  1. And you said about diassasembling one yeah you might not want to do that when one of the colleges turned the power of at the mains whilst it was booted up we had a guy come in anyway to change the head 2500 : /... And he had to take the complete case of the machine to re flash the software and it's £90 callout per hour
  2. Stratasys printers arnt really a great thing to compare to something 1/8th the price Ofc you will get the major drawbacks like the filament is £175 per cartridge so that's x2 because you need a support cartridge to print which isn't an option you have to print with support but it has it's bennifits that it can be super precise and accurate that's why there so expensive I personally run a dimension 1200es but being industrial means there's no open source stuff available for them such as there is a fixed layer height of 0.254mm and for the print se it's 0.174 but sat here printing my friends ult
  3. This is a great idea this is how our printer 1200es sst prints abs it doesn't have a heated bed though it uses a heated environment by using heated fans to heat the build envelope to 70oc and has abs beds and this is where I though the bed on the rev 1 would warp this happens a lot on thin acrylic when doing a large engraving that would be my only worry why not have a metal bed cut and wait for it to raise to temperature ?
  4. New name Didnt like old forum name i use to use and the machine i cut with is made bu Universal Laser Systems so UniversalLSRS : ) i use a bigger one but names to long
  5. I just remembered about the creative commons and this was just something we did when the laser cutter wasn't being used and i understand that its not a good financially move to do individual controller boards and then buy custom laser cut cases for the ulti controller
  6. I am not a bot but i understand what you mean about being forward the first time you make a post but your right at the moment i am really busy building a reprap and busy laser cutting ultimaker parts under the sales forum etc but i am busy and i have fixed the issue with the cooling and its printing great until we ran out of filament .. but thanks for all the help so far!
  7. Xeno Posted Today, 06:18 PM The UM1 is (was) also sold without the laser cut parts, then why not the UltiController it saved €100,- on the kit, I wouldn't mind saving €20,- on the UltiController FIY just saw that the UM1 is € 361,- cheaper now, and even comes with Doodle3D, WOW Would you like to purchase an ulticontroler case?
  8. Unfortunately we don't know where to get just the boards from but I'm sure if you email ultimaker they can give you one with a discounted price or something along those lines some reprap sellers sell a board which works with the ultimaker it's just oversized compared to the ultimaker a board
  9. For sale I have 2 colours of acrylic left that I can use to make ultimaker controllers : Orange, Red You can have the normal ulticontroller engraved with a side message or no engraving. Any customizations or specific colours add +£4 shipping is £4 withing uk and the laser cut ulti controller costs £7.50 *controller not included* attatchments of cut controller.
  10. good points but reason why I didn't say it was not the best thing to say I built something and it didn't work properly right ? And the fan ideas quite good I'm might give it a try.
  11. I fixed the limit switch can you recommend a good one?
  12. I fixed that problem with the head crashing it was a connector loose and I want it because i broke the fan that came with it and I won't get one for 2-3 weeks and the printer I am use to using dosent use cooling fans this is it's way of waiting for the layers to cool and it does a pretty good job of it but as much as I want I would like it I don't have £32000
  13. What I mean is I don't want to try and make the plugin because I have had to make several beds for the ultimaker by crashing the head into the bed and melting the bed so I wanted to know could you do it for me since I think I'll keep getting it wrong and have to make new beds and replacement parts if you get what I mean
  14. Yeah I understand it all and that's really made it clearer for me but I wonder can you help me a bit further since I'm not cutting a 4th bed for this printer again it gets expensive after a while and I'm sure if you could help I could cut you some replacement parts as such?
  15. Hi Ultimaker forum i recently built an ultimaker for my friend and we have a Dimension 1200es SST and everytime it prints a layer it drops the bed and then raises it again this is because it has a sensor leveling system but we think it looks cool as hell and sounds cool and its mainly just for show but we have no idea howto do gcode since we only use it for cnc machines and so we thought to come to the ulti-forum for some help so if there is someone out there that could help it would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks!
