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.

Some remarks;

  • 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

  • If you noticed my nozzle is not UM2 default, its an exchangable "olson block"
