  1. After almost three years i'am still enjoying the mark2 upgrade of the UM 2+. Recently I'am looking into laser cutters but due to the lack of space I thought to use the Ultimaker also for this purpose. I know there are some hacks to make the Ultimaker into a laser cutter (e.g. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3022126), but I was wondering if somebody already tried it with the magnetic printhead concept of the mark2? So that you do not have to rebuild the complete printing head but have the laser available at the left corner of your machine?
  2. Hi, do you still have the original values?
  3. Hi Bob, Thnx, I put the feeder on the right which made it possible to put the steppenmoter inside the UM and it provides easy acces for changing fillement. I wanted it to be compact because I use the machine in the Ikea fabrikor cabinet. An UM fits perfectly in this (http://www.ikea.com/nl/nl/catalog/products/20242277/), you only have to change the fillament rol to the bottom instead of the back. And yes Cura 3.0.4 seems to work well, I will test it more thoroughly in the upcoming Christmas holiday's with more materials etc.
  4. Thnx, these settings did work for my UM also. But like you recommended I also ordered a new PSU today just to be sure.
  5. Thnx, Foehnsturm, I think the setup with the power adjustment is working just fine see my printed cone ;-)) Thnx for this great hack! I was wondering, printing in the mark2 setup reduces the building platform a bit. How can I use the full platform when using one extruder. Can I just switch in Cura to UM 2+ and make a file, and switch the UM to one extruder mode with the mark2 firmware? Or is the full building platform no option anymore with the mark2 setup?
  6. Thnx for your fast replay, I will check the forum how this works hopefully I get it fixed ;-)
  7. Hi Bob, I made the upgrade, it looks cool but Yes I encountered some issues. The main one is that the machine reboots (crashes) by itself during a printjob.I encountered this almost 8 time's during calibration. I was wondering if this is a common error? I have used the mark2 expansion board with the original Ultimaker extruder feeder upgrade on a ultimaker 2+ from 2015/2016 Regards Joris
  8. Hi Bob, I have printed my parts in octofiber carbon filament to comply with the heat. Looks nice. Currently I am waiting for the Mark2 Extension board kit to be delivered. But its still a bit awkward to do the install because my UM2+ is printing so nicely. I am a little bit worried to loose the precision it currently has after the install.
  9. Dear Community, currently I'am working on the Mark2 upgrade for my UM2+ (great project :-). I was wondering if the current Cura resources files on GitHub will work with the latest versions of cura 3.0.X or do I have to downgrade towards Cura 2.x? Does someone have any experiences on this.

    After printing and flying the crossfire 2. I wanted to start my own experiment in dronedesign. The Herdlocker 1 is still work in progress, I hope you like the design please let me know your comments. I'am still working on some tolerances and the final (improved) Pixhawk (www.pixhawk.org) mount. If you need more info let me know. I will provide more information soon on the electronics used.
