In the shop there is a Extruder Drive Upgrade for sale,

are there drawings I can download to build one myself, I really like to build the parts myself, and I don't want to spend €32,- :D

DXF or DWG will do nicely :)

or point me in the right direction.

    well its basically just a polished up copy of the Bertho mod which is on Thingiverse.

    But by the time you get hold of the bearing for it, which is an odd size and will have to be ordered specially, and

    buy a load of springs to experiment with and so on, you will not be saving any money at all. So really if you like building things yourself, go on. But I dont think it will be cheaper, and time is money. So ultimately its actually

    far cheaper just to order it...and quicker.

    I've got a whole load of springs and bearings I can use (a bit of a hoarder :) )

    and I can adjust the drawings to compensate for different bearings, and materials is also no problem.

    Yes, it is more easy to order, but where is the fun in that :)

    Far cheaper for one person, but most of us pay a lot of money in shipping. For me to order this mod it would be 22 euro + 59.50 euro shipping = 81.50 euro. I'm pretty certain the bearing + springs cost less than that (unless you are buying them gold plated. :D ).

    There was some mention of putting the extruder upgrade source files up somewhere but I haven't seen it.

    If you want to DIY one and don't want to wait for Ultimaker to release the design, you could use Bertho's extruder as a starting point. There are some differences but if you're going to adjust the Ultimaker version to use different bearings/springs then I'd expect you can also adjust Bertho's design.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
