  1. This is the post I've been looking for. Currently having the same issues and banging my head against the wall. I have a large print which takes approx 17 hours and I'm on the 3rd attempt but am learning with each trial. What I've learnt so far. 1st Print failed due large holes in the print. I believed that these were caused by too thin a surface thickness (6 layers) and low % infill (15%) was causing holes. 2nd print (currently running) Based on some research I decided to increase the surface thickness to a magic 10 layers and the infill from 15 to 30%, however this was pushing my build

  3. Hi Porter and everyone, Like Porter I've just received my UM2 a couple of days ago, and am located in Ireland, so Hello!. However I'm on the other side of the country, in Waterford. Glad to see that there are a couple of machines on the island. Let me just say What a machine! First impressions. Opened the box late at night (normally, not a good idea when setting up a machine you are unfamilar with) Unpacking, reading the manual and setup took about 45 min First print was unsuccessful, due to bad build platform leveling, my fault. Aborted it immediately. Adjusted the platform again ...
  4. Hi braddock, I had the same frustrations as you a see thread http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/2142-poor-customer-service/ so I know what youre going trough, but if your order is marked paid and shippement ready, there should be no problems as they've accepted your payment and your order is queued, and will hopefully be dispatched as per the shipping schedule http://umforum.ultim...ad-time-update/. I know that once I cooled down and got information on my order I realised that I had to cut the people at Ulitmaker some slack. They are a small group who are the victims of there own
