  1. Are you saying you can boot from the USB port on the front? Where did you download the firmware file from?
  2. It's getting worked out, I'm in an email thread with Valcrow at the moment.
  3. I've sent an email to UM support, I'll send an email to shop3d too.
  4. Yeah, I've left it on for an hour waiting for something to happen. It's just the fan noise and then nothing.
  5. I don't think I fully clarified this, but the machine doesn't turn on at all. There isn't a menu to restore from. Any other ideas? I'm still stuck, and I don't think support will get back to me until Monday (which feels so far away). Thanks for sticking with me on this!
  6. That was one of my first thoughts, but the UM3 doesn't have a USB B port. How would I even flash the firmware? I think I also read you can't use the thumb drive to flash firmware.
  7. Yesterday, I got my UM3, and after I set the machine up I saw that there was a firmware update that the machine could install by itself. The UI was rather sluggish, so I decided to let it update to see if it helped. I came back later to see that the screen had gone black, and the print cores were glowing as if they were in a cooling cycle. After an hour, I realized that waiting wouldn't do any good, so I rebooted the machine, and everything was fine - It installed a motion control package and then went back to normal. Satisfied, I turned off the machine and went to bed. I turned the power switch on this morning, and after hearing a fan turn on and quickly back off, the machine did nothing. I've tried everything I can think of, (including unplugging everything and plugging the UM3 in again), but nothing has worked. The fans still turn on for a second when I turn on the power switch, but that's the end of it. What should I do? Thanks for reading. Update: This problem was solved by removing the wifi board (under the cover for the Olimex boards). I still don't know why, but that's fixed everything.
  8. Thanks for the orientation help. By the way: I'm not looking to make a lego-compatible brick, just something that fits within itself. This isn't for any practical application, just for fun.
  9. Hi, I started using autodesk inventor a day ago, and made a faux-lego brick just for the sake of it. I'm away from my 3d printer for a bit, and was wondering if anyone would be willing to print them off and show me pictures of the results, including wether or not they work. If anyone's up to it, here's the file: https://www.mediafire.com/?peadbet3i1txi31 *NOTE: You may have to scale these up in cura. I have no idea why, but my models are ending up very small when exported. The bricks are supposed to be 20x40mm large, if that helps. Thanks!
  10. Thanks for all the suggestions, I'll have to give them a try.
  11. Wow, Just saw that I forgot to link it. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:629694
  12. I'm working on a little project and i need this handle to print. Seeing how weird of a shape it is, it's printing a little odd. I've tried printing it as is and upright with support, but the former lifted off the bed as it had very little holding it down and the latter was pretty deformed. Would using a brim and printing it on its side help? EDIT: I'm an idiot. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:629694
  13. I saw a post similar to this a couple months ago, but it didn't have too many replies. So, what would you love to see? Personally I think full colour printing would be brilliant.
  14. I see. I'm printing in PLA, so doing what you've suggested shouldn't be a problem.
  15. Hi, I've recently been doing a lot of modeling that needs a lot of trial and error so I have to reprint a lot of parts. It's a quick process, but having to wait for the printer to heat back up is really taking a toll on my free time. Is there a way to keep the printer hot between two prints? I usually turn my printer off when I'm not using it so it shouldn't have any problems with being hot while idle for too long. Thanks, Superslimeboy
  16. I'm a tad late to this discussion but I've got a UM2 in Alberta.
