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 github repo: https://github.com/LibreMatter/UltimakerOriginalPlus_E3Dv6

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