  1. Very cool, thanks for sharing @Jakeddesign ! Did you also get some air time?
  2. @geert_2, interesting that you have those experiences. Do you think the additives (like salt) make the water behave differently?
  3. There won't be any problem if you use an adhesion sheet on the other side. But since the non-tin side provides decent adhesion by itself, perhaps you don't want to hide it underneath an adhesion sheet πŸ™‚
  4. Hi, I just wanted to inform you that NylonG is back in our marketplace πŸ™‚
  5. I wanted to inform you that NylonX is back online in the marketplace πŸ™‚
  6. How did you clean them? Just in case, here are some instructions in case you may have missed a step.
  7. @Vasadze, could you share some photo's of your Ultimaker? Front / back, a few different angles so perhaps we can detect something that seems off.
  8. Yes, it should be showed in the bottom right corner.
  9. Hi Daniel, welcome to our community! You may want to increase the minimum layer time setting. It will force the printer to slow down on those layers which should give the filament time to cool down. Without it, it does not have sufficient time to cool down after extrusion, plus the hot nozzle that it touches keeps continuously heating/melting the filament.
  10. Hi @Spentys , welcome to the community! Have you followed the recommendations from this thread and update your firmware? Can you share with me which version you are using atm? Thanks!
  11. Hello! You may have heard stories about glass plate having one side which brings you slightly better adhesion compared to the other side, or perhaps you have experienced this first hand yourself. Allow me to provide you with some background information and some instructions to figure out which side you should be printing on and which side you should use if you want to add an adhesion sheet. The difference is first introduced during production. When our glass plates are being made, near the end of the production line there is a hardening process. During the hardening process, the plates float on a layer of tin and are heated from above. This creates a difference between the two sides. There are two main factors that ensure good adhesion to the glass plate: wetting and flatness. Wetting is the ability of a liquid to maintain contact with a solid surface. Lower surface tension means better wetting. The non-tin side (i.e. upside during the hardening process) has a lower surface tension than the tin side. Therefore the non-tin side is recommended to print on. If the sticker that is on your glass plate fell off, you can do a simple small test to identify which side is which by placing a drop of water on both sides of the glass. (Not at the same time though). The non-tin side, the side you want to be printing on, is hydrophilic and the water disperses. On the tin side, the water will form a droplet (this side is hydrophobic). If you want to use an adhesion sheet, it is recommended to stick it to this side. Hope this helps! Let me know below if you have any further questions!
  12. But can we get a shout out to the active leveling that we can even do this πŸ™‚
  13. Hi, have you visited this page already? It may contain all the tips you're looking for!
  14. It looks like the profile was indeed removed due to a technical error. We've reached out to them and they were going through the process on getting it back online again. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

    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!
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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)
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
