The popular Z-Axis Adjuster for Ultimaker revised, again. Normally gwpoulos' version is long enough to fit a stock Ultimaker. As I use a heated bed the z-endstop needs to be adjusted, too, and gwpoulos' adjuster became too short, again. Here is the fix with a adjuster that is about 15 mm longer.


  • Print in ABS or PLA
  • 10-20 % infill
  • No support required
  • Place the adjuster into the specific slots on the backside of the machine and mount the z-endstop from the other side
  • Put a standard M4 screw into the top hole and adjust the z-endstop as needed
