Prusa i3 MK2 based E3D hot end mount for Ultimaker Original Plus

Recommended Posts

I ran my UMO+ once before switching it to an E3D V6 hot end and E3D titan extruder. I wasn't very happy with the hot end mounts available at the time, so I adapted the Prusa i3 MK2 design.

The Prusa does a decent job of packaging print cooling compactly, I think. I don't think anyone can argue with the print quality they've been able to achieve with a wide variety of materials.

This uses a 5015 form factor fan for the print cooling fan. I got two on Amazon relatively cheaply. I used the fan that came from E3D for hot end cooling.

I printed this using E3D Edge, but I'll probably reprint it in ColorFabb HT. It was a slow process because I was printing on the Ultimaker using another mount, tearing it down to check fitment, making changes, and then putting it back together to print again. I got rather good at printing Edge without cooling!

I will be making some changes, but it's functional as it is now. STLs and OpenSCAD source is available in a gitlab repo: https://gitlab.com/burdickjp/UltimakerOriginalPlus_E3Dv6

Once I get wiring more permanently installed I'll let you know how it prints with the materials I have available.

    • "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.
