Replacing the blue tape on the Ultimaker 2 Go

After a lot of printing, the blue tape that is on the glass plate may wear or damage a little bit. This can cause an uneven print surface or bad adhesion to the print and it is therefore recommended to replace it once in a while. When doing this, always make sure that the Ultimaker 2 Go is turned off.

Take out the glass plate

Before taking out the glass plate, first manually move the build plate to the bottom of the Ultimaker 2 Go. This way damage on the print head or Z trapezoidal leadscrew is prevented.

Open up the build plate clamps at the front side by using a screwdriver and slide the glass plate to the front of the build plate until you can take it out of the Ultimaker 2 Go.

Replacing the tape

Remove the damaged tape and place new strokes of blue tape on the glass plate. Place them next to each other and make sure they are not placed over each other. It is also advised to not put tape on the place where the build plate clamps cover the glass plate.

Install the glass plate

The glass plate can simply be place back by sliding it onto the build plate until it snaps into the build plate clamps at the back of the build plate. Next, close the build plate clamps at the front side by hand in order to secure it.

Tip: In order to be sure about a successful next print we recommend to re-level the build plate after having repositioned the glass plate.
