Put your Ultimaker Upsidedown with Z-Unlimited

Recommended Posts

Posted · Put your Ultimaker Upsidedown with Z-Unlimited

I guess, I am one of the first users of the THING.

First impressions:

1. it works!

2. it is quite useless with standard 0.4 mm nozzle (printing smth with height larger than 300 mm with layer thicknesses lower than 0.2 mm if not takes forever, then makes the chances of successful printing very low). I have installed 'olson block' and 0.8 mm jet nozzle and now can print large objects within reasonable time.

3. The spiralizer (aka joris) works nice with shell objects. Yeah, the z-drive constantly and smoothly rising the whole ultimaker!

 

we want pictures!! ;)

Overall view of Unlimited Z. I bolted it to plywood case I made for displaying to UM2 at an Expo. Uploading from my phone. Don't know how to rotate the image

awesome, what are you making?

 

Good question! So far testing regimes and stability.

What would you make with an ability to print 600 mm high??

Even a better question! ;)

I think a lot of user cases should present themselves which will be useful. Do you have anything you need for the fablab?

Since I am currently not looking to make a 600mm print I am inclined to think in the area of art or design.

Or you could print a full size human skeleton, have organs in different colours for educational purposes?

The biggest bone in the human body should be round 50cm.

.. just thinking out loud ;)
