  1. I took a bunch of metal plates, 1.0mm each and stacked them before performing the test again. The head didn't collide with the plates so the sensor is working in some way.FYI: I couldn't adjust a smaller gap with the screws that's why I used a stack of metal plates. Altering the wires didn't help so next I'll dismantle the unit and solder the connection on the board ... to be continued
  2. So I did.... De sensor werkt matig. Bij problemen met actieve kalibratie gaat U naar Ultimaker.com/ER45 So...things to check this evening:-) like on the following redirected adress: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011576000 Smitty, thanks for the tip. this looks promessing:-)
  3. I'll run the level sensor diagnostic tomorrow, (won't be home because I'm at the Fablab tonight). I'll also run the manual leveling and make pictures from the proces. There is a moment where I'm asked to make use of the calibrationcard. At that moment, the gap between nozzle and buildplate is more than I can adjust . there is still more than 4mm to go before I reach a gap of 1.2mm.
  4. @Smitty tnxx. The error existentiële after automatic leveling. the big gap while levering manual. This was never A problemen earlier. The story in pur Fablab is that the problems exist after upgrading the SW.
  5. Hi All, I'm encountering calibration problems. I tried to calibrate manually, but at the moment I need to adjust the gap with the calibration card I'm confronted with a gap>4.0mm. For the record: when calibrating automatically, the endresult is a message to check my nozzle or the buildplate. the glass plate is shiny clean and the nozzle is empty and clean. Reading and searching for similar problems/topics with solutions, is not getting me very happy with all of the SW problems. And even when I want to load an older version it seems not to be possible, is it? I realy
  6. @Daid: At first: tnxx for the effort:-) - superfast slicing! - Infill on top of small objects is almost perfect and if it stays this way, fine with me. I tried several smal words with almost no infill and they close neatly in the last layer. - Turning an object around and laying it down flat is much faster. - Putting several objects all together on the platform without the different windows is just the way it has to be. - more possibilities and a far better way to fill in. but: - Brim looks beautiful, but then starts with the support on the next level, leaving a gap between support and
  7. I really got hooked to the moving arm and hand from the InMoove robot, last weekend at the Protospace event. I downloaded several pieces yet, but I wanted my new (2 weeks:-) Ultimaker producing a piece for approx 24 hours, high resolution, just to see if I could leave her unattended for such a heavy job. It's nice to do that with an attractive model and there she was... http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:93858 You can find details about my settings in the comment I left for the artist. Still 9 hours to go....Pics will follow:-)
  8. Haha, I'm not looking for another job, just trying to help you out, if I can. After all, this seems to be a community:-D Let me guess: direct costs for one wheel: - 5 Eurocents/gram PLA = Euro 2,60 for the plastic pro wheel. - Average printing time / gram = 1,7minutes > 52 x 1,7=88 minutes - power consumption 120 Watt x 5280 sec = 633.600 Joules / 3.600.000 = 0,176 kWh x Euro 0,23 = Euro 0,041 pro wheel:-) - Processing time 6 x 88min = 8,8 hours labor for the yellow one. Takes a little bit poking around changing, testing and leveling, so say 9 - 10 hours. That's approx. 16 Euro's whit
