    Selling my Ultimaker 2+ Extended

    How many hours of printing does it have on it?
  2. Thanks Yellowshark, I've never encountered this and haven't had experience with items this small with such thin walls. I've passed along this info. to the customer. Cheers!
  3. I have this STL file from a customer that shows up correctly in Normal view, but it doesn't show most of it in layer mode and thus it doesn't print out correctly. Here's the STL file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8-rHbyHteY8bWl4blhzYnNqVE0/view?usp=sharing Any help would be appreciated.

    3D Printing lesson at school

    That's great! What did you decide to teach them over the 2 days?
  5. I've been venturing into longer prints (20-30 hours+) and have noticed the time it shows to complete it in Cura is usually an over estimation. While that is nice when it doesn't take as long, I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this? My most recent one happened with this Heatwave vase design that you get off thingiverse. The time Cura estimated was just under 48 hours, and it actually completed in 29 hours. That's a pretty big margin to be off by.

    Maker Faires?

    It's been awhile since I was here, busy with life and such. There's a maker faire coming up in November in Ottawa and I was wondering if Ultimaker is interested in getting representation at something like that? My printer has been running like a champ and I was wondering if attending and getting some exposure to Ultimaker is something they're interested in? Just a thought I was mulling around. Hope you all have had a great summer!
  7. Just curious, do you what the actual build volume is that the UM2 can achieve? I'd like to have that information, save me the trouble of running a bunch of tests.

    how to clean the hot-end from debris?

    Try using Brasso as another member suggested in a previous thread. @Cloakfiend - Have you tried the Atomic method for clearing your nozzle? http://support.3dverkstan.se/article/10-the

    Ticket system - does it work?

    Drill out a new kit? Why would you pay for that?

    Noise when starting a new layer

    Where do you switch that? Curious as the noise isn't really loud but I'm interested in anything that can reduce it.

    Strength of different filaments

    This is such a great thread, thanks to all who contributed to the testing!
  13. I've been printing this week with the clear XT, and no matter what temp I use it still comes out as a translucent white. It does adhere a little too well, and I let it completely cool to room temperature before I start to take it off. If it's at all stubborn, I pop it into the fridge for 15 minutes and then it comes off quite easily. Not sure what advice I can give you foehnsturm as the clear prints really well for me if I use a bed temp from 80-83 depending on where I'm printing on the bed. I found I would get some slight warping if I printed away from the middle, but increasing it a few degrees seemed to do the trick. The best results I had as far as layer adhesion is at 255-260, but my UM2 is all stock.

    Ultimaker 2 Start-Up Supplies

    Definitely an extra PTFE coupler and a spare nozzle as well. If you have the extra cash I would just get the hot end pack.
