  1. Now here I am with a band to play Some sounds unheard coming out your way You see, I rhyme by myself in time To call attention to this joke sublime It'll be about something dear to me My Ul-ti-maker that so dutifully Crafts my thought into phys-i-cal -ity, my joy my idolatry Now if the rhyme is not found in time Too bad, I'm new at this sort of thang I'm here to tell you about one small thing a way to improve Cura and the thing I mean to say is the following Booger Syndrome is the forking thing You see, I'm keen to 3D printing Yet my prin-ter is somehow lack-ack-ing The wis-dom

  2. Hey guys! So this is a project that I'm doing for my 3D printing class in college. All of the pieces were printed on my Ultimaker 3 Extended. Model was created by me based off reference material that was provided from Dutch Props. Big thanks to him! It's a total of 8 pieces and was modeled around a 3D scan of my head. Currently working on finishing the pieces and lots of sanding! Seams are filled with Apoxie Sculpt and then sanded smooth. Thanks for checking this out.

  3. It's working! It needs the old style .s3g file. Oh, yes. I am NOT a robot.

  4. Yeah @fbrc8-erin, it definitely is the bed-levelling after all. As I wrote in my last reply, I had given the idea that the sound lasted throughout the entire print, which was not the case. Apologies for the confusion, but thanks for asking! I'm sorry, it looks like I missed the last response. I was reading the earlier one where you'd mentioned the clicking being ongoing. Glad to hear it's working well! Your helpful responses make up big time for being sorry about having missed a detail Thanks again!

  5. I enjoy making reproductions of sci-fi props. This one is the "Global Link" smartphone from the TV show Earth: Final Conflict (which aired a decade before the first iPhone). With convenient belt clip! The show had a few versions of the prop (opened to various degrees, closed, and a "hero" version which used an accordion arm and something like a miniature window roller shade to show the screen extruding from a case apparently too small to contain it). Still sourcing the parts for a hero version, but I could at least make the static versions. Modeled in Blender, based on screenshots fro

  6. Buenas a todos, Me presento, soy Carlos Capel, uno de los técnicos oficiales de Ultimaker en Tr3sdland, algunos ya me conocéis, como Sebastián, que coincidimos en la presentación de Ultimaker 3 en Madrid, un placer poder haber hablado con él, es un gran experto de Ultimaker. Me pongo a vuestra disposición, concretamente en esta zona en Castellano, ya que hay mucha gente en el mundo que habla nuestra lengua y es una buena oportunidad para que se formulen preguntas, dudas que se tienen con la máquina, y entre todos hagamos un gran grupo y se puedan solucionar las incidencias lo antes posible,

  7. Bonjour tout le monde ! Petit post depuis un bout de temps puisque je cherche à peaufiner mes impressions avec le nozzle de 1mm. Le but du jeu, c'est d'avoir des objets hyper clean mais avec des belles grosses lignes (qu'on remarque le côté impression 3D au premier coup d'oeil, du même type que Metaform Tools). Les impressions que j'ai réalisé jusque là ne sont pas si mal, mais il me manque le petit coup de génie qui les rend parfaites. Je possède Simplify3D. 1- J'ai donc commencé à bidouiller un peu les settings, dont voici le détail : 2- Voici l'objet, avec ces réglages là : M

  8. You should try and see if you can get Ultimaker firmware to run on it. That would be a good joke

  9. Hi forum, Has anyone on here tried this upgrade kit - did a quick search here for threads but nothing obvious? "]http://e3d-online.com/Ultimaker-Extrusion-Upgrade-Kit[/url] If so, is it any good and potentially, would it be an alternative to the UM2+ upgrade kit? Just interested as its a cheaper upgrade option Cheers all Franc

  10. I also recommend Fusion 360. It's one of my go to programs for designing and modeling. With all the content that AutoDesk is pushing out on it, just check out Fusion's youtube channel for previous webinars and awesome tutorial videos, it's easy to get started with it. Fusion is awesome for collaborating, files are stored in the cloud (can be a + or -), but you can download certain files to your machine, the software is the same for Windows and Mac (no Fusion for Mac) and the UI is the exact same (big plus for me), and the user community is fantastic to work with! Should you want to get into mo

  12. That's what it's all about! We print lots of parts, only to tweak, redesign and print again. We have in-house manufacturing, but I have found that the printer doesn't gripe about going from V1 to V1.1...V1.2...V1.3 like an operator does. It may take longer than machining, but the important thing is it takes longer all by itself without an operator watching it and doesn't take longer in the middle of my production flow!

  13. no, I don't think so, You can always check when exporting it and import it into Cura and see if there is something in that area. ps: just checked it: it is ok.

  14. What reemaj3D says is true and might be the cause but in this case I think it is more likely your part is simply too thin. The walls need to be at least 2X of the line width. That was a screen shot of cura 2.3.1. You have to play around more with cura. There are features all over the place (left side of screen, right side, gears, menu system). It's good to learn your way around cura before using it to slice something.

  16. Well this is bizarre - following on from Makairsjop's post I renamed the Cura.app file in Applications and ran it from the Applications folder (rather than the taskbar menu) and this time it worked. Renamed it back and it still works... Deleted and reinstall and it still works!... No idea why this would be any different to only deleting and reinstalling, but something obviously has happened to fix the crash.

  18. OK... finally, heres the way I do things now mostly, I rarely dip now. Dipping may give slightly better results, but this method is much faster, safer, and is ok for quick jobs. a good even 45ish second soak is probably better, but this method warps less and is less prone to cracking if youre carefull. also if you have large models you dont need to worry about having a container full of chemicals to dip it in. if you need it smoother, then keep applying more ethyl or acetone to emulate the soak.
