A study of Ultimaker ?

Recommended Posts

I have not found yet a paper about Ultimaker. I mean :

- a study of the mechanics with a lot of sinuses and cosinuses.

- about the stiffness of the frame

- the electronics and the programming

- thermodynamics

There are plenty of published papers about REPRAP printers, covering all the aspects

you are asking about.

Just learn to use google. In the first 5mins I found (specifically containing references to Ultimakers)

An Investigation of the Methods and Applications of Personal 3D Printing Technology

William Barksdale, Steven Daniel, Sandeep Dinesh, Nick Daniel, Kyle Pierce, Sean Smiley


A new Paradigm for Open Robotics Research with the C++ Object Oriented Mechanics Library

http://www.iearobotics.com/downloads/pa ... city12.pdf

Exploration of Multi-Material Additive Manufacturing

http://shelley.sakuda.us/files/ME495%20 ... Report.pdf

On the viability of the open source development model for the design of physical objects

Lessons learned from the RepRap project

http://fablabeindhoven.nl/wp-content/up ... n-2010.pdf

The thermodynamics are the same for all repraps so any paper on that will help (there are loads)

The electronics is Arduino, for which you can find anything you want to know about with google

The mechanics are just an implimenntation of very standard designs, so there must be hundreds of papers on that

if you look.

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
