    PVA not Sticking to PLA

    at the beginning the combination PLA/PVA worked like a charm, now im having adhesion problems (PVA printing on top of a PLA layer). is it related to hardware problems or is just the PVA filament is affected somehow by humidity (i store my PVA spool on a ziplock bag and TONS of Silica bags)
  9. Hello Forum, im printing the same file in both printers (u2, and u3) basically is an extruded HEXAGONAL grid. each cell has an 2 mm perimeter. the problem I'm having is that in the U2, the hex cells looks really like hexagon, the corners are really sharp. but the same file on the U3 the cornes are somewhat rounded... liking more like circles than hexagons.... both printers at 40mm/s. do i need to tweak the erg values on the U3/? many thanks in advance...

    U3 Stops to print randomly while printing with WIFI

    hey Daid: im using Cura 2.4 and the Firmware is the last stable version - 1) until now it only happened while WIFI printing. - 2) Yes, cura was Monitoring the Printer - 3) the Printer doesnt respond, ist frozen. - 4) since the Printer is frozen, any reading is impossible. - 5) im going to send the logs, i have to wait for the Problem to happen again, it is random.

    PVA not Sticking to PLA

    thanks, now it works better, but theres no other support material that can be dissolved in water? i mean after all, is not so easy to print with PVA, and what i hate most is that i need to clean the nozzle so often! because it doesn't sticks properly, the nozzle catches the PVA that wasn't attached properly to the layer, and it stays there in the outside of the nozzle and it turns dark and sticky.

    PVA not Sticking to PLA

    yes im using standard profiles for PVA, that means in numbers : speed 60 and temperature 225 C, which ones are you using?

    PVA not Sticking to PLA

    maybe using Scaffold there more chances of bonding?

    U3 Cores

    hello Forum. in the past (U2), it was a good idea to have a nozzle set for each the of material (PLA, ABS, and so on), because to the different material characteristics... now in the U3, we need to do the same? does anybody knows if printing normal PLA and Bronzefill with the same core will lead to problems, (i.e. clogs) best.
  18. esteban-pacheco


    thanks! it worked! but then for remote control of the printer then we will need to wait for that App? cheers!

    i got lost with this...

    i mean to buy a u3 build plate and use it with a u2+ what about the retractions options while printing on a u3? i think Im blind! i cannot find them on the menu screen!
  21. esteban-pacheco


    thanks for your answer... is there a website with little bit more detailed information? i mean how to setup that video stream.
  22. esteban-pacheco


    finally int arrived u3 :)and im soo happy...very awesome features... i have a few questions... theres a way to make the camera work faster?---> it is kinda slow.... i thought i can make speed runs with it... and there will be a way to control the printer remotely, i.e my mobile phone? up to now i only found that i can see what the camera sees trough Cura.... but, my printing is standing 30 Cm away from my computer... so its like... redundant... theres a way to adapt the u3 build plate to an 2+? any way of changing retractions speed and length while printing wirelessly from cura?

    hallo forum. i've readed the ability of the new U3 of detecting the kind of filament that is loaded (only spools from the brand Ultimaker). do you think that in a near future other materials from other companies can also be detected by the u3? because here in Germany waiting from 3 to 4 weeks to get spools from ultimaker... thats a long time when you take in count that theres filament companies that are sending their orders in two days time. waiting 4 weeks or 6 for a printer to arrive is smth different... but filament?

    l2k insulator

    entiendo, Al ponerle el I2k (que debe medir unos 2 mm en espesor) entonces lo único que tengo que hacer es regular la tensión del sistema ajustando los tornillos largos? utilizando esa pieza que esta en youmagine
