  1. Hi, Installed Bondtech extruder today on my UMO.....and its insane Never had prints look this good, so either the orginal extruder never was assembled good enough or this Bondtech is just so much more accurate. Every first layer is picture perfect and PLA prints at lower temps and faster speed. Impressed again with my Ultimaker Ultimaker should make a deal with Bondtech and have it as standard extruder.

  3. Great initiative! I've added 3 songs... Music is quite important for me so I could easily 100s of songs that mean a lot to me. But I've added these 3 ones as a start.

  5. The circuitry for the heated bed and for each of the two nozzle heater circuits is identical. I looked at the actual traces inside and on the board and the mosfet switches are also identical. The heated bed is I believe about 100W or about 4 amps. So I don't think you should go over 4 amps. But you are talking about <4 amps so the electronics will be fine - it's just the power supply that you need to increase. Also if you don't use the heated bed and the nozzle at the same time it should also be fine. So for example if you are only heating the bed to 60C then I think the supply might be okay as is as long as you don't heat the nozzle until the bed is completely warmed up. Also note that there is a firmware setting where you can limit power to the nozzle. For example you can say 50% power (128) is max power to ever apply to the nozzle. This will be pulsed but the power supply can go FAR over it's normal limit during the pulses and will be fine as long as total power draw doesn't exceed it's spec for a longer duration e.g. 1 second. @coen? Is that correct? heated bed about 4 amps?

  6. Got a good team ultimaker convo going on here Even with PVA it would be hard as you wonld be able to melt the PVA in the center. It all can b printed as one piece but the center sphere may cause an issue for the top piece. It will start to print it in mid air and will stick to others. The rest will stick a bit but you could free it up with a knife. As the gap is quite big you will need layer heights of around 0.2 or more and will need that ignore small z gaps enabled. Printed at 30mm/sec and as cold as you can it should work.

  8. G-code is a language in which people tell computerized machine tools how to make G-code is a language in which people tell computerized machine tools how to make something. The "how" is defined by instructions on where to move, how fast to move, and what path to move. The most common situation is that, within a machine tool, a cutting tool is moved according to these instructions through a toolpath and cuts away material to leave only the finished workpiece. The same concept also extends to noncutting tools such as forming or burnishing tools, photoplotting, additive methods such as 3D printing, and measuring instruments. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G-code

  9. Guys, I usually store my spare filaments and also all the samples I got in a lock&lock container with a big bag (0,5kg) of Silica gel. Nevertheless I found the snapping issue also on this "correctly" stored filaments right in the container e.g. at natural, white or yellow PLA samples from Colorfabb (app. 1 year old). From my point of view it looks that the part of the filament which got in touch with the silica bag got tried out and got brittle too... What do you think about it?

  10. Voici un de mes projet que je partage avec vous. la contrainte: fixer un petit haut parleur qui n'est pas du tout adapté par son mode de fixation d'origine à une pose dans un autocar. prise de mesure, dessin, impression en Colorfabb HT noir buse 0.8mm couche 0.2mm Un trou à la scie cloche de 70mm et trois vis à métaux plus tard: Sur les pièces finales il faut ajouter un petit ponçage et 4 couches de plastidip en spray ^^

  12. Thank you guys for visiting this page. For caring about the forum and being involved with Ultimaker. In front of you is the fruit of your collected feedback and various personal meetings with some involved community members. Hopefully, to your liking. Below you can find a list of what will be up next, and near the end of this post you can find the visuals. Depending on size, some of these points will gradually be implemented. Others will be emphasized. We are probably looking at a few weeks for the entire list. Upcoming improvements New wireframe with improved information density New setup for subcategories (we're aiming at max. 3-4 subcategories for every main category) Collapsable header, optional in your profile. Read/unread tracking Improved notifications Logged in users will automatically land at the forum, new (non logged in users) will land at the community dashboard Show which users like a topic or print Better search Thumbnail option when inserting images (full screen when clicked on) Email notifications Live filters, no page refresh More replies shown in a topic detail page (20-25 instead of 10) Speed optimizations (we're moving the database first, then the entire website to a new server, and then we will look into optimizing the website itself) Private forum sections for hardware and software beta testers Finalize and optimize gamification, including proper communication on how it works Many minor frontend and backend improvements Research: (note: this is yet to be determined. The above items are upcoming features) poll feature, chat feature, migrate likes from old forum topics, migrate topics users were following from the old forum (both categories and topics) and migrating user galleries Upcoming improvements made visuallyWithout further ado: Below you can find some improvements shown visually. The main focus here are improvements on the category page, topic overview pages and topic detail pages. Click on the image to view it in full size. If you have any questions or feedback, please let us know in the replies. Category pageYou can easily switch between 2 views, the category page or a topic overview page by clicking Category or Topic.The category page is customizable. You have the option to change in which order different main categories are offered to you, and you can change the amount of topics displayed for each sub category. There's even the option to reduce it to zero, so the entire sub category collapses. You can also expands or collapse an entire main category live, by clicking + or -. Topic overviewsThis view also shows which topics are unread, indicated by the blue bar on the left and X unread to the right. You have different options to create filters, and you can save your favorite filter for easy access. On the far right you see information regarding the latest activity, whether or not you follow this topic. If your own avatar is shown it means you have contributed to this topic in the past. The second visual shows the same view ranked on questions, in a specific sub category. Topic detailThese visuals show the new topic detail pages, improved navigation and buttons. Notice that a users profile also show their location and hardware. Visual 2 shows a topic detail page with unread replies. Visual 3 shows the unread reply notice to the top of your screen. A user will land here after clicking on '20 unread' on a topic overview page. Thank you for reading and being involved! We are very excited about this. What do you think?
