Wanted: UM2 knurled wheel (DE)

Recommended Posts

It should only be a few Euros

 

The price including 19% VAT has indeed two digits in Germany and if you add some shipping charge the first digit is probably not a "1"... :O

Depending on how urgently such a part is needed, it's still better than waiting for weeks for a cheaper part to arrive from China.

@chrii: In case you are using a Robert feeder, you may also want to consider replacing the knurled UM part by an MK7.

thanks for your answers.

indeed i`m using a Roberts Feeder .

i`m not in hurry, but i also don`t want to order in china when possible.

i made a short-bowden mod (20cm) on my UM2 as a preparation to upgrade it to dual extrusion. (the same setup mirrored)

the Problem is i can`t remove the wheel from my original stepper driver, its mounted too tight, therefor i just want to use the same wheel on the second extruder.

As i`m also switching to 1.75mm filament the same time there should not be a problem with the strengh of the stepper anyways.

Just realized I misunderstood and I was under the impression you were talking about a different part all the time, I thought you were asking for the rotating knob for some reason.. @dim3nsioneer's estimation is a bit cryptic but probably more accurate.

Please be aware that the Ultimaker knurled wheel probably isn't the best solution for 1.75mm Filament!

Hy @cjs, can you explain a little bit more in detail why ?

    • "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.
