Limit switch curved

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
