Ultimaker heavy-duty handle by jwags55 Apr 26, 2013


I modified the Ultihandle by Silvius:
* Increased thickness by 5 mm (now 20 mm).
* Reduced the size of the "cutouts".
* Removed the lettering
* Changed the square screw openings to round
* Added elliptical curves to the top and bottom

If it's not fitting, try rotating the object 45 degrees.

Handle laid flat. It would require a lot of support if you printed it on its feet. I slowed down the print to about 75 mm/s until the upper half of the screw holes were finished due to the overhang. The Silvius and Jennigma handles utilize square screw openings to resolve this issue, but I prefer the look of the round hole.

My last print was scaled 1:1.3 and Cura remembers very well:-) Did you btw printed the handle flatside or on its feet?
I tried on its feet, but my X-as shaft came lose half way through....
Today second run.

I printed 1.2 mm wall and 40% fill. This may be overkill, but didn't want the handle to break. The model must be positioned diagonally on the print bed since the overall length is 223 mm (8.78 in).

The original 16 mm long screws are not long enough - they should be at least 20 mm.

It is very heavy duty...it doesn't fit in my Ultimaker:-D

I Downloaded it, loaded in Cura 13.04. It is already a stl file so I can't change it or control the exact length by scaling. Suggestion?

It should fit properly without any scaling adjustments.
