STL file download

 

Make sure your existing 3D printer is well calibrated on the X. Y and Z axis

We suggest to print all of ULIO's plastic parts on the same 3D printer (at least parts A, B and C)

  • Unless all of your other printers have the same precision

Please make sure to honor our proprietary rights and restrictions on use


How to proceed

1.We recommend that you download all of the STL files on your PC

2.We recommend that you slice all the STL files and save the Gcodes on your PC 

  • Please watch our slicing videos and follow our recommandations
  • Make sure NOT TO ROTATE THE STL MODEL FILE once you upload it into your slicer
    • They have to be printed on those specific axis
  • We highly suggest to print with the retraction enabled
    • If you have an all metal hot end one single drop of a good quality sewing machine oil (at your own risk) will do wonders to prevent PLA/PHA from jamming especially during retraction 

3.Save all of the Gcodes  on an SD card

4.In order to keep track of things, create a spreadsheet with the names of all the parts to be printed and then just check them off as they’re printed

 

 
 

A

A) Make sure NOT TO ROTATE THE STL MODEL FILE once you upload it into your slicer (They have to be printed on those specific axis)

B) Add support (lines) touching the build plate (watch our slicing video)

  • Make sure the distance between the support and the part  on the X and Y axis = 2 mm

  • Make sure the distance between the support and the part  on the Z axis = 0 mm

New additional part since December 2017 (beta test and not shown in the video):

B) If part C tilts forward (a bit is ok) you will need to download and print this shim . Please avoid a tight fit, part C should slide with ease with no effort (Click here to see the installation)

  • Print out this test scale to determine the right thickness of your shim

PS: You can always adjust the thickness of the rack by scaling it up or down (However shimming is a lot easier)

  • Scale the Z axis in CURA (+/- 0.5% to +/- 10%) 
    • To save time and PLA you can try this sample STL file to figure out your scaling factor (avoid a tight fit)
  • Manually sand the bottom backside with a 200 or 300 grain sand paper 

 

 
 

D

A) Make sure NOT TO ROTATE THE STL MODEL FILE once you upload it into your slicer (They have to be printed on those specific axis)

B) If part D does not slide well between the rails of parts C. it will be necessary to adjust its thickness. You can either:

  • Scale the Z axis in CURA (+/- 0.5% to +/- 10%)
    • To save time and PLA you can try this sample STL file to figure out your scaling factor
  • Manually sand the backside with a 200 or 300 grain sand paper

    • To save time and PLA You can try this sample STL file to figure out your scaling factor
  • Manually sand the backside with a 200 or 300 grain sand paper

C) You might also have to adjust the height of part F:

  • Scale the Y axis in CURA (+/- 0.5% to +/- 10%) 
    • To save time and PLA You can try this sample STL file to figure out your scaling factor
  • Manually sand the top part (opposed side of the teeth) with a 200 or 300 grain sand paper 

New additional part since December 2017 (beta test and not shown in the video):

  • You will also need to print and install this shim between parts I and F to prevent the X axis from moving up and down (click here to see the installation)
    • If the shim is too thick you can sand it until the X axis rack (part F) moves with ease

Watch our video to learn how to customize this part by adding your school's name for example

  • Click here to download our STEP file
  • Although not shown in the video it's very important to change your drawing units in mm (Do not keep them in inches)
