Posted · Building the Ultimaker 2

Recently I have felt strongly that I need a 3D printer for most of my electronics projects but am only a student. I want to build the ultimaker 2 but the kit is not within my budget so I am trying to source the parts for my self and build based on the released files. However I am want to use a core XY movement because I am only limited to the arduino mega + ramps 1.4 electronics. I will also modify the files for the laser cutting of the aluminum composite.

Is there something am missing guy? any suggestions?

Hi,

I haven't thought about building a custom UM2 but regarding the kit - maybe there is some academic discount for your school/university? Also as far as I know there is no Ultimaker 2 kit but rather a Ultimaker Original+ kit.
