using Ultimaker 2 x-y carriages on ultimaker original?

I tried. X/Y shafts 6mm of the head are shorter on umo+. You would need new shafts for that (github um2 has the info).

Imo, the twisterblocks are just as good or better, and they are great a with a gt2 upgrade :)

Other problem of using that on umo, it's that you need a gt2 (belt entry it's 5mm on um2) and you need the correct springs (that I got and they are uber weak imo).

So to use them you need gt2 5mm same as um2, inner spring tensioner, new x/y head shafts.

Also a side note. If you want to use them to gain print area, forget about it. Been there done that.

To gain print area on umo you would need a new head carriage, like the um2 and that sideblocks with all the extra stuff. It can be done ofc. But it has its costs.

Yea i think you are right maybe not much to gain over all considering the work. I think ill just stick to the GT2 upgrade as you suggested.

Thanks!
