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!

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
