Life expectancy of all consumables

Nice little thread on life expectancy of the laser unit here:

What about other consumables? Drive belts? Stepper motors?

What is their expected lifespan? Are they standard or custom parts? Will they be able to be replaced by the consumer?



I also would like to know this!

I’m kinda hoping there won’t be any belts in that thing…
My Ultimaker is not making round holes / cylinders anymore and to calibrate is a pain. Many lasers use belts so maybe this is not an issue. But I’d also like to know.

There are both belts and steppers. They’re standard but not designed for user replacement. (That said, we’re not using any proprietary tools, so I don’t believe there’s anything stopping you).
