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, C and Q)

  • 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)

New shim added January 2018 (not shown in the video):

B) Following the complete assembly of the printer, it might be necessary to install a shim on the backside of part C in order to minimize back and forth wobble ( click here to see an overview of the installation)

  • Download the STL file of the scaled model to determine the proper thickness of the shim (see gallery on the left)

C) Parts A, B , C and Q have to be printed on the same printer

  • Make sure part F slides well between the rails of part A
  • Here are two videos that show how to adjust the height and thickness of part F in CURA

New shim added January 2018 (not shown in the video):

C) Following the complete assembly of the printer, it will be necessary to add a shim between parts I and F in order to prevent the rack from lifting when it moves to the left ( click here to see a preview of the installation)

  • Download the STL file of the shim and adjust its thickness if required (see gallery on the left)
    • Make sure the X axis rack moves easily

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

  • Make sure you have Autodesk Fusion 360 installed
  • 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)

A) Once you customize this part you can :

  • Send it directly to Cura from Autodesk Fusion 360
  • Save it as an STL file 
  • Make sure to rotate the part as shown in the video (left gallery)

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

C) We recommend to print this part with an infill of 30%
