UM2 print head assembly on UMO+ ?

Recommended Posts

As far as i know the x/y rods are the same mm and uses the same bearing. It should work specially if you change the sliders (um2 use plastic injection parts that are smaller than umo). Also you would need umo+ For the electronics to use the same pt100 that the heater uses (or more modding?) and that head would need 5v fan to cooldown. The slidders I think they need more modding since the endstop it's designed to be somewhere different.

Also the ptfe they sell I'm sure isn't the cool glass coated that ultimaker sells (you can buy it from them).

If you want to do this it's propably better to buy the parts on china and get an olsson block instead of that um2 copy.

In the end I don't think you would gain any quality but could be fun :)

I plan to make my second umo+ with the black slidders of um2 and use my minihotend mod to gain a bit cm.

    • 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.
