Sourcing the Hardware

Recommended Posts

Posted · Sourcing the Hardware

Hi all,

I want to build the ultimaker and being an open source printer, I wanted to challenge myself. Is there an updated Rev. 4 bill of materials that shows where you could get them if you wanted to build the ultimaker from scratch? Thanks

I am working on one just now. I can post it if that's ok with the mods. It's probably not perfect and it has parts that I have changed. But the general idea is there.

DFRobot have a lot of the stuff, Ultimaker themselves, eBay, World of CNC (uk) for lead screws and smooth rod. That's some of the places I am goon to use or have used.

I had a decent amount of luck using AliExpress to source some of the parts, like the lead screw and bearings.

Just make sure the seller has a decent feedback rating.
