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

Recommended Posts

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/.

    • "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.
