Vertical distance between 6mm rods on the UM:O?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the vertical distance (center to center) between the 6mm x/y rods on the Ultimaker Original? I'm trying to design a new print head, and the PDF files in GitHub don't explicitly have that level of detail. My measurement with the printer assembled is 18mm, but I don't want to print the head, pull everything apart, then find that I was off by 1-2mm.

If you'd migrate your designs from Thingiverse to YouMagine that would be great. I always look for designs and ideas at YouMagine, and feel a little dirty if I have to look on Thingiverse.

You yourself already posted about a tool that can help you migrate when you posted about ShapeDo last June. They put their migration tool in GitHub: https://github.com/shapedo/thingiverse-backup

    • "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.
