    Cura FAQ

    Are you on Windows? At first launch after Windows install, Cura is sometimes unable to connect to the engine. This can cause the slicing to remain at "preparing to slice". Restarting Cura should correct the connection problem.
  2. Yes, we're there! You can find us in Zone 2 in the EXPO Hall. We'll have really cool stuff to show you there, like a Z-Unlimited building some awesome custom towering prints, and the gumball capsule challenge. Come over and say hi!
  3. @SandervG is currently at Maker Faire Bay Area so I’m replacing him as the announcer of your favorite Ultimaker event Ultimaker Sessions Our next meetup, on May 30th in FabLab ProtoSpace in Utrecht, is going to be a special one! We’re going to kick off a new concept: from now on the Ulti-Evenings will be known as Ultimaker Sessions. We’re doing this because many of you have asked for Ulti-Evenings hosted nearer to you. That's why we’re now expanding these meetups globally, joining forces with our partners everywhere! We didn’t want to limit them to hosting sessions in the evening, so we've renamed it to 'Ultimaker Sessions'. You’ll also meet community members from 3DGBIRE and Makershop tonight, who will be running the first Ultimaker Session pilots in the UK and France! We’ll expand the program to other countries with more partners as we go along. The subject of tonight’s Ultimaker Session is the new Cura! Jeroen, our software specialist, will give you all a complete rundown of the new interface, new features and great possibilities that Cura now offers. Date: 30 - 05 - 2016 Location: ProtoSpace Utrecht Program 17.00 - 18.00 Arrival. You can also order food (10 euro pp, cash or card) 18.30 - 19.00 Kick-off Ultimaker Sessions 19.00 - 21.00 New Cura presentation We'd appreciate it if you would RSVP using Meetup: http://meetu.ps/2XmjqD Hope to see you there!
  4. Cool! What kind of data would you be able to collect / want to have from the e-NABLE prosthetics? I imagine that for the deeper stuff you'd also need to wire up separate sensors to all the moving parts to get real usage data, and that might make the design a lot more bulky?
  5. I found an interesting research paper posted online about microfluidics research (using extremely small fluid channels for research, to isolate and examine single cells for example) where they examined the possibility of creating microfluidics systems using FDM, specifically an Ultimaker 2 printer. Figured I'd share it with the rest of you all - it's not really my field, but seriously cool either way: Simple and Versatile 3D Printed Microfluidics Using Fused Filament Fabrication
  6. Joined the steam group, though I play few games on steam, because OSX. My 360 and Wii are gathering dust too now that I have a PS4. I'm waiting to see what The Division playerbase is going to be like; if it survives the first few months I'll probably take that up. I'm still considering picking up Destiny somewhere along the way to see what everyone's so excited about, but I'm more of a BF/CoD gamer and never really got into Halo online either. I did play the Battleborn open beta this weekend and that was a lot of fun. I figure either that or Overwatch will be my team shooter of choice when they're out.
  7. DATE: Thursday, January 7, 2016 LOCATION: Buddy V's, Las Vegas TIME: 6:30pm - 8:30pm Are you visiting CES, living in the Las Vegas area, or just happen to be partying on the strip this week? Drop what you're doing, because tonight we're getting together with 3DHubs and ColorFabb to bring you an evening of 3D printing themed fun and laughter. After all, it's CES time so there's lots of new things to talk about. Our new Ultimaker 2+ printers, ColorFabb's new nGen filament, 3DHubs' 25.000th hub. You know, the usual cool stuff So come on over and meet the Ultimaker, 3DHubs and ColorFabb teams! Sign up here: https://www.3dhubs.com/las-vegas/events/ces-meetup-2016
  8. Hey everyone! I know, I know, this is usually 's job, but today I get to do the honors! Don't fret, we'll return to your regularly scheduled community manager soon . The Olsson Block is currently a free gift with every new Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2 Extended we sell, and during that time we're running these 3D printing contests so those of you who already own a printer also have a chance of receiving an Olsson Block! And not just any Olsson Block, this is the special edition set that we're giving away. The special edition contains not just the regular set of nozzles that comes with the standard Olsson Block set, but also adds the big 1.0mm nozzle for super fast prints. So when you win you get: The Olsson Block itself 0.25mm nozzle 0.4mm nozzle 0.6mm nozzle 0.8mm nozzle 1.0mm nozzle and a screwdriver and socket to swap nozzles CHALLENGEA proton and a neutron walk into a bar. The proton says "I think I lost an electron. Help me look for it!" The neutron asks, "Are you sure?" The proton replies, "Yes, I'm positive."Sorry, I can only tell really terrible chemistry jokes, because all the good ones Argon. You've probably guessed it - for this week's contest we're going really small. Atomically small. We want you to print molecules, as tiny as possible! Grab excite's Molecule Construction Set here: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/molecule-construction-set Pick a molecule to create out of these atoms and start cracking to print it as small as you can. As always, the rule is that you have to print with an 0.4mm nozzle - apart from that, anything goes. Upload it in the Print section and show it off here! We'll choose a winner based on smallest size combined with print quality, but we do give major extra credit for picking more complex molecules and making them aesthetically pleasing. My H2O molecule, shown here as an example in a glass of H2O, is neither small nor complex so it's probably not a winner The other rules of the contest are pretty simple. Please read them carefully. RULES We know how you all love hacking and modifying, so we have only one guideline: it must be printed on an Ultimaker, with an 0.4mm nozzle. Besides that.. everything goes! Entries must be uploaded in the Print section. (Fill out your settings if you want. The winner agrees to share his settings at the end of the week). Share the link and a picture of your upload in this thread. Everyone can participate in every contest, but you can only win once. Photoshop is not allowed. You can participate until Sunday midnight CEST. EXTRA INFORMATION We'll choose a winner primarily based on size and print quality of the molecule - but complexity and aesthetics may sway our votes. We will announce each weeks winner on Monday in the corresponding thread on our forum, on our Twitter feed and Instagram! WHAT DO I NEED TO PRINT? Grab excite's Molecule Construction Set here. Upload your entry here. And share your entry with us here below. Can't wait to see your entries!
  9. Version 1.0


    This is an example on how to upload your entry. This is not an entry to the contest. Print the smallest molecule you can! Do you want to participate in the contest and win a free special edition Olsson Block? You can participate here!
  10. Can I play too? It's not quite King Kong on the Empire State building, but hey
  11. @LePaul Omfg. Do want. Do you have a build topic on your R2 anywhere? I have so many friends I need to show that to.
