UMO+ Mods


Recommended Posts

Hi-

I just built a UMO+, and I have been browsing throught the forums looking at mods for the printer. For those of you who have the model—which mods do you find most useful and how hard are they to put together with basic electrical engineering knowledge?

Thanks-

    On my Original (not a +) I found the dual fans a great mod and there are a lot of clips available on YouMagine that can assist in closing the chamber.

    Can't find the second fan I downloaded back then. Does anyone have any recommended (dual) fanshrouds?

    On my Original (not a +) I found the dual fans a great mod and there are a lot of clips available on YouMagine that can assist in closing the chamber.

    I have a pair of foehnsturm's dual fan shrouds that are really concentrated, up to the point the normal UM fan can't push air through it at all. He probably had better fans. I can't find the topic on the forum. The search still gives me results with only 1 of the words I'm looking for first.

    What I am wondering about is what a good fan is, as the UM standard fan seems to be insufficient, although I don't have a second one, that might improve things a lot as you mention. I was running this shroud in single setup: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:77107 Now I'm running a folded version of the UMO+ shroud, for safety with kids around ;)

    As for UMO upgrades:

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
