  1. Hello, I'm Marco and am 45 years. I started at Ultimaker in December 2015, so almost 2 years already, as a senior software engineer. At this moment I'm one of the DevOps working on the Firmware of the UM3 and to improve all aspects (software, procedures, little bit hardware ) that come with it. And I'm learning more every day! Having an interest in electronics (automating trains H0, Domotica), gaming (MMOs mostly), listening to music (trying to make some with an electrical guitar), watching movies / reading books (mostly sf) and naturally programming keeps me a busy bee.

  2. An original birthday present, a mold made of the Ultimaker icon and filled with chocolate! Very delicious

  3. If you need plenty of cooling you can also take a look at the centrifugal fanduct by @gudo https://www.youmagine.com/designs/um2-centrifugal-fans-duct I have used it for 6 months and could not be happier...printed in PLA and no major issues with heat since the part closest to the nozzle is a piece of aluminium sheet from a can. You need to buy new fans though since it uses blower fans and not the ones that comes with the printer.

  4. V4 Version update 24th August The original idea didn't work, but all the Firmware changes (most of them) do work with this (I think final) version V4 that places the Endstop on the bottom. This mod make's you loose 10mm of Z print area, but for me it's worth. You will need this printed part to hold the endstop on the bottom https://www.youmagine.com/designs/new-z-endstop-limit-location-for-calibration-a-la-um2-on-umo'>https://www.youmagine.com/designs/new-z-endstop-limit-location-for-calibration-a-la-um2-on-umo'>https://www.youmagine.com/designs/new-z-endstop-limit-location-

  5. I don't know if you have had much success since posting this but I also have a UM 2+ and have recently started printing midnight NinjaFlex and have had great results. It gave me a lot of issues at first with the extruder but once I cleaned out my nozzle using the atomic method and rubbed a few drops of sewing machine oil on the first foot of filament it has worked nicely. Once the filament has been inserted they suggest heating your nozzle and allowing the filament to come out before starting any print to make sure it comes out nicely which I also do. If anyone has any questions feel free to P

  6. I don't like the way it is explained in the manual, it is a source of trouble... This is what I recommend: Screw the nozzle in the heater bloc, but NOT flush against the heater bloc -- leave approx. a 1mm gap Screw the brass pipe until it reaches the nozzle -- do not apply excessive force as it is fragile Now tight the nozzle against the brass pipe with a wrench. You don't have to over-tighten it, 0.5 Nm should be enough. At the end there still should be a gap between the nozzle and the block, if you are tightening against the bloc you will have leaks! Optional, but recommended: repea

  7. Hé, il a "juste" de la sous-extrusion ! Je propose la solution économique, @snow13710 peut peut-être se faire aider...

  8. This is one of the best upgrades I have put on my UMO+ so far...after switching to the UM2 printhead. It just works...without hazzle...and with flexible filaments. I even managed to use up all of the "crappy" Ultimaker filament that came with my printer (the faulty batch that snaps as soon as you look at it)

  9. A little known fact about @ghostkeeper is that he apparently does not need sleep, regularly answering bug reports on github until 2:30 in the morning.

  10. @neotko I am not sure bed size does matter. UMO+ and UM2 have AFAIK the same bed size in in the firmware. I always set the real printable area in the slicer (Which doesn't mean we can't have something in the firmware -- in particular for the Z if you have a really low Z end-stop) X/Y end-stops makes definitely sense, we already have Z... I'll add that to the list (together with temp sensor 'calibration') -- ETA probably not before end September...
