    Sure nilrog you're right !  I had thought to this too,  it was just for discuss...:)


    Also we can’t make every version for every user. That could be so gigantic we will never get anything done. Also, let’s do first one thing that works, then let the opensource evolve :D


    I know...and I don't expect you too...I was just throwing out some ideas from my head :p

    And the fact that you are doing a CoreXY mod that can be applied to an Ultimaker is awesome in itself.

    I'm so exited for all the things you and @gudo are throwing at us <3

    And right now I don't have time to evolve my thoughts...but as a famous Swedish film character (after a Danish original) said..."Jag har en plan!"...aka. "I have a plan!" :)

    Unfortunately most of his plans faulted and they ended up in jail...but at the end they still came out ok :p

  2. That's why we are all complaining ;)

    Some issues are almost a year old and still going strong... :angry:

    I only visit here now because some of the interesting stuff is still posted here...but it is not with yoy...and it is easy to miss things since even such a basic thing as forum navigation is broken :(

  3. A full alu frame could work but imo without some panels to close ‘the box’ the rigidity changes a lot.

    without panels or additional cross reinfort tubes, despite a very tight corner junctions, with time  any extruded aluminium structures would move as a 3D deformable trapezoid ! ;)

    I totally understand that...but making a frame with alu-extrusion and then making some plates, or crossings, to stiffen it up is far easier to do than creating a frame when you don't have a CNC :)

  4. Well it looks neat....but that's a giant print head and little printer....so your print volume is what?  3 inch x 3 inch  :)

    The Go is a sweet little printer...with better print quality than the full size UM's.

    I rarely print things that would not fit on the Go's bed. And it's the perfect size to have in your house...or for your kids to play with :)

  5. When looking for things in the forum I found ZGE - Zero Gravity Extruder - upgrade from Gudo and Neotko, I will definitely try it.

    That is the best extruder you can mount on your UMO+/UM2 today :)

    It is by far the best upgrade I have made to my UMO+ after I switched to an UM2 printhead.

    The design and instructions by @gudo and @neotko are top-notch...and the @Bondtech gears...OMG...the ZGE will happily feed whatever filament you throw at it...and for Ninjaflex type flexibles...you can pretty much print it at the same speed as you would print with regular filament on a stock Ultimaker.

    It will take some effort to print one though. But if you follow the instructions carefully you will have a best-in-class extruder :)

  6. Wrote a long reply to a thread this weekend only to discover later that the forum trashed my post without throwing any kind of error. And I didn't feel like trying to reply all over again.

    How about returning to a forum software with a proven track-record? It's not as if there isn't any good alternatives available... Surely by now you must have realized that this forum is a disaster? Nothing you have done in the past year to, as you say improve things, has been an improvment :( Not even faults with clear descriptions of what is not working is reacted upon :angry:

  7. There is a big difference with Bondtech vs. the stock feeder on the UM2+ even though others have not said so. The stock feeder "squeezes" the filament since it only has one gear...while Bondtech will gently move the filament since it has dual gears that will have a good grip on the filament without "squeezing" it.

    Just take a look at the Bondtech drive gears and then look at the stock gear and it will be obvious how much better it works...especially if you have a lot of retractions :)

    That said...i'm not using a bowden setup anymore...i'm using the ZGE which also uses Bondtech gears.

  8. Beyond the responsiveness of the servers, the overall architecture of the app is questionable...

    Not to mention the UI...if you are not using a retina display and have good, no top notch, eye vision you will struggle with this site.

    As a simple example...hit the search button in the top right...and tell me if you did not have to think if the click actually worked...there is a search field there...but it is so well hidden even Sherlock Holmes would have had a hard time locating it...

  9. Still...if the bed is not level...trying to "fix" it with a probe that is just making sure that the nozzle doesn't hit the bed is...a hack.

    If it instead was used during bed leveling to adjust the bed...that would be a totally different story.

    But as it is now...it is just a marketing gimmick...although one that, I can agree, does "assist" a noob to some degree...but it is not helping in the long term to understand what is happening.

  10. How are the loading times on the rest of the site compared to the forums

    Once the forum page has loaded, clicking on a post or subforum is better. Although it is still worse that other forum software. But at least that part did not get worse over summer.

    But there are actions that also shows sign of too high latency. I don't remember what I did yesterday, but that action took like 20 secs. Maybe its doing a lot more DB accesses then, or it is accessing some data that has way too high latency.

  11. Initial page load for the forum...from typing the address and hitting enter until you see the main forum page...40 secs...

    This has been the case since I returned to checking the forum after my summer vacation. I don't know what you did to the backend...but how this could not have been discovered earlier and addressed already is...:O
