  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)
  4. Version 1.0


    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*
  10. I am about to purchase that material... what happened? User error or another garbage filament that i/we should stay away from???
  11. @SandervG Hey mate! Questions (we print a LOT of prototypes). We currently use Ultimaker Nylon (Black) to print our prototypes. It plays nicely with PVA supports but the finish does leave a bit to desire. How does PP compare? (Finish + PVA supports). Thanks
  12. White glue diluted in water, smooth/spread everything with a paper towel. 500+ prints, no issues. Takes 30 seconds to apply. Once the print is done, i put the bottom in water (usually have too anyway with the PVA supports) and once its all done (a few hours after) the print pops off. Printed VERY difficult/delicate prints and very big/hefty one's. No issues, ever.
  13. Sure thing, i'll snap a pic next time i get a poly order.
  14. No idea, i have made parts for customers and they were fine. Although I am not impress by their claim you can use PVA supports, because the results were very bad.
