  1. New to 3D printing, but not to modelling (experienced with Rhino, ZBrush, C4D, among others....). This, however was a bit of a new experiment for me. Printing my own brain from a 3D MRI dataset. Always wanted my brain on my desk..... This first one I sent to Shapeways to get printed through laser sintering. Expensive, so I only got it printed 80% of actual size (and hollow). Figured it would nice with lighting inside, and I couldn't resist putting the lightbulb over it - for when I want to signal I had a good idea! I now have a Ultimaker S5, so I printed the second one fu

  2. To print successfully ABS you need to cover the front of your printer and maybe also the top, to keep the air warm inside during the print. For adhesion, the UM adhesion sheets or Dimafix or 3DLac spray helps a lot.

  3. It seems you have an extrusion problem, so this can be speed, temperature, clogged nozzle, feeder, and a lot of more things. If you have printed successfully with these settings, then you can also check your hardware, feeder, nozzle, filament.

  4. Hey, great idea! Hallo, grossartige Idee! There s no way to niggle the whole time! Man(n) kann nicht die ganze Zeit nur Nörgeln! Time to show some positiv stuff! Es wird Zeit auch etwas Gutes zu berichten! The Picture shows a little park bench for H0 1:87. Das Bild zeigt eine kleine Parkbank für Modelleisenbahn H0. It was created with Lightwave, sliced with cura and printet with an UMO+. Die Bank wurde mit Lightwave modelliert, mit cura gesliced und auf einem UMO+ gedruckt.

  5. I'm very familiar with the "dadadadada" sound. It sounds horrible but the printer will not be damaged. It could be intermittent. Try homing 10 times. It could be a bad wire but more likely the switch is at the edge where sometimes it clicks/triggers and other times it doesn't. Push the head around towards the corner (back left) and listen for the limit switches to click. Do one at a time - so push the head to the left edge and to the rear edge separately. The X switch has two screws close together holding it on the top rear of the printer. Usually the fix is to ben

  6. If this is the effect you get (see photo), then it is lack of cooling indeed. The ruler shows mm (small lines) and cm (numbers). This is most notably when printing 100% filled models. My solution usually is: print multiple models at a time, or print sort of an "inverse" next to the real model, so the total amount of printing time per layer is always the same, and the time is long enough to provide good cooling. And print cool and slow. Using the option "minimum layer time" alone is not enough in my experience: then the filament sits longer in the nozzle, heats up more, and gets mor

    Quality Layer height: 0.1mm* Initial layer thickness: 0.3mm Bottom/top pattern: lines Skin perimeter line count: 0 Horizontal expansion: 0.04mm (when entering 0.04mm index, the 3D printer perceives the model as monolith, i.e. as having no hidden layers). *Layer Height 0.1mm is recommended for a better quality for the printed model. However, the printing time will double. Speed setups: Infill speed: 50mm/s Outer shell speed : 30mm/s Inner shell speed: 20mm/s Top/bottom speed: 20mm/s Support speed: 50mm/s Travel speed: 150mm/s Skirt speed: 30mm/s Amount of slower layers: 4 Infill
