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

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Prusa i3 MK2 based E3D hot end mount for Ultimaker Original Plus

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.

      • 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
