Posted · Specifications about ultimaker's shafts

Hello guys. I want to modify my UMO's head and I need two longer head's shafts but I don't want to lose quality. I wanted to use UM2's shaft because I think they are longer enough (they should be 320mm isn't it?) But it looks pretty difficult to me to find them and so I want to have a look somewhere else.

But I need to know the spec that I need to look for: type of the metal; bend tolerance; surface treatment etc.

Some one of you know that?

Also... Do you know if chromed bars are better? They look shiny with no rough surface and they don't get rust (which can happen with standard ultimaker''s barrs).

Thanks to all.

    Misumi only sells to bushines and Igus sells to anyone. Used both kinds and both brands works for me with very nice quality.

      • 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
