Replace drive gear screw?

Recommended Posts

You mean on your feeder? The screw just left of this arrow head?

I don't know the answer but everything Ultimaker seems to be metric so probably 3mm or maybe 2.5 or 2mm. Probably 3mm.

It is indeed an M3 x 3mm, I ordered some from Ali in China some time ago for spares, make sure you order ones with a flat end not a point. The first ones I ordered had a tapered point and they do not work that well so I had to file the end to get better grip on the rod from the stepper motor.

The smallest of the three hex keys supplied with the UM2 fits, 1.5mm I think

    • "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.
