Awful Noise [Form3]

I have a Form 3, owned since launch, that has given me no problems with light usage. Recently, I installed a new tank and Rigid 10K resin for some holiday ornaments and it makes this terrible sound while printing. Does anyone recognize this noise and can help me diagnose?

Mine was doing the same. I cleaned and lubricated the x-axis lead screw and all screeching went away. There’s reference to routine maintenance in the following:


Hi @erikzweigle,

Thanks for reaching out! I agree that lubricating the X-axis should help here. You can either purchase the F3 X Axis Cleaning Kit or you can use your own white lithium grease to re-lubricate the screw.

Hi @Jesse_K, that looks like something you printed. Are the models for that kit available?

Hi @SteamFactory, here is the .form file for the thread cleaning part. The applicator part can easily be substituted by any other implement to distribute white lithium grease along the screw.

Thanks Jesse. This thing works great!
