  1. I bought my Ultimaker in the beginning of this year 2013 and yesterday I set up my additional hot end and feeder. I also used the new Marlin builder (from http://marlinbuilder.robotfuzz.com/) to create the hex file to update my firmware. I also updated my Cura preferences and restarted Cura. I'm using Cura 13.06.4. When starting a new dual print both hot ends heat up but only one extruder motor is working. The ulticontroller is only registering one motor but 2 hot ends. The firmware update was for the heated bed and dual extrude set up on an Ultimaker. I'm thinking either the extruder 2 port is not working or the firmware update is not correct. I know both motors work because I swapped them and when either one is connected into extruder 1 port they both function normally. How do I test the second extruder port to make sure it's functioning properly? And how can I get the firmware or ulticontroller to recognized the second extruder. I should point out that I did wait for the hot ends to come up to the correct temperature to test the extruder. Below is the my current config.h file from the marlin builder. #ifndef CONFIGURATION_H #define CONFIGURATION_H // This configuration file contains the basic settings. // Advanced settings can be found in Configuration_adv.h // BASIC SETTINGS: select your board type, temperature sensor type, axis scaling, and endstop configuration // User-specified version info of this build to display in [Pronterface, etc] terminal window during // startup.

  2. I've taken out my pla and i've tried to feed in my new ABS filament. This is my first go around with ABS and I'm getting really frustrated. With PLA i just pull out the filament and swap in the new stuff or different color. I tried this with the ABS after setting my nozzle temp to 240C and nothing. My nozzle was jammed so i removed the nozzle cleaned out the print head and nozzle and tried it again. Same thing, nozzle jam. So i sanded down the first few layers of the ABS thinking maybe the diameter was too large. Another jam. Then i increased the temp at the nozzle. Another jam. I've taken this stupid thing apart around 5 times now. I've taken a torch to the nozzle to make sure that it was thoroughly cleaned. I've pushed the filament through the print head when it was cold and with the nozzle removed and it went through without a problem. I put on the nozzle and heat things up and nothing. Jam after jam. I'm about ready to give up on ABS. It prints great with PLA never a problem like this. Are Ultimakers just extremely bad at printing ABS? The ABS is from IC3D. Do they make bad stuff? What's going on?
  3. My prints are coming out in the correct shapes but they seem to off dimensionally. I figured this out when I printed the nickel test print from Thingiverse, http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11261. My nickel would not fit into the test piece. The x and y slot were both too narrow for the nickel and the round hole was too small for nickle to sit in. I'm a little stumped as too the reason for this. The slots are both undersized by the same amount. For the settings I just used the default Cura settings with skin enabled. I tightened the belts, leveled the bed, printed at 220C but I need to know what "knob" to turn in order to get the size right. Is this an extruder problem or a belt problem or software problem. I was reading some forums online about possible adjust the extrusion rate or x y steps but wanted some feedback before trying these things.
  4. I had the same problem with printing a cube. Are your layers coming out solid or are the layers inconsistent? The reason for my crooked prints was that the filament was slipping as it went through the extruder. Check and make sure that the bolt tensioner is tight enough.
  5. So I've had my Ultimaker about 2 weeks and have been slowly tweeking it. I felt pretty good about some of my prints thus far so I thought I'd give the hollow pyramid a try. I turned on retraction and left all other parameters of Cura at their default values. I was printing using the grey PLA material supplied with my Ultimaker kit. I was going to attempt the Yoda first but thought this would be a better test for stringing. Also I wanted to test the Bowden compression fitting submitted by Owen on Thingiverse. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11864. I thought it came out pretty good as I only had one string. I'm going to make some mods in Cura but wanted some feedback from the community as to the quality of this most recent print and any tips moving forward on the more difficult prints. Especially since i'm moving on to the torture test after the Yoda. I have to say the Ultimaker is one of the best investments i have ever made and I'm glad i did my research on desktop 3d printers.
  6. I've never really examine the filament after it stops. I'll take a look today when i start a print. From everything you've told me it seems that I have the assembly right. Maybe the problem is at my hot end. It's just when it stops feeding and I push the filament up by hand then the feeder mechanisms will start working again. So maybe it's getting clogged at the hot end and when i put the additional force moves the blockage and the feeder mechanism works again. It there an issue with the bowden tube being pushed too far into the white teflon piece?
  7. I got my printer in a couple of day ago and was able to assemble it in one day. Great job on all the assembly instructions except for one section dealing with the feeder mechanism at the back of the printer. I followed the instruction that were there but now that i'm printing I don't think the mechanism is functioning properly. It will feed for a couple of minutes and then stop and my prints are suffering. I've adjusted the position of the spring/bolt apparatus attached to the feeder to every position imaginable and still the same problem. It will feed for a while and then stop. Is this a problem with the feeder or at the hot end? My print temp is at 220 degrees for the PLA that was supplied by Ultimaker. I have adjusted the flowrate in Cura. My feedrate seems reasonable. It just not grabbing!!! I'm a little frustrated by this especially since the prints start off great.
  8. I just purchased an Ultimaker and started printing yesterday. So far I've had some promising result. I was wondering if you Floridian Ultimakers were still doing any meet ups and how your getting along with your Ultimaker.
