Bed stabilization, 8 mm axis and PCB mill

Recommended Posts



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:
