I'm assembling my ultimaker, but I'v got question, what is the spacerpack ? Somebody can take a picture of his motors to me?

My small pockets are not label ! I've got One with 4 white piece threated (12mm long), 8 black piece no threated (11mm long) and 4 white pièces no threated (16mm long)

Please help me !

Ps: the new forum isn't easy to use (How can I add a picture in a message?

    You have 8 screws needed for the side motors, so that would be what I would go with, though I didn't know they were that long (mine's an older one)... The white ones are for the electronics on the bottom, both as spacers and acting as couplers if memory serves correctly.

    So you think, the 8 black spacers (11mm long) are the rights...

    It's strange, because in the assembly instruction, they used 8 black spacers (so it looks good) and they doesn't talk about differences between them.

    But, in the wiki, particulary the parts include in the spacer pack, we can read that :

    Spacer Pack v1








    M3 threaded spacer




    3mm black spacer (16mm long)



    So, my 8 black spacers are no threaded, and if me spacerpack is missing, which spacers we have to use (threaded or not) for wich motor (X or Y, maybe 2 threaded by motor, but where) ?

    I would say the eight black ones are fine, as you really don't need a thread on them, they are just acting as standoffs from the frame to the motors. Being 11 and not 16 mm sounds better to me anyways and you would definitely need 8 of them for the motors...

    Me I had the same trouble 2 days ago and the 8 black ones are correct. This should be updated in the documentation.

    I hope this Picture can help:

    Hey, thank you ! It's exactly the black spacers I have. I mounted them yesterday without trouble. I think so it's ok.

    Thanks for the picture, I think it could be help others people. (Ultimaker should use your pic for their documentation).
