When will the UM3 Door be available?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks. Ultimaker states for the older printer: "The use of the door is strongly advised for most filaments that print at higher temperatures and which are likely to have problems with layer bonding. Because the door controls the temperature inside the printer, it prevents delamination and improves the surface quality of the prints."

When will Ultimaker provide a door for the Ultimaker 3?

No idea if Ultimaker will ever sell one, but most UM2 solutions work just as well, like this simple one;

There's one main difference, when you want to use the max bed size of the UM3 the head sticks out a tiny bit, so you would need a door that has room for this.

With the current default setup and priming positions you will not have an issue here, but I hope someday UM will let us set the priming position in CURA to use the full depth of the bed.

And if you need a top cover, for ABS printing, this will also fit the UM3;

    • "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.
