Laser cutting a replacement panel for Ultimaker S5


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Laser cutting a replacement panel for Ultimaker S5

Hello,

 

Due to an accident while moving the printer the rear frame panel on our Ultimaker S5 has warped such that the tabs of the spool-feeder cylinder are grazing the build plate and occasionally catching it.

 

I'd like to laser cut a replacement frame. Do folks know if DXF files exist for the Ultimaker S5 frame? I didn't find anything here, or via google, or on Thingiverse, but might not be searching properly.

    The source files are not open source (yet) of the S5, so you will not find any files related to it.

    But you should be able to order the part at your reseller.

    Thanks for the info Smithy. Upon closer inspection that frame panel is actually made of metal, so it would be more complicated to reproduce anyway. I'll check with my reseller.

    Yes it is, I don't know the English name, but in Austria we call these panels "Alu Dibond".

     

    But I think it is easier to buy this spare part from your reseller or @fbrc8-erin can help you directly.

    We call the material Dibond. For most any other panel, a replacement panel should be pretty readily available. For the back panel it's a little different; removing the back panel exposes the power supply, so back panel replacements should be done where the machine can be HiPot tested for safety.
