Since the axes on both the UM2 and the UMO are 18mm apart and use the same size rods, they can use the same printhead, but since the axes are the other way around the printhead gets turned 90 degrees, this modded piece fixes that :-)

Materials and methods

- All the parts of the original printhead minus the top plastic part
- This printed part

Could you upload a 1.75 mm version, like you have for the UM2 print head top?

Wicked cool!

Mini erik stickerErik Cederberg commented ago

@Luis, you really do not have to do anything more than a PID tuning software wise to make it work, i believe we changed some other stuff, but that was mostly because that we also changed out the side plates, Z rods and Z screw to make our UMO to a UMO+Extended :D ( )

1b8dfd89df36ee0e9fc66be8552bf356?default=blank&size=40Luis commented ago

Which parameters? How did you adjust those?

Mini erik stickerErik Cederberg commented ago

@Luis: just a regular UMO+ firmware with some parameters adjusted.

Just curious, what firmware did you use?

Thank you very much for sharing the design! I was going to design it myself but I see you've done a really nice design job here. I love the community, and thank you for saving me some hours of unnecessary work! I'll share some pics when I change the printhead!

@Meduza: I made a very dirty dual hack with OpenSCAD. I'll publish it here as soon as I'm sure it works.

Mini erik stickerErik Cederberg commented ago

@Dim3nsioner: I have not made a dual version, partly since i am not doing dual extrusion and it would also need to cut down on the bearing supports, as you can see on the new picture i have added.

Mini dim3nsioneer 3Dim3nsioneer commented ago

Very nicely constructed for being 3D printed. Do you happen to have a dual version?
