Posted · Looking for the specifcs of few pieces

Hello,

anyone here can be so kind to give a few details about some pieces of the ultimaker?

i was interested in finding out the specifics of 4 parts:

-the threaded bar for the z axis it's a simple m8? if so.... m8x1 or 1.25?...or it is a ball screw?

-what about the thermocouple and thermocouple board and heather?

i tried looking around quite a bit but i failed to find any details

thanks for taking the time to read this... and i must apologise for my terrible english

    The z-axis is a 12mm diameter 3mm pitch acme rod (12 X 3 METRIC ISO TRAPEZOIDAL LEAD SCREW)

    The TC is a custom thermocouple, I believe it's a k-type. The TC board is here: http://reprap.org/wiki/Ultimaker's_v1.5.4_PCB#Thermocouple_sensor_board

    The heater is a custom cartridge heater (19V 40W), 5.92mm diameter (6mm bore), 25mm insert. a 1/4in x 1in will fit if you drill the bore. (google "cartridge heater", there are plenty of sources, I got mine from http://daltonelectric.com/cartridge-heater/index.htm (19V 50W cool tip angled leads, about $40)

      • 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
