Ultimaker Original - dual extrusion


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker Original - dual extrusion

I have made a nice Ultibot  (ultimaker robot remix pack) dual extrusion print with my UMO.

Thanks to Stijn van der Linden for this fantastic object.

Nice results with the newest  Cura.


I have rebuild the print-head, i have removed the "Corrugated spring washer".
All parts are hold together with 4 extra "Lock nuts M3" and 4 extra "square nuts M3" and extra "washers".

The build plate leveling and print-head fine tuning is not so difficult anymore.

I made the modification so that it is easier to level the nozzles.

I have removed the Corrugated spring washer.

The lock nuts keep the wooden parts of the printhead together.
The lock nuts have just been tightened, allowing the thumb bolts to rotate freely.
In order to enable the assembly of the cooling fan I made two spacers of washers.
The cooling fan is attached to the aluminum plate from below with an 8 mm bolt (I'm not entirely sure, but it can also be a 6 mm bolt or a 10 mm bolt).


Adjusting the nozzles:

  • Pull the bowden tube up slightly.
  • Raise the square nuts.
  • Adjust the nozzles by turning the four thumb bolts.
  • If the nozzles are correct leveled, the peek is clamped between the wooden plate and the aluminum plate by turning the square nuts downwards.
    This also fixes the nozzles.
  • Push the bowden tube downwards so that it presses firmly against the teflon tube.

Bold = Ultimaker parts, Bold/Italic = added parts


That is all ;-)

    • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
      (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

      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.

    • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
      Cura now supports Method series printers!
      A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
