    UM2 for sale - the Netherlands

    Printer's sold! Thanks very much!
  2. Hi guys, I'm wondering where I can find the Ultimaker Original + lasercut files? They might be exactly the same as the Original (without the +) but can someone please confirm this? Thanks anyway, Michael

    UM2 for sale - the Netherlands

    Hi, The UM2 is still for sale. I live in the Hague (Den Haag in Dutch) so that's probably one of the most far away places from Germany... Anything I can do to convince you? Greetings, Michael
  4. Sorry I didn't reply within an hour and a half :oops: . Your PM was answered minutes ago.
  5. Hi guys, after a lot of thought and considering I decided to sell my Ultimaker 2. The machine was delivered in December 2013 and it works absolutely great! Price: €1.600 Shipping: not included in the above price. For more information and photos, please send a personal message. Thanks for reading. Michael

    Colorfabb's Woodfill 3mm

    PM found and replied.
  7. I decided to go with Youmagine only for my R2-D2 model because I also want to support the Ultimaker team and Youmagine. The amount of downloads and likes on Youmagine is nowhere close to Thingiverse but honestly I don't really care that much about that since I'm not considering making profit from my models. I noticed there's a "I printed one" button on Youmagine now. Perhaps it's been there for ages but honestly I just noticed it :-) Cool! One thing I would really recommend is a better method to just browse through the models. With only 9 models on one page just browsing around is not much fun.
  8. Hi, I'm selling my 750 gram spool of Colorfabb's Woodfill. It still has 749,9 grams on it. Reason for selling is it blocked my nozzle during the first centimeters of extrusion. It was a pain to solve this problem and I lost confidence in printing it. So if you feel confident printing with it or if you want to try it yourself this is a bargain. New spool on Colorfabb's site: €48,40 excl. shipping. My spool: €38,- excl. shipping. I'm in the Netherlands - the Hague. Regards, Michael

    Blocked nozzle

    Hmmmm, I feel a little uninformed here. Have I missed something or is this one of the 'things you should know'? On the Colorfabb's site it says 0,4mm nozzle size so that's either wrong of misleading. I'm not considering drilling my UM2's nozzle to a wider diameter for now. Too happy it's working fine now (and making awesome prints!). I think I'll sell my Woodfill spool (with 749,9 grams on it ;-)) so if anyone is interested, please PM me. I'm in the Netherlands.

    Blocked nozzle

    Hi there, thanks for the tips again. The easy method didn't work for me but after disassembling the print head and doing the trick (heating up, push PLA in, cooling down to 90 degrees) a few times worked for me. It was some work and since the Woodfill gave a lot of mess in the nozzle I had to do this trick for about 5 times to get rid off all the black sticky stuff. Happy it's printing again! :cool: If there are so many people encountering problems on clogging, I would advice the Ultimaker team to come up with the best solution and place a video of the recommended method on their site/ Youtube/ whatever. Or is there any available yet? Other question: Is printing in Woodfill difficult? As in: does it block the nozzle frequently? Perhaps my temperature setting for this material was wrong (230 degrees). What's a good temp for Woodfil?

    Blocked nozzle

    Hi there, after some initial problem I got some very, very nice prints from the Ultimaker 2! It finished some marathon prints last week resulting in a http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:164317 at 0,05mm. It looks awesome and the two pieces come together nicely. After these print I changed the material (Colorfabb's Woodfill). I wish I didn't... The material change was OK, material was flowing nicely without problems but during the first print, things went wrong. On the first layer I could see just a few normal lines but extrusion stopped pretty soon. The temperature was quite high at that moment (250) to see it the material gets through. I also choose a rather thick layerheight at 0,2mm. Now, no matter what material I try to print or at whatever temperature I select, nothing comes through the nozzle anymore. I tried to go back to the Loggerhead's color and also tried a new spool. That, like I expected, didn't give any good results. What's the best way to get rid of the nozzle jam?

    UM2 curved prints - solved

    This problem is now solved. The screws needed to be tightened and the pulley was rubbing the short belt. Two fails of the Ultimaker's assembly team in my opinion but I'm very happy it's working now! I've made some very nice prints so far but now my nozzle seems blocked...

    UM2 curved prints - solved

    I started a print tonight, same gcode, same machine, tightened screws and an XY acceleration of 3000mm/sec. It's printing fine so far. Fingers crossed.

    UM2 curved prints - solved

    Hi, thanks for the advice again! I've done a few other prints of which two succeeded and one fail due to this problem. I checked the belts again and also checked all screws. I must admit I missed one screw the first time! It was the screw in the pulley on the short belt of the X-axis which is a seperate pulley. The Y-axis pulley is a one-piece pulley so there's a difference which I didn't notice the first time. My bad... :oops: . It's tightened now. I also noticed some black 'sparks' on the bottom of the machine behind the cover. These seem to come from my belt since there were also a few on the motor itself. I moved the motor's pulley as far towards the motor as possible without it touching the motor. Furthermore the X-axis runs as free as the Y-axis when moved by hand. Tomorrow attempt nr. 3-4 to solve this nasty problem. PS: Where can I set the XY acceleration? :oops: Is that in Cura?
