    i guess 2 things (one is very functional, the other not quite so much (probaly borderline on some community guidelines, so feel free to remove it!)) just a pump action 4 shot airsoft 40mm grenade launcher, like you do... thats 1.6kg of PLA and 124 hours worth of printing, and that prototype V1 the CAD work, all done in sketchup (and only 2 of the 46 components were "bad" when it came to slicing, with sketchup's famouse holes) Comparison with a Tavor 21 (if you know how big one of them is!) Multiple internal components Multiple internal components and becuse that may be a bit too extreme, lets flip it back round to the more boring, a phone case. was (was) enjoying pokémon GO so made a phone case to reflect that joy. thankfully the phone case is still providing joy!

    Hallo, einen Link kann ich Dir leider nicht geben - ich hole das Öl bei uns im toom-Baumarkt. Die Flasche kostet 1,50€ (Feinmechaniköl harzfrei für Nähmaschinen, Schlösser usw.). Am besten kein Spray verwenden. Ich drucke zur Zeit recht viel und öle einmal die Woche. Ein Paar Tropfen auf ein Stück Küchenpapier und dann die Stangen leicht einreiben - weniger ist mehr! Der richtige Zeitpunkt ist sicher schwer zu finden. Wenn die Wagen so stark ruckeln, dass Du Wellen an senkrechten Wänden siehst, bist Du schon weit über die Zeit. Eigenartigerweise höre ich bei mir wenn es Zeit ist, dann rasselt oder schnarrt (das Geräusch lässt sich schwer beschreiben) auf langen, geraden Fahrten der Bowden in den Klemmen am Gewebeschlauch. Ein wenig Öl an die Führungsstangen und das Geräusch ist weg. Die Z-Achse (Gewindespindel) würde ich ein bis zweimal im Jahr einfetten (kein Öl). Wenn Du allerdings bei Retractions den Tisch mit bewegst (Z-Anheben vor Rückzug) wirst Du öfters fetten müssen. Wenn Du ABS druckst oder einen geschlossenen Bauraum hast, wirst Du aufgrund der höheren Innentemperatur ebenfalls kürze Intervalle haben. Mit etwas Gefühl merkt man auch beim manuellen Bewegen des Druckkopfes, ob die Führungen schwergängiger sind als sonst und etwas Öl vertragen könnten. Viele Grüße

    https://github.com/fieldOfView/OctoPrintPlugin There you go. It even supports camera view inside Cura

    Profiles is intentional, because profiles tend to set things that are not changable per mesh (eg; layer height). Changing settings inside a merge is possible. Try ctrl click to select object inside a merge. Can you explain that a bit more? Shift click. Panning is your friend.

    Yes there are other printers like Raise3d But the overall quality of the printers are no way near the UM. Its easy to wack dual extruders on a printer but its hard to make it work well and this is why UM stopped development on the UM2 because they wanted to keep the same print quality as a single extruder machine. Bigger print volume would be nice though.

    Fun with Polygons I discover right off the bat that Cura doesn't support concave polygons. Bummer. So the poly count went up from 4 to 60!

    Salut, Je prends le temps de répondre à ton post @lekid Merci pour ton accueil. Juste que la prochaine fois je prendrai ma voiture de rallye pour monter jusqu'à chez toi Le pb de l'imprimante était très original. En effet vu les test que l'on avaitt fait ensemble par conversation FB il paraissait clair que c'est le mosfet qui était défectueux. J'aurai du tout de même être plus étonné de voir que la led s'allumait tout de même. Car en effet le pb se situait dans le bornier à pince. C'est pourtant le genre de pièce très solide que je n'aurai pas soupçonné de pouvoir cassé dans l'utilisation que l'on en as. Je bosse sur une sorte de petit manuel rapide de diagnostique des pannes. J'espère vous en présenter une première version bientôt. ^^ en tout cas il faut arrêter de m'offrir des bouteilles de vin à chaque réparations car rien qu'avec le forum je vais bientôt pouvoir ouvrir une cave ^^ boujou

    @oscar-santana, i belive the exact quote by @nallath you quoted pretty much sums it up, Ultimaker does not make (and do not have any plans to make) delta printers and therefore they cannot commit a lot of resources into making every feature of Cura work with the specific requirements of delta printers. You can already slice with Cura and use it on your printer, you just cannot get a view with a circular bed and similar delta-only features. Ultimaker does already do put down a lot of work in making Cura work well for every cartesian machine (not limited to Ultimakers) which really is going above and beyond, and you could say that it is a quite strange decision business wise, since they effectively are doing a lot of free work for the competitors who just rebrand Cura and pretend it is their own software without supporting the development at all... (yes, i am primarily thinking about Wanhao) @nallath and most of the software team are usually very happy to answer questions if you would like to implement it yourself, you could even make a "delta-version" of Cura if you want, that is the beauty of open source :-)

    Please do. Or maybe make it possible to install as a "portable" version to be able to keep things separate. As someone who works as a support guy it's sometimes very very handy to have several versions installed to be able to test customer settings or guide them to where a particular setting is in the version they're running. Some people don't want to upgrade because everything is working perfect for them, others can't because of restrictions at the work place etc etc. On my work laptop I think I have about 20-30 versions installed

    Phénomène de relaxation des contraintes surement, comme le précise @sas-fgs il y a des chances pour incriminer un refroidissement non homogène, tu peux essayer de conserver plus longtemps la pièce dans ta chambre d'impression à la fin de l'impression avec une descente progressive de la tempèrature plateau en bricolant un end/gcode. Tu peux aussi essayer d'apporter moins de contrainte en diminuant ton remplissage mais la pièce sera moins solide... Pour ma part j'ai laissé tomber la plupart des filaments natifs pour me consacrer aux composites, ils ont une meilleure tenue et des performances méca supérieures. http://www.nanovia-technologies.com/les-petg.php ( avec un exemple d'impression en bas de page de notre star international @darkdvd ) http://www.nanovia-technologies.com/les-abs.php Le PETG n'est pas simple en impression mais pas insurmontable, je te guiderai. En plus c'est du filament de pays Un exemple de relaxation pour du PLA :

    As someone who is lucky enough to get information about these sorts of things early on, I should warn you. Don't get too excited about the new printer. Development went really well for the first few months, some really nice features were added, some that people have asked for, and some that no one had thought about yet. But due to some internal... struggles, and some fairly drastic changes in the management teams the project took a a bit of a turn. The R&D department were all pretty excited about the new printer and they put in a ton of work to make everything work quite well. The problem was that the new management didn't quite like how much time and money was invested and feared that production costs would cut into profits too much. So a decision was made to take a bit of a shortcut for final production. Makerbot was chosen as a silent partner and the Ultimaker 3 will just be a re-brand. Yes, that' a joke (just in case anyone was silly enough to believe a word of that )

    Hello Ultimaker Community, I received my UMO+ kit a couple of weeks ago and assembled it over the weekend. Overall, the assembly went very well, although it did take longer than I expected because I was being meticulous. I am new to personal 3D printers, but I have a number of years of experience with the "professional" systems at work. I changed jobs a couple of years ago and have not had ready access to a printer since then, so I finally broke down and got myself the UMO+ kit. I figured that by building it myself it will be easier to maintain and mod it in the future. I have been having a lot of fun with it impressing people with print quality. It even compared favorably to a print from a $trata$ys machine. My wife couldn't figure out why I bought it, but after I made a figurine or two for her, she now gets it . As I assembled the UMO+ kit, I noted a few things that might be useful for a future update of the assembly manual. Please note that these edits are mostly minor and I did not have any difficulty assembling the kit using the v3.0 manual. Sorry in advance for this long posting. Ultimaker Original Plus Assembly Manual v3.0 Notes: p.7: Fan pack does not include (1 ea) 1326 Warning sticker p.7: “Feeder pack” is called out in the manual, but it is labeled “Extruder Pack” on the zip-lock bag packaging. p.10: “Axle pack” is called out in the manual, but it is labeled “Axes Pack” on the box. p.14: There is no “Warning sticker” included in the kit to place on the back panel. p. 15: I needed to use a small hammer and a scrap piece of wood to set the bearings into the holes. There is no way this could have been done by hand as described in the manual. p.16: Fig.4 shows Front, Left and Right panels, but should show Front, Left and Back panels. p.19: Cable ducts are labeled “long” and “short” in the manual, but are labeled “front” and “back” on the zip-lock bag. p.23: (3 ea) 1214 Lock nut should be (7 ea), and no 1209 Hex nuts are needed. p.31: (12 ea) 1208 Hex nut should be (12 ea) 1209 Hex nut p.46: Figure 101 is incorrectly labeled as Figure 86. p.49: Quantity of 1028 Z linear shaft should be (2 ea), not (1 ea) p.55: No 1326 Warning sticker was included in my kit p.61: Step 3, “fronr” should be “front” p.62: Step 5.1.5-1: No warning sticker included in my kit p.70: “Feeder pack” is labeled “Extruder pack” on zip-lock bag p.71: “M6” nut, washers and cap nut should be “M8” p.93: 8.2.4 Sensors, Step 2: “black plug” is actually white, but the cable is black. May be better to call it “black cable” Additional Notes: Although the instructions say to hand tighten the PEEK isolator and brass tube to the heater block, I found that I needed to use a small wrench to tighten the connection a bit after a week or so of use. I was getting some PLA leakage that was leaving brown deposits and “boogers” on my prints until I figured out what was going on. Also, I don’t remember seeing anywhere in the instructions to place the glass plate on the heated bed. Although this may be obvious, for completeness it would be nice to add that step to the manual. Please take or leave these suggestions at your discretion. As I mentioned already, I had no real difficulty with the assembly, but these edits might help someone in the future. In general the v3.0 manual is very good. Also as mentioned above, my kit did not include the “warning stickers” to place on the print head and back panel as indication in the manual. Have these been eliminated from the kit, or were they just missing from mine? Best regards, Roger

    Always loved the concept of 3D printing but until last year also knew/thought it was too early in the technologies evolution to produce solid and accurate working parts that also had some kind of durability attached... although with the ability to just keep on producing exactly the same part perhaps durability is not so important anyway. Most reasonably priced basic spearguns are usually Delrin (DuPont) or a Polyoxymethylene derivative used in injection molded manufacturing... real high performance plastic. So... could I 3D print a speargun which might compare even at the most basic performance levels... well I thought I'd give it a try. Initial testing with PLA and ABS were encouraging but hardly successful... accuracy/shrinking/warping of prints was continual and hardly a new problem which seemed to doom my ambitious project to abject failure. Then carbon filament arrived... MK1 was a small and successfully tested speargun at the end of last year which hasn't yet caught any fish but that's besides the point... it was used 3 times and is still intact and has proved to be an extremely useful prototype. MK2 is being printed right now... To say I'm pleased so far halfway through the printing stage is an understatement... but the real 'working part' tests are still clearly yet to come! all handle parts have been printed with ColorFabb's XT-CF20 at various settings

    The right one? All kidding aside, Cura uses Marlin firmware. You can find the source on https://github.com/Ultimaker/UM2.1-Firmware/tree/UM2.1_JarJar
