    UltiController SD Card slot broken

    Sorry for the late reply. No, I never solved the issue, I worked around and it works for me...

    Why does my print have tiny zebra stripes?

    You know nuthing John Snow.... but hey... SPOILER ALERT, I hope you are well, as he is not sooooo extremly well at the moment... just saying.
  3. where are you shopping? UMO+ is 995USD UM2+ is 2,499USD that is a 151% more if you're paying that much for a UMO+ you should find a new store. Well... yes, distributors make it interesting. In Europe: Germany, igo3d, UMO+ (incl. UltiC) 1.429,00 €. Italy (3ditalyshop, i guess UltiC included): 1195.00 €, Switzerland, digitec.ch 1499 CHF est. 1370.00 €... and so on... I am really surprised that it's relatively inexpensive in the USA?

    Help with STL model needed

    I used 123D Design very much. If you are a bitt more advanced, Fusion 360. But this is me, the re are many other packages.... just check the forum for threads about cad / modeling.

    Help with STL model needed

    Maybe try the STL instead? https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=8EA4064156DCB145!16864&authkey=!AJ9swrGO7O26huk&ithint=file%2cstl Still the same, says something like "File does not exist or is not anymore available".

    Help with STL model needed

    I don't think this will actually do what he wants, as it will probably just close the hole, as netfabb did... worth a try... Maybe it's even easier to re-create the thing in the application of choice. It does not look to complex...? Especially if you have the measurements, it might be better.

    Cura stuck on splash screen - log included

    It's either work OR play... not both, guys!
  9. @Beierxxx, I tried loading a gcode file today for the first time . It's the same here in 15.04.03. I created an gcode file with cura, saved the gcode file and re-openede it. It's supressing the bottom shell (in my case 8 layers + skirt) in the view. What's clear, it can not show you the model in normal mode / solid view, as there is no model loaded, what you see is "just" a graphical representation of the gcode path. Question, why are you loading the gcode file and not the stl? As the gcode file can not be mofified / saved with cura AFAIK.

    UM2 eating up PTFE couplers

    I think this was also the problem on my UMO, after changing the bowden tube and relaxing / adjusting the force (bowden pushing down and the peek pushin up) to be just right, I feel I have a smoother system. Since then I did at least not have any grinded couplers anymore.
  11. Very Interesting article, thank you Bertho.

    general forum feedback

    ...it is probably not getting any faster with you uploading huge snails
  14. ... I did it anyway tonight, ripped the old umo blocks appart (without actually destroing them), took out the bushing and replaced them... my printhead moves like jagger (again). So all good.
  15. Let's hope it's the motor, it for sure sounds like it...
