  3. It feels like we've had too many threads with people having trouble with their printers lately so I figured, why not start a positive thread to balance it out Post your latest print here, be it big, small, advanced or simple. Get people inspired to print more stuff. I'll start out with my latest little creation that I recently finished. It's a PCB vise used for holding PCBs while soldering (or whatever else you might be doing to them. I'd say it's my first real "product" to come out of my printer. This was sliced with Netfabb using the "Standard" profile. If you want your own copy you c

  4. I've posted this in another topic, but now it actually works as intended. The plugin ads a menu item to top menu for calculating the price of a print. Just like the old Cura it uses density and price per KG to calculate the cost of a print. Simply download it from https://github.com/nallath/PrintCostCalculator and put the folder in the plugin folder. Cura should automatically load the plugin upon startup.

  5. Hello, I recently received my UM2. I have printed many things from the provided SD card, as well as one model I made myself, and I am amazed at the quality of this thing! However. . . I'm having some serious problems with Cura. Most of the time, when I press the "SD" button to save my gcode to the SD card, I receive the error "Failed to save." I have only been able to upload a single model to the SD card. So I guess you could say that "sometimes it works," but so far I have no idea what is causing it to work, or to fail. I'm running Cura 14.09 on Mac OS X 10.7.5. Any ideas on what could b

  6. Hi everyone, Today we've released Cura 15.06.02 with a host of fixes and improvements. Release notes: Loading of models has been improved and should load as fast as before. When changing setting visibility in the configuration dialog, we now also display tooltips that describe what the settings do. On Windows, you can now load larger models. We've tweaked memory usage in this release, however a more structural solution will be implemented in a future release. It's now possible to remove machines that were added during the current session. A notification is displayed when the mesh file

  7. When the feeder kicks back (says "tock"), it indicates that the filament is unable to forward for some reason. This can be due to either a clog in the nozzle, some pressure/excess material in the Bowden tube or feeder, or just trying to print too fast. If it's happening on retractions, it could be caused by the change in pressure in the Bowden tube when the retraction is over and the filament is pushed back up to the nozzle. What are the retraction settings you're using? And have you changed filament other than unloading to cut the ends off, or done the Atomic method yet? Are you using the fi

  9. Hi there, I am an assistive technology practitioner/Maker/DIY-er/Multimedia artist (not an engineer). I have worked with Printrbot/Repetier/Marlin as an on again off again hobby and now currently, I am working with a relatively new UM2 at work. Because I work in disability services, we are most focused on the creation of Tactile learning objects. However one of the things we are noticing is that while there is a disability presence in the Maker movement in terms of people with disabilities hacking their own adaptive equipment, or people designing things on behalf of people with disabilities b

  11. Hey guy's. Its been a while since I posted anything on here so I thought I'd share this with you. Although this is my first post in a long time, I've still been lurking in the forums and I have to say I'm blown away by some of the stuff you guys have been printing. Seriously inspiring stuff! I've just launched my new website so head over to see some 3D renders of this guy leohaslam.com Cheers

  12. Haven't posted here in a while, I had an order for a Stargate I haven't made in a long time, and I lost one of the parts molds, so I thought why not print it and make a new mold Printed in PLA white cleaned up the part, made 10 copies (1 extra), in tinted resin. and painted these in the same paint scheme as the rest of the Stargate. and whole gate, just to show off The Stargate is 1 meter (40") in diameter
