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.

Steve.
