CLOSING ULTIMAKER 2+
Today we show you the closing for our Ultimaker 2+. In the previous posts of “success stories” we showed you real and functional solutions for companies. In this case, we are presenting a solution for your office.
We are thinking in closing the top of our Ultimaker for a while, as we always have the same problem when we have to print for a lot of hours and we have to leave the printers working when we are not in the office.
When we return the next day, work space is at a temperature quite similar to the exterior. This causes very big and fast temperature drops inside the office. These factors noticeably affect the printing. For this, we have created this kind of top cover, this way we control the temperature of our printer, making the environment more stable and viable to print better. We have created it by printing small pieces that we have later assembled, and with a rest of methacrylate we have closed the plans.
After the first printing tests, we see that we have managed to finish the pieces without problems with very good results. We avoid cracking and warping problems. Is a good solution for ABS printing
