Gnevko's UMO+ Small Upgrade

Danke schön ... ahh ... Thank you :)

I tried to make it as stable as possible. The ABS parts was designed to be very massive and printed with 0.8 nozzle, 50% infill and so on. At the moment it looks like to be stable enough... of course it will be nice to have a CNC milling machine at home ... ah dreams dreams :)

At the moment I am very satisfied the the result, I never saw so nice finish surfaces bevor.  

Next problem zones I want to change / upgrade:

1) try to find really gut linear bearings for the printer head. At the moment I see small gaps between roads and bearings if I try to move the nozzle.

2) try to make the printer bed more stable  (I think the vibration on the level changing it's a common issue on Ultimaker printers).

3) mount extruder on a wall or something like that but not directly on the printer (to avoid additional vibrations from retraction movements).
