Building an Ultimaker Original Sourcing Parts

Recommended Posts

I am currently making our own Ultimaker original and have cut all the panels and I am starting to source my parts from the BOM. I am looking for some of the parts like the print head thumb screws and other parts that I can't seem to find on the web for the extruder and such. Once I find a source for all I will post the list to share with all other user here.

Thanks and can't wait to get our first printer up and running.

Thanks,

Jeff

Also, do consider doing some of the upgrades that people do anyways (like changing the hotend), right away...

There is no reason for you spending hours and hours, trying to source the original UM hotend, only to replace it with say an E3D v6 within the first few months of use... Look at the UM, as more of a general (good) guideline design for a printer, and then make your own (educated) choices, based on what you read on the forums...
