Ultimaker 2 clone parts?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 clone parts?

I've always wanted an ultimaker 2 printer but the price of it was too much for me. I've see clones of the printer but the sites they are on don't have a lot of info on them. So here's my question: where can I get ultimaker 2 parts like hardware and electronics? It would be very helpfull if anyone knows.

    Hi there,

    I'm afraid that the official Ultimaker community is not the best place to ask for how to get an illegal version of the printer we all love ;)

    You can easily find the Bom for the printer you want (not yet for the + version), it's all available on github. After that you'll have to find the parts yourself. Of course the easiest way is to go through an official reseller to get the parts, all of parts are pretty common to 3dprinters (motors, limit switches, pulleys, belts rods etc...).

    You can probably ask for a local company to cut the frames in another material if you want to save some money.

    Or go for a UMO + which is a very good printer with everything you need ;)

    I found the parts and the stl files to print a clone and its parts but i would prefer to use ultimaker hardware instead of what is listed on the BOM. I was looking at the umo but i plan to do lots of long prints and i did`nt want to have a lot of noise. Heres the link to the clone. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:811271

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
