  1. Thanks, I really appreciate these tips. DeVIDE looks promising (although a bit complicated). I'll see if I can get the ultrasound company to convert the files into .dvx for me.
  2. I had this idea about 3d-printing my unborn baby based on some 3d ultrasound images, so we got transferred the raw-data from one 3d-ultrasound session on an usb-stick, but the format look a bit proprietary and I cannot find a way to open them. Does anyone know how to convert .vol/.raw ultrasound files to .stl/.obj ? The .vol files start with the text "KRETZFILE 1.0" while the .raw files start with the text "%HDF" if that mean anything. Even if there is no such conversion program, I would gladly write software to do the conversion if I got a description of the file formats. Does anyone have
  3. Wow,that's a really powerful mesh editor. This will help me a lot with cleaning up bad objects. Thanks a lot for the post, best tip ever :-)
  4. Funny that you should be needing this right now when I'm writing software to handle that task myself :-) Well, actually it's supposed to be a new open source slicer with some nice features never seen before, but I haven't gotten that far yet, however what you're looking for is already implemented, maybe you want to be a beta tester :-)
  5. And here you can get the metal clay if you want to experiment: http://www.metalclaysupply.com/Powdered-Metal-Clay-s/283.htm It should work with copper, bronze, brass, iron, steel, gold and silver according to that indiegogo-campain in my previous post.
  6. netfab has a built in decimation feature so handling models is faster. You need to set the model to 100% to get full accuracy. Sorry I don't have netfabb in front of me, so I don't remember exactly where it was, but I think it is in the model list at the top right corner.
  7. Finally someone designed what I think is the future for the nozzles. Multi colour in the same nozzle: http://www.3ders.org/articles/20120825- ... nting.html Would be nice to have it adjusted for the Ultimaker somehow.
  8. This is good news :-) Congratulations Daid!
  9. Nice printer! Thinking about it, it would have been very cool to have one of my own, now that I'm going on holiday. Nice and practical to carry around :-) ...well, I guess I just have to leave the ultimaker at home for the next weeks :-(

  11. FYI: The filabot wee was just made public open source a week ago, you can find all the plans and part lists on the filabot forum or thingiverse: http://filabot.com/forum/topic/design-links-and-video/ http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:24583 I am wondering if I am going to build one myself...
  12. Cool, thank you for the update, lots of nice features here. This reduces my wish list for the next version(s) to: * Retraction * Fixed bugs in support structures (some support structures hang in thin air) * Multithreaded slicing ...just a little bit more waiting :-)
  13. Ian, that's a really nice city you're building. I'm impressed by the quality of the buildings, it's so smooth!
  14. Thank you. I could probably have added two more diodes to get 50% more light without the resistor and still at ~20mA, but I only had one more diode and the shop was too far away ;-)
  15. The only way to buy it is through the web-shop www.ultimaker.com, as far as I know...
