  1. Dear Ultimaker-fans, We wanted to let you know that at 3D Hubs we've just opened up 5 new internships for talented 3D printing adepts. Some background about 3D Hubs: In a just under a year we have built world's #1 network of 3D printers, with 3400+ locations in over 300 cities worldwide. We are looking for students who share the talent and ambition to make 3D Hubs the world’s leading 3D printing platform. You'll be working full-time with our team of 12 at our historic office on the Amsterdam canals. Unfortunately we can only host EU citizens who are able to stay for a minimum of 4 months.
  2. Hi Guys, I just printed the 3D Kitbash test prints on our Ultimaker. Most of the features came out pretty good, except for the webbing between different features. Other prints I made experience the same issue, does anyone have good advice/rule of thumb for setting the retraction in Cura. I've attached a picture of the print and the Cura settings I used. Cheers, Brian
  3. Thanks for suggesting Daniel. Currently we are adding materials/printers manually, but our platform is contineously being improved. We'll add your printer/material suggestions asap. Bram
  4. That's strange...if you can contact us at hello@3dhubs.com or +1 646 419 3737, we'll see what the problem is and fix it for you. Cheers, Bram
  5. Hi Aaron, In principle we agree with you but the current focus is our role out strategy, after this we will open up more to smaller communities. So we first aim to bring 3D Hubs to the bigger communities where we will have decent coverage with at least 20 print locations, that's currently taking up all our resources. Cheers, Brian
  6. We just did a count in the website and turns out there's now 140+ Ulitmakers on the 3D Hubs website, which makes it the most popular printer on there. :smile:
  7. @Alexander @ciclopez, you have a point, we're exploring alternative ways to open cities and are taking all the above comments in consideration. The current model also has some advantages: [*]people have more choice in materials, colors, size, accuracy, etc.[*]people local alternatives/backup when that printer breaks down or the owner goes on a holiday Of course in the long run each registered printer should be active, independent of where they are based. Our next step is to have a lower number of required printers in smaller cities and we're preparing our platform for this change.
  8. Thanks for the feedback! We're playing with ideas to open up cities earlier/faster, but we don't know how soon we'll release something like that. Keep on #rocking in Madrid
  9. Our first focus is Europe, so we haven't promoted the US cities yet. However we'll be in New York Friday 30th of August till Sunday 1st September. We would be happy to meet up and exchange ideas with you Nick, just drop me an email brian@3dhubs.com if you're up for that.
  10. Hey Alex, I just added your city Odessa to our platform, with new countries we have to manually flip a few switches here. Great to have you on the platform! Let us know if you run into any problems or have ideas.
  11. We aim for truly local production, less shipping is better. We believe that's one of the great things about 3D Printing, you can make what you need on location and only ship the digital files. On top of that having X amount of printers in a city makes sure there is enough choice in quality, material and color. Most cities pass 10 printers quite quickly, this month we're adding Berlin and The Hague to the platform. We're more focussed on the local community, connecting makers with people who want to 3D Print and allow them to experience it either personally or in one of our meetups. Of
  12. You make a valid point CornGolem, what we've experienced from Amsterdam and Antwerp is that many people want to experience 3D Printing up close. By having a minimum number of 3D Printers in a city we make that much more likely, as people pickup their prints themselves. We also organize opening events, and regular meetups where we do live printing and scanning. By having 10 printers we cover a broader range of materials, colors and print qualities in all active cities, as well as guaranteed printing capacity. On the other hand we are considering to open up more and more cities (so lowering the
  13. How often do you get asked to print something for a friend, for a neighbour or even a local business? It's not always as easy as it sounds, right? :smile: We've quit our jobs at 3D Systems and we've been working hard to make this easier by building a platform which connects people who want to print with local printer owners. So far our website is able to check & fix files (using Netfabb), calculate a price for your prints, process the payment and show which materials, colours and print quality are available at each location. Once we get 10 or more print locations in a city we open o
