Printing the original feeder?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing the original feeder?

I am following with great interest the efforts of the community to deal with the chronic underextrusion problems of the Ultimaker2, as indeed I do have these problems. I can get amazing prints,

but only if I print slow. As soon as I try some more "aggressive" settings in Cura, (say the default "quick" profile) underextrusion is there, waiting for me.

My general impression is that I am always "at the edge of underextrusion" with my beautiful brand new Ultimaker2.

Therefore it is nice to see that the community is aware of the problem and is working to solve these issues, both at the hot end. I am following these discussions with great interest.

I have a simple question here. I read that the original feeder system can "wear out" over time. Can I print a copy of it, are stl files available?

Thanks!

    I would recommend to print IRobertI's feeder instead: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/alternative-um2-feeder-version-two

    It certainly is an improvement over the original feeder I think, even if the original feeder did not cause me any major problems.

    If you insist on printing the original feeder the step-files should be available here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Ultimaker2

    Yo need to convert the step-files to stl if you are going to attempt printing them.
