    Ultimaker 3 Won't Boot

    Mine did that this morning. I had to turn it on, take the USB out, put it back in, turn it off, turn it on, wait. And it loaded fine. Gave me a scare, 2 of them did that.

    Quick 4 inch print of the Hel supercarrier from eve-online. A very difficult 3d print that i would normally do at around 10 inches. Our new Ultimaker 3 printed it with zero issues. Amazing considering it's not only a very small print (4 inches/10 cm) but has numerous 'angled armor plates' that are very difficult to normally print. Ultimaker 3 FTW!

    Ultimaker 3 Won't Boot

    Go in the Ultimaker menu and there should be a restore to factory settings option. Then connect your Ultimaker to the WIFI using the standard procedure. Then using Cura 2.3 you can update it/etc. I think mine simply updated by itself once it was connected to our Wifi.

    Cura 2.3 has stopped working

    I fixed it... weirdest thing. In my case it must open on my primary monitor. If you close it while you had it open on a secondary monitor, it will crash. So that means w/e i am doing, when closing Cura it has to be located on your primary monitor. Very weird... But i have a 34" ultrawidescreen curved monitor coming in to replace my dual screen setup, so not an issue later on (at least for me).

    Reinstall firmware after doing a restore to factory on the printer?
  6. Golden mate, golden. Thank you
  7. I wouldn't mess with the insides of brand new UM3's tbh... Right now kind of grounded for long prints, i spoke to the owner of the building where we rent space for our business, they do not care. They have to abide by some pretty strict regulations. Thought of sticking them in our utility closet but it's kind of messy and 30 feet from the nearest outlet. No point having a 'nice' workshop if our printers are struck in a tiny closet lol Editing the gcode is a good idea... id have to dig into it (unless someone already has... @Daid
  8. PLEASE update the firmware to let us do it asap. We got a $150 fine last night for leaving our lights on at work. Well our lights were off... but our UM3's were running. Yes they are that bright! Not cool :-(
  9. There's an online guide, that's what i used to setup the first one, and then setup the 3 other's. Only thing is filament recognition isn't working... I plugged the antenna properly, i'm using Ultimaker chipped filament... so idk... I had to tell it manually what it was. Hi Ronan, thank you for your message. How do you mean it is not working? Are you sure you have plugged the cable in correctly? Have you contacted a support team for assistance? Looking forward hearing from you! Yes I plugged the white cable in. It's not working on any of the 4 UM3's we bought. Meaning i must be doing something wrong... so will check again today.

  12. Is printing with PVA support suppose to make a 2 hour long print over 13 hours? That's what i am getting... for quite the small print, in Normal Quality. That means my average 10 hour long prints are going to take a few days... This can't be right?...

    Sorry to see it go my UM2 end of an era

    Nice. They always sell for what i put them at, but can't stop certain people from 'offering' absurd low amounts and then getting mad when they don't get it. How many UM do you sell? 6 um2 were replaced over the last year with um2+. Um3 Arriving this week I believe. Let's hope it's all that it's claimed to be!

    Sorry to see it go my UM2 end of an era

    When you post something for $1200 when the going price is around $1500 used and they contact you offering less than $500 because 'thats the going price' in their head, that's being annoying. When you show them what the going price is, they resort to using non-sense idiotic comments. eBay is full of them, and they seem to target people that post 3d printers. I have sold numerous used Ultimaker's on eBay (basically when ever we upgrade our printers), and every time it happens. Some of them will actually keep contacting us until we block them/add on ignore. We all go through a rough time, but i do not understand how someone can ask for a fraction of the price of the current rate, and then have a big mouth about it when they are politely refused. The term low balling comes to mind.

    Hey mate, ignore those ebay idiots. It's the same 4-5 individuals harassing people. Every time we put an older Ultimaker for sale on eBay after replacing them with a new one, they kept contacting us offering 1/4 the going rate on eBay and how we are ignorant about prices. A few have been reported and blocked. If you push through it sells within a week or so.
  17. @neotko Wasn't aware it's an issue posting an Ultimaker link to my filament sale, my bad mate!
  18. How to get spare parts: Step 1: Contact your local Ultimaker reseller/distributer (or use their online shop). Step 2: Place Order & Pay. Step 3: Wait a few days for parts to arrive. That's how we do it, ordered from a tiny missing screw, all the way to a full head. Never had any issues. It's a lot easier/quicker than traditional methods with bigger 3D printers/machines.

    UM3, who's going to buy one?

    Already ordered one to test. If it works as good as Ultimaker claims, then it will replace a few of our UM2+.

    ULTIMAKER 3 (DUAL EXTRUSION?)

    We run a 3D design/printing company and our bread & butter are our Ultimaker's. I have no idea why you are having such an issue with yours/your customers. We have printed from sample toys to full on 5 feet long high quality models and everything in between. Yes sometimes you need to cut and weld parts and even paint them after doing some cleaning up/sanding. It's still MUCH cheaper than traditional rapid-prototyping or even small runs which are usually very expensive. Yes supports are a pain, but 9/10 times can be worked around/with. Sometimes it means you have to put extra work into getting a high quality finished product. This new printer eliminates that, which is why we already pre-ordered one to test it. Also, we originally replaced a $25,000 printer with a Ultimaker 2+ and received the exact same results (Since then we sold that expensive printer and bought 6x Ulti's). Sure our stratasys can print in higher quality and in full color and support is never an issue... but that's a whole different price tag (and the finish products are much more expensive too!). Like in everything, how much work you put into it will yield higher quality results. Also a pro-tip, your 3d printer is just a small part of your ecosystem at work. Softwares are much more expensive and some are pretty damn difficult to master.

    ULTIMAKER 3 (DUAL EXTRUSION?)

    Yes it has dual extruder, for printing soluble supports. Yes it will be extremely expensive. Yes Cura is getting an update.
  23. Hello all! Slight issue i am having. I am printing 4 0.4mm thick squares, 1 at each corner of the bed. Rear left/right and front left are comming out perfect. Front right is having some issues, there's tiny holes where the lines aren't quite connecting to the shell/outer perimeter. I have been tweaking that side for a few hours, nothing seems to fix the issue, not even releveling the bed, changing the z axis, etc... Please advise. Photo attached.

    GE's Jet Engine

    Version 1.0

    1,955 downloads

    Quick print of GE's Jet Engine. Printed in silver and red PLA. The stand is printed in black XT at 200 micron/0.6mm nozzle.
  25. If I print a thin rectangle of a height of 0.4mm, in Cura my layer height is set to 0.3mm and my initial layer thickness is set to 0.5mm, what layer height is my first layer printed at? If i change the Initial layer line width from 100% to 125% or even 150%, what does that do exactly? Increases the flow to put more material down? Increases the nozzle width of each line by the % needed? Does Dual extrusion Switch Amount (mm) overule the retraction settings for each extruders? Thanks
