  1. Honestly the idea of a non-FDM printer from ultimaker would be very cool. I can bet a few people in the community would buy an SLA printer from ultimaker since they have such a high reputation of being extremely reliable and having well built machines.

    Carbon 3d printers are about I think $30000 PER YEAR, and the form printers (pretty much all SLAs) are limiting like SandervG pointed out. But people who look for a high resolution resin printer don't really mind that it's not very accessible because they usually trust the machine they're working with. If Ultimaker built one people wouldn't mind this at all I feel, simply because ultimaker has a high reputation of making reliable printers. Who knows though, maybe they'll release a resin printer in the near future.

  2. Ultimaker should consider making an SLA printer to add to their family of Ultimakers. I can imagine since the print quality of their Ultimakers are so good in FDM, what the prints would be like in an even higher quality.

    Possible features:

    -15 micron layer height

    -Different material support

    -A power loss recovery

    -An extended version

    Anyone have any thoughts on this? Do you think they're going to make one in the near future?

  3. The shift is probably because of a loose pulley:


    The bad looking underside is due to the pretty massive overhang. The plastic is almost printing into thin air at that point with nothing to support it from underneath, this causes the bad quality. Improved cooling can help here.


    Here you can also see how sometimes using thicker layers can help:



    The overhang closest to the bottom is a problem but i dont think the top section that is a little droopy should be a problem. Arent ultimakers capable of printing slight overhangs without problem

  4. I'm not sure if this is normal because I don't really understand what the issue is.  You say the glass bed is moving?  Maybe that's normal?  Maybe I don't understand?  I'd still like to see a video of this movement/vibration.  What you say is "excessive" might be normal.  A video would really help.


    I agree, a video would help us a lot

  5. Sorry for the late reply, I have a UM2 board with the oled display and display controller board. I am trying to use the files from youmagine that are inked to github and there is firmware there. However, this is where my problem starts. I am just not sure which file to use and even if someone told me that I couldn't figure out how to install UM2 marlin. Anyone please help.

    Here is the link to the files https://github.com/Ultimaker/Ultimaker2Marlin
