  1. Mini ITX case - 193 x 196 x 116mm Had some printer issues during the print but since it took 20 hours and it's a first computer for an 8 year old, it will suffice

  2. If there was room you could have a rubber disk that rotates after every wipe, then at the bottom of the disk have a collection bin that the bits of plastic get rubbed off and drop into.

  3. Here's some prototype models we did in the FDG office. Each piece is 2"x2":

  4. For fast prints I bought a second glass from ultimaker. So I just swap it recalibrate and print while the glass cools naturally.

  5. Damn gnomes! Wild guess: maybe the knurled wheel is dirty and has some "melted" filament in the "holes" ? That could slightly change the diameter i guess and have some kind of negative influence on the requested amount Damn gnomes 8)

  6. I use revit - so like you have this 3d model in the system - and it has taken a while to work out how to export the model and then 'wrap it' to create a single solid stl that can be printed - and in the software I often have a 'printing' set that I use to extract some of the information like this; ..... and this and am developing a new arm for e-nable

  7. Hey everyone! Stephan Watterott, the CEO of Watterott electronic (producer of the SilentStepStick drivers) told me last week that a new stepper driver will be released within the next month. The driver fits the Pololu A4988 pinout and comes with an TMC2130 - which supports the stallGuard2 functions! I can't wait to try that feature EDIT 2016-03-08: Here we go! EDIT 2016-03-08: At first I tried the "standalone"-configuration, to do so you have to solder a short on the little solder-jumper (SPI_MODE-Pin to GND). Works similar to the TMC2100 SSS: You don't need a Microcontroller

  8. Le plateau de verre peut être très légèrement bombé. et il existe aussi un phénomène de nutations des axes X et Y (Pasduclac si tu nous suis encore ! ^^)

  9. BINGO! En effet c'est bien en complément d'activité. Tu sera déjà bien content de te faire un petit billet de 100euros tout les mois dans l'impression 3D. Les gens trouvent ça cool mais reste assez distant. Ils sont curieux mais pas plus.Tu auras quelques demandes de devis et encore moins de commandes concrètes. Dans un business le mieux c'est de fidéliser le client or la nature même de l'impression 3D c'est le prototypage (petites séries voir pièce unique) et il n'y a pas foule de demande CONSTANTE à ce niveau là. C'est un business model assez dur à rentabiliser. Aprés si tu as déjà un

  10. You are being very paranoid. Just use the SD card, I have loads of viruses, and it still prints fine. Ultimaker is not running windows, you are not going to get a virus by accident. You will need to get a specific 3D printer virus, and i have not heard of that yet, and then you will also need to go to the exact place where that virus will be, and the chances of that are very small, unless youmagine or thing verse or any other stl providers get infected. Best thing is to just make your own stl and not download the free models if you can. You are worrying about nothing. And if you go to lots

  11. That microstructures video is completely awesome by the way.

  12. We already have that in the new Cura. We call it 'per object settings'.

  15. @nallath: There is a plugin for legacy Cura, it's called SwapAtZ and allows for changing the gcode at any height of the object from one configuration to the other. Anyway, we now get the 'per object settings' with the next Cura version which is quite a step forward. However, I think there should be a version one day where different configuration can be applied to different heights (yes, in about the same way as TweakAtZ works). The mount everest of the slicer engine will of course be a really dynamically calculated infill where e.g. an internal support structure / infill start from the walls

  16. The problem is solved. I had to change the steps/mm. Now my 3D printer is working just fine...except for the filament that gets stuck in the extruder. But i already ordered a new extruder. Exactly the same as the ultimaker 2. The one i'm using now is a J-head. Very poor quality. So with my new extruder everything has to work and when i receive it i finally will be able to print...in 2 colors (dual extruder). I'm so happy now. I almost worked a year at this project and now it's finally done. Anyway, thank you very much for your help!!

  17. At first i bought an Ultimaker 2 because i wanted to do something creative, i'm a software developer and i wanted something that combines IT and creativity, that's when i got interested in 3d printing. After some research i found that my best bet was to go for an Ultimaker 2, and i was right! I print a lot of unuseful stuff mainly for fun, figurines, vases, busts etc... I also have a project for Veterinary use that you can find here: https://www.facebook.com/3D2Vet For the moment we are testing external fixators for complicated bone surgeries, this is an example: This replaces Titanium

  18. MDF is not rigid material. You can use but i suggest you to use plywood. plexiglass or perpex is durable than mdf...

  20. Well past events like Makerfaire NYC and CES have seen some new releases. I have checked and Ultimaker isn't listed as a exhibitor at CES yet and last year there was a month or so warning about something new coming at makerfaire. But UM seem to be getting better at being Secret squirrel

  21. PLA can be really happy in water - I have had PLA parts (colorfabb PLA) in water for a year - no bad effect. I use PLA for plant pot trays and no ill effect - it is great stuff! James
