  1. Thanks for the heads up Jerooney. Look forward to this, Cheers
  2. Was working on a few models this morning, work on one close down open cura again work on the other. Left one open for 20mins and it had gone up to the below. Cura open, with part sliced and is in layer view model. UM3 is on network but no files have been sent to the machine. Its happened a few times, where windows shuts down cura on its own as it said you have run out of memory. Even our CAD software with a large assembly open doesn't consume this type of memory and Simplify 3D is running simultaneously at only 4.1MB with the same part in layer view.
  3. Hi, Just wondering if there is a feature anywhere to change the layer height for support. I would like to print in 0.1mm layer height for the printed part, but the support i would like to up this to 0.2mm to speed up the print time. Is this possible i cant seem to find reference to this with all the customisation tabs open. Thanks for the help Cheers Nigel
  4. Hi, Having issues with Cura 2.5.0 taking massive amount of memory. Any ideas how to fix, Thanks
  5. Hi Guys, Has this been fixed yet as i am having he same issue on nearly all prints running the latest firmware and software? Thanks
  6. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone else has experience with the Z Hope when Retracted function in Cura 2.4. I have it set to 2mm but cant see this happening during printing, Any ideas? Thanks
  7. That's one of the things that can happen if what @xeno proposes is the problem. Also what's the room temperature? Printer has an enclosed top and door, maintains around 30C inside the build volume.
  8. Hi, No its happening at random points in 3 different print parts
  9. Hi Guys, At random our ultimaker 2+ has been failing prints. Could you please let me know if anyone has seen this before and what we can try to stop it. Material is HD Glass http://www.formfutura.com/hdglass/ Thanks Just another failure we have also had was in the infill zone. Outer shell is perfect but infill / support is tragic. Close up of area.
  10. Design it so the end user can close it up, this should be a must, nearly all other high end 3D printers are closed systems from many other brands, there must be a way otherwise no other company could have a closed system other then the patent owner or licensed to other companies. UM3 should be a high end solution at an affordable price, this must be a door somewhere
  11. There is always a way around an enclosed unit if Stratasys has a strong hold on it. Make the front door a spare replacement part, or have a 3rd party company sell one. Problem solved
  12. Bigger build volume is a must 400x400x400 easy to outgrow the UM. 300mm is not a big change. A complete revamp on support, biggest let down with the current UM2 is any overhanging surface turns ugly. Need a water soluble support so it can build a complete surface that can support the print. Not just lines or grids ( grid is near impossible to remove ) Dont expect to have any kind of working surface from areas with overhang. Dual 3,4 or more extrusion points, largest print to date took 143hrs, way to long. LCD screen much bigger one then current. You should be able to see a rotating 3D m
  13. Hi Guys, Im wondering if there is any way of getting a more uniformed lower layer like whats seen on the outside of the model, mine seems to have no overlap and im not sure why. I am also getting melted PLA on the fine detail areas at the point. I have tried increasing minimum layer time from 0 to 6 to 10s. With 10 you get stringer build up as the nozzle sits in one spot waiting on each layer. Is there anything i can change im my setting to make this work better. Please see photos below for bottom layer and setting
