70mm Spool Holder


Recommended Posts

Posted · 70mm Spool Holder

I have started to use a filament that comes on spools that the spool hole is 3/4" deeper. Therefore they will not fit on the standard spool holder that is delivered with the Ultimaker 2+. I was able to find a 70mm Spool Holder to print and it works perfectly but did not print so well. Fortunately I don't have to look at it because it is behind the printer. Does anyone know if Ultimaker makes other Spool Holders that are 70mm deep that can be purchased?

    Yeah the new smaller spoolholder on the + is not the best for everything, f.e the carton "refill" spools don't really fit.

    Maybe you can get a old (longer) spoolholder from the UM2 from someone (or your local supplier), otherwise just print something like this;

    My brain wasn't quite firing on all cylinders there when I replied. I read 70mm like something completely different... Yeah, you can probably find a reseller that has one of the older, longer ones (where are you located?). Or if you ask Ultimaker directly real nice they might be able to help you out.

    Robert,

    I'm located in the USA. The resellers that I have asked told me to reach out to Ultimaker. Would you know of any resellers that would sell me this piece?

    Robert,

    My reseller said he does not have a part number for such a piece so he couldn't order one if I wanted it. I sure wished I could find someone that would sell me this item.

    Sorry, I don't know a particular reseller, I just figured if you mentioned where you were from someone else might.

    The part number is 1158 according to my lists. Strange he wouldn't have access to the same lists as a reseller. But it could simply be that Ultimaker don't have any left as the long one was phased out. I can't remember the last time we ordered any as it isn't exactly a "hot" item.

    But I dunno, like you said, the one you printed works and you don't even see it, so why bother? :)

    Ugh. The spool holder I made broke. It is way too fragile. Trying another author. I'm really hoping Ultimaker still stocks part # 1158. Does Ultimaker ever join this blog for comment?

    Many um people are on this forum but for parts you need to ask um resellers. They stoped direct sales.

      • 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.
