Perfectly fitting UM side closure (due to small fan setup)

Recommended Posts

Hi again!!!

Due to the new fan shroud (see post http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/3446-um2-like-fand-duct-for-um1/)

I saved a lot of space - so why not easily close the side frames??

To make the closure removable, I used small neodym magnets and simple brackets which I posted on Thingiverse http://www.thingiver...om/thing:202168

side mount All preview featured

I printed two sets, mounted them with glue in the edges of the UM and used some CA to mount the counter magnets onto the acrilic windows. Unfortunaltely its hard to see the transparent "windows" on the picture I made (see the air-hooked post it)... :sad:



Nevertheless, it fit´s perfectly !!!

PS: next thing: self 3-point-leveling bed... :smile:

This is awesome...

I've been contemplating building acrylic sides myself and even altered the original laser cut drawings to get some laser cut acrylic panels with engravings

(files in this link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1259814/Ultimaker%20Acrylic%20side%20panels.rar)

I ran into the same problem with the standard, (as well as the donut type) fan duct sticking outside the frame when homing the printhead (or printing at the left edge of the build plate)

Thanks for sharing :)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
