  1. Please contact your reseller and ask for 5.4.6 until the next update. While another firmware is coming, you can use it today. I have done so at a show. It will not be perfect but you will be able to use it.
  2. Your printer will also display this after certain conditions. But just go into the update menu and it will be there.
  3. Could time and material consumption be added? This is great for standardizing filenames. It is nice at a glance in a fileviewer to learn so much about a file before opening in Cura.
  4. I’m an Application Engineer for Ultimaker in the U.S. and if you email americas@ultimaker.com and mention my name I can help you with a benchmark print. Or just DM what part and material you’re after. I saw and responded on Reddit as well. We’ve had customers (Sylatech) use PLA for investment casting parts. An even better low-ash material is PolyMaker PolyCast and currently used by foundry houses. Luis Rodriguez
  5. Hard to say, maybe the wifi card got loose in shipping? You're not doing something wrong. It is supposed to work without any other intervention beyond the UI switch. Reseller contact is best. Sorry for the troubles, just a momentary setback.
  6. Ultimaker has an office at New Lab, not only do they use them but nearly every hardware startup in the building. You might be able to visit them. Your MakerBot story has been told over and over and over, unfortunately. Are Ultimakers perfect? No, but you can run just about any material known to man and a HUGE community of third-party products exists around them. Alternatives to glass build platforms etc... The one problem I have with the S5 is the wifi disconnecting during a long build. It is annoying but will be fixed with the next firmware. What has been lifesaving is the printer pausing when filament runs out on a 6 day build. I simply went through the filament change routine, hit resume and went away. I print large prints over 2=6 days with zero worries. KPF architects using them worldwide. You never said your budget but Um's range from $3400-$6k for dual extrusion capable printers. $2500-$3k for a single extrusion model. The only problem I have with 3d hubs ratings is this only represents hubs operators that may use our machines for business. It is my understanding the 50-60% of our sales are to the professional market. The next 20-30% is into the education market. The rest are a mix of small business and individuals. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can help.
  7. Yep, that worked great! Combing Not in Skin, this is Fast Mode, BTW.
  8. Actually it looks like Combing All and Combing Off seem the same? I think Maybe Combing Not in Skin might work? I'll try it. I'm in the same town as Nathan. ? I'm printing one now in Spiralize because it looks perfect for this. Especially with a .8 core. I'll try Combing Not in Skin to test your intended result. Combing Not in Skin Combing All Combing Off
  9. Have you looked into using support ONLY for the Support Interface? The support is printed with your main material. It saves your support material consumption, and money!
  10. Hello, Nathan! Looks like I need to come visit! This is a Spiralize Outer Contour (Special mode) print? I'd be happy to try printing the model for comparison on my S5.
  11. Oh no! I'm not sure. I was able to use it but I'm on Windows 10 at the moment.
  12. go to view all versions and scroll down to Beta
  13. I assume it's coming soon? Walk over to that dept and poke them.
  14. There is a direct link in sanders post: Gotten curious? Download Ultimaker Cura 3.3 Beta here
  15. Yep, do NOT use the stock core or you will bore out the nozzle and wear down the tip. There is a third-party solution from 3d Solex that people use pretty successfully. You'll want to buy the HardCore EVERLAST Ruby Sapphire Nozzles for abrasives. U.S. Supplier https://thegr5store.com/store/index.php/um3upg.html Info http://3dsolex.com/product/um3-hardcore/
  16. Maybe here? https://github.com/Ultimaker/um-kernel
  17. Just a heads up that if you are headed to New York for Maker Faire, Ultimaker is partnering up with MatterHackers for a meetup at FatCat FabLab the Thursday before. This is our second year, it is a lot of fun, and a good event to network before the crazy Maker Faire weekend begins! You can also meet the entire Ultimaker North America Community team, Matt Griffin, Liz Arum, and Luis Rodriguez. We will also have many Ultimaker Community members in attendance, including UltiArjan and Gr5! Details about the meetup are below and let us know if you want to meetup onsite at Maker Faire!

  18. If all you need is access to the camera than just use the below format for the IP of your machine and add: Your_machine_ip:8080/?action=snapshot or Your_machine_ip:8080/?action=stream You can read all about the configuration of the UM3 with the 6-day thread that David Braam hosted some time ago: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/23254-inside-the-ultimaker-3-day-1-gcode
  19. Many people have used these feeders on Ultimakers. Here is one expert user, below, who used just the Bondtech drive gears. The instructions look pretty good, the only concern might be price? Neotko FatIRobertI Bondtech Feeder for UM2+ / UM3
  20. You can see what Ultimaker uses in their Maintenance kit. Sewing Machine oil. Literally $4 at Walmart. Very light. Anything else will turn into a black dirty mess and harm the rods. Trust us, we are here to help you. Or take your chances with a $2500 machine. Ultimaker 2+ Maintenance Kit
  21. Right-click on the Cura icon in the finder and choose "show package contents". Under Resources | Plugins | Plugins there is a USBPrinting folder. I assume it is that. What printer do you have?
