UM2 stepper motors?


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 stepper motors?

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.

        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.
