  1. Selling UM2+ Has not been used in at least 2 years. Will need to be leveled I will not ship, but I will travel up to 300 miles from Wilmington, Delaware to exchange Selling for $1200 or best offer
  2. I have a Ultimaker 2+ that I would like to sell. Ideally I would sell it to someone locally in the US. What is a good price I should expect it to sell it at?
  3. I have NO idea what that horizontal feature does but it worked great! I used to be a huge Simplify3D fan, but Cura is slowly luring me back.
  4. I like that video! I cleaned off my glass plate better. Also, I took kmanstudios suggestions and printed slower and 5 degrees lower. Much Better! So now I have the tangential question of those ears. How to make them less globby? I also have an even more tangential question. I downloaded the gears from gr5's video. The gears did not rotate because of squish. I only printed a few millimeters of the gears before stopping, and this pic is looking at the bottom. Instead of leveling the plate higher for less squish, can i change the flow out of the nozzle that would print the gears better?
  5. Great minds think alike! I had that same thought before. The results are nearly the same:
  6. Hello Again! I've been trying to print this: Low-Poly Pikachu 90% of it comes out great. The top, never finishes. I can't quite explain what is happening. It's almost as if the back part of the head gets printed "higher" and the nozzle knocks into it. It's weird. Every thing else comes out great on super fine setting in cura. So is this some kind of nozzle adjustment issue, or is this just becuase of something in the STL? This happens weather the gcode comes from Cura, or from Simplify3D. Thoughts on what to try?
  7. It's not the priming extrusion, that stays where it should be. BUT, it could very well be coming from the nozzle. When this current print is done, I will wipe that off. Thanks for the suggestion! Maybe warp was the wrong way to describe it. It's not with the first layer, but the upper layers. If you see that previous picture, you can see most of the diagnol lines, but then they stop for a section at the bottom. That section is the part that is "higher" then the others. Here is a side picture: See how it peeks up like a mountain? It should be flat.
  8. I leveled the bed, and lowered the temps. Looking much better! Thanks korneel and rowiac! What causes those blops of filament? That has happened on a few other prints. Also, what would make the middle warp? It should be flat.
  9. I have recently taken apart my feeder, and cleaned it, fixed both of my side fans to work, and gave my printbed a light rubbing of rubbing alcohol. I also leveled the printbed. Since doing all things all of my prints have been unrecognizable malformed messes. When I started watching them, they seem to be off from the get-go, first layer is not good. Settings for this: 65 degree printbed 215 degree extruder print speed is 35 mm/s filament is a new spool of colorFABB economy I've tried doing a few temperature variations without any improvement. I haven't tried glue on the bed, but
  10. My two side fans are not going on at all. When I issue M106 S200 command, the middle one goes on but not the two side ones. I want to remove the bottom cover, as specified in this issue... but I can't unscrew the two nuts. Very tiny. Any suggestions as to where I could get a tool loosen the nuts? It is made worse by the fact that I have very little room at the bottom
  11. Maybe... But why does it make a loud noise? I am never near it when it does it, so maybe I should stay in the room while it prints to see what is happening...
  12. Houston, we may have a problem. Since doing that, I have noticed the prints are more stringy, there have been big blobs of filament in the print, and also, every so often I hear a loud clacking sound. I assume this is related to when I took off the feeder? Did I not do something right when putting it back, or is this a new issue?
  13. WOW! That was the most hands-on I've ever been with my Ultimaker. I ended up taking it completely off. Let me tell you, there was some pretty colored pixie dust in there. Even though there were some "OMG! WHERE DID THAT SCREW GO!?" moments, overall it was a good learning experience. And most of all, it now works! Huzzah!
  14. My UM2+ has been printing things all weekend but stopped yestrerday. It will retract fine, but will not extrude. I did the atomic method, and not much came out. I was also able to manually push filament in, and it would extrude fine. I took the nozzle off, and there was some filament stuck in there. I removed it, levled and it started working again. It started printing but then stopped again. When it extrudes, you can hear the motor turning but no filament comes out. I know it is heating up becuase I took a spare piece of filament and pressed it to the outside of the nozzle. Any suggestions
