Snap on these standoffs (or feet) to your Ultimaker to help keep your work surface and printer safe from scratches. They also provide enough height to mount the power supply to the bottom of the machine, reducing its overall footprint greatly.
These guys are quick to print, and have been hollowed as much as possible to reduce filament consumption. They are designed with a tight tolerance to ensure they stay snapped onto the printer base when the machine is lifted. I've tested them with my Ultimaker Original +, and they fit the Original as well. I don't have access to an Ultimaker 2 or 3, but they should work the same on those families of printers as well.
In order to print a set of standoffs on a SINGLE or MULTI MATERIAL printer:
Download. There are two variants available - one with tight tolerances (recommended), and one with looser tolerances.
Import the file into your slicer, keeping the part flat on the bed. In order to find the best fit for your printer, I recommend slicing and printing a single part to test before printing the other three required. If it's too tight to fit, choose the looser tolerance model.
Slice. I used 0.200mm layer heights, but a thicker layer height would speed up print time dramatically. I used 4 top and bottom layers, and 3 perimeters, at 15% infill.
Print. I used MatterHackers Build PETG.
Install them. This is a very complicated step. Good luck.
If you end up printing a set of standoffs, post a Make so I can see how they turned out! Or don't, and I'll be very sad for days.
I'm Brent, and welcome to Brent Werder Design.
Here, you'll find all sorts of 3D-printer friendly models. It's always my goal to make 3D printing as accessible and useful as possible to anyone.
I've owned an Ultimaker Original + since 2015 and I've been trying to print better ever since I bought it. I built a Prusa i3 MK2S with the Multi Material upgrade in 2017. I'm working on an open-source RepRap printer design that is likely to be complete and up for download in 2019.
I also do VR sketching and good old 3D modelling, so stay tuned for new designs whenever I post them!
If you don't have access to a printer, feel free to grab a print from my website.
Thanks for dropping by, and keep on printing!
