Ever dreamed of printing larger objects with your very own Ultimaker? Joris developed an amazingly simple add-on to achieve this: the Z-Unlimited. The Z-Unlimited basically flips your 3D printer upside down and moves it all the way up along a wall while it is printing. To convert your 3D printer will only take you 10 minutes. And this operation is just as easy to undo.
The Z-Unlimited is a wonderful way to enlarge your capabilities using an Ultimaker without changing your workflow or ending up renting a bigger workstudio. On Kickstarter the Z-Unlimited will be available in several heights and comes with a smart support system for high printed objects including an easy to install software update. The add-on is available for Ultimaker original and original plus. Z-Unlimited is licensed under Creative Commons (BY-NC).
More specs and tips & tricks for printing big sized objects will follow.
The Kick Starter Campaign was succefully funded
More information can be found there.
The basic Z-Unlimited package comes with a carriage set and a rail of 1.2 meters and all other parts needed to start printing [Ultimaker not included]. This will extend your print-area in Z to 65cm high. If you wish to go even higher you easily mount extra length of rails to the system. To get high quality prints all the way to the top Z-Unlimited features a very simple support mechanism that can be adjusted to any height.
