Ultimaker 2 - What are your favorite (printable) upgrades? List included.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 - What are your favorite (printable) upgrades? List included.

I know we have the pinned post for the feeder system improvements, which was one of the first things I printed when I got my UM2, but there are a lot of other great upgrades to the UM2 that I didn't find out about until I started having issues and doing a lot of searching. So I figured I'd post what I think are some of the better upgrades for the UM2 that everyone could/should have.

I'll try to link to the relevant threads if they exist (like the feeder thread).

There are even more great upgrades (not printable however) like the work being done on the http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/7689-custom-heater-block-to-fit-e3d-nozzle-on-ultimaker-2/, http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/7024-teflon-spacer-replacement, and http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/6987-flexible-shaft-the-best-of-both-worlds/.

Hi CCW, ive designed a dovetail mounting system for various spools, loose filament and other items, details on YouMagine.

Don't like blowing my own trumpet but if others want to have a look and comment on its good or bad points
