Whose good with CAD? Mount for UM2 printhead

Post by LePaul » August 1st, 2017, 11:17 am

Ok, so when the UM2 print head is rebuilt to 2+, I would really like to have it bolt onto another printer carriage

I am thinking, since the rod bearings wouldn't be used, those plastic pieces could be replaced with a 3D printed one (or CNC'd)

I know for the print head to mount flush with another mount, it should either have a spacer or the replacement piece extrude a small distance outward. I was thinking two horizontal, 5 mm holes would be enough to secure it?

Just thinking out loud I know some of you have made some frankenstein ultimakers!

I really can't imagine what you want to do or for what. Please make a doodle

Remove the E3D from this mount and imagine a way to attach the Ultimaker 2 print head in it's place

Ah. Sorry nxe this was inside ultimaker I didn't understood why you wanted to do it.

It should be easy indeed. Go go design it.

I'm no good with CAD, thus the query :)

To want is to do!

Two years ago I never ever did any 3D but because I wanted a magnetic head changer I made my own version. Just get ready to tost a few kilos of material on test and enjoy the experience.

Unless you want your own custom beer. Otherwise you need to hire a beer maker

The problem is that only if you have the exact measurements of the mounting points you could create a CAD for it. So you need to at least provide a 2D drawing with some measurements for the holes and such before somebody could look into this. But I agree with Neotko, there is no better way to learn CAD than having a real project to work on ;-)

Beer is too inexpensive to brew! Now a good Wine is worth brewing yourself.

Take a Dive into the world of 3D Modeling.

Thinkercad is for you, it is free it is online and it is so simple to use.

Thou I recommend a free Professional modeling software.

Autodesk Fusion 360 is free for Enthusiast / Hobbyist.

The free Start-Up/ Enthusiast licenses allow you to access Fusion 360 Ultimate with a yearly Free subscription. You can use this license if you are a small business making less than $100,000 per year (or equivalent), or if you're a hobbyist using Fusion 360 for non-commercial purposes.

There a many tutorials on You tube to assist you in making your first Model.

This is my first model after watching the tutorials.

@LePaul, something like this? :-)

Spent about half an hour, fist time i touched CAD in over 3 weeks, just arrived home from a vacation.

You will need to replace the long thumb screws with four M3x35mm screws.

It is designed to fit a 31x31mm hole pattern (Nema17 standard)

That's sweet!

That could latch directly into existing aluminum extruder mounts out there!

Looks like a print worthy of PLA...or maybe something pretty, like that big spool of CF I have sitting around!

I'm using the Ultralight Weight Extruder 713Maker offers (http://713maker.com/ft5.html) Scroll way down.

That's worked really well with my Titan Aero/pancake setup.

With that hole pattern, your mount should bolt right on

@LePaul, I see that ultralight mount got a pretty big cutout for the motor, it might be a good idea to make the back plate larger to get a bit more support...

So, here is a version with a 45x45mm back plate instead of the minimal 38x38mm one.

PLA would probably work just fine, but a CF version is of course nicer looking ;)
