If someone who needs the original "ultimaker 2" or "ultimaker 2 extended" frame in a 6mm aleminum dibond, please send me  materials and i will manufacture and send you back free.

I am unable to find 6mm dibond in cyprus.therefore, if you just send a additional frame material  for me i will do yours free of charge :)5a33110ca8155_ultimakerautocad2.thumb.jpg.2bdc3ae36dd1858b2c12b6cbdf46f383.jpg

If someone's original frame also broken...send me front panel or any frame part and i will do it...This is the Ultimaker friendship :D( note: after I have 2 frame i will not ask additional dibond and continue to make it free :)

Process is

1) download github's "ultimaker 2" STL files

2) opened in 3ds max and by selecting edges of sides, i send it to autocad as 2d (dxf files)

3) I put ultimaker 2 extended picture into autocad. I aligned with the "ultimaker 2" drawings and find the measurements (approximately) ( UM² extended is 10 cm longer than UM²)

4 I import dxf files to CNC router program and I adjust the blade thickness. CNC process is crucial. You have to know CNC router well ( for example when Plexiglass is cutting, direction of the mill is crucial etc...

    MDF is not rigid material. You can use but i suggest you to use plywood. plexiglass or perpex is durable than mdf...

    this is the place a hobbyist ultimaker² builder suggested me to buy 6mm dibond but it cost a lot for clone at least 100 euros for a frame...plywood is cheap...

    I had a bad day :(

    I almost finish my printer, but the hotbed temperature sensor didn't work... and I can't do anything until I change the termisor, if anyone know where I can get a thermistor for the ultimaker 2 hotbed, let me know

    The temp sensor of the um2 bed is a pt100. Just like in the hot end (without the housing). Just Google. You can buy them in many places...

    You'll need a cartridge sensor that fits into the hotend. Not any PT100 sensor will do. While they all measure temperature the same way, you still need one in the correct shape and size.

    https://shop.ultimaker.com/product/62/PT100-B-sensor

    The original one is very expensive. You might find a compatible part (for around 25$ - estimate) and also the correct connectors on Mouser, but you'll need to put the wiring together yourself.

    E3D-online.com & 3Dsolex.com both sell the PT100 complete with connector.

    And if you need other stuff, at Ultimaker.com it's also part of the hot-end pack these days
