  1. Is it possible to add a way to search within a thread? I like to search within a long thread before posting something, but I don't like to click through 49 pages to check every page. (As I would have to do in this thread, to see if someone already asked for this.)

  2. I think the answer is no since the seach can't even perform the most basic of trivial searches yet (I think they are working on this). But Have no fear there is an easy way to do this with google. Use the site: command on the google search line and paste the post's URL in front (no spaces) then Leave a space and type in your search term. Works like a charm.

  3. I had this happen (the freeze) the other day, luckily I was standing near it to realise. It stopped moving but everything else was still going, it continued extruding etc. I turned it off and rehomed it. Fortunately it was at the end of the print so I only had a bit of filament to clean up. Could have been a lot worse I imagine. I've also had it happen where the dial has become unresponsive, no error issues though. The display also flickers at times and the machine likes to reboot itself when I'm selecting a print/tuning something. I've been in contact with the company I purchased it from, as

  4. Si quieres ver si el i2k está bien colocado, haz un atomic, saca el cabezal y con un movil (por q es más fácil más que nada) mira como se quiere queda la instalación y mira que todo esté sin huecos (vamos, un sándwich). Yo uso un separador con rosca que diseñó anders, no lo subió a youmagine pero funciona genial. Si usas un espaciador ten en cuenta que salvo que tu coupler esté recortado 1mm, necesitaras un espaciador 1mm más corto. Yo rl que tengo 3dsolex me lo hizo con 1mm de menos altura pra combinar con el i2k.

  5. When reading 3D-printing forums, and based on my own experience, the problems that do arise most in 3D-printing are related to: - underextrusion due to teflon coupler worn out, - underextrusion due to filament wound too stiff (works like a spring) and its bending radius being too narrow (high friction in bowden tube and nozzle), - temperature too low or too high for a given filament or model, - speed too low or too high, - dirty nozzles, - cheap filament with varying diameter or included debris, - bonding problems of model to build plate, - build plate incorrectly leveled, - etc. I d

  6. Yes. But I built it, so my vote doesn't count

  7. Never tried brassfill on the UM2 as i think it's an experimental material which kind of sticks to teflon if i remember well. ColorFabb HT is not carbon filled, if you want carbon filled it's the XT-CF20 (and indeed you need a stainless steel nozzle for that). ColorFabb HT clear looks interesting as you can print transparent things with it. SemiFlex is ok for the UM2, ninja flex can be printed but it's really not easy at all.

  8. I'm a fan of Colorfabb also, but specially there PLA's .. Easy is relative... yes the nGen is nice, I like it for small statues and stuff, but for bigger practical parts it's not so easy as it shrinks a lot more than PLA (I think more like ABS) so for bigger parts that can be an issue (if I have to deal with it anyhow I just use ABS) Also XT, I just stopped using it, had to much issues with layer bonding and the parts getting brittle. If I need a part to withstand a higher temperature I just use ABS. Speaking of higher temperature, the more interesting material is Biofilla PLA-tec (http://w

  10. Updated design, no need for screws anymore. Just use a piece of 2.85 mm filament instead. Download the design: urobot_2hh_x1.25.stl Improvements: 100% plastic: using piece of filament instead of M3 screw Increased weight of feed & longer toes Increased lower body weight Decreased upper body weight Scale: 1.25 Increased walking angle: around 10 degrees

  11. Writing to .3mf should do this. We only support the basics of .3mf right now, but I expect that this will be expanded in the future. There is no voting system and there probably won't be one either. Requesting features is always possible and anyone is free to work on features if they feel like it.

  12. Every printer requires fiddling around with according to each material, so i'm not sure what you're on about there, the day when you just put ANY material into a printer and click go is not here yet. Its like saying you want to cook all meals at the same temperature for the same amount of time, yet some foods take longer to cook than others, or you want your car to run on any type of fuel you put in it. And then complaining because Ultimaker does not tell you how to use other manufacturers filament and blaming them for dishonesty, is a bit silly, they dont make the filament, its an option for
