    Hi @RMG, welcome! When you have Ultimaker Cura 3.6 open, you can go to the Marketplace > Materials > BASF > and install the PET CF material profile. Use it in combination with your CC core for the best and safest results. Good luck!

    2.6.2 Download not working

    Hi @DrSchmoll, if I'm not mistaken we're in the process of removing some older legacy versions to keep things organized and structured. Unfortunately the removal of some versions seem to have gone a little bit faster than the removal of links. You should still be able to find 15.04.06 and 2.3.1 as they are the most used/downloaded legacy versions. Have you tried these already?

    Ultimaker S5 | impressions & opinions

    Happy to see you are back, and happy to see the new firmware has been good for you πŸ™‚ That will most likely be in the next release though, so perhaps another thing to look forward too. Perhaps we did consider, I'm not sure. In any case, at some point the decision was based to go for an aluminum bed instead of any of the alternatives. Unfortunately, as you read in your email and perhaps here as well, that didn't make it to a release. I'll ask if we can release any of those details, but I can't promise that will happen. Unless I'm mistaken, in the email there was mention that before the end of Q1 (March), everyone should have received their additional glass plates. This doesn't mean all glass plates will be sent in that very last week, but it will be processed in batches I believe.

    Thanks for the information. Following your findings I also did some more research and alerted our channel managers to reach out to our partners and see if they need any extra help to update their resources.

    Tip: Bed adhesion

    Based on the surface on the bottom and the apparent seam that exists between the lines, I would say your bed is a little bit too low. Raise it a little bit and try again.
  6. Hello! Ultimaker is developing a 3D print Learning environment. In the next months we will develop e-learnings on the basics of 3D printing. We are recruiting interviewees with little or no 3D printing experience to discuss your (learning) needs. Is your new year's resolution to learn 3D printing and do you have 30 minutes available on Thursday the 10th or Friday the 11th of January? Please sign up here Do you have any questions? Please feel free to post them below! All the best, SandervanG & Sanna (projectmanager e-learning @ Ultimaker)

    Ultimaker S5 | impressions & opinions

    Hi Asb, thanks again for your input. A while back I provided you with some instructions to set up a static IP address. Did this work for you? You are right that this could, or should be documented better. We're working on this, within a larger scope of features we're working on, and in the meantime we hope to help users with instructions like the ones I send to you. If they didn't work, please let me know and we can look into it together. Regarding this; can you let me know, via a DM if you want, which resellers have not updated their materials? We've updated our channels, but obviously we can't make the changes for them. If for whatever reason it was not changed, we would like to reach to them and see if we can help. It is important for everyone that this is clear, and no longer promoted. Hope this helps.

    Ultimaker fiber printers

    Hello, I am good thank you! Hope you also started 2019 off well. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to say much about future products. But if you're referring to a printer like Markforged, that is not on the nearby roadmap as far as I know.
  9. Happy 2019 to everyone!! πŸΎπŸŽ‰ I hope you 2019 is going to be an inspirational and memorable year for everyone. Are there already any interesting projects or events you are looking forward to? It looks like I will be making my first trips to Asia this year and visit some events there, which is quite exciting! Talk about being busy! I'm happy that Ultimaker has been able to play a part in some of them! I have been really good, thank you.

    XSTRAND GF30 PA6 Test Print

    I believe Owens Corning also did some tests with 0.4mm, but our profile is indeed limited to 0.6 due to the CC print core. I would be hesitant to go below 0.4 because of the fibers that are added to the material, they may end up clogging your nozzle if you go too small.

    Ultimaker S5 Flow Sensor Not Reliable

    It does. Can you upload a photo of your set up?

    Xmas Candy canes

    Great, very cool! Did you host the workshop? I'm also curious about those other fancy ornaments hanging in your Christmas tree πŸ˜›
  13. Hi @asb, thank you for your responses and joining the conversation. We also regret not being able to deliver the aluminum bed. I don't think anyone was favoring this outcome. We tried our best, but after great initial results we could not overcome some remaining challenges and our experiences became unreliable and not up to our standards. We do believe this is a better route than the alternative, which is releasing a product which we can not guarantee its reliability and behavior. And we also did not want to postpone it inevitably, which would only add to the frustration too. We think an additional glass plate offers a similar functionality as an aluminum bed would have, all of our engineering material profiles are being tested on a glass plate and it provides a similar uptime as an aluminum bed would have. If you have no need of an additional glass plate, please feel free to reach out to me via a DM and we can talk over your specific situation and use case and find a common ground to move forward on. I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Once again our apologies for the inconvenience.
  14. Long time no see @LesHall , how have you been?

    NO Aluminum build plate.

    Neo, joining the conversation is fine but if don't know the facts please ask what is what before making claims. All users who have registered for a build plate did receive an email, a blog post is shared with those recipients containing more information and we are updating the content regarding the Ultimaker S5 and adding an additional glass plate to the packaging. That is the decision that is made and this is the process that followed. And like I said, if you feel this direction does not work for you please reach out to me and we can see if we can find a common ground we can both move forward on.
