  1. I found the solution for this problem by double checking the models; The cutted hole had a manifold part of faces, caused by the cut and these faces should have been the other way around. Now, Cura reads the cutted hole as indeed a part of the model and I can print it wíth this hole, no matter what position.
  2. Dear All on the forum, Would anybody be at help for the following? I would like to print a mesh with a cutted hole inside (the model is good, watertight and so on) There is a setting in Mesh Fixes, stating "union overlapping volumes". I would like to have this ON (for another reason). If I turn the model, I can print it fine; wíth the cutted hole (see image 1) If I print the model in the preferred position, I have a problem printing the hole with this setting ON (see image 2). The hole gets visible again with the setting "union overlapping volumes" OFF (see image 3) The r
  3. Thank you @Emerald, your link is very helpful. Still I am missing information how to tighten the pulley connected most nearby the left stepper motor (photo attached) Shouldn't I have loosened it? Or do I need to tighten it befóre re-assembling the short -belt block sitting around it? Minke
  4. Dear all, Concerning my post how to solve shifted layer issue, I try to tighten the pulley on the left stepper motor (see photo pasted hereunder) I removed the metal shield, I loosened the whole mechanism, but I find difficulty to understand how I can tighten the pulley again? Is there some kind of manual or video or images where I can find the procedure to re-assemble it? I have a problem to reach the pulley with the hexagon screwdriver, how do I do that? Thanks for your help?
  5. Good day Geert, Thank you for your written advises; very clear and helpful I will focus on all given points and give it a try, let you know when I am done 😃 I will check áll the belts, other oil, and better ventilation to start with.. Concerning your off-topic question; for printing the more organic meshes, like bones, skull and figurines I use Meshmixer to generate support. I do this since I started 3d printing and I am very content with it. The result in close up looks fine; I can just break away the support without a problem. (The figurine showed is a model
  6. Dear all, Would anyone know what is the problem here? I made 3 times a good 15 hr print on my UM2E+ The 4th time the print suddenly showed a shift on the Y-axis, almost at the end of the print I marked the pulleys, the belts seem tight (so I did not change anything) The 5th print, came out good. The 6th print showed again a shift on the Y-axis, the same way as the 4th print, also the same height At the moment when it happened, I heard a sound, different from normal; a sound like what you hear when you connect with a usb to upgrade the firmware.

  7. Good day Bob, Thank you for your reply. On my Ultimaker 2E+ I checked three ventilators, all of them near the nozzle head. Do I miss a ventilator? What does IC mean? Thanks for your help
  8. Dear Adam, I am based in Arnhem, The Netherlands. I print mostly bones for musea and for reconstruction works (paleontology and paleoanthropology) Some timelapses have been made by filmcrews from NL, UK and Canada I also use my two Ultimaker printers for making sketchmodels of furniture designs.
