  1. Yes , the UM3 will run the CC core, though not officially supported. This is because the feeders are not hardened, and will wear when you use a lot of filled, abrasive, materials. You can upgrade the UM3 with 2 bondtech feeders, but unless you already have an UM3 this is a bit silly as it would bring you up to the price range of an S3 (which has the hardened feeder)
  2. Yes, no problem at all, the head on the GO is the same as on the Ultimaker2 (and yes I have one on my GO) And if you're upgrading, I would also change to this fan setup... https://www.youmagine.com/designs/um2-dual-fan-shroud
  3. Ok, thanks to you I dusted of this thing I had almost forgotten about, and of which I'm pretty sure it's the nr.1 waste of money in my life 🙂 though I did get it to work, it's more or less unusable, during scanning it somewhat randomly will scan or not, It's almost impossible to move the scanner to the tiny distance window where it will scan. Also the result is crap.... To get 3 scans I had multiple errors, and needed to reboot the software once... just a few examples.. I did not look into the option of using the device
  4. ahhh, I have one but didn't use it for ages... I just downloaded the software, and entered the licence code from here; https://www.fuel3d.com/scanify-closure-notice/ I installed on Win10 and it accepted the code, and started without error. I have not tried a scan jet, but probably give it a spin tomorrow. At what point did you get the error?
  5. one request, on some of my printers, like my home made GO, I use "line width" to set the nozzle size, so I would like to use {line width} in stead of {machine_nozzle_size} would be much appreciated if you could add it...
  6. Absolutely love it @ahoeben thanks again !! specially the printer name is great as i have a few printers based on the same Ultimaker printer profile, no need to tinker in the json files anymore..
  7. So basically select any material with a somewhat similar printing temperature..
  8. Superhero's never die... ** early "Mark2" dual print...
  9. if it's structurally ok I think it is worth it, you can make it as cheap or expensive as you want (or can afford) First thing you can do is measure resistance of the bed itself, the PT100 inside (the temp sensor) should be around 108 ohm at room temp. The Heater part around 3,9 ohm if I remember correctly. I think motors hardly ever break, so its probably the stepper driver on the board. If the machine is as old as this one it will have a 5th driver on the main board you could remap this motor to (more info in this forum) But first simple swap 2 motors and rule o
  10. The way I do it manually heat the core by going into the menu and set the temp (in the menu the dots on the top right corner, out of my head, not near a machine now) and manually push fillament (open lever of the feeder and just push) I assume there's also a move material function in the menu somewhere but can't check now and never use it myself.
  11. I like what you're trying to do but the results are not the best jet. Sometimes the answers are unrelated to the issue or plain wrong. See enclosed a sample answer that came up on a question on surface blobs... The comments on infill % are pretty silly imho
  12. Speed is always a trade-off with quality. If you don't need dual extrusion the um2 is faster than the 3 or 5 simply because the head is more light weight. The ability to use pva supports, more material types, and the ease of use make the 3 and 5 a more flexible choice. Owning both I still use the um2 a lot for single material prints.
  13. Also very helpfull; https://ultimakernasupport.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004339946-XY-Axes-Parts-Belts-Pulleys-Motors- https://www.youmagine.com/search/designs?utf8=✓&search=alignment&state=9
  14. tried the 4.2 version, all seems fine, thanks again !!!
  15. Ultimaker only provides profiles for officially supported combinations, which is pretty limited, but you can use the CC0.6 perfectly on the Ultimaker 3 , or with many non supported materials. The easiest is usually to select a 0.4 profile (with the AA0.4 selected as core) for the material you want to use, and change the line width to 0.6 (or just below 0.6 as Ultimaker would do it), depending on the material and speed you may also need to slightly change the printing temperature and do a few test prints, but usually the 0.4 profile is a pretty good starting point. Be aware t
  16. Je, de driver op het moederbord zal wel stuk zijn.. Er zijn meerdere soorten bordjes in omloop. de oudere Ultimaker2 bordjes hadden altijd 5 drivers (xyz,e1 e2) omdat ze voorbereid waren op dual extrusion. Toen duidelijk werd dat dat nooit zou gaan gebeuren voor de UM2 heeft Ultimaker op een gegeven moment bordjes gebruikt waarop de 5e chip niet meer werd geplaatst. Heb je een bordje met 5 chips, dan zou je volgens mij de ongebruikte E2 in de firmware kunnen mappen als Y motor. Wellicht kan iemand anders je helpen, in dit forum zijn wel voorbeelden te vinden van het compilen
  17. The prime tower is a little tower that prints between material change/layer change and will prevent polution from one material into the other. You can select it in Cura in the dual extrusion settings.
  18. the CC is absolutely fine for PLA imho, like you say just take the 0.4 profile and take it from there...
  19. The argument after the introduction of the UM3 has been that creating the matching profiles for all material types was the delaying factor. While I understand that for a few months, the UM3 is almost 3 yr's old now... so a complete line up of core's would be nice. I personally like the 0.6 so much I drilled out a AA0.4 before the CC0,6 was available.
  20. While the cc0.6 is great it's pretty pricey... So availability of a 'normal' 0.6 core would be a nice addition to the lineup. Specially considering the um3 feeders can't handle abrasive material anyhow...
  21. I just did a quick testcube using mine (also on S5) and it prints just like any other core. I must add that my hardcore is an early one (from the early days of the UM3), which I know was build using original UM core parts, so I guess in the meantime 3dsolex switched to all own produced parts if you say yours is moving more difficult than a normal core. Did you contact 3dsolex about it? That's what I would do first..
  22. yep, try again with a bit bigger towers, and as @gr5 mentioned So don't place them at the back, but next to the small dot's on your main object, so while printing the tower some airflow goes onto the main print.
  23. I think a new single core Ultimaker printer, with a core but a much lighter head than the UM3/S5 would definitely make sense. But as @ahoeben mentioned the only people who know won't disclose anything until it's there. My gut feeling is it will not happen but that's pure speculation. In the meantime, if the UM2+ is on the boundaries of your budget why not get a 2th hand? the machine is super reliable and if you reserve a little budget for spare parts it will serve you for years.
  24. Ok first... I have no real clue about the technique behind cura, but I’m thinking cura has the option to define forbidden area’s of the platform, so perhaps that’s current functionality you can use? You can define the area’s in the printer definition file.
