Hey community!

I had an idea. Can i use the Ultimaker 2 hardware to make an UM2extended ?

My idea was to change the frame and the Z axis.

Then i load the Firmware from an Extended on the Circuit board.

Depends how old your machine is I guess....and if you have the 2+ upgrade kit all wires are long enough. I assume all new PT100's are also only with long wires (don't know, but i guess there's only one type).

Most wires you can just extend, solder and extra piece to it.

If you want to see how much extra length you have just take of the electronics cover....

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
