The lead screw is connected to the Z motor and controls the movements of the Z stage. To ensure smooth movement of the Z stage, it is recommended to periodically apply grease to the lead screw.
Over time, grease may need to be reapplied to maintain consistent and accurate movement of the Z stage. A tube of grease is included in the accessory box of your Ultimaker S5.
- Make sure that the build plate is positioned at the bottom of the Ultimaker S5
- Apply a small amount of grease to the lead screw of the Z motor
- In the Ultimaker menu, go to Configuration > Build plate
- Select Raise and then Lower to move the build plate up and down to evenly distribute the grease
Note: Only use the grease on the lead screw of the Z motor.
