    Version 1.0


    Time to move on, enough Pokémons printed for friends Instagram post here!
  2. Hey guys, My UM2 is located at my office. In general the UM2 is quite silent so I won't complain. But I was wondering, is there a way to turn of the "beep" when the machine is retracting?

    3D Skull

    Version 1.0


    This is a small present for a friend. Skulls are a popular request from my friends it seems. Can't wait for the Pokémon requests (they are already in...)

    Pokémon gifts for my nieces.

    Version 1.0


    Printed these 2 Pokémons with 25% infill so their weight is enough to act as real statues for my nieces. They love it! Instagram post here.

    Lovely Jack-O-Lanterns!

    Version 1.0


    Here are my Colorfabb dutch orange PLA/PHA Jack-O-Lanterns. (the big one was scaled 350%, other one 250%, 150% and the small one is 100%) All together +100 hours of printing and 120 meters of filament. The bottom of the big one is 50 meters. I bought some led tea lights to fit in. (in the big one there are 4 led tea lights) settings were : (depending on model) 0.1mm to 0.15mm layer height 30mm/s to 50mm/s print speed 250 mm/s travel speed infill 10% to 20%

    Maker Faire Robot Action Figure in PLA

    Version 1.0


    Maker Faire Robot Action Figure in PLA
  7. I used Octoprint for several months but I recently switched to Repetier Server (https://www.repetier-server.com/) combined with a raspberry pi3 and the 7" Touchscreen. There is also a repetier iOS app which sends me a notification when my print is finished or when there was an error. I'm using a no-ip.biz domain, opened the correct port on my router for the raspberry pi and I was set to go. I couldn't be more happy with this solution. Octoprint looked a bit oldskool compared to Repetier server. I'm sending gcodes wireless from my macbook to my printer and start the print. Works like a charm!

    Colorfabb Steelfill

    yes, I'm using S3D though. flow = 105% retraction = default (4,5mm & 25mm/s) layer = 0,25mm heated bed = 50 C° print temp = 210 C° cooling = 50% print speed = 50 mm/s travel speed = 200 mm/s Those settings gave me this result : I had a another awesome print with steelfill but it got broken during post processing It's a pretty amazing filament but it's also pretty expensive to play around with.

    filament leaking around the nozzle

    Hello, You are posting in the wrong forum, this is for the UM3 owners. About your issue. You could try to heat the nozzle up to 200°C and remove the nozzle to clean all the filament that got stuck on your olsson block. Also clean your nozzle while it's warm, but don't burn your fingers. Screw your cleaned nozzle back to the olsson block and tighten it while it's 200°C hot to make sure there is no filament blocking it. Good luck

    Ultimaker 3 Front Panel Display Died Today

    It was worth a shot...but no go. :-( Thanks for the suggestion though. The ironic thing is that the display would be just readable if I could turn off the LEDs...but they are so bright they wash out what little backlight the control panel is emitting. damn... I hope your reseller gives you a proper solution very soon.

    Ultimaker 3 Front Panel Display Died Today

    I had the same issue with my UM2+ a few weeks ago. Except my display was not blurried out, it had mass artifacts on the display. (full of mini blue squares) I thought "omg now I need to get my printer in the car and drive to the reseller and wait a few weeks before I'll have it back" But I reinstalled the most recent firmware with Cura and my problem was solved. Maybe you can try that?
  12. hello, Topic says it all right? I was reading some articles about wifi enabled SD cards and it seems those cards are more reliable than a few years ago. Anybody who has experience with these wifi sd cards and an Ultimaker? http://techpp.com/2015/04/28/wifi-sd-cards-camera/ http://bestwirelessroutersnow.com/best-wi-fi-sd-memory-card/ Just checking because I've ordered the new macbook pro 15" and it has no SD card slot anymore :( I know there are adapters available but still, wifi would be better http://www.apple.com/shop/product/HKR62ZM/A/sandisk-extreme-pro-sd-uhs-ii-card-usb-c-reader cheers

    Thanks for the tip, I'll give Reptier-Server a try Are you using a Raspberry Pi to control you UM2?

    How to fix warping

    I'm having great succes with the buildtak "spatula" to remove my prints from the buildplate. (equipped with buildtak also) https://www.buildtak.eu/product/buildtak-spatula/ This really is a great tool

    Afstand van de nozzle tot het printbed.

    Ik merkte nu pas het NL forum op, handig Anyway, ik vroeg mij af hoe dicht de nozzle eigenlijk tegen het printbed moet komen bij de calibratie? Mijn ervaringen leert mij dat de nozzle beter ietsje verder van het printbed kan staan dan dat je het echt met een dun papiertje tracht te calibreren? Ik zag trouwens in de support sectie van UM dat ze een karton kaartje gebruiken om wat resistentie van de nozzle te voelen. Ik gebruikte tot op heden 80gr papier, maar dat is precies té dun om perfect te calibreren... Ik gebruik nu business kaartjes van de mezelf en het resultaat bij het printen is een pak beter. Hiervoor ramde mijn nozzle door de prints en werd het soms een pudding bij het printen van multiple objects. wat zijn jullie bevindingen hierin?

    Ultimaker 3 print quality

    @foehnsturm very nice print is that, how much grams or meters of PVA you needed to support this?

    Ultimaker 3 print quality

    I would like to see some of the high res prints of the UM3 too From what I saw until now, the print quality of the UM3 is not much higher than the UM2+.

    Did anyone try the new Advanced 3D Printing Kit?

    I know.. Sander knows.. and it's super easy to now ramp up my posts @sandervg, awesome that sounds like a good answer. also, this seems to not be a double post! Ow yes, you did it again
  20. Understood, I was one of the victims with the bad silver UM PLA, that's why i'm not a fan of it anymore... And also I got the same results with ICE PLA But you are right it should be included in the filaments directory.

    Did anyone try the new Advanced 3D Printing Kit?

    @Korneel you know you're always double posting your replies?
  22. It's also one of the most expensive PLA you can find... I'll stick to my ICE filaments, I have 2,3kg for the same price as 750gr UM PLA http://www.trideus.be/nl/pla-brave-black-23kg.html

    general forum feedback

    @daid @nallath @sandervg True, developing a good search is not easy. But why don't you replace your current search engine with a custom Google search if you are not able to develop your own search? https://cse.google.com/cse/ Or do we hope new users find this thread and know your search is not working so they can start looking for answers on www.google.com ? My guess is you're losing many visitors with this way of working.
