Posted · Laser Pack received different from the ones shown in wiki

Hello,

I am in the process of assembling the recently purchased Ultimaker.

The 4mm laser sheet described here (http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Laser_Pack_v1.0) seems different from the one I received: https://www.dropbox.com/s/u10jpyg9ianqvt1/20121121_105527.jpg

I do not have the parts 7B and 7C to assemble the X-Y motors for example: http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Ultimaker_rev.3_assembly:_X_%26_Y_motors

Are there different assembly instructions I should use or did I get the wrong parts?

    The assembly instructions where not updated for some changes in the kit, they will be soon.

    Instead of the 7X parts you need to use the little black spacers. They are these black round things of 11mm in length.

    (Note: This change was done to reduce noise)

    A few other changes where done at the filament drive, but this should assemble the same, just look slightly different. This will also cause a noise reduction, and will make it easier to open/close the filament drive.

    Thanks for the tip. But I only found white little spacers. 4 each of slightly different size. 4 are just round tubes, the other 4 are hex shapes with threats inside:

    Are those correct and if so how do I use them exactly, since 4 are longer than the other 4.

    Edit: Never mind, found the 8 black spacer pieces. Thanks.

    Hi all,

    I've just received my kit in france last monday.

    After 6 hours of work, i've just have to do the wiring and here we go. This just to say that everything went really well and the kit is really well done.

    In my kit i have both 7x parts and black motor spacer. I've used the 7x parts as in the assembly instruction.

    Can you confirm me it's better to change them for the black spacer?

    Functional it will do the same, the only difference is that the black spacers reduce noise a bit compared to the wooden ones. My machine is running over a year with the wood 7x spacers just fine.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
