have also noticed, that the print head (fan) is coming really close to the left housing plate while homing, maybe also touching it sometimes.

 

Should I bend the limit switch straight or is this on purpose?

    I think it was bent like that on purpose so the head wouldn't hit the left side. Every machine is slightly different though.

    If it *is* touching left side you can either bend switch a little bit more or maybe bend the fan shroud in a bit if not symmetrical.
