Ultimaker 2 Template for Simplify3D

This is a remix of Mike Bogutsch's (fortwienix) Wanhao Template for S3D,
Many thanks for his permission to use his instructions as below.

(The template I have made is for Simplify3D but I have read somewhere that it also works with other slicers.)

At the moment the Template is for the Ultimaker2, UMO and UM3 may follow shortly

Simplify3D template Installation:

Copy the stl file (e.g. UltimakerPrintBed.stl) to the following folder:
C: \ Users \ USERNAME \ AppData \ Local \ Simplify3D \ S3D software
Start Simplify3D and export your FFF profile to the desktop (File-> Export FFF profile)
Open the profile with an editor e.g:Notepad and search for the following entries (about line 145 ish)....
.....change the upper value from 0 to 1 and in the second line enter the name of the template. like below

printerModelsOverride>TEMPLATE NAME.STL</printerModelsOverride
If overridePrinterModels already is set to 1, you do not need to change this.

Save the FFF profile and import it back to Simpify3D
Restart Simplify3D

If you think the template is not centered. Import the model to Simplify3D, change the position and Export the model (File->Export Models->Export Binary STL)

Materials and methods

The STL file was produced using.
SolidWorks CAD software, the original model files were from GitHub.

Thanks to Mike for the original Wanhao template, permission to copy and use his original instructions which are clear and easy to follow, and the idea to add the UM2 one.

This is a 'What Duck" design

I’m not sure if you can.

Does anyone know how to change the color?

When mines loads in it comes up as bright yellow. I would like to change this to another color but i dont see any where i can.

I have the models (from Github), but is there a way to import an STL of the nozzle into S3D so that it shows the UM2 nozzle during the print preview?

To help trouble shoot collisions during multi-part multi-process prints.

Currently, I just eyeball it. If I am trying to get things really tight, I will toss the STL of the UM2 print head assembly into S3D and drag it around with the "move" command.

I didn't know if you guys knew of a better way.

Hi Christopher,

I can do, but,

a) are you just after the nozzle or the heater block as well, and if so which one.

b) do you want the whole head assembly, fans, ducts and all etc.

c) do you want it combined with the platform and if so in what point in relation

d) you want a separate model that you can do what you want with.

It would also depend if you had the extended as to the Z height position.

If you have a CAD package you can get the files from GITHub and build your own assembly then export it as a single combined STL, combining in to S3D in the same manner as described in the instructions.

Is there a way to do this for the nozzle too?
