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:

    SY42STH38-1684A

     

    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.
