Ultimaker 2 clone parts?

Recommended Posts

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 ;)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
