    UM2 makes rattling sound when moving on X axis

    I'm having a very similar issue but the creaking sound appears to be coming from the stepper on the left side which controls movement on the Y axis. Over all my U2 is printing well but considerably much louder than it has ever been and It sounds like a creaking floorboard in an old house. I'm concerned this will lead to serious problem later. someone recently posted a topic about what kind of general maintenance is needed on these machines. The response given was that oil on the rods and grease on the z screw was all that is really ever needed but for those of us with older machines can anyone recommend a deeper dive into maintenance and refurbishing? I don't mind replacing any parts if needed.

    Is the search feature broken?

    how long has search been down? I just started having some issues and need to search on a few more things. I hate posting new topics when the answers are already in here somewhere.
  3. I can't search for anything on the site or in the forums. Nothing happens when I fill in the search field and click the magnifying glass or hit enter. Mac, PC, Chrome, IE and Safari
  4. Is there an official part replacement for this issue? The upgrade kit wasn't cheap and it seems inevitable it will happen to everyone. Super glue and hope doesn't sit well with me.
  5. Anyone else having a problem with the search function on this site? It doesn't work at all for me across different computers and browsers. A ran into an issue where I was getting under extrusion because the nylon gear on the feeder stepper moved to the tip of the axle where it starts to slip. I pushed it back and it ran fine but now my confidence on running long prints is shot. This is a pretty big flaw in the design of the upgrade kit, is there a replacement part available?
  6. Cura 2.3.0 PC Overhangs in red are showing up on the top of this one file / model not the bottom, even after rotating. My other files seem to be ok. [/media]

    ULTIMAKER 3 (DUAL EXTRUSION?)

    Where is the NYC launch Party at?
  8. just did the upgrade, a bit daunting but I got through it. I forgot to do the Firmware upgrade when I was done and the new feeder motor was reversed. Updated and it's working beautifully.
  9. anyone in the U.S. able to purchase the upgrade Kit? Everywhere I look I'm told it's 2 weeks out.
  10. what are the US distribution channels for the Upgrade kit?

    CURA version confusion

    Still confused, not counting beta releases can someone explain the version numbers that identify where the new Cura begins and where the old Cura was at the time new Cura was released . Is the old Cura still getting updates? do they get updated version numbers? When the new Cura was released it was missing too many features on the Mac version and the PC version wouldn't install at all for me so I have been using the old version. I would like to check in to see if any progress has been made but I don't understand the version designations.

    Sharing some exciting news: the Ultimaker 2+

    I was hoping they would upgrade the design to center the nozzle which would increase build volume and provide even cooling. The offset nozzle don't make sense if dual extrusion is never being implemented.

    Post processing your 3D prints

    I have been testing out Sculpt Nouveau patina's on a large Bronzefill piece i'm working on and came across this video on how to turn any material you print into a metallic part that can then take a patina. Also the tip about using Abranet is interesting, I'm going to give that a try. http://www.kevincaron.com/video_detail.php?id=331

    Cura 15.06 / 15.04: Spiralized Vase, Stutter Scar

    I would be so happy if this was something that could be fixed. I never understood why Spiralize would have a Z scar as it's slowly increasing the z height the whole time. I gave up on this feature because of the scar.
