UMO and U2 dimensional compatability?

Recommended Posts

Posted · UMO and U2 dimensional compatability?

Hi, I have two Ultimaker originals and I'm looking at upgrades and mods.


What ultimaker 2 parts are DIMENSIONALLY compatible with UMO?


Would the gantry/head fit on an UMO or are the rods/bearings spaced differently?


Are the XY axis sliders the same? Could I print sliders designed for U2 and use them on my umo? 


Are the Z axis rods and leadscrew spaced the same? Can I put a ultimaker 2 bed on an ultimaker original? 


I know about the electrical differences, just can't seem to find info on physical fit. 


Thanks in advance for your time.

    You can use an ultimaker 2 printhead on an UMO but you have to change the sliding blocks, because the two axes that go through the printhead are inverted.

    I made an upgrade were I put an E3D V6 on my UMO and used this design.



    As far as I know some people did put an UM2+ upgrade on an UMO. And I you have an UMO without heated bed it is an idea to buy one, but I am not sure that the UM2 heated bed is compatible with UMO. I am making a custom Heated Bed. with parts I buyed on AliExpress

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
