Ultimaker Robot Logo covered by the Ulticontroller!

Recommended Posts

If anything needs a hack!

I love that logo, as my printer comes together day by day, I am looking forward to adding some paint to make it stand out more...

...then I assembled my Ulticontroller and noticed it will cover it up!

What mods have others done to keep our little friend visible?

:)

That's what i do as well. Sometimes you want to keep an eye on that feeder or how your filament unravels.

This can be done at the same time as monitoring/using your UltiController when it is on the side.

And you can see everything just as good from the side as you can from the front :)

Nice idea. How is the angle if you want to look at the screen.

Is everything visible when standing in front of the Ultimaker?

Moving the UltiController to the side also provides some protection for the power switch/cord. That's never a bad thing when you don't want to interrupt a 13 hour print...

The viewing angle is kept the same since the slots are kept vertical like the panel.

Yes, I can still view the screen quite nicely. And, pushing the SD card in does not jostle the controller from the panel any more.

Sounds like you are speaking out of experience?
