  1. I cannot confirm nor deny the development of new electronics with better stepper drivers.

  2. Hi gang, we are working to expand YouMagine's collaboration capabilities and have released a new feature called "Issues". If it reminds you of GitHub's issues feature, then you are just about right! Issues Issues are focused discussion threads meant to structure and coordinate tasks and requests. Authors are informed about new issues via email and they can comment on issues and close them when they are done. This way discussions are formed around specific topics which do not end up in the catch-all comments section. Here is the link to a project from the screenshot: https://www.yo

  4. That's true, that part wasn't fair. I know you guys care @sandervg and put a lot of effort on pushing stuff to get done. Maybe we, the community, could push also UM forward by making ports of the um2 to other boards, that could show if that's interesting for the consumer modder base, and might do, juat like olsson block did, move UM towards a more modern board on a shorter time span. I just think that this is a real issue, umo+ share the same board, and since is the hackers-delight (IMO) it really closes some opportunities for more innovation and cool stuff that could be developed with them

  5. The materials team isn't quite done with the profiles, so they aren't there yet. Another thing is that both extruders must have the same quality, as quality defines the layer height (which must be the same). So if one extruder only supports draft, the other is also limited to draft (or draft like) quality. Because I nagged for the bottom layer pattern I noticed that quite a few models print a lot better (less warp) if you put bottom layer to Concentric. I've already added a feature to 2.6 to invert the zoom direction. I think the zoom in mouse direction has a good shot at being i

  7. Fair enough, I guess you dont want it bumping into your hands if you cant get them out in time. And If you want a real good print then, true, it is best not to interfere (I try my best not to!). The less you bother the printer mid print, the less chance of error! you could always try printing slower or getting some long pincers to grab bits and bobs if you want. I tend to know Ive done good on my part, and hope the printer does good on its part. 9 times out of 10 its all good, even if it goes wrong! I usually print 35mm or 50, so not too fast. but my result are good in my opinion. And yes

  8. This is a fractal I found (I don't know if you can 'make' a fractal deterministically). I used Incendia to make it. I am showing it because way back when I was studying Cura before getting the printer, I posted a screenshot and it was noted to be a difficult print. So, it came out fine and I credit the printer. If any of you have read the 'Noobverse' Posts, you will see just how much of a noob I really am. File render: Printed piece (painted) without flash: and with flash: Printed in Ultimaker Nylon (Transparent) and painted with a layer of Krylon base then oils and gold model paint

  9. I have received today a new led strip. Thanks @SandervG and Ultimaker. I always have to contact Ultimaker directly ...

  10. 20% machines does not only sound nice, it is necessary for a healthy future of Ultimaker. Developments in Cura cost money, so does maintaining our community platform and the service we provide to you, our customers. I don't think the statement 'not everyone hacks, so who cares' is completely fair. Decisions have to be made with a lot of metrics taken into account. You are one of them (my favorite one), but not the only one. Having to choose one, does not automatically discredit the other option. Cost is always a factor to respect. We're sorry if it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Hopef

  11. I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with the 3.6 release. It would help, if you would perform the update once more, and if / when things go sour again with the WiFi or NFC perform a couple of steps to maybe pinpoint the issues: If the NFC stops working, can you send screenshots of the NFC diagnostic screens. These can be found under System -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> NFC spool holder test and NFC reader test When the WiFi stops working, a screen shot of the network connection screen. This can be found under System -> Network -> Connection Status And the logs,

  12. The UM3 does not have power measurement electronics. So everything the printer can tell you is indirect. The temperature graph (http://[ip]/temperature.html ) does show the amount of PWM output it directs to the bed. The heated bed is the main power usage. So power usage of the printer is pretty much directly related to the heated bed temperature. At 60deg (PLA temperature) the bed is at 40% power on average. With the bed being around 150W, this is ~60W for the bed. The rest of the machine is using about 60W as well, for rest of the electronics and hotends. So the usage for PLA/PVA printing

  13. I suppose moving to a less populated, and hopefully modern (32 microsteps, LESS noisy) but ofc more expensive, is out of the question? I mean, I think is about time, at least I fell it that way. Specially with a 320€ board that, OFC users know that it works and keeps working, but is there at least any investigation around that area? For what you say it seems like it could take easily 2 years for a new stepper chip to be introduced, if ever. Also I honestly think is a bad decision. 20% of more machines sure sounds nice, but also, it will leave a bad taste on the user base, and that user base i

  15. This is basic underextrusion. Probably by about 50%. The extruder is extruding half as much material as needed to close the gaps. You could try cutting the speed by about 50% in which case maybe the extruder can keep up. You can do this from the tune menu on a UMO. It could be that your feeder tension isn't tight enough. Try compressing the umo spring to at least 11mm when the feeder is closed. It could be that you need to print a little hotter. What is your layer height, print speed, and temperature? Telling me these 3 things (I assume you have a standard 0.4mm nozzle) will let me kn

  16. Something big is coming!!! J'ai fais un petit test pour vérifier les dimensions et les détails d'une seule pièce ce weekend et c'est convenable C'est une modé que j'avais faite il y a déjà un moment et je me suis dis pourquoi pas passer au découpage et impression Pour l'instant je ne peux pas en dire plus mais voici juste une partie de la future impression qui fera environ 180cm * 34cm * 5cm Avec prise en main Test réalisé avec PLA Linen de Biofila / buse de 0.5 / 1.5cm de contour / Température Buse 220° et bed 60° / Vitesse 40mm/s / Epaisseur de couches à 0.1 / Pas de remplissage

  17. A small update, we are doing a lot (A LOT) of testing to optimize every single part, from print time to assembly to tutorial videos. Is quite a lot of work, but so far we are on a really good point print quality. Ofc like any beta testing we found stuff to improve. Right now we have 3 versions and we are testing every single part as much as we can. Basically from the first design to the new we had 5 versions, and atm the last 3 versions are under stress testing. Also please, if someone has a REALLY difficult print, something that requieres finesse and precision, I would like to print it and

  18. Hmm... A thought: Cura (2.3.1) has a Fuzzy option in the experimental settings. I assume it is in 2.4 as well. I wonder how Fuzzy would look for light diffracting? That might also give you interesting results for your project. Anyway, the thought just occurred to me. Hope it is useful.
