Ultimaker2 Extended Motor


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker2 Extended Motor

I'm trying to self source an Ultimaker2 Extended. The motor specified on github has a 380mm trapezoidal threaded rod in extension of the motor. The longest my supplier has is 360mm. Could someone with a Ultimaker2 Extended confirm that the last 2 cm won't be a problem?

Would seriously suck to have my Z axis fall off on me :p

    I just checked the CAD drawings, a 360mm screw should be no problem, the back cover will interfere with the belts at ~345mm so anything more than that will be safe to use.

    Nope, it is Fusion 360 :-)

    I'll hope you show some pictures of your self-sourced UM2 Extended when you are done!
