UM2 stepper motors?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new to the 3d printing world. I like tinkering around with stuff. Currently, I'm trying to learn all I can about how these printers work.

My question is what stepper motors are used in the UM2, for the X, Y, Z axis and feed? The reason I ask is there seem to endless different motor specs out there and the UM2 seems to spec out as printing quite precise, so I'm just curious. Thanks in advance!

UMO is just as accurate. I don't know if this helps but try googling it.

This is written on the X stepper on my UMO:



Thanks gr5, that gives me a place to start researching and learning about these steppers.

The main advantage of the ultimaker is in the super light weight print head. The steppers are pretty ordinary and used in most 3d printers today. You can learn more about steppers suitable for 3d printing in the rep rap community. They have tons of well organized information.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
