  1. Thank you. It's an X18, the tall one, they bought it before I started otherwise they would have an Ultimaker instead! I think I'll do a trial to see what happens.. Mark
  2. Hi all, In my last job I got them to buy an Ultimaker, which I was allowed to keep when I was made redundant.... I'm now working for a new company but they have a Makerbot plus the software that goes with it. my question is can I use all the settings in cura to control the makerbot such as advanced, expert and the skirt feature or will that be left out when it writes the makerbot G code? Regards Mark
  3. Thanks all for the helpful replies. I will let you know how it goes. Regards Mark
  4. Hi all, Could do with a few pointers. I'm going to take my ultimaker 1 home from work. Any suggestions about things I should collapse or remove to make a 2 hour commute on a train in rush hour and a 2 mile walk the other end a little less of a problem. Thanks Mark
  5. The little tab on the figurine jar belongs to this company http://www.imakr.com/ might be sold via them.
  6. That's good to know. Thanks I would like to say well done on an outstanding product, I have just recommended Cura to someone on another forum with a different printer as I feel that Cura is the most straight forward and easiest to use. Regards Mark
  7. Hi Daid, Like everyone else I love Cura and each version gets better and better BUT one thing hasn't changed and that is the print by USB interface Could it be possible to improve this to at least include a dual head option or reconise its a two colour print. I don't get on with the sd card and controller and I'm sure others don't. I don't see any differance in quality between printing via USB and SD card I just find it easier to do it all from one computer. Way back at cura 12.8 or maybe before it came with printrun which I think is a nice easy to use and see whats going on interface but had plenty of options to tinker with pre printing ( i use it to set up the printer, check its movement etc ) but it also lacks a two printhead option. Regards Mark
  8. Hi All just a quick question. I have a UM1 and I updated to Cura 13.11.2 should I update Marlin as well or is this just for UM2 users with the changes that are listed in it? Regards Mark
  9. Hi all, I've not had any problems because I don't have a glass plate on my printer BUT this sort of looked familiar....and I think the problem could be along these lines..... From the Miele ceramic hob operating instructions. ''Do not allow either solid or liquid sugar or pieces of plastic or aluminium foil to get on to the ceramic hob when it is hot. If this is allowed to cool before the hob has been cleaned, the ceramic surface will be susceptible to pitting or even cracking.'' So if you allowed the glass plate (hob) to cool before removing the print (Sugar/plastic) then it binds to the glass and removal causes the pitting. The use of the glue stick could be acting like a barrier between the glass and the PLA/ABS so some people don't have the problem but as you printed direct onto glass it's stuck! I have a large glass plate I use as a flat bed for making the models on. I get superglue on it at times and when I try to scrap it off with a scalpel sometimes a small bit of glass comes with it, more often then not it just scrapes off. Anyway it's something to think about. Regards Mark
  10. Hi Jimmy D I'm an in-house architectural model maker and I use various programmes to achieve the end result in MY work line. I have used MicroStation for years and I am most comfortable with that but here at work drawings are produced in AutoCAD ( could never get on with it!) so I use both programmes to resolve issues switching and saving between the two then using Rhino to refine and save as .stl for printing. The architects are starting to use Revit here too and we did try to export directly as a .stl but we had issues with what was required for printing and what Revit produced, so I had to redraw it in Rhino. Admittedly we've only tried this once and I'm sure there is a resolve but because of time we can't expect every architect to be trained in the ways of drawing for 3D printing so for the moment it's easier and quicker for them to send their stuff as .dwg to me and I work the magic with AutoCAD, MicroStation, Rhino and Cura to produce the parts I need for my models. As Daid says it's what works for you and what achieves the best results for you. Regards
  11. same here, Also tried right click toolpath print via USB and no print dialog box either. Hope this is what you're after.. Loading # from disk...

  12. What firmware version shows on your ulticontroller? Mine is Ultimaker 13.03 March 1 2013 12:34:53 just checking that mine is operating as it should. Rergards
  13. Ok, got the link now via 3dcases' posting. Will give it a go too. Thanks
