Replacement Spacers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Replacement Spacers


It's a trivial thing, but while assembling my kit, I seem to be lost the spacers for the Electronics kit, as shown here:


- I remember seeing them at one point, but I don't know where they are now.

Firstly does anyone know of replacements for both the threaded and unthreaded parts that are the correct size? Failing that, does anybody have the proper measurements for both parts.

I tried my local Maplins, but the threaded part they had was threaded from both ends, with a big gap in the middle - not straight through in one direction.

Thanks in advance!

    Jury rig it while you get your printer up and running and then print replacements :D Sorry, but it had to be done :p

    The irony of the situation is not lost on me :lol:

    I'd just rather not run the risk of ruining the electronics if I can ;)

    The electronics need the cooling, and for proper cooling you better fit them properly. Instead of 2 bolts screwed into the threaded spacer you could take normal spacers and a long bolt with a single nut at the end. It will be more tricky to assemble, but still work.

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
