The rebuild begins..


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · The rebuild begins..

I recently purchased a UMO+ (EDIT: UMO with Heated bed and ulticontroller) that needed some work.

I will be upgrading it to a dual extrusion UM2 + printhead head, UM2 sliding blocks and gt2 belts and gears and don't forget a fully enclosed build chamber.

Any recommendations would be great

Stay tuned

    Ah i never realised there was a difference in frames , I thought the LCD & heated bed add on basicly converted the UMO to the UMO+ ?

    There is no UM2+ dual head. If you want dual extrusion you have to use UM2 (non plus) designs.

     

    I know.. however thats not to say a 2+ Head cant be made dual nozzle.

    Stamping out an hole and fitting an extra olsson block. Sadly with the help of some chinese parts will be no worries :)

    It isn't hard to puta umo+ board on a umo frame, you will need to cut some wood parts forthe board connectors and drill someholes for the board screws. Also the endstops have less room to move on umo frame, but nothing hard. Ofc you should drill/cut before painting. Check/print the left & bottom parts to see where the screws/holes go.

    all of the drilling was done by the previous owner, but before i disassembled it i it was fully functional and the end stops were all in the correct positions,

    However it will be a little more work getting the ends stops to pick um2 sliding blocks

    Oh you bought that hotend on aliexpress jennyprinter?? If it's the one that uses the bowden all the way into the heaterblock... Well, expect bad thinks, really bad thinks after some print hours. Also, check the pt100 since mine got burn... The only usefull part from that guys was 2 parts of aluminium, I had to replace everything b ly the real stuff to make it work 'perfect'.

    Be careful that the cover for the build plate (wood piece) doesn't rub against the back of the printer...on my Heated Bed Upgrade, it does. :(

      • 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
