Modular head to aid heads that are alternative into the Ulitimaker2
Inspired by Foehnsturm (https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ulitimaker-orig-modular-printhead-merlin-ubis) but build from scratch to the Ultimaker2.
I began based on a baseblock of foehnsturm, but due to the asymmetrical rod placement you would lose buildspace then crucial. I handled the get an pole placement.
You can use this head but the margins are small. When starting a print, I only have 1mm of distance between the block on the printer's front.
If you create your own alternative mounts (paste struder, plotter, full metal head,... many jobs possible. .) You will have to decrease the XY margins in firmware.
Mount as in the image, for cable direction take 2 tie wraps of the exact same small size, from 1 you need the head.
For mounting and un-mounting; eliminate, remove the 2 screws at the left side.
To eliminate the 3 original black plastic components you do not need to eliminate cables the fans have connectors in the sleeve you can easily clip/unclip.
Make certain to level your bed
Please discuss it, preferably including the step file if you create a different mount for this.
I printed mine 1,2 shell, with 0.1 layer, fill that was 50%, 35 mm/s
"Mount_v2i2e. Stl" has 1 build in service you can easily take out with a little plier, no need for additional support in cura.
Mark your XY rods before removal (they are not the same length) and assess how far they want to stick out to touch the endswitch
