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).

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
