  1. I have the same problem now with my UM2 extended
  2. Suddenly my screen was black. When I opend the cover I saw that the flat cable was totaly broken. See picture. This is unbelievable. There has not been any movement because the print and the cover were tightend. AS Far I can see the cable was not fixed in the right direction (twisted) I think this is a fabrication fault and should be solved by Ultimaker. Please advise
  3. Ok I read the instructions, maybe I did it not properly. Bus what about getting the ABS off the sheet, like Nalith has a problem with too?
  4. OKE, Indeed it looks like a mess I think I will design the parts again in a more proper way. Thanks for your advice
  5. Not solved yet, It looked better then it was
  6. Dear Nalath, Now I have the assembly sliced in the right way. (see JPG) In stead of scaling in the 3D design Program, I did the scaling in Cura. I think the scaling in the dsign program coused the problems into Cura. Can this be right ?
  7. I made an assembly forom three parts. for processing in cura I made a part of the assembly and than a STL file. If I slide the parts seperately cura slides well (see attached JPG's) Wen I sliude them together there iare a lot surfaces missing (see attached JPG). Any idee what I am doing wrong ?
  8. The last days, my printer stops random during printing. I use the latest version of Cura and print from the SD card. I tryed sevrall things: First I formatted the SD card and let Cura recode the subject. Same Problem. Second I refressed the firmware. This was workiung. Next print nwas OK. Than I run another print, but than the printer stopped during Printing again. I refressed the firmware again, and the nextprint was OK. The following print went wrong again. Please help
  9. I bought a box with 25 adhesion sheets. After printng an object I was not able to get it of the sheet. I tried several things: heat the gals again, using water, put it in the freezer, etc. Nothing worked. To get the damaged sheet of the glas is a lot of work too.! The sheets are not cheap and I cannot believe that the designers only looked to the capability of the strength of sticking. The use of this product should be easy. Did i miss instructions or is the product not so good as i expected??
  10. Ok, then get rid of the base and use a raft. That will fix a number of issues. Stray Edges: These are lines that don't connect to anything. They don't form faces or surfaces. They just stick out going nowhere. Everything must form a face. And all faces must be connect to form a solid object (aka Manafold) Surface Borders: These are edges of a surface (or face) that doesn't connect to another face. A face is a two-dimensional object and by connecting all faces together, it forms a 3-dimensional object that can be printed. A Face that has a border means that one or more edges of that face doesn't connect to anything. So it just a floating face. Face Holes: This is pretty much like it sounds. Its a hole in a face. Which also results in a Surface Border. You can form holes in objects by joining faces to form a hole, but you can't have just a hole in a face. Hope that makes sense. Internal Face Edges: This can usually be overcome in Cura (ie: Cura can usually print objects with this error, but its better to fix it). A face has two sides: inside and outside. This helps tell the slicer (Cura) what to fill in and what to make a outside surface. When you have faces facing the wrong direction, it can confuse things up. There are apps on the internet, as well as some that can be downloaded to help repair your object. Make Printable is just one of them: https://makeprintable.com/ Hope this helps. Thank you very much fornal your effort!!!!! I partly repaired my design (indead, I made a mesh out of it due to many adjustments) and partly by "make it Printable" What an amazing aid is this program. I am Printing now. again many thanks
  11. Thank you for your analysis. The base is only to stick the object to the buildingplate. The errors, I do not understand. Have you any idee about the kind of errors?
