Specifications about ultimaker's shafts

Recommended Posts

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.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
