Remove side panels

Recommended Posts

Posted · Remove side panels

Hi! I wanted to know if it is possible, or if anyone has tried to remove the side panels from the printer.

I would like the printer it to be more open in order to watch it work from 3 sides (such as in the Ultimaker Original). Has anyone tried this before??

Thanks!! :)

    Don't cut holes in them, they are too nice looking for that ;)

    If you want to, you could get some laser cut acrylic sheets and fit those instead... it should be very easy to find the drawings for the frame of the machine on GitHub (they are open source by now), modify them to your liking (draw a cutout in the centre of the side panels) and send the drawings off to a laser cutting service to have them made in 6mm. acryliic.

      • 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
