  1. I really like my month-old Ultibake oven, we modified it allot can't wait to show you guys! - and now that I've read you're going to keep upgrading the 'classic' - I'm ok we didn't get it. (but it sure is pretty, nice job!) I'm really glad you guys have the right attitude toward customer retention, we are with you, if you are with us! GO ULTIMAKER! one thing, my co-builder keeps bugging me - any idea what the time frame is on the heated bed? - pleeeease dont make it too much, as a thank you to the supporting community .. Pwwwease' <3 (or maybe a special price for those who bought
  2. Akkkk! really! .. we knew it! our baggie is missing the little brown thing! .. it was brought to my attention a few days ago, while we were waiting for the parts to finish this thing ( which we got now! and it will finally be working tomorrow, I hope isn't that a part of the assembly which constitutes the 'hot end' .. we were thinking, what if we have to change the hot part, are we supposed to re-use the little brown thing ... Darn, and I just got a bunch of stuff sent to me. Thanks Valcrow
  3. CodeMaven, Yea we were just discussing that those lasers are kinda useless, 'other than pointing stuff out at night, and maybe being a one person rave machine with some little mirrors or something ..lol .. but yea their dangerous. Erik was looking into laser cutters and came across some really promising stuff, we got sucked into all these ideas for more user level applications, but he agrees they are a little inaccessible to fit in a ultimaker ... for now. liquidbuddha, Wow see! We knew it!, this fits right in with what Troy and Erik were talking about! We both grew up with startrek on in
  4. The parts came! And I would just like to say Ultimaker was quite generous Thank you SO I'm hoping I'll be able to put the final parts together tomorrow, and I'll get this thing wORkin! AWESOME! I have at least 50 items lined up to print, but first we are gonna do all the test printing thing-a-ma-jig-ers, and make sure it's all lined up. sOOO excited. I'll post everything up somewhere to show the whole process, stay tuned! Thanks again Ultimaker! Cheers!
  5. Just wondering what is supposed to be included in the baggie, when getting the 'spare hot end' with a new kit. Alice
  6. CodeMaven, [ This is Erik again.. i guess i should just make an account eh.. ] So, OHH MY G*D!! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?! HAH! .. That looks like Einstein and Jordy Laforge got together and made 'My First Di-lithium Easy Bake Oven' !! I'm amazed! .. I bow to that level of enginuity sir! .. well done! So whats all that set you back? ( and dare i ask what other time-travel toys you've created? ) like 100k ? .. more? --------------------------------------------------------------- ____ Cannot link these particular pictures :( Please Click link to see: ____ https://plus.google.com/photos/1
  7. CodeMaven, This is Erik (Alice's friend), do you think we could just talk with JPL or Nasa about how to develop a extreme high temp alloy - cobalt / solid-carbon / ceramic extruder Head for the conductive filament, and likewise a companion high-temp fiament for insulation/structure - it would be layed out at a near-extreme temp, and then when it cools it would have high versatility, or otherwise the effect we are looking for? And how about for such a thing - A CHILLED PLATFORM, or whole Chamber - with liquid nitrogen in a loop or something - is that crazy? - maybe make each wafer/layer separa
  8. Hi SandervG, Ok first I would just like to say that Marrit from Ultimaker has been helping me continuously for days about my machine! I'm really happy about the responce I'm getting, I Feel this is a great company that has it's stuff together! And thank yOu very much for offering help too I'm positive I'll be needing it .. lol First testing revealed that 2 of the motor-driver boards wern't responding, and they're not, they're DOA, the other 2 that Are working we used to iron out the problems I was having with the main board, I thought the whole thing was %#*@ .. howeverrr - Silly me didn'
  9. OMG wow! .. I really need to look around more, thats prettymuch exactly what I was thinking! .. I'm amazed . thanks for the links guys! ...humm .. I'm wondering how far people could go with it in terms of vibrancy and selectability of the colors ... like in the code could be the 'mix' ..and you could control an entire palette of colors .. like a reasonable ammount of gamut ... then eventually be able to print the full gamut with specialized filament err whatever.. now thAT would be cool.
  10. oh my friend is gonna be happy, he wants to make whole circuits or whatever, he was having one of those 'IMAgiNE whAT you Can DOO with THIS!' 'moments ..lol but I can see the benifit of eventually being able to print out all the electronics for this stuff too ... hummm I can see the first person to do that would be remembered forever! just need to make better filament
  11. Ok so I have an idea, hardware upgrade! - What if a specialized extruder head could be made to allow 3 filaments into the head, saaaay Red Green and Blue, then by having the 3 feeders control the ammount, you could effectivly 'mix' any color! - you'd have to get creative with how it works, but these are the things that quite allot of people are asking, the 'but can it do that' advancements that really turn heads - atleast it's on the list for the girls I've talked to .. lol Or, How about this, even better! what if someone developed color filament based on the specific temperature it was ext
  12. Ok, so just having another moment pulling quintessence from the ether, and we were wondering if anyone is working on the ability to have dual extrusion - with one output being a high-tech MODIIFIED solder filament - or otherwise some kind of metalic suspension that has electrical properties, and one could litterally print-out circuits! They would be somewhat simpler, limited by the accuracy and reliability of the special filament, thicker (maybe), with the other nozzle printing insulation layers - or otherwise the entire object! - with the IC pathways internally routed through it, then solder
  13. Hey Valcro, Oops i got it wrong - we are missing parts for the Material Feeder - not the extruder, we found this near the end when we had used most of the parts, lol .. yea there was a couple times we thought something might be missing, but we had everything layed out on a separate table and it was all there, well almost. I understnad with such a large assortment of parts it increases the chances of missing stuff, so ..blehh .. but i'm sure we'll get it up and running soonz' .. I just wrote a ticket thing, I'm guessing they'll see it tomorrow. the wait continues...
  14. Hey I'm back, yea it was really great how fast it came, I was finally able to put it together now, I was away for a few weeks. I wrote about it in the 'Welcome section..
