    Selling my 2+

    sent you a message
  2. With pain in my heart I have decided to sell the 2+. Numerous reasons that I will not get into here, but nothing to do with the quality of this excellent printer! I have about 100 print hours on it. Original packaging. Comes with 16 rolls of ColorFabb PLA, and the original silver Ultimaker PLA. Some of the ColorFabb colors have not even been opened. Printer is located in Oregon, USA. Asking price for whole package is 2300 USD. Net to me Paypal fees, insurance and shipping on buyer. Let me know if any questions. Thanks, P

    What PLA filament?

    sorry for a late reply....didnt have much time recently for my 3D hobby. So far i love Colorfabb...no regrets. I tried a few colors and they all worked out fine

    Why did it not stick to the bed?

    i have no idea what happened...but after restarting and using the glue that I received with the printer things are looking better... in past few days I printed many things without the glue without any issue!

    haha....am sure there are. As a european I can say there are good and bad things about the USofA!

    Why did it not stick to the bed?

    So in winter, how do you get proper ventilation if the window is not open? By doing this temperature will drop.... I have lots to learn, and honestly I dont know how to avoid the above situations you mention. I have not closed the window and am trying again...
  8. I have been asking myself the same questions.... What printer? In all honesty I am not as hardcore as some others in this community that actually use the printer professionally or semi pro. I am a true rookie with a very steep learning curve. For me...printer had to provide good quality, i wanted to to be open source, and it had to look nice. I looked at a number of them, and in the end waited for CES to see what it would bring. As soon as I heard 3D systems was stopping with their consumer printers and U2+ was launched I placed the order and never looked back. So far I love it. Is it more expensive that some others...yes it is...but I see the value so far in community and the quality of the prints that I never imagined were possible! There is a reason why so many top companies and universities use Ultimaker...

    Why did it not stick to the bed?

    sorry....5C was outside and window was only open maybe 7-8cm... ambient was for sure above 15C
  10. So I wanted to try an overnight print. Let it start its 14+ hour journey yesterday evening and upon waking up at 7am this morning this is what I found.... Print size: 78/45/101mm...so a bigger robot! Robot was moving around on the heated bed....it didnt stick. As you can guess I didnt use the glue.... Any idea why this happened? Could it be room temperature that caused it? We dont have heating overnight and I did leave one window a little open. Overnight outside temperature drops to 4-5C. Please advise. In mean time, I started another print. Thanks! ...no idea why its turning the photo...

    Looking for tips on how to do this

    ahaaa...so in Cura I would need to design two things over each other and then delete the bottom part and only save the letters...then it will start print where it should, right?

    Thanks. I have lots to learn! No idea how to do this...and didnt know you can change the material in the middle of the job

    Looking for tips on how to do this

    also...I would love to maybe have the letters stick out instead of be carved in as current. is there a way to make the body in red and letters in white using the U2+?
  14. I have a photo (see below) of something pretty simple that I would like to create a 3D print of. I tried importing into Cura (see below), and think it would work. Is there another way on making this happen? Any other suggestions? Thanks, P
