  1. -Switching off is not necessarily intended there.- You mean that I can put the printer in some kind of sleep mode?
  2. Thank you so much for sharing that, it helps me a lot to feel more secure about the purchase. It surprises me a lot that this is not mention on the manual.
  3. Hello. I just got my new Ultimaker S5, de one with the U logo instead of the robot (I like the robot better) =( Anyhow, I want to ask about the process and boot time of the printer, since I came from an Ultimaker 2, the first time I turn the printer I have to be honest I tought it was broken, because the printer turn on the screen first, then turn everything off, then the screen comes back and the the chamber gets light up, after that the chamber gets almost no light, then the screen starts to flicker, turns off and the turns on back again with all the printer, that pro
  4. Good day to you all. I wanna know if there´'s a way to make the printer to extrude filament before reversing/changing the material. I'm using an all metal E3D V6 and I'm having problems every time that I want to change filaments, it just get stuck, the only solution that I find do far is to extrude some filament first then lunch the change filament option. Do I need to change some parameters on Marlin to make this permanent? I'll love to use the same menu option inside the printer. My machine is an Ultimaker 2. Thanks.
  5. I just download and install Cura 15.06.01 on my PC Windows 8.1 and I can´t update my Ultimaker 2 firmware, it just stay in the "Starting firmware update, this may take a while", the progress bar shows no update and it has been the same for 1 hour. Does anyone knows what could be the problem?
  6. Hello, I was having terrible under extrusion problems on my brand new Ultimaker 2 The I add a filament filter/ioler whit a little bit of canola oil and that take all the demons out of my UM2 I hope this help to those how are having trouble whit under extrusion. TIP: Whit canola oil I can actually see where the filament was getting stuck inside the feeding tube.
  7. Thanks Neotko, I checked the advance settings and reset all values to default and that correct the problem. But what did you mean by "speed it's specific for each finish"
  8. Hello, I have an Ultimaker Original Plus for almost two months, everithyng was fine until today. I was trying to print a file that will take 36 hours to complete, I leave the machine alone for 8 hours and when i returned the printer was at 1% of the job, and printing very, veeeery slow. When printing it makes some normal moves at normal speed, but in some points it slows too much This is a screen shot of my settings: The advance settings remain untouched. I also want to mention two things, before I started the print I update Cura to 15.02.1 and re install the printer firmware, then I n
  9. I all ready do a little research on this Direct Drive system for the Ultimaker, I'll be honest whit you, for me It's seems a huge improvement over the short belts, but at the same time I think that it needs some more tweaking that just adding some connectors. In your experience. How difficult it's this mod? It's just simple plug and play?
  10. Thank you guys for the answer and tips. Definitely I will start to look on to this GT2 convertion, now that you point me on the right direction it's seemsn very doable for my level of skills. Thanks anon4321, with Jopnny Bischof suggestions and this all I need to do now is buy those things, I will order those parts and do a comparative between better quality MXL pulleys and GT2 system. I think that we all ready know that the GT2 system it's better, but for some beginners like my self maybe the MXL swap could a little easier, but since the UM2 go for the GT2 components it's defini
  11. I was looking for this option to, but I have no luck finding a related post or topic in order to know what things to buy and how to do it. Do you have this mod on your Ultimaker?
