Ultimaker 2 Spare parts?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker 2 Spare parts?

Looking to replace the four X/Y phosphor bronze slider bushes. Anyone have a link to these genuine parts?

I have looked through the website and drew a blank. The spare parts I did find - are only those listed for the most current models.

 

Ultimaker?

 

Cheers,

Chris

Hi Chris,

 

the sintered bushing (like every part of the sliding blocks) is the same for UM2, UM3 and S5, regarding to the description of my reseller (igo3d in Germany):

https://www.igo3d.com/ultimaker-2-sinteredbushing

perhaps this helps you to find the part at your reseller in GB.

 

Regards

K. I found this:

 

https://www.makers-hut.com/product/um2-ultimaker-2-aluminum-machined-slider-sliding-block-and-graphite-bushings/

 

Has anyone any experience of using these carbon lubricated bushings? My gut feeling is:-  I like the concept of them but I'm not sure how well they're fabricated and whether the concept is at all effectve.. ??

 

Ideally I'd just like a set of the genuine UM2 replacements. Ultimaker used to carry spare parts but I can't find them on the website.

 

Does Ultimaker no longer carry spares? Can anyone from Ultimaker give me a contact so I can order up the genuine parts?

 

(Failing that I'll get the parts from the link you kindly supplied Enigma_M4)
