Bed stabilization, 8 mm axis and PCB mill

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I have already opened a topic in the german forums where I posted different upgrades on my UMO+ but I want to reach out to more people. 

 

I wanted to make my UMO+ stiffer. So I changed the two 6 mm axis which go through the printhead, to 8 mm ones and I completely stabilized the print bed. I mainly did these changes for milling PCBs with my dremel (+ flexible shaft). Also the unpleasant vibrations of the print bed while printing are gone.

 

I designed a modular printhead which let you easily change between the 3D printing nozzle and the miller (and in future maybe dual extrusion and laser diode). 

 

Here are some pictures:

    • "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.
