the motor ended up not fitting properly, is there a list of info i need to know about the stepper motor in order to buy the right one from a company that makes them, cause there are some in canada and the distributor here is out of stock for a few weeks and I really need it as soon as possible.
You can find some of the information in Ultimaker's GitHub.
Here is a link to the PDF where you can see the dimensions at least:
But it doesn't show any electrical details, or what brand/model they actually used.
You could also check this clone...it probably uses a stepper with similar characteristics as the original one:
He seems to use this one:
Also if you use that large one, you can remove the bed white thing since on um2 it's just a cover from dust. On github there's a um2 assembly manual that you can check to reverse the installation and take it out. (i suppose)
If your in a hurry, did you check Ultimaker's US manufacturing partner? no idea if they ship to Canada at a reasonable price though...
actually i found the best deal is a website called http://www.robokits.co.nz/ they had them cheaper than anywhere even with shipping included. ultimakers canadian distributor had to order them from a warehouse which takes 2 or 3 weeks plus then shipping to me all while costing more than this UK company to bring it to canada
I only see two problems.
It looks larger than um2 x/y stepper so might hit the bed.
And the shafts isn't round. There's must be a reasonwhy ultimaker doesn't use marked x/y motors there but only on the feeder?
The amps, force and 1.8 degrees seem ok. Worse case you break something
Pololu steppers are cheap, but if you buy them otherplace than ultimaker distributor you will need to solder the propper plastic plug to connect it.
