Just noticed this sound today when printing. Prints are fine and it seems the sound isn't affecting anything. But it's quite annoying tongue sticking out smiley


Anyone got some ideas?

The large extruder gear isn't rubbing against anything? The hobbed bolt and nuts are tight, so it's not washers or bearings vibrating?

What are your speed settings? My i3v motors have a lower pitch sound than yours.

I believe it was my gears, had a littlebit of PTFE grease onto them. It's been gone since smiling smiley
