UltiPlotter, plotter head for the Ultimaker2

WARNING !IF YOU USE THIS HEAD WITH THE DEFAULT UM2 FIRMWARE IT WILL CRASH INTO THE FRONT OF THE PRINTER AT PRINTSTART !!ALWAYS LEVEL YOUR BED AFTER A HEADCHANGE.This Plotter fits the Ultimaker2 modular printhead.https://www.youmagine.com/designs/modular-printhead-for-ultimaker2-v2-2Unlike in a normal ballpoint, in this thing you need to place the spring at the BACK of the pen.I modified my firmware to keep away from the edges of the printer a few cm more during print start and bed leveling. This is where I learned how; http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/6436-more-information-during-print/?p=96906use CURA to load a photo, total hight around 0.8, layers 0.1Other settings after picture import;Z hop 3mmCut off object bottom, play with this depending on the picture, look at layer view.Nozzle size, this determines the distance between infill lines. From the 2 pictures included here one is at 0.4 nozzle, the other at 2.5mmWhen starting the print, just dial bed temp and nozzle temp to 0 and the printing will start.This article provides the use on a CURA setting file, but I did not use it; https://ultimaker.com/en/stories/view/99-transform-your-ultimaker-in-a-desktop-pen-plotterhttp://youtu.be/gbDo1wA9bQs
