  1. Maybe I've got a cheap alternative CAD software for some of you: http://cubify.com/products/cubify_invent/index.aspx (14 day free trial) I just tried it some Minutes and I'm impressed what you get for 49$. I'm a native Solidworks user so I'm used to to CAD work. It is pretty straight forward and easy to use. Cubify imports STEP, Solidworks Parts, IGES and SAT Files. That option makes it very valuable since you can use many models from one of the gratest CAD websites. http://grabcad.com/ You can export STL files but you can't import stl files. The only major drawback I can find is the lack of an assembly function.
  2. Save as -> stl. Output ->Binary Resolution:Custom Deviation: Set the bar to middle Angle: 5deg Save all components to single stl. file -> Is easier than Cura project planner If the file is still not smooth, lower the angle and set the deviation to a lower value
  3. Das war bei mir auch so. Mein Ultimaker hing damals ca. 1.5 Monate beim Zoll fest und niemand (auch DHL) wusste anscheinend nicht wo er steckte. Nach ca. 2 Monaten kam dann der Ultimaker bei mir an. Ich habe ebenfalls den Support angeschrieben und das Ultimaker Team versuchte meinen Ultimaker ausfindig zu machen - ebenfall erfolglos. Ich hoffe das ist bei dir nicht der Fall. P.s. komme aus CH
  4. Quick update: I installed Ubuntu in a virtual box and installed Cura there (which wasn't that easy but finally I managed to do it). Everything works just fine now.
  5. Yeah but I don't want to use a different slicer, since cura gave me excellent results - way better than netfabb. Instead I try to run linux in a virtual box and slice it there with cura. Hope that works...
  6. I just ran memtest86+. Fortunately there weren't any errors. The thing I try to print is complex but not that complex ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:19104 ) the same thing happens with the terminator skull. (Not scaled 0.1mm layer height)
  7. Everytime i try to slice a bigger model with cura I get this error. Here's the log: File C:\Users\Chuleo\Desktop\cellularThing_optimizedForMakerbot.stl is being chain exported. Carve procedure took 1 minute 29 seconds. Preface procedure took 1 minute 4 seconds. Inset procedure took 6 minutes 7 seconds. Fill procedure took 15 minutes 6 seconds.

As a test I sliced the same model with 1mm layer height, which worked just fine. It can't be because of the amount of RAM (10 of 16GB Free in normal operation.) Nor can't it be because of lack of disk space. I run Windows 7 x64 (The same thing happens with my desktop computer and my Notebook) Best Regards Chuleo
  8. I have do add something: I used to have almost the same problem as you do. Except my printer didn't stop, it just missed some steps making the whole print unusable. The ultimaker is extremely sensitive to a dirty AC network. Every time i switched on the light in the basement where my ultimaker is, the prints shifted. (Guess how long i had to figure that out :roll: ) The next thing I do is installing a Line filter. I hope that works... if not I consider buying a cheap online USV.
  9. Order numer #100001255 Order date: 11.1.2012 Payment confirmed : 15.1.2012 Date Shipped: 24.2.2012 Date Received: N/A Thank you DHL for having lost my Ultimaker! Tracking nr is JJD00009005770854002660 At least I chose insuranced shipping. Of course I already told the Ultimaker Team and I can say that their service is very good! They reply fast and are very helpful. When I contacted DHL they just told me they didn't know what happened. When the Ultimaker team asked DHL in the Netherlands they got informed that my ultimaker was lost. I hope parts will be available soon so they can send me a new Ultimaker.
