  1. Thanks, after further investigations, it seems I had a chain of problems: oxidation on the plug of the PSU explained the bad readings, but it is working in fact. Then I had a bad contact in one of the plugs of the cable going from the small card (on which you plug the PSU ) to the main ultimaker board. If I use another PSU plugged directly to the ultimaker board, everything is working. So I just need to replace this cable. Thanks
  2. Thank you for the answer, I didn't know it was the same PSU and didn't want to make a mistake. But the price of this PSU is very high ! 145€, the price of a cheap 3d printer. I have a 24v 15A PSU lying on a shelve, I think I will use it as a replacement for the moment, except if somebody tells me I should not (Not sure how sensitive the ultimaker is to the quality of the PSU).
  3. Hello everybody, after several years and thousands of hours of 3d printing mys ultimaker original+ stopped working. I think it's the PSU. But it is the PSU of the heated bed upgrade, it has four pins inside a metalic circle. It is said to deliver 24v. With a voltmetre I get a reading like 10v that drops instantaneously. I don't find it in any reseller in France (only original PSU can be found). Does anybody know what voltage I should put in each pin and how many watts it should provide for each pin ? Or if somebody knows where to buy it ? Thanks

    This was one of my first 3D prints. I used a mud house model I designed in Blender long long time ago for a friend (Meltingman) for the image above. This design is freely inspired by the Musgum mud houses.

    This is a simple replacement tire for my son's playmobil motorbike. I told him many time to stop removing the tires... of course he lost one of them. "No problem dad ! You can print me a new one, and in white please."
  6. Nice that the light comes through. Did you print it with a shell thickness of 1? I noticed with some tests that the light passing through is not proportional to the thickness. More or less, up to 1.2mm (with the white blueish colorfabb) the light passes, with more thickness it's almost stopped. So the parts letting the light passing are here 0.8mm thick, the other ones 2mm thick.
  7. I forgot to post a lot of prints lately, but I like this one so here is a lamp shade: More details here: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/prints/5051-wireframe-lamp-shade

    I started this lamp shade with the general shape in mind an the wish to play with thickness for letting the light draw things on it. I wanted the light to make it look different. While playing around in Blender I was hesitating between sharp edges to make the polygons realy visible, or smooth the edges to make them less obvious. The the idea arrived to make it smooth an let the light draw the edges. I really like the roughness of the light passing through, making the layers and defects really visible, giving imperfections that makes it look like a crafted object and not a printed one.

    An experiment with Blender soft bodies to use Gaudi's technique to automatically design the optimal shape of a roof. The model has been then decimated to have a more contemporary look compared to the original one here: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/prints/4916-smooth-cathedral-model More info here:

    The shape is very simple, an icosphere, but the sanding and the surface of the raw bronzefill make it very beautifull. Printed in bronzefill, with 0.1mm layer height. Sanded roughly only on the edges to have a nice contrast between the edges and the faces with lines. You have to print it twice to have all the parts. It is better not to print at once to avoid blobs.
  12. Hello all, I don't have so much time to publish my prints anymore, and here is the reason why: I founded Chantier Libre a non-profit fablab 3 years ago, which promotes the use of libre softwares and open hardware. Of course the first tool we used was my trusty old Ultimaker Original. We launched a crowdfunding campaign to allow us to build more machines (SLA and ceramic 3D printer, big size 3D printer, thermoforming machine...) and mainly to build the first prototype for our openhardware big CNC machine Fraizilla. This CNC is designed to cut 2.5x1.25m panels for projects like Opendesk

    The patterns of this necklace are proceduraly generated: all the parts are different. I used Blender to design it. Don't forget the brim for the print ! Whats so good with bronzefill is the heavy weight of the prints: it relly feels different as plastic.

    This is a quick and easy to print medaillon, very nice in colorfabb bronzefill once polished.

    This a lamp designed in Blender with prodcedural texture to make some bumps on it. It is 3D printed in Colorfabb XT, then the "valleys" are filled with a natural clay plaster, so that the light is stopped or not with the pattern of the texture. The result plays beautifully with light, lighten or not. It has been designed to print without support.

    This is the model of the village where our fablab is located (St Cyr de Favières). Modelled with Blender from aerial views, pictures and map, with the aim to make the village easy to recognize. We wanted to make 19 of them, as a gift to the 19 mayors of the villages with the same name as the one of our fablab, as they gathered for their annual meeting. The big print was too long, so we reduced it a little to stay under the 5 hours per print limit.

    This is the model of the village where our fablab is located (St Cyr de Favières). Modelled with Blender from aerial views, pictures and map, with the aim to make the village easy to recognize. The print with woodfill makes it quite different from the white colorfabb version: less details but the feeling is very nice
  18. Here are my two last prints, both planters as I needed some for the fablab. The first one is quite simple The second is more complicated as I didn't want to need a saucer for that: So I modeled a ventilated drain to prevent stagnation of excess water at the bottom. More details in my "print" section. All the files are of course on Youmagine

    The idea for this one came after my other 3d Print of a planter: I just realized I was not very interested in designing a saucer for the planter as generaly I don't like them. So I just decided to design a planter with good draining capacities but watertignt so that you don't have to put it on a saucer. 3Dprinting is made for that ! In fact my design is impossible to mould I think. There is a space under the container that can receive any excess water (it's not that big, so no need to pour 1 liter), and two big vents to allow it to dry. The print itself should be easy as I designed it for no

    This a pot for flower I designed in Blender. I needed a small and stylish pot. Hope you enjoy it. I printed it at 0.2mm height. You can vary the size of the pot according to your needs. There is a hole so that the water doesn't stay at the bottom of the planter.
  21. Here are my last ones, some Xmas decoration, that you can use for hanging mobiles. On the Youmagine page you will find the Blender file to try it if you want And an explanation of the design in Blender On Youmagine
  22. It is ABS processed with acetone vapor.
  23. This railway station is really impressive ! This is may latest one, a wedding cake topper from a skanect scan, some Makehuman bodies and a lot of tweaking in Blender

    This is the wedding cake topper I did for some friends. The most difficult part was to scan them without them guessing why But it was fun too. I used Skanect to scan them, then I started from MakeHuman for the bodies. A lot of work in Blender to make the MakeHuman suit printable. For the woman dress, I modeled it completly as I didn't find anything I liked. I printed them with ABS, needed to "close" my ultimaker to get it work as it was my first attempt with ABS. Then I used aceton vapor for the finish. Not that easy to guess the correct time for it to have this perfect shiny finish without
  25. Thanks, yes I made a mistake with the thickness of the top surface. I'm currenrtly printing it again
