Ultimaker Original Extended+ (custom build at Stockholm Makerspace)

Recommended Posts

I just want to show off our new build at Stockholm Makerspace (www.makerspace.se), we got a donation of a UMO+ kit and of course we wanted to mod it ;)

The first thing we did was cutting out new side panels in 6mm birch plywood, wich we made 100mm higher than the original, without the openings on the sides and with holes for the UM2 spool holder instead of the UMO spool holder.

Then we got 100mm longer 12mm linear shafts and a longer screw like the one on the UM2 Extended.

The head got changed to a UM2 head with Olsson block that i had lying around.

The only change needed to the physical Ultimaker 2 printhead to use it on the Original is to change out the top plastic piece and rotate the middle and bottom plastic pieces 90 degrees since the axes on the UMO are reversed compared to the UM2.

And yes, with the new drive train upgrade kits hopefully released soon, there will probably be some spare UM2 heads around to use on UMO's in need of upgrades ;)

You can find the replacement top piece we use here: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/um2-printhead-top-for-umo

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
