Hello everyone, I would build a ultimaker, I looked it up on wiki, but I have not found anything :(

can someone give me the project? (dxf or dwg) and all parts what i need? (for the structure, i know the electronics boards, gen4 right?)

I have a cnc milling machine, I can cut my wood pieces.

can you help me?

thank you very much!

    Tutorial of the assembly is on wiki.ultimaker.com.

    I dont know which one is the latest version, but they rarely differ much between batches. The Ultimaker one should be the latest "official" one. Dont know how thick the wood is, but I think it was 4mm triplex.

    Electronic board is RAMPS 1.5.4, not makerbot Gen 4. Be careful about that one :)

    i found the tutorial on it! thanks you!

    sorry but i have a lot of questions about this machine because i'm newbie in 3dprinter.

    other my question is: what kind of pulley i need to use for build ultimaker? number of teeth and diameter?

    thank you

    The wood is 6mm for most parts. (I think there are a few 4mm parts in it, but not sure) There are also a few plastic parts in the kit.

    This:

    Might help you. It contains a list of the pullies and belts used, next to the rods. But the Ultimaker is an evolving machine, they keep improving it. Replacing parts. For example the printer bed was 6mm Plexiglas, but is 10mm now. The center shafts where 8mm, but have been reduced to 6mm.

    It's recommended not to use the wooden motor mounts:

    instead, use plastic spacers (same as used in mounting the electronics) this will reduce noise. This is a new discovery :-)

    I am still waiting for my kit but in the mean time, has anyone made these motor mounts out of plastic and if so are they selling them? I have been doing AutoDesk's Autocad since the early '80s and can reproduce (STL) if someone knows where I can find the exact dims. Thanks...

    You don't need any special plastics. Just normal spacers. Should be easy to get from somewhere.

    Almost everything is 6mm... except for the sides of the slider blocks if I remember correctly.

    Just make everything in 6mm. It looks like there is room for each 4mm part to be 6mm. And there are only a few 4mm parts anyhow.
