Ultimaker Project

Recommended Posts

Over the (almost) past year we worked on redesigning an Ultimaker rev 1.5.3. If someone is interested in the preliminary results, have a look here :http://www.flickr.com/photos/tpultimaker/sets/72157632330142589/

The changes made are eg.:

 


  • Heated Bed
    New Nozzle
    New Extruder-Design
    New Head-Design / Dual-Head
    Front-Panel
    some electronical-tweaks

 

Note: the pictures are quite mixed up regarding their date.

Merry Christmas

pleased to see I'm not the only one working on this - tho I'm jealous of your large empty workshop compared with my cramped conditions ;)

do you intend to share the new extruder design?

I used a heat spreader and double fan like that in my initial tests with nylon (as did the reprap boys) - how did you find it? I eventually decided it was too big and heavy and replaced it..

all the best, nik

    • "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.
