  1. Building an UM2 Extended clone vs. an UMO+ clone is no difference. Personally I would ditch the UM boards and use a Duet3D, or some other modern board. But if you look around there is a clone-v2.1.5 version of the UM2 board with removable steppers available. But given that it is a clone I would not buy it...it's a hit-or-miss kind of chance not worth taking imo. That said, using a different board means no more UM firmware...so it will no longer be a 1-1 clone. If you want to keep the UMO board and change stepper you can also build an UMO Extended...just make the side panels higher...all you need to change in the software config is the height of the build area. If you want an amazing extruder I can recommend the Zero Gravity Extruder. I, and a few more, have been using it for a long time and it is awesome...regardless if you are printing stiff or flexible filaments. Rods can be bought from many places...Misumi if you want the best...Robotdigg (or similar places) if you want to save some money. If you look at the Ultimaker 2 Aluminium Extrusion clone at Thingiverse you will find hints on where you can source material used to build an Ultimaker clone.

    Suggestion: Easy Change Nozzle Size

    Ok, found it, installed it, had to figure out where it was supposed to be, until I discovered that I need to go looking for hidden settings...and there are lots of them...oh my...but at least I have, finally, easy access to that setting... Still curious as to why everyone, especially the developers, strongly says that changing nozzle size is not needed and that changing line width is the same thing...

    Suggestion: Easy Change Nozzle Size

    This is utterly confusing... Why, if nozzle size is irrelevant, did you put it as a configurable setting in the machine settings? And, if nozzle size is irrelevant, how would you tell Cura to over-/under-extrude using a specific nozzle size? (Say I want to print with line width 0.3 using a 0.4 nozzle vs. printing with one width 0.3 using a 0.3 nozzle?
  4. This is a post to let you know that @gudo, the man who created some truly awesome mods for our Ultimaker's, has sadly passed away 😞 I didn't know him that well, but I wrote a few words over in another forum. R.I.P. @gudo!

    What happened to Ultimaker 2 go ?

    I agree. The lack of heated bed, and the fact that it never got a β€˜+’ upgrade like it’s bigger siblings, probably made it less interesting than it could have been.

    What happened to Ultimaker 2 go ?

    I think the Go was (is) a printer that you had to see/try before you understood the value it provided πŸ™‚ Too bad it was never upgraded like the other 2’s. Those β€˜+’ upgrades would have made it a superb printer.

    What happened to Ultimaker 2 go ?

    Everyone seems to want bigger, as in huge, printers these days so maybe it did not sell that well to justify keeping it as a product. Ultimaker also never updated it like they did with it's bigger brother (2+) so i'm not sure how much they really cared for it.

    Being "forced" to use Edge (Windows 10 + Edge) as my browser sometimes I have noticed recenly that when I have clicked on a notification and opened it in a new tab...when I switch to that tab scrolling no longer works. The page is "frozen"...neither the scroll wheel, the scroll list or page down/up works. Reloading does not help. But if I alter the URL and remove the "#comment-XYZ" and load the page scrolling works again. Not sure if it is this computer that is acting up...or the browser. But the fact is that it happens only on this forum...no other site I visit exhibits the same weird behavior.

    @SandervG This is the biggest downside to the new forum... Once you have clicked on the notification icon...all notifications are "marked as read" when you go back to that menu. Yes, they are still there...but you can't see which ones you haven't read.
  10. There are people using both E3Dv6 and UM2 print heads on UMO(+), me included (using an UM2 head on an UMO+). For the UMO it takes a bit more since the motherboard is not the same as on the UM2. But it is still doable. Here is some useful info if you want to take the UM2 route: I haven't used the E3Dv6 myself but one drawback seems to be that you can have issues printing PLA since it is an all-metal hotend. On the other hand, it allows you to use materials that requires high temps without worrying about a coupler that might be damaged.
  11. Building custom firmware for UMO(+) is dead simple...use @amedee's online builder...it covers most cases. It also contains a lot more features than the stock firmware. https://bultimaker.bulles.eu/
  12. All I saw was the extruder moving...and switching tools...not printing...moving it fast is not a big problem...printing fast...as in laying down plastics...without visual artifacts is a problem...and there is nothing about that in this video.

    I haven't thought much about it...but if I follow a notification link now it seems to work fine The pagination issue is more that you can't use pagination at all because it will scroll further than what the available screen area is...so you are forced to use arrows or the mouse...which is not as simple as pagination.

    Welcome to Ultimaker Cura 3.2 | Stable

    Yes, a better text with a working link to the configuration folder is a lot better. But, if Cura already crashed/failed to use the old configuration...what will happen when the user starts putting back that same "bad" configuration?
