Ultimaker2 temperature lid
Keeps the heat inside for ABS prints. The goal was to create a lid That requires no modification of the ultimaker itself. UPDATED 17/11/20143D printer parts and enhancements
A free software license that requires that all work based on this must also be free software as in freely remixable and sharable by anyone under the same license but may be used commercially.
Also having problems with ugly warping abs models becaus of cooler airflow/ heat loss in your printer?
This lid should help you a lot to prevent this from happening.
There are 3 positions, Closed (duh), open 90° and removed from printer. (Well if you are creative, limitless)
I was originally planning to do this with a piece of plexi, but I needed some test cases for large chopped pieces, so I also provided a prinable lid.
Same goes for the screws, needed to test thread printing, so you'll also find some printable screws.
This is a work in progress, so there could be some changes.
You're free to add some change requests in the comment section, I'll be glad to incorporate them
source files are included (pro/e wf3). Please reupload if you improve them!
