Z-Unlimited now also for UM2, Kickstart campaign only 3 days left

Recommended Posts

Hey hey,

Just a quick post, I thought i will share it here as well. Yesterday I mounted succesfully an UM2 on the z-unlimited. You only need to make a hole in the backpanel [which yu don't see when you convert back to normal!!].

Official kickstart update:

Last weeks have been very busy using the Z-Unlimited installations for the follow-up of Renzo Martens’ project ‘http://www.rooiejoris.nl/chocolat’. From May 2th these life sized chocolate sculptures will be exhibited at http://www.fonswelters.nl in Amsterdam and at http://www.kw-berlin.de. Nevertheless we found some spare time in between to test drive an UM2 along the rail. And it works!

The conversion on the UM2 is even easier than the original. But… also a little bit more radical. You need to drill a hole [55x90mm] in the back panel [drill and template will be included in the kit]. By the way the hole is behind the motor cover so if you convert your Ultimaker 2 back to normal you won’t notice the hole. At the moment the firmware still needs some changes, but the control panel is already flipped [thanks Erik!].

Stretch goal XXL Colorfabb

The Kickstarter campaign is soon coming to its end. So tell your 3D printing friends who are interested in large-scale printing, there are only 3 more days to back the project and purchase a Z-Unlimited! If the campaign raises more than €30.000,- the Z-Unlimited kit will also include an XXL spool of printing material by http://www.colorfabb.com. Trust me, you need this…

ADCN lamp for Elephant campaign

Congrats on your award. Q? I think I've seen two different photos of this elephant....1) without engraved supporter signatures, and one with. Which one is in the colorfabb lobby photo? It seems to me like it is the "smooth, non-engraved one." Are there more than just these two enormous accomplishments/elephants printed?

    • "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.
