Personal Information

  1. Thanks for the quick reply. I just love the fact that the PEI bulidplate doesn't need any additional ingredient like glue. Also, I don't like the glossy finish of the side that is attached to the glass buildplate. Anyway, the operation principle of the bed leveling seems to be a show-stopper here.
  2. Hi All, The best add-on I ever bought for my UM2+ was a PEI-coated aluminum buildplate with a thickness of 5mm [1]. This buildplate completely replaces the original glass buildplate. As I mainly work with PLA, this buildplate just solved almost all my issues with warping or lose parts. On top, it gives me a quite equally locking finish on all sides of the printed parts. Now, I got my hands on an UMS5. After the original aluminum buildplate was canceled, I was wondering if I could just get the same PEI-coated aluminum buildplate for the S5. There is no UMS5 option in the drop-down menu on the website but it is possible to provide custom dimensions. So basically, I would just need the exact dimensions of the buildplate and the locations of the screw holes. Question A: Does anyone have these dimensions at hand? Besides the missing dimensions, I am also not sure if this would work out that easily with the UMS5. There must be a reason why the original aluminum buildplate was canceled. Also, the automated bed leveling could be an issue. The buildplate would be bigger than the one for the UM2+, so there might be some significant deformation due to the thermal conditions. Question B: What problems could be raised from replacing the original glass build plate? Another option could be PEI sheets but I don't have any experience with these so far...

    Announcing Cura 2.7

    I just did a fresh install of Cura 2.7 on my new Macbook with macOS Sierra (10.12.6). It seems like Cura is automatically creating an 'AppData' folder in my home folder. The folder contains a 'Local/cura' folder with the log files 'stderr.log' and 'stdout.log'. This folder and files are always recreated when Cura is loaded. Is this intended or just a hard-coded Windows path?
  5. I wanted to ask the same question. I was pretty surprised to find a 15.04 version number after upgrading my UM2 to an UM2+ with Cura 2.1.3 und OS X. But it seems to be normal then. Could somebody please confirm this?!
