  1. Hi I would like to add another Y stepper motor to my custom build 3-D printer I am using same electronics ( white ) as the ultimaker 2 plus Can anyone help me ? Is it possible to use the available E2 stepper driver ?? Or do I need to connect the 2Y motors in series ? Thanks
  2. Hi I would like to attach another stepper motor for Y AXIS , is it possible to use the available E2 driver On the board ? And what is required to change in the firmware ? If this cannot be done , then should I connect the 2 stepper motors in Series and connect them to the single Y DRIVER ? If anyone can help me , I would appreciate it very much Thanks guys
  3. Hi, i need some help . I built my second 3d printer using ultimaker controller board. My first printer used rods for x and y. This printer works on v rails ( sliders that move with wheels on the v rail extrusions ) instead of rods. Everything is working fine, except i noticed that i tried to print a test part, it is a square with rounded corners which consists of 4 identicalcircles, and the circles do not print correctly. Please see the image attached. I have searched on the web for possible solutions. i have tensioned the belts, i have calibrated the steps for the motors. i am usi
  4. Hi, I have built my second 3d printer based on the Ultimaker 2. I have edited the Marlin firmware for the Ultimaker2 to correspond to my printer ( x,y,z travel limits, directions of stepper motors, and homing to limit switches,etc. I have tested with pronterface and everything works well mechanically. I did all the connections to the ultimaker 2 controller board, when i swtched power on and tried to do a test print, it reset on it's own,and tried again , but same thing happened it reset again. I thought that maybe it was the power supply which is the same one that ultimaker 2 uses s
  5. Hi I have been doing some tests with my custom 3D printer which is similar to the ULTIMAKER 2 extended version. I am using the same controller board and nozzle components plus fans for the hot end. I am using a gear reducer estruder. please see attached pictures. the FIRST problem i am having is that every time i print , the fans dont't seem to want to start unless i nudge them a little, then they work. But that should not be the case does any one have any helpful solutions. i am using the marlin firmware for ultimaker 2 with some changes accordng to my printer travel limits and endsto
  6. I need some help, i am not electronic savvy. The question is i have 2 identical fans ( SUNON, 12 VOLTS ) ( 50mm x 50 mm ) Each fan has these specifications Power current: 105 mA Power consumpion: 1.26 watts I want the 2 fans to cool the controller board. I have built a PLA housing for the 2 fans to sit on top of board. I am also using the same power supply GS220A24-R7B -- DC VOLTAGE 24V same used on the ULTIMAKER 2. I have attached images below. The specs for the power supply is highlighted in green. I have already connected the 2 fans in parallel, but when i plug the connector onto
  7. I tried connecting it to the other one that you showed in the image, but the fans still do not turn, can you please help me. i don't know why, it should work. is there something i have to add in the circuit of the fans ?? and the fans have 1.26 watts output not 1.26 amps.
  8. Hi I want to cool my ultimaker 2 controller board. So i designed a housing to hold 2 fans 50mm x 50mm. These are SUNON fans 12v 1.26 amps each. I have connected both fans together, positive wire from one fan together with the negative wire from the other. the other 2 wires plus and minus are with connector. When i plug the connector to the board marked ( FAN 19-24 V ) and power it up, the fans dont spin. I see that the fans are trying to spin, but ever so slowly, barely nothing but trying. Am i doing something wrong ?? I am not that electronic tech savvy. Can someone please help me.
  9. Hi I have made a 3D print to house 2 fans 50x50 mm to cool the ultimaker 2 controller board I have already connected them And I plug the 2 pin connector On the 19-24v female connector On the board , how do I power them up using pronterface ?? They don't start at all , am I connecting to the proper connector ?? Is there some other way Please help , I would appreciate any suggestions Thanks
  10. Hi I need some help. I have an Ultimaker 2 controller board, and i want to test if the stepper motors work by using pronterface. I built my own 3D printer similar to Ultimaker. I tried plugging the Y motor only on the board, nothing else is plugged in. Just want to test it in pronterface if motors work. But when i use pronterface, i keep on getting MAX Temp Error, click Y axis , nothing moves. Is there some modifications that need to done to trick the board into thinking that there are no temp sensors or heatbed ?? I would appreciate if someone can help me out. Thanks
  11. I have attached TOP VIEW of my 3D printer project with some key dimensions. they are not same as ULTIMAKER 2 Extended
  12. As promised here is the ongoing project. I am using Aluminum extrusion profiles series, aluminum L brackets, all Stainless steel fasteners, many components were custom designed and i outsouced the maching all in Aluminum with anodized finishes. Most of the components I ordered are from MISUMI and Mc MasterCarr. For the Z axis i am going with a linear V rail system ( OpenBuilds Type but my gantry plate is custom made), i have not assembled the glass and alimuinum plate holder yet, waiting for copper grease tube .It is far from finished, but I am eager to see the final results. There will b
  13. Thanks for the info But i am new to all of this, I designed the entire project of my 3D Printer in Solidworks. It took me about a month to complete, with whatever free time i had available. I will try and post a pic as to how my printer currently looks. There are delays in completing it , because the shipping of some components takes forever. I will be using the Ultimaker controller board latest version for the hardware. But somewhat confused as to how will i proceed when i connect all the cables to the board. Can someone guide me step by step ??, i would appreciate that. My printer wi
  14. how about the location of the limit switches ?? is that controlled in the firmware ??
  15. OK, that sounds great, i will definitely try it out when i finally receive my board because if i can setup my 3d printer just by using cura that would be more simple. It's just because i spent a lot of time searching and came across Marlin, Arduino and pronterface and was geting confused as to what i should use. For example , can i test the board to check that the step motors run and turn accordingly ( just alone without the shaft connected to linear rods ) once i power up the board, and only those motors are connected and the others are not ( i.e fans, heatbed, heater cartridge, sensor ) o
  16. I really need some help and advice, so any comments would be greatly appreciated. I am currently building my 3D Printer, it will be somewhat similar to ultimaker 2 extended but not exactly. I would like to know when i finally assemble the frame structure, and then hook up all the wires to the controller, what is the next step. I don't know what to do. How will i setup the software according to my 3d printer configurations limits, x , y, z travel min max extruder, heatbed, fans,etc. Usually limit switches are installed where on the x,y, and z axis, is this the 0,0,0 origin ? And home p
