DXU - Efficient Dual Extrusion Upgrade for UM2+

Recommended Posts

This setup looks great. I’ve read through all the files and looked at the stl files. I am trying to make this work on my umo+.

Since the um2 and umo+ share a lot of the same hardware. I figured it wouldn’t be too much adjusting. I was thinking maybe something like this 

-Print x mirrored stl files

-Use the same hardware from the bom 

-Slight tweaks on the firmware

-Do I need um2+ upgrade on the umo+ to start off with?

i don’t mean to bust in on the thread but figured this would be the best place to start

I think you might need to swap the plywood sliding blocks with UM2 nylon blocks because the cross shaft on UMO is the other way around. 

No need to get the UM2+ extrusion upgrade. 90% of the parts on printhead are useless for this setup.

I tried to order the required hotend kit from taobao but unfortunately, the seller didn't react for weeks. As long as there is no other source for the hotend kit, it looks like we're lost.... 😞

 

Normally the seller is very responsive, something probably went wrong. Taobao is a local marketplace, unlike Aliexpress. Sellers ship items overseas through the Taobao's official parcel transfer service. Sellers normally don't directly sent international mail. It's possible that sometime the order is not placed correctly. If you would like to PM me your order number, I'm happy to check with the seller what's going on for you.

Thanks for the support! Items were out of stock and taobao messaging function didn't work as expected. Everything went well. By the way, the hotend seems to be back in stock 😉

Hi, 

 

you have to look for an agent wich orders for you.

I make a lot with CNC's and buy all from one seller over Aliexpress and I asked him if he would order it for me and send it to me.

 

But look for an agent service they will amount a few euro and will send it to you.

 

Best wishes

Daniel

Hi, 

I have to took a decision between 3D printing and cnc milling.

Both are great hobbies but I have to choose one and don't have the time for all hobbies.

So I decided to make cnc as my primary hobby (waf), if you know one from Germany who is interested in an UM2+ clone 1.75mm with the parts for dxu upgrade look here.

Thanks and best wishes 

daniel

Thank you for your fantastic work. I really liked this compact and efficient design.

The documentation is thorough and the design is well thought. It's not difficult to print and assemble.

I printed it with transparent PC, so it has its style.  

I got pretty good results with it. And most of all, the DXU itself look really good. 😎

Thank you for the tip! Actually just doing a regular internet search for "Taobao agent" several website pop up. So far I'm pretty happy with http://bhiner.com - you can simply copy and paste the urls in their search bar. With all the required parts from Taobao I end up with around 53€ (don't know if there is additional shipping costs). I'll edit this post when I ordered and tell you how it goes.

BTW: which diametres and lengths are the heater elements and PT100 for these heating blocks?

    • "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.
