Sourcing Parts to build Ultimaker 2

Posted · Sourcing Parts to build Ultimaker 2

Hi All,

I am planning to build an Ultimaker 2 according to the open source designs. Does anyone know if some of the parts that would be difficult to source or fabricate can be purchased directly from the Ultimaker company?

    Some parts will be hard to replicate exactly; but using the files it should be possible to find (or fabricate) close enough fits. I think that the electronics, heated bed & some parts of the hotend will be the hardest. Most other parts can be 3D printed (such as slider blocks & feeder). Thats how we prototyped them in the first place.
