  1. @Aaron: I'm guessing you printed this on your UM1 and used the UM2 cos its a great photo booth, yes? Would love to see a video of the printing next time you print.
  2. Or put your UM2 box to good use.
  3. @Didier I love that spool holder, and is that an RPi camera I see on your UM2?
  4. That's a UM1. I read UM0 as UM [zero] and thought it might be a very early prototype. Hangs head :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
  5. Those are great looking gear prints, what CAD did you use to design them?
  6. Its a http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/products/6796889/?cm_mmc=UK-PPC-0212-_-Google_3_MPN_Exact-_-Mean_Well_PSF_430701_Desktop_Power_Supply-_-GS220A24-R7B&gclid=CjkKEQjwttWcBRCuhYjhouveusIBEiQAwjy8IO5HqroXrrMNd1VsmV-kLjD7UkweODs2sBdxc5_y6FPw_wcB 24v at 9.2A
  7. Temperature is set on the um2, not cura. Select the tune menu, you'll find it.
  8. Well guys, I have not yet voted because I'm not yet certain what I'm voting for. To just turn up and meet a lot of other people who happen to own Ultimakers is not enough. Ultimaker needs to be there in an official capacity. This means bringing along and demonstrating printers much as they do at trade fairs, but in addition maybe bring along prototype machines to show the direction they are going and what we can expect in the future. Even if some ideas never come to fruition it would be cool to see. Also - important one this - Spare Parts we can purchase, nozzles, heaters etc. This means the
  9. If you can persuade your gf to accept bronze instead of gold - go for it, you'll never find better.
  10. Does anyone have an idea when Colorfabb will release this?
  11. Everyone seems to say so, but I'm not so sure of that. My Up printer uses a head mounted extruder and produces excellent quality prints. Also at the MACH exhibition at the NEC last month I saw the Leapfrog creatr. This has two extruder motors mounted on the head. Didn't see it printing though so no idea on quality. It may need an acceleration tweak on the UM but I see no insurmountable problems. I had been considering Gregwar's design.. . then Ian comes along with the Dragnet and teases with a head mount version :-P
  12. Absolutely! I've been considering this one by Gregwar. But your dragnet really appeals to me ... I'll wait for it. ..... .. . . . Waiting.. . How are you doing? still waiting.... ... .. . . . :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile:
  13. Bronze is not particularly expensive, around 10GBP/Kg in the UK. The cost will be in the processing needed to turn the bronze into a fine enough powder and get it mixed with the PLA to a high enough quality not to jam our printers. Expect the final price to be very expensive.
  14. I assume you mean one long extrusion here anchored at both ends like the existing bowden, rather than multiple segments? An alternative idea is https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker2-on-the-top-extruder-mod by Gregwar
  15. There is an official experimental update from Ultimaker, as well as a number of other designs. Here is GR5's http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/4393-ultimaker2-feeder-system-improvements-and-ideas/?p=49802
  16. Yep. Great idea. http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/4912-ip-camera-to-keep-a-remote-eye-on-your-ultimaker/
  17. I'm getting the same on the XP machine I use for 3D printing. When multiple models are on the build plate, only the first is selected/hi-lighted. The others cannot be selected. This happens on 13.10, 14.01 and 14.03. Changing from 32bit colour to 16-bit (and vice versa) makes no difference. On a Win7 machine everything works fine on all the same versions.
  18. I've used Faberdashery Arctic White with great success on my UM2.
  19. Heh heh. Thanks to some help from a couple of moderators, I've had a name change! Cheers guys.
  20. [Glum] At home now and measuring 0.36Mbit download speed. It's really slow tonight and I'm drooling again over a satellite broadband system. [Glum]
  21. 4mbit is luxury. I get just 1mbit at home and before I changed ISP I was only getting 500kbit (I'm 6.5km down copper wire from the exchange). I've considered getting a 20mbit satellite system but its soooo expensive. On the plus side, I too have endless green fields and fenland to walk in And I've just measured 75mbit here at work.
