  1. I have had my UM2 for a year now and can say without a doubt I love my machine. Once I got past the initial teething and upgraded the problem areas she prints beautifully. I am a C-5 quadriplegic with no finger function and I have no problems running and maintaining my machine on my own "for the most part". Oiling, leveling, changing filament, cold pulls, changing tips, (O-BLOCK), removing prints, cleaning the bed, support removal. This is a HUGE deal for me as it allows me to be creative and build adaptive equipment that brings me more independence. I love and want to thank the UM commu

  3. The next Ulti-Evening is coming up, with yet another educational and interactive theme. But this time, hosted by our very own Chris & Layla from our technical support team. What is it about? Post processing! It will be two workshops merged into one; - Vapor treating; making your prints shiny and dissolve layers while keeping most of the details. Even though I think we should appreciate 3D printing for what it is, and not try to replicate already existing manufacturing methods sometimes you don't need those layers. - Water Marbling; adding colour to your prints using water, paint a

  5. hmm I understand you get confused... 15.04 and lower are old (legacy) cura, they have dual extrusion. 15.06 and higher are new (beta) cura, with no support for Dual extrusion yet. I would be nice to have some sort of overview of changes, as for specific tasks sometimes old versions are better I believe (f.e 14.xx for spiralize printing), another example could be the changed order of outer/inner walls at some point in time etc....

  6. Yes, it's 1 / 5 respectively when not defined (same as what it is in the commented lines) Probably. But having an UtliController on one machine and this one on the other, I don't feel much difference.

  7. Do you usually have access to google without problems? If you could let me know what version of Cura and OS you want I'll see if I can get you a direct download link.

  10. My solution on the UM1 Those are 5mm. thick acrylic panels cut from the open source drawings to fit snugly into the printers open frame holes... The panels are held in place with magnets glued into little slots in the panel sides, and matching ones drilled into the edge of the printers frame... Top is not physically closed, but I have a crossflow fan blowing across the build area...

  11. What about browsing the commit log? This changelog ENCODER_PULSES_PER_STEP in the config file. By default one encoder pulse generates one unit step in the values. Difficult to find a good compromise there, if you increase it, you will have to turn a lot to make big changes... Also, ENCODER_STEPS_PER_MENU_ITEM relies on that one, so if you change the first, it will affect the menu browsing as well, so you need to tune both. Personally I wouldn't go there...

  14. Ja, da ist natürlich richtig. Mittlerweile bestelle ich seit ca. 1/2 Jahr regelmäßig auf der Aliexpress Plattform, bzw. generell bei Händlern in China oder per Ebay EGSP. Es handelt sich aber immer um Ersatzteile für Mechanik, Laptops, Computer, etc. Meist weil es dort deutlich günstiger ist, bzw. ich woanders die Sachen garnicht herbekomme (gerade für Computer). Es sind natürlich in aller Regel Spezialsachen, wie z.B. LED Konverter Kits oder ein Displaydeckel für einen Lenovo Laptop, etc. Da gibt es in dem Sinne keine nennenswerte Auswahl an Händlern. Bisher sind meine Erfahungen sehr gut

  15. This is my setup, I'm very pleased with it, absolutely needed to get any decent layer bonding in ABS. https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker2-top-cover-clips https://www.youmagine.com/designs/um2-minimalist-front-panel + I have my feeder motors outside the machine on the back. + I have a few connected smoke detectors in the house (better safe than sorry..)

  16. There should be a badge for that too This took an interesting angle. I'll see if we have a way to measure humidity in the office.

  17. Here my first results for light fixtures for the garden: I made them from transparent XT and I put a thin layer of Tamiya X22 transparent coating on the lamp to make sure that no water gets in. How good they will hold over time we will have to see but this is the best I could think of. Inside each lamp there is one Cree led which in this case it powered with a 300mA current source. I have a other design in the making where the same led will be powered at 1A. But before I go ahead on that I want to know how good the design is holding outside.

  18. I had some trouble in the beginning to get it configured correctly. This was my first time I even saw a Raspberry Pi! I had no knowledge of different Gcodes ("UltiGcode" & "RepRap" etc etc) and I struggled many hours for finding this settings in my Cura. After reading this feature was not yet implemented in the beta I switched to Cura 15.04.02 and got this first issue fixed. The 2nd issue I had with Octoprint was the default start gcode and end gcode was not working properly for me. I tested many gcodes I found on the internet and got one working for my configuration perfectly. Issue f
