  1. Hi guys, After years of following the evolution of the mark2 project, I finally got my hands on relatively cheap second-hand Ultimaker 2 (non plus that wasn't in the best shape to be honest) and did the upgrade a week after receiving the machine! As a UMO veteran - not even the Ulticontroller was around when I first got my machine xD- I am super amazed how well the mark2 does! While I have been playing around with the original dual extrusion upgrade, I must say that the mark2 is lightyears ahead in every concern!! I created a magnetic head for my e3d-hotend that I'll be sharing
  2. @neotko: I thought so, but never had an opperunity to try one Is this actually due to the fileformat of those SD-cards being incopatible with the ultimaker (so to say SD-HC vs Ultimakers SD-format) or is there any other reason?
  3. To be honest, i dont understand why some people actually fancy printing via usb... It is definitely not as reliable as using a SD-card. I received my Ultimaker(orignal) before the Ulticontroller was available and dont really miss that time to much xD Back in the days, Cura (or an other extra-software , that took pregenerated gcode) had to be used to send the commands to your printer. As already said, this connection was not as reliable as one would whish. I have no clue, if this was due to the Computer-Usb-stack not being designed for real time applications or the fact, that the Arduino i
  4. Hi Guys, after working on it some time ago, this thread makes me want to get started with my old idea of producing a similiar (but not terminator inspired ) robo head again! my robo-eye is already working quit well! Eexcept the motors and the short wire peaces (connecting eye-ball and motor) everything is printed! Movment is not to smooth which is mainly due to the bad servos i am using.. I already got replacement but as good as no time to work on the designe.... The brain of this baby is going to be a Udoo-Quad and i am planning on adding a webcam (or better to say just the ch
  5. Dont know if i am a pro but i am in london for an other week and might help you out with some of the things you mentioned! Send me a pm!
  6. Hi guys, I didn't find enough time just yet iam sorry... I managed to get things running with ct data and am not to sure if you'll be able to handle the specific ultrasounf format... Since the mitk-software is really komplex i'll need some time to finish the tut (and the pictures i was planning to use) Ji11x38
  7. He guys, Planing on 3d printing some stuff from an mri-scan next week. I am going to use mitk, the medical imagery toolkit. If anyone is iterested, i could write a small how to. I think you can actually open 3d ultrasound files but i dont know for sure just giv it a try! It's completly open source and free to use (made by the company i am working for!) Regards Ji11x38
  8. I have been contacting you via pm. Got no reply...are the any pulleys left? Or will. There be an other batch any time soon?
  9. Wow amazing ken! By the way are you italie ? For some strange reason i have never heared of the fist of the north star till living in london for a while and meeting many italiens. They all had in common, that they were always chatting about ken xD Anyway here is one of my prints: It' s one of my printed lampshades. Made up of three parts and printed in the amazing golden pla that is a bit translucent! It has a wonderful warm light!
  10. Hi there ! Didn´t read this thread yet but am a bit disapointed since there are so few pics at the moment... Printing with the dual setup seems to be more difficult than we all thought (and even more time consuming...) Did not have to much time to play around yet but here is what i got so far: The first one i did is this little guy here: with his low z-resolution he looks quite bad and as you can see, there are lots of troubles on the feeder of the red pla. In the context that the print took place before the kit was released (and a good number of changes in the software ) i am still im
  11. Thanks for the great pics ! Wonderful that you took the feeder apart! Really interesting what ultimaker did! And amazing that we got some fotos of the new z screw setup
  12. I was wondering how you generated the cad files. Am i right, that you "only" exported the files out of the video game? Or did you do this design yourself (or even for the videogame)? Sorry to be so rude... i am of course impressed about the work you did(especially on the color!!! Aswell as on the joints!!) I myself already managed to print some files out of Half-Life 2 due to reading the graphic-card memory. it would be interesting to see what you did! Anyway what you did, what where u using? Keep it up! Ji
  13. I would love to see a picture of the electronics or at least one of the bottom of the printer. Is the arduino gone or are they still using one? And what about the servo controllers? ( did you solve your layer shift problem yet? ) A closeup-shot from the new feeder would be cool,too! (Even better if taken apart) How did you put the tape on the print platform? Can you undock it somehow or did you have to fiddle around to get the tape on it? And last but not least: is their anything behing the motot covers? (Except the motors ) Did not see too much in the pictures you posted in an other t
