Ultimaker Original Heated Bed upgrade manual question

Recommended Posts

A couple comments/constructive criticism about the guide I downloaded, version 1.3

(I'm reading it prior to purchasing the upgrade)

1) I don't know if this is a Europe vs American layout style sort of thing but the directions jump around.

I would expect the directions and pictures to go Left to Right. Not.. Up, Down, Far right up, Far right down, as they seem to be. I find it awkward to follow along. (As an example, I am trying to read along as I would a comic book)

2) There is no mention on how to attach the Z-screw to the new stepper motor. Perhaps easy to sort out once the pieces are in front of you. But going through the steps, it was just magically assembled already :)

3) The first steps of the directions state to remove the top caps (3B) and then shows a photo of the caps, 3A and 3B. The directions should include removing the lower caps (3A) :)

Again, not being picky, just trying to be helpful!

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
