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…

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?

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
