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.

    Hi!

     

    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
