Ultimaker 2 Lid Designs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 Lid Designs

Need a lid for your Ultimaker 2?

Look no further, you can find the designs here: github.com/Tinamous/UltimakerLid

V1.1 is the most basic:


V1.2 includes draft excluder brushes to fit around the Boden tube and cables as well as an opening to embed a Raspberry Pi & 7" touch screen. We use OctoPrint to stream the webcam so it's handy to have the Pi directly in the lid.


We've found the lids work well for:


  • Keeping the dust off the build platform (a big problem in Makespace)
  • Improving temperature stability when printing
  • Camera mounting for remote monitoring using OctoPrint


The svg files for the 1.2 designs can be edited to remove the cut-outs for the Pi Display if you don't want it embedded in the lid, you can instead stick a USB camera as we did for V1.1.

Both versions include a .json file which can be used at MakerCase.com to modify the designs as you like.

Sadly the USB comms of the UM2 is proving problematic so at this time we've not been able to make better use of OctoPrint, hopefully with time the lid mounted display and OctoPrint will become more useful.

Hope you find the designs useful as well.

    • 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
