  1. We change buildplates nearly daily. We have a dozen spare glass buildplates, precoated, so we can quick swap. Hence why we spent a fortune on the UM3's, quite a few of them, because of reliability. Might grab one or two S5's but unsure. UM3's are nice, but i have not been impressed with the aftersale customer service. It seems those machines are hit/miss, might get a really good one or a really shitty one. Although in all fairness... i think that was a first/second batch issue, which is understandable.
  2. VERY interesting. Something to keep an eye on.
  3. Hi all, been awhile (been extremely busy with my 3D printing business 🙂 ). So one of our army of UM3 is giving us issues (its always the same one... the first one we bought the moment the UM3's came out). Warranty is long gone too... This time the auto leveling isn't working. I spent 3 hours on it with no success. What i tried/did: Clean both print heads. Change print heads. Tighten the bed fully to give it 14mm space before doing a dozen manual leveling and automatic leveling (automatic leveling = head touches glass every time when it starts)

    One of my favorite ship design from the space opera Eve Online. Gave it a quick paintjob.
  5. Surprise Ultimaker doesn't have those incorporated in their UM3...
  6. Forgot to update but maintenance came yesterday. Took them over an hour to unclog the bathroom sink + kitchen sink. Apparently the 'shredder' (no idea what its called, the kitchen sink appliance that shreds left over) ended up breaking, jamming and basically clogging everything. They replaced that too lol Can't wait to move...
  7. Carpets, towels (that magically fell into the mess) and 1 chair are goners. Luckily the bathroom and kitchen are lower than the living room so most of the water stayed contain. We are trying not to have insurance involved because it would kill my premium (and the deposits are rather large here). Waiting on maintenance staff to come check everything out and hopefully fix the problem. Me banging on it for 4+ hours did not fix the issue (in all seriousness the plumbing is beyond shady, codes must have been very different in the 60's haha...). Luckily my home Ultimaker 3 (yes i have one in my
  8. Oh yikes! That's rough. At least it's not winter...? Oh yeah the heat/humidity in MD is absurd this summer. I haven't seen this since i used to go on vacation in Florida haha Keeping positive... moving in a month... yay
  9. Apartment flooded thanks to backed up kitchen + bathroom sinks... What a nice day. *sips coffee in his new swimming pool*

    Converted files into a 3D printable one (original 3D files once converted have very little details, just 'rough' geometric shapes). Ended up 3D printing it on a UM3 + very quick paint job. Was on a tight deadline for a friend's birthday. Ended up being around 11" long.

    Did that one a few years ago on a UM2. Testing the efficiency and quality of 3D printing viable props for movies. Honestly... it was a great experiment. We went on to 3D printing numerous different props for movies, commercials, etc. Linked to a different, more recent PPG 3D file.

    Test print for a new setup for our UM3's.
  13. http://airwolf3d.com/shop/wolfbite-prevents-3d-printed-parts-from-warping Same idea as the PVA solution but for ABS/PETG. Works great.
  14. Are you saying you can boot from the USB port on the front? Where did you download the firmware file from? I am saying that taking the USB key out of the front and then putting it back in, then restarting the printer made it work for me. No idea why/how, it just worked after having the same symptoms you described. 2 of our 4 UM3's did that. 1 caused a failed print, the other it happened on start up. Seems Ultimaker has more debugging to do. Huh. I start my um3 with the USB key in it all the time without any issues. The way you describe it it almost sounds as if it's using the USB k
