  1. 30 euros... and some one got a great deal today
  2. Hi guys. Im clearing out my workshop a little and have 3 bags full of great hotend stuff for ultimaker 2. All the parts are either never been used OR a tiny bit used... so no big wear.. Have a look at the photo. Id be happy if I could get 40 euros plus 5 euros post with paypal for the lot Im selling this as a lot.. so no individual parts... Please shoot me a quick email if you want this. ian.spring@gmail.com Thanks and have a nice day. Ian
  3. third question. Is that a normal SD card or micro SD ? Which direction does the SD go in ? which side up ? Thanks. Ian
  4. second question. If I want to update to the latest firmware. Can I connect my ultimaker 3 to cura using a USB cable and transfer the new firmware update that way. I dont think the WIFI in my office is very stable... Ian
  5. Thank you. At the monent my screen is totally blank.. a complete BRICKED ultimaker When I setup my SD card this evening with all the files. Will I just (insert SD card) then turn on the printer and it will automatically boot from the SD card and so allow me to reboot from the sd card. I hope so.... Ian
  6. Hi guys. I just took off the covers of the electronincs. The lights are glowing but nothing is coming up on the screen. I can also not connect using Cura. It does not see the printer. Is there a way to transfer a firmware flash using a us cable between my latopt and printer ? I really need my printer back running today for work.... Thanks. Ian
  7. Good morning guys. My ultimaker 3 extended is connected with the wifi in my office. This morning came the message I could update the firmware to the latest version. Took 10 minutes to download and then the printer restarted. With the ultimaker logo on the screen, the screen froze and I could not get any response... So I turned off the printer and turned it back on. Now the screen does not turn on.. no lights come one. It looks like my beautiful ultimaker 3 is dead.... How can I do a hard reset of the system ? Maybe the firmware update with wifi was not 100% perfect and screwed
  8. its always lovely to see such a beautiful clean print... and i love the color Ian
  9. Thank you. I think this maybe is the better option than Nylon. Im always worried about parts losing their form and rigidity after being exposed to a lot of moisture and water. Thanks for your help guys. Ian
  10. OK thank you. Little question or 2 actually. Is Nylon only available in black ? and is it a problem if the Nylon piece gets wet or is exposed to moisture for long periods of time. Would it become swollen ? or soft ? Thank you. Ian
  11. Hi guys. I was looking at a foot socket that was printed with a FDM printer recently. The guys told me that the material was not ABS and PLA but was very sturdy and also a normal FDM printer material that is only available in black. Here is a photo. What do you guys think this could be ? Id like to know as Id like to try and print something similiar with my ultimaker 3. The material needs to be good with shock and also a little bit of flex. Any ideas what this stuff is ? Thanks guys. Ian
  12. Hi. Its lovely to see you here How are you also doing ? Im doing fine thanks. Became a daddy this year :)a beautiful little girl Im a very proud daddy and husband.. And my work is now creating fantastic medical products using 3d print technology. Which I love because I see men and women and kids running and walking better because of my work Best wishes and have a lovely day. Ian
  13. Hi Sander. Im setting up a team of really talented people to create the best medical products suited for 3d printing technology. To start with we have created really really cool foot, hand and head orthesen using 3d scan and model systems. Delivering the end product in an array of different materials and using an array of 3d print processes. We already have our products in the field and are expanding and making our designs and systems even better for the end user (patient) Its a fantastic growing market to be involved in And its also great to see a real use of 3d print technology t
  14. Hi Sander. Im good thank you. Working away making 3d printed medical products Its great making products that directly help people. We also are big fans of using our ultimaker 3 in our workshop for testing new designs and parts. Maybe it could be a cool case study for you guys at ultimaker ? Hope your also well. Best wishes. Ian
  15. Morning guys. I did a presentation about 3d printinging medical products (my job ) Its in... my version of german.. so I hope you can understand it a bit hehe Enjoy. Ian
  16. Thanks guys ! I tried FreeCad and it did work converting my STL to STEP. But Little Problem... all exported STEP files are between 2 and 3 times the size of the original STL. So STL files that were 30MB are coming out at almost 100MB STEPs. Im a Little surprised how tricky it is to move between STL and STEP.. Ill Keep trying the few new ideas. Thanks guys. Have a great Weekend. Ian
  17. thanks. ill give it a Chance. thank you. Ian
  18. Hi guys. I have a Little question. I have some normal 3D stl files at home. But I Need to have them as step data files. Is there an easy free way to do this ? Is it a tricky busy to comvert from stl to step ? Also is there an Option to simplify my stl or step files ? simpler mesh ? Thanks a lot. Ian
  19. Morning guys. Little question ? The last 3 days I was getting professional training in special design software for medical products. At the end of the third day, I told the teacher guy that I was a big fan of ultimaker and I had years of great fun and experiences with them. He told me something weird... he said enjoy ultimaker now because... now ultimaker has been sold to 3dsystems they will gradually close up all the open source community driven things... eeekkk :( Is it true that ultimaker was sold to 3dsystems ? Ian
  20. Hello. I find your idea very simple and clever. Can this design only hold one type of camera ? I would love to see a typical photo taken in your system.. could you show us something ? How the camera lenese focuse on two points and not show the blue outter edge. That would be cool. Thank you. Ian
  21. Morning guys. Thank you for the nice words Its good to be back and say hello to old friends Its very nice to hear that with the development and big improvements in quality in the ultimaker products that the simple questions are dieing down.. also down to the better customer FAQ and things like that... so for ultimaker BRAVO !! and to the Moderators also... BRAVO Im also quietly using an ultimaker 2 extended the last months with my client at the moment. Printing electric motor boat parts for testing... About getting to the Neatherlands... when and what is happening this year ? Best wis
  22. hi guys. because iv been gone so long.. the user forum has changed a lot. So from what I can see the Coffee chat Tread is now pushed down to a normal tread and not pinned... little pity as it was a nice reminder to people to take a minute and say hi One question.. is the forum is a little more quiet now as what I rememeber before.. or is it just so .... clean white that you dont really find the activity anymore... ? Ian
  23. Hi guys. Whats the Gregs Wade modification ? About my NinjaFlex. When I spotted that the flow was breaking up.. I increased the nozzle temp to 235.. that should be enough but maybe it needs even more. I just swapped back to normal PLA and its printing perfect.. so its not a problem with the nozzle. Im still using my simple flex extruder upgrade.. stupid simple but printing great with no failed prints yet. About examples.. they arent so exciting.. mostly special rubbel holders that close up spaces in motor boat housings when they are spray painted for production. Simple washer prototypes
  24. I have been printing with this material for the last 2 months with no problem with my ultimaker 2 extended. BUT. I came back from 2 weeks holidays and the weather has become a lot warmer... increase of 15 degrees. Now the material has flow problems... im just curious... has the material maybe expanded with the room temp increase or absorbed air moisture ? do I need to buy new material ? Thank you. Ian
  25. ps... love the pirate boat print ! what printer was used ? Ian
