What is the ultimaker 2 frame made out of?

Recommended Posts

I'm not an expert, but my understanding is that milling machines are generally used for metal, because they are more heavy duty, and routers are generally used for softer materials like wood or acrylic. I have access to both with my Techshop membership. The router is a lot easier to use and can handle much larger items, but we are not allowed to use metal on it.

Thanks for the tip about that angled bit! That will probably save me some bloody fingers.

    • "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.
