  1. Well I think this is it for me. I know I've posted some setups i've tried before, but I think this one will work. I've modelled it fully to ensure it all fits. So with mine, the heads are stored at the back of the machine. Now printing the main holder, hopefully I can share some results tomorrow.

  2. Over the last few of months (time flies when you're waiting on parts sent via China Post), I built a UM2 clone using Misumi aluminum extrusions. It started as a project to teach myself AutoDesk Fusion 360 but it's turned out to be a great printer. I imported the UM source solidworks files in A360, dropped the walls (frame), and added extrusions and support parts so that all original UM2 hardware is supported. The entire guts is 100% UM2 with all hardware untouched as far as position/size. I used the UM2 assembly manual to build the gantry and to get other wiring clues. I've published it to Y

  3. THERE IS A MUCH BETTER TOPIC ON MATERIALS PROPERTIES HERE NOW: Filament Strength Tests I did some strength tests of various filaments. There were several surprises for me. I did two tests: a "pull" test and a "bend" test. Here is a picture of the two things I printed in 6 different materials: Pull Test Here is my pull test jig which is simple. I held on the rope while standing on a scale. I increased my weight on the rope slowly until the object broke reading the weight on the scale the whole time although a few materials stretched

  4. Thank you guys for visiting this page. For caring about the forum and being involved with Ultimaker. In front of you is the fruit of your collected feedback and various personal meetings with some involved community members. Hopefully, to your liking. Below you can find a list of what will be up next, and near the end of this post you can find the visuals. Depending on size, some of these points will gradually be implemented. Others will be emphasized. We are probably looking at a few weeks for the entire list. Upcoming improvements New wireframe with improved information density Ne

  6. I am using the Tinker firmware 15.0.3.1 with the olsson block. Can anyone provide me the offsets for the different nozzles like on the little instruction sheet which came with the block ? Thanks, Nils

  7. Yes, finally, after about 1.5 months, the forum shows back the signs of usability. Thanks to everyone involved in reviving it. @SanderVG - suggestion: Please unite all the "3D Printing in ..." topics under "Education" into one. It is more or less useless as it is now.

  8. Might be a minor thing but there is more swing on the front of the build plate so having the head use the front of the printer seems like a better idea than the back. Again that is a minor thing.

  10. If you could integrate a mini-viewer of STLs right here on the forum (steal the code from Youmagine) that would be pretty sweet. As for ini/gcode, maybe it would be cool if the forum could rip the print parameters out and present them in an easily readable table? That would make it easy for people to post their print settings, just upload the file and the forum presents it in a standard way across the site. This could be used in the print upload section as well so that people wouldn't have to fill it in manually.

  12. How about having some ramp upward or at an angle sideways on the ducking? I have no clue if that would actually work. We could have a custom cut of glass that doesn't go all the way in front. You leave the front clip open and make side clips.

  14. Hi Guys! As promised, today is going to be a beautiful day! We are going to launch some desired improvements in the forum and we will share with you some revealing screenshots of what the future holds for us. In the last week we went out of our ways to meet several community members in person who were kind enough to share their feedback and valued opinion with us once more. We listened, took notes and together we looked for the best way to shape our new platform. In this particular post I will share with you a list of improvements & fixes. At the bottom I will put a link to a new

  16. Sander; I'll try to be there. might make it might not. I do want to offer a suggestion; I think it would be great if there could be an evening focussed on maintenance lead by the community. I'd be happy to share my experiences, I have around 15.000 printing hours under my belt with several Ultimaker 2s.. I know a lot of people ahve also spend a lot of time and effort maintaining them and doing this that you won't find in the manuals.. is that an idea?
