  1. Alright, to answer my own question - it seems those values were pretty out of whack. I installed a 35W heater and it heated up too fast and tripped some kind of overheat protection. To solve the issue I first set the PID to 0: M301 P0.00 I0.00 D0.00 And then ran PID Autotune again: M303 S150 This gave me these values - here is the difference: Old: New: When finished I stored the parameters in EEPROM. Careful with this since everything that was changed will be saved - so don't fiddle with anything else while PID Autotuning! M500

  3. Don't beat yourself up over it, it takes practice Out of curiosity, why did you choose Blender? Were you already familiar with it? I only chose it because I found a YouTube tutorial showing how to do what I was looking to do using Blender. Is there another program that is better, or easier to use? There really is no single perfect program -- each one prioritizes different aspects of the modeling world, be it printing, animation, architecture, etc.. Finding the right one for your needs and learning style will likely be a matter of trial-and-error. There's a pretty extensive list here (scroll down a bit). Finding some beginner tutorials for any program you choose will go a long way. I've mentioned it earlier, but because it's not on the above list, I'll mention that I'm partial to Rhino. I found the basics pretty easy to master, but the program can handle quite a bit of complexity, and there are numerous plugins available to further enhance the experience. I use my printer primarily for architectural purposes and am rarely working on "organic"-looking objects, which seems to be more Blender's specialty. It's not free, but there is a trial. Certainly give Blender a go -- don't think in any way I'm trying to sway you one way or another -- but if you find it frustrating, perhaps try another program. All of these applications are going to have a learning curve for a modeling beginner, but life is too short to get frustrated by software that doesn't serve your purposes!

  5. Hey no problem. I won't be at home for the next 3 hours, I'll do it when I am home. But as I know there forums, someone else will beat me to it for sure

  6. Hallo Edel, vll. hilft Dir das weiter: http://support.3dverkstan.se/article/23-a-visual-ultimaker-troubleshooting-guide Schau Dir mal den Punkt "Stringing" an. Wahrscheinlich musst Du mehrere Parameter ändern, Drucktemp. , Travelspeed, Retraction, Materialflow.... Die Werte sind evtl. auch von Filament zu Filament unterschiedlich, falls der Fehler bei Dir erst seit kurzem auftritt. Grüße

  7. Hi Hregfroop, thanks for the news on your developments. I found a research paper on printing with PEEK which, while it uses a different printer than the Ultimaker 2, is very informative on different settings and results of those, you might find it interesting: https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Shoufeng_Yang/publication/283270065_Extrusion-based_additive_manufacturing_of_PEEK_for_biomedical_applications/links/562fbdbf08aefb4c6cb9ceba.pdf?origin=publication_list All the best, Mike

  8. Bonjour, La machine n'est plus à vendre, je vais profiter de la semaine de noël pendant laquelle mes clients sont en vacances pour effectuer la maintenance. Et puis des acheteurs qui osent proposer 1 200€ TTC !!!! qu'ils passent leur chemin. Achat d'un kit Olson au passage pour améliorer celle-ci. Cordialement.

  10. Maybe you should just let him do all the donkey work, get it into production etc etc... if that ever happens, and then just agree on a 60% commission rate

  12. You have to change the nozzle size *and* the shell width because the shell width must always be a multiple of the nozzle size. Although with the .8mm nozzle I usually just do one pass (.8 shell) and with the .4mm nozzle I usually do .8mm shell also (two passes). But if I switch to .6mm then I would likely pick .6mm wall or 1.2mm if it needs to withstand severe forces (people standing on it).
