This is a mod of the Ultimaker 2 that moves its extruder on the top of the feeder:
It is intended to try reducing the underextrusion problems (see http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/3261-ultimaker-2-extrusion-problem/page-2)
You have two parts to print:
- The block.stl, this part binds the extruder on the top of the feeder.
- The tube.stl, this part is a guide tube that goes inside the feeder, because the guide tube will now enter in the filament pusher box on the top, and not on the back
Materials and methods
You don't need extra material, but you'll have to make extensions for the extruder stepper wires. I personnally added connectors to it to make it easier (I can take it on the top or on the back with just some screws to change)
Issues are used to track todos, bugs or requests. To get started, you could create an issue.
I use the tube. And a short pice from the bowden to guide the filament. My Ultimaker is shaking too. I'm thinking about a other system because I'm not satisfied!
(Do not hesitate to share photos & videos)
Do you use the tube? Or do you have some bowden cut to guide the filament?
What speed do you reach?
Actually, my printer was really shaking, resulting in ringing parts after this mod
I have done this project. Works very well. Only by using high speed the Ultimaker is rumbling a bit. The extrusion power is fascinating!
