  1. Mark2 is an asymmetrical multi-extrusion upgrade for the Ultimaker 2, based on Foehnsturm's magnetic tool changer. It offers some unique features compared to conventional approaches. Keep it smart and simple The Mark2 upgrade doesn't require to modify or even disassemble the well-working single extrusion setup. Instead it adds a detachable second extruder. This leaves you with several benefits. Powerful - print quality on par with eg. the UM3 or BCN3D Sigma Flexible - use whatever you want: Olsson ruby, 3Dsolex block / nozzles, ... Cost-efficient - all you need is a second drive train, some magnets and screws Simple - all tried-and tested standard components Smart - Z-offset managed by firmware, calibration wizards Open & scalable - a non-extrusion tool head, a 3rd extruder ... all possible Mark2 is an Ultimaker community project, we don't offer a complete kit but we can help you out with a package, including all the parts you need, besides the second drive train. See it live Probably the best way to get an impression of the usability and print quality is to watch a few videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLeNzDYMnqAqIeZHWU9iOWnj_2OaemupQG Full Cura 2.5 integration Mark2 comes with a set of Cura definition files and can be added as a pre-configured printer. Tried and tested Mark2 setups have been printing for more than 5.000 hrs now, which equals more than 500.000 tool changes. Beta-testers and co-developers include well-known guys here like Tinkergnome, Ultiarjan and many more. The Mark2 website ultimaker-mark2.com is the place where you find all the information you need for doing this upgrade. ... and The Mark2 Dual Extrusion Project Contest is still running.
  2. Are most people still using the glass bed with different preparations of chemicals? OR I am interested in possibly adhering a build type sticker to the glass bed. Is there any drawbacks I'm missing on that idea?
  3. I own an Ultimaker 2 that works great, but that's not for sale..... A friend wanted to get his son involved and he purchased a new Ultimaker 2 a while back. Well that didn't work, so I'm selling his nearly new machine...very low hours, original box and documentation. Whomever does this is getting a great deal $1,000 plus shipping cost Location Louisville KY 33 lbs 17.5 inches, by `17 inches, by 23.5 inches includes the original first roll of PLA that looks about 10% used I tested the machine and it works fine.
  4. Bonjour, J'ai une UM2 depuis plusieurs années, mais je ne l'ai pas utilisée depuis très longtemps. Je voulais mettre le firmware à jour, mais j'ai un problème, quand je connecte l'UM2 au pc en USB rien ne se passe, par contre quand j'ouvre Cura 4.4.1 l'UM2 reboot "salement" en boucle genre elle va griller. Est-ce que quelqu'un a déjà eu le cas ? L'option de la connexion par USB ne m'est pas hyper utile, mais j'aimerais la mettre à jour (en particulier pour pouvoir l'upgrade prochainement), il me semble qu'il était possible de la mettre en jour par la carte SD avant, non ?
  5. Hi to all The 2016 year had inspired some of us in 3D field, we are always looking to improve our jobs and our equipement. For a long time I wanted to print with ultra-flexible filament without meeting all the difficulties due to the bowden tube on the one hand and the disadvantages of weight and power of the direct drive with the stepper motor on the head of printing on the other hand The flexible shaft is an interesting solution but also has some disadvantages and requires a significant addition of adjustments in a specific software to remove them. I tried to find a compromise between these 3 systems, here are the results Extrusion in direct with the usual stepper motor and using the components of the original extruder or those of the upgrade. The system is quite simple by replacing the Bowden tube by a straight and rigid square shaft between the stepper motor and the feeder, the latter 2 being installed on pivot points to be able to follow freely the X/Y displacements. There is little added weight, +/- 10 grs more on the print head, it's why it is called by Neotko " Zero Gravity Direct Drive ", thanks to him for that and also for giving some good ideas There is absolutely no play in operation, extrusion and retraction have become very accurate by having the full torque power. Printing with very flexible filament has become almost as easy and fast as with the PLA My average retraction setting distance down to 1.5mm (1 to 2mm maxi) Now my average print speed is 60mm / s The other settings remain in accordance with the usual settings depending on the filament used. I improved the ringing by lowering the acceleration values ??and the X / Y jerk, (2500/15 UM2 extended) Depth of 150 hours of test performed with different filament types without encountering problems, the videos shows tests of a hobby car tire wich is printed with the 2.85mm Recreus Fila Flex A82 Shore at 50mm/s print speed and 2mm/30mm/s retractation settings. the Bondtech feeder parts are used here for the 2 print heads, a system with the UM stock knurled wheel is in preparation; some other works future UM stock feeder parts uses in a customized" I Roberti" feeder system
  6. Gudo agreed on sharing this early beta designs. As soon I get more time I'll upload the um2hotend Beta (NO INSTRUCTIONS FOR NOW) if someone is brave enough to use the ZGE with Mark 2. It uses a 4dia 3mm depth magnets and it uses 31 for a full 2 head setup. So, isn't assembly friendly but the design really rocks. So, for now just photos. Oh also UM3 Core version for um2 zgemark2, Gudo is testing it just now the first designs. It will only need 2 fans for the print cooling but each head will have his 5v fan. The fans are very easy to assemble or remove and every part is modular. The clip system uses a 'spring-magnet' system, that so far looks amazing but need's testing. Also the print precision will be really crucial on the clip system. Also Gudo moved the bed, by changing the screw points, this gives a 1cm area for the hotends to rest, so they don't need to rampup/rampdown while park/unpark. Also the magnet clip system allows for smooth removal to avoid any misstep lost or shift on movement forces. I'll share more when I know more I have printed a full version but my reseller doesn't have um2 3 aluminium parts in stock so I'm waiting for other source arrival to start assembling it. @Gudo will post more about this soon. Also since the files are on my dropbox, if anyone wants to beta test, PM me with your email so I give you read access. Edit. At the moment I can’t test this, I have all printed, but my agenda is getting fill of stuff to test and work.
  7. Hi - I have just had two prints fail with the error code ER03. But I am unable to find a list of error codes & meanings on the web site. It there a list somewhere? If not what does this code mean? I have a Unimaker 2, printing PLA
  8. Hello, I am little new here, but i have a problem i cannot solve. So i will try here to find a sollution. A little background: Using UM2 with Igus material iglidur® I150-PF. Making slide bushings for verious applications. https://www.igus.nl/product/12404 Settings : 0.4mm nozzle, 0.15mm layer height , 60mm/s print speed. Extruder 245°C, Build plate 65°C When printing there are 45° lines extra on the inner and sometimes on the outer shell. It seems to be extra material and i tried a lot of different settings to remove it. Nothing seems to help. The weird thing is that a year ago i had no problems at all. So is there something changed in the default settings in Cura that can affect / produce this? See attached image for details of my problem. The line seems to be random, but that is so far i can see. Its is the Z-hop? Retraction? Please help, would be i big help if somebody can help me solved this challenge. Slide busch_V6.3mf
  9. I have tried cleaning the z-screw and regreasing. Every once in a while the layer issue seems to not happen. But I have a whole table of test prints that show the line through them. I use Cura for my slicing. Is there any chance this could be a software issue? Or do I need to order a new z-screw and motor to fix?

  11. Hello! My Ultimaker 2 makes a creaking noise when the head is moved on the Y axis. I think the sound comes from the ball bearing at the far side of the left panel. This doesn't have an impact on print quality, but it doesn't sound healthy. What specifications should I keep in mind when ordering a replacement ball bearing? It seems to have a ridge on one side to prevent it from being pushed through the side panel. I assume I can slide the axis out to the right side when I loosen the screws on the pulleys. Thanks! Elias
  12. I was having trouble with inserting filament, so I took the black box at the back of the printer apart, and manually inserted the material, but in the process I had to unscrew the motor that drives the turning thing that inserts the material. However, I underestimated how large and heavy the motor would be, so when I unscrewed it, it fell pretty hard. When I went to observe the damage, I found these two switches, but couldn't find where I should re-attach them. I think they have to do with the lifting of the plate, but I'm quite new to this and don't have a great idea on how to find where they should go without recklessly dismantling more stuff :). Any help would be so appreciated! Thanks! Liza
  13. Im selling my Ultimaker 2 3D printer and filaments and accessories. Its in EXCELLENT shape. I just dont use it enough and am downsizing my life... (wife's idea) ***$1,380 OBO!!!!*** We are currently in Dover Florida (Near Tampa). Would love to show you the printer and do a test print when you come to see it. I have a few different filaments that come with the printer. PLA, ABS, Flex, Translucent... typically $45+ ea. This allows you to get your toe wet in the 3D printing world without having to spend a ton of money. Its fast, reliable, and fun. i have made toys for my niece and nephew, i have made items for around the house that we couldnt have bought. PLUS, i will give you lessons on how to successfully print, maintain and troubleshoot the printer. I also have some videos of the printer in action. Thanks and happy printing!
  14. So I recently got a hold of a used control board out of a UM2 printer. I’m working on a custom printer design, and I’d really like to use the board to control it; at least for now, so that I don’t have to dish out a bunch of cash for a new printer controller (eventually I’ll be using a Duet Maestro). The printer I’m building will be a CoreXY, not the typical Ultimaker geometry. Also, there will be no heated bed, and for now I plan to just drive the printer straight from a computer as I don’t have the SD reader or LCD. my question is: how can I go about changing the existing UM2 firmware to work for my project? Can I upload the standard Marlin build with the correct configuration.h for my setup, or is the pinout setup differently for the UM2 version of Marlin? Thank you I’m advanced!
  15. I just received these parts from www.goprint3d.co.uk. They are sold as genuine Ultimaker replacement glass bed (part 1154) and genuine Ultimaker bowden (part 1266). On their site the pics are of the real deal(as are the part numbers), but what i got seems like cheap and nasty 3rd party parts. The glass bed is not rounded, light weight and doesn't feel like borosilicate glass and the bowden just looks a bit off. Now I've got many replacement glass beds for my Ultimakers over the years and its always been the same high quality glass bed we all know and love. They usually come shrink wrapped and well protected. As you can see in the pics this is how the glass bed arrived to me this time(they did put bubble wrap on it and sent in a plastic bag). Any thoughts? Anyone from Ultimaker confirm these are cheap parts and not the real deal? Thank you
  16. Not looking for an "extended" version just the standard 2 or 2+ working or not. If not working or needs work please PM me and explain whats wrong with the printer and the price your asking. Looking for a reasonable price, willing to buy right away. Will only pay thru paypal. EDIT: If this thread is still up, i am still looking so please PM me regardless.
  17. My Ultimaker 2 has worked perfect ly for years with exception to the led which had blown the T1 or T2 transistor. so i replaced them both and also T3 as it was the same the light now work perfectly. however every time i tried to print or move the bed of print head i would get a ER06 or ER05 or ER07 i have tested the stop switch and my connection sereral time and all it fine. after reading a few posts it suggested reinstalling the firmware , unfortunately it now thinks its the first time i've used the machine and want to calibrate the bed but keep coming up with the errors messages i have tried to connect it the cura via a usb cable but it dose not detect the printer while it stuck in the calibration mode Help i understand you cannot install the firm ware via SD card. Jason
  18. As a personal project, I would like to connect to my Ultimaker 2 through the USB-B port, get access to the variable that estimates remaining time as calculated by the Ultimaker 2 (the same variable that displays on the LCD screen), and send this data to either another device or another program. Evidently, I have much to learn about software, so I do not expect a full solution. I would really appreciate any kind of advice on how to begin thinking about this problem, even if it's what I can start Googling to learn more - I see that all the Cura/Ultimaker code is up on Github, but I don't really know where to start. Profuse thank-you's to whoever chooses to reply to this.
  19. My ultimaker 2 prints fine up to last few layers PLA. Then suddenly it starts to print in random directions and the bed forces the printed part into the printhead and destroys the printed part. This happens with all the things i have printed recently. Please help ASAP Thank you

    upgrade UM2

    Bonjour à tous, Je me pose une question existentielle: J'ai une imprimante UM2 depuis 4 ans, et je me demande si je m'offrirais le "upgrage extrusion kit"... Pour info, je viens d'achter 2 imprimantes UM3 à mon boulot. Je n'ai donc pas l'intention d'acheter une UM3 pour la maison à court terme, car, je l'avoue, si je dois imprimer quelque chose avec une UM3, je le ferai probablement avec une du boulot. Qu'en pensez-vous? Cela vaut la peine?
  21. Hi all, I have a weird issue on my ultimaker 2. When I print a circle consisting of 2 walls those walls are slightly off as in the attached pictures. The first picture shows walls which are split, this occurred pretty much only in this area. The rest of the circle was fine. On another Ultimaker I have this is even worse. Thanks
  22. Hello, je ne sais pas si c'est permis ici ou si il y a une rubrique spéciale pour l'occasion ? Acquéreur d'une UM3, je vends ma UM2 très content de mes expériences d'impression avec cette marque fiable. Très bon état, peu servie comparé à d'autres, ses infos de Printing : 690 Material : 950 m Bobines en sus offertes (PLA divers marques) + bombe d'accroche 3DLac. NOUVEAU PRIX : 850 € à enlever Paris 11e (ou Vincennes). Envoi colissimo possible France métropolitaine +30€ Idéal pour un upgrade en UM 2+ via le kit A votre disposition.
  23. Hey guy's, long time no post 😄 I have recently noticed a creaky sound from my UM 2 when the printer head moves left to right. I have lubricated all of the axis rods so I think it's coming from the motor. I've attached a video here but the sound isn't very clear. Can anyone help me with how I can fix this?
  24. I made a small change to to the um2 firmware for my ultimaker 2. Now someone on the other side of the world wants the same change but she has an ultimaker 2+ extended. I can not find any flags in the header files to make a build for the extended.
