Handle for the Ultimaker 3D printer (or other things). Idea by Martijn (http://www.thingiverse.com/Martijn).

The version I printed didnt have all the edges chamfered (ouch, sharp!) and didn't include the Ultimaker text, so that has not been tested yet.

It works like a charm, allowing you to carry your Ultimaker wherever. Of course I am not responsible for any damage (falling UM's) caused by using this!

Use handle_straight if you want a straight bottom edge.


Place with text facing up and aligned diagonally in the print area. I used PLA with 25% infill, sliced by Cura. The print took about 1,5 hours on 100 mm/s.

After printing bolt it in place of the Z-axis covers. This will require longer bolts than are normally fitted there - I recommend 20mm.

I haven't screwed it on yet, so I do not know if it can carry my UM. But the chamfered edges and ultimaker text came out great.


how did you print this?

when i load it into cura, its outside the total print area :(

what did you use to slice / print this?


You should place it diagonally on the bed, like this: http://www.thingiverse.com/image:134741http://www.thingiverse.com/ima...

doh, i diddnt even think of that. thanks

Very nice! I just started playing with a handle design myself. Mine seemed strong enough when I yanked on it, but I carried my printer a few feet out of the house and the thing snapped off and broke! I was relying on layer adhesion for strength, which I knew was a bad idea, but it seemed pretty strong up until it failed! My UM survived with just a couple printed upgrades breaking, so its all good.

Your design looks great! Definitely much better to print they way you've got this one.

I do suggest people keep an eye on the screw holes and make sure they don't split or pull out!
