Ultimaker with Twice the X,Y Build Envelope Keeping Z Standard
I have been working on building a larger Ultimaker as the one Supplied just isn't big enough.
I have been working from the Original REV 3 Ultimaker Laser Cut Drawings found http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:13571
My Plan is to have a panel made at work consisting of 4mm Birch Ply with 1mm Aluminium Both Sides and then cut out on a CNC router with a 3mm cutter. On the DWG,DXF file you will see that I have started to put 1.5mm rounded internal corners which I will take a file to after. These should be cut out on the 15/04/2013 as my panel has been pressed. I then should be able to start the assembly of the case that weekend as I will have more time for finishing touches like rounding some of the edges off to help give it a better overall finish before taking it back to work to get sprayed.
I am not sure what to do with the base yet. I have been reading up on a lot of peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s comments, I am thinking of an Aluminium heated bed.
The side panels I am going to put a recess in for a Perspex panel.
I am going to purchase the Laser less Ultimaker Kit https://shop.ultimaker.com/en/ultimaker-kits/laserless-ultimaker-kit-new.html .
What will be different is the X,Y Rods and Belts keeping the more expensive parts standard. I will be asking Ultimaker when I come to purchase this kit, if they will supply those parts to me, to my dimensions at an additional cost.
I am not looking for funding like someone else on here.
But I am after your knowledge, especially with regard to an inexpensive way for the base.
