Hi all

 

Has anyone modified their UM2 to use the print cores rather than the standard hot end?

If so please point me in the right direction.

 

Thanks in advance

Graeme

I'll ask this another way.

 

Is it possible to use an UM3 printhead on a UM2?

 

I know the wiring is different with the pcb in the print head but surley the other end of the cable could be adapted to the UM2.


Regards

Graeme

Sure , I did both already 🙂 at least a proof of concept, never got to really publishing stuff...

 

 

 

I did make a better version of the single core head, using a single core bottom plate 3d printed in metal (shapeways), but I never really documented it properly..... always a lack of time and starting to many new projects 🙂

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
