UM PCB V1.5.7 vs V2.X

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM PCB V1.5.7 vs V2.X

Hello,

I would like to say thank you for your answears. And also to the UM team that made a great design and that gave the sources. (I really like the UM2 design, even if it might look simple, see picture in attchment)

As i really don't have the budget now i'm using my Arduino + Ramp and I'm trying to configurate the firmware.

I have some trooble on how to make the Z Axis going in the right direction.

Maybe i should go to the Ramp section of the forum to ask this new question.

Here is a picture of the printer underconstruction (it wasn't so easy...)

You can reverse the direction of a stepper motor by swapping any pair of wires.

Your build looks like it came our real nice.

Hello,

Sorry for the late answear.

The frame is 100% laser cutted.

The shaft are from old broken fax or printer i found on a fablab.

The aluminum is hand cutted and i had the motors from my reprap.

I just bought the Z motor

The files are in Ultimaker Github, you can download them for free.

They are in STEP format that can be open and converted with Rhino.

For the side and top i used Plexyglass (6 mm) for the frond bottom and back 2 layers of 3mm MDF, 2 layer allowed me to make "reservation" for hiding screw bolts etc... I have pictures explaining that if you want.

For the bearing for exemple, i did use the engraving function on the laser cut as I don't have CNC.

The part are assembled like "Ultimaker 1" they are square and not round so i had to redraw all the parts.

Right now I'm thinking of replacing the Arduino Ramp with an Ultimaker Control Board, but I don't know if i have to replace everything or if i can keep my LCD, SD car reader and selection board. (If someone do ?)

If you need more informations, feel free to ask me.

Best,

Jean-Luc

Hello,

Very nice.

Where did you find the part like printing head and contrôler, it looks like you have the UM2 mother board ?

Did you used a CNC for the MDF ?

Best
