These are parts for an automatic part unloader I made for the Ultimaker 2. With some adaptions it can be used with many other 3d printers.
The unloading is started by pressing a micro switch . This micro switch is operated by sending the extruder to a corner. With special software you can merge multiple gcode files into one file. In this new file the start switch is operated after each model is printed.

Materials and methods

The parts were printed with PLA at a layer height of 0.25 mm
