Got this off thingiverse.

Yesterday I received the plexi glass cut to size according to the specs and put it together.

The difference it has made to my ABS prints is fantastic. Highly recommended

Plexi glass cost me just shy of £40,- winner

Looks awesome becky! Are you worried at all about over heating your steppers at all? Im going to be building an enclosure for my UMO+ here in a couple days and my only concern right now it letting the enclosure get too hot since the bed will be at a constant 100c for hours and I dont want anything to over heat.

    With the UMO+, you can flip the X and Y motors to the outside of the case. Search Youmagine for ultimaker motor corner. You won't have to worry about them overheating, and print quality even improves. You can avoid needing new rods if you use bearing adapters.

    Yeah I flipped the motors to the outside and flipped the wiring so im less worried haha and I havent finished my enclosure yet but it doesnt seem to get too hot in there but I have a bigger hole for my bowen tube so theres a good amount of space for the heat to escape. But yeah so far results have been impressive. I've been able to print at lower temps too which is always good.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
