This proved to be simply too much of a hassle to do properly, so no further development will happen. Were it not so, it would probably be moved, along with all my other designs to youmagine, because of Makerbot's blatant disregard of intellectual rights and them stealing from the very same community they emerged from.
UPDATE 13.2.2014. I am thinking of changing this design to be completely printable, and working on that currently. Stay tuned.
This is an upgrade for the UM, which enables you to get rid of the short belts on your X and Y axis. The original concept was made and developed by snowygrouch, as presented on the Ultimaker forum, the difference being that his design uses printed mounts for the motors, while I am trying to make the thing with lasercut parts. You can find instructions and files for his version here: http://www.calumdouglas.ch so go take a look.
The reason behind this upgrade is to have one less source of potential backlash, and thus more precision.
Take your files off of Thingiverse, and save your designs from being stolen.
They stole from others, they WILL steal from you.
