Lazy susan setup for Ultimaker 2 (hey Izzy)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Lazy susan setup for Ultimaker 2 (hey Izzy)

I am totally unable to find a post by Izzy on the old forum in which he posted a few photos about the lazy susan setup he made for it's printer. Would really love to see these photos again. Izzy not sure if you know where your old post is, or if you could repost the photos maybe.

This inspired me to make something similar for my UM2. Indeed one problem with the UM2 design is that you do have to be able to access the rear easily, for managing the filament spool. This limits the places in which you can operate the machine.

My best spot for the UM is a table with a wall behind. I could not place the UM there, until I made the setup I show in the pictures below. Hope this can be of inspiration for someone else.

This is the lazy susan I used:



Not really the best, not sure I can recommend it. It works, but next time I will probably get a different one.

I just used a piece of tough plastic similar to this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/tagliere-in-polietilene-bianco-cm-50-x-40-x-2-/181136898018


just layed on top of the lazy susan (unsecured, but this lazy susan has some small rubber foots, on both the inner and outer ring, opposite sides, that keep the thing in place), and the printer on the top of that. Some anti vibration very thick tape pieces - Anti vibration tape -


were used to avoid the printer from moving on the plastic surface. Izzy's setup used a nice and heavy piece of wood instead of the plastic, which looked much better. I just used what I had around for now. Will probably make a version 2 with a proper piece of wood.

The UM top cover and bottom drawer are from http://www.3dprinterstore24.de/, nicely done stuff.

I think you want this one:


Google is your friend - they know search better than most people. To force search only within ultimaker do this:


Add to that "izzy" and "lazy susan" and done!

Also all the old links to the old forum now automatically go to the same topics on the new forum. Cool!

    • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
      (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

      This update is for...
      All UltiMaker S series  
      New features
      Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

    • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
      Cura now supports Method series printers!
      A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
