Posted · Mark 2 Upgrade and Fillament Holder

Hi All

 

I'm finally coming to finishing my Mark 2 Upgrade and only the Z offset calibration to print, I want to use a better Fillament Holder I use iRoberts Ballraced holder at moment and printed a Holder for the second real that hangs on the side, im using Bondetch extruders and thought of printing the UM3 holder, has anyone seen a nice design that would be good to use with my setup.

 

any suggestions appreciated.

    For the last year or so I just put the spool on the table behind the printer.  Spool holders are over-rated.  Those feeders on the um2, um3, s5 can pull 10 to 20 pounds (5 to 10kg)  An extra ounce (30 grams) of force to rotate the spool on my table is not an issue.

    thank you for your input, unfortunately space says a spool holder is to be used, and complete agree about the force needed, that is why I like iRoberts so much it is completely free of any force needed..

    had a look at your design which I have downloaded, your also using iRobert Design? did you use the mount that originally fits on back of UM2?? iRobert did,  and what size of thread print bar, are you using mine is 48mm long but your looks a lot longer was it the 90mm he did.

    Yes, that's the mount of the UM2 spool holder, so you can put any holder that fits this.
    And yes, it's iRobert's spool holder, one of the long versions, 80 or 90mm.

    am I thinking correct Conny-g I looked for the UM2s holder and found this when Im looking at your pics have you cut this or have you used iRoberts equivalent part that slots in at the UM2 back.

    It’s the UM holes I cut out and both do fit, the UM holder and the iRobert one.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
