  1. @MIO The mentioning of 'rotary button' seems like you refer to the UM2(+) ? This thread started about the interface for the UM2+C which is very different with a touch screen.
  2. Personally I'm not happy with the current situation either. The formal way for complaints nowadays is to contact your reseller and they will forward it to the Ultimaker Customer Care department. Then, as a work around, I can show you one of the hidden tricks the UM3 has in its internals. When you are willing to edit a text file on the printer, then you can enable another leveling mechanism that's also used in the S-line of printers. The UM3 uses a 3-point leveling where the S-line uses a multi-point bed leveling (MPBL). The MPBL is more accurate as it probes more locations and ca
  3. @Duckminster I checked and you are right, v4.3.3 doesn't update the materials. I'm always using v5.2.x and there it is updating the materials when connected to Cura.
  4. Cura 4.10 has material profiles for the UM3 included. Select your printer from Cura and it will transfer all updated material profiles in the background to your printer. This should even work for the older 4.3.3. release.
  5. Helaas zijn er in het Nederlandse deel van dit forum niet veel mensen. Probeer de vraag nog eens te stellen in het Engelstage Cura deel van dit forum. Cura heeft (te) veel opties en het zou me niet verbazen als het mogelijk is wat jij wilt. Een andere optie die je kunt proberen is 'ironing'. Deze optie gaat aan het einde van de print nogmaals over de bovenste horizontale vlakken om ze glad te strijken. Werkt verrassend goed. Tip: Kijk in de preview van Cura of de bewegingen zijn zoals je wilt voordat je weer een print start. Je kan dit als een soort film afspelen zodat
  6. Die vertraging is vreemd. Welk merk + type printer gebruik je en welke Cura versie?
  7. Zou je mij de log files willen mailen? Mail naar mijn account op dit forum: klik op mijn avatar, en dan op mijn profielpagina bovenaan op 'Message'.
  8. Een printer die zichzelf herstart is heel uitzonderlijk. Alle bekende fouten worden afgevangen en resulteren in een melding op het scherm, of worst case, een scherm dat niet meer reageert. De enige redenen die ik ken voor de printer herstarten zijn hardware gerelateerd, d.w.z. bijvoorbeeld geheugendefecten of voedingspanning. De printer heeft lang stilgestaan. Mogelijk lopen de X- en Y-assen zwaar, de motoren trekken dan extra piekstromen en kunnen een spanningdip veroorzaken. https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011597819-Lubricate-the-Ultimaker-3-axles Prob
  9. Great you finally found the problem cause. When you describe it like this it sounds all logical, but it was a difficult thing to figure out. Thanks for sharing your findings so hopefully others can benefit.
  10. Thanks for posting your request. Feedback like this helps us to understand how people are using the printers and how we can improve the workflow. I can't promise if or when this will be implemented but I like the request and forwarded it to our product owner.
  11. This means the printer has problems reading the SD card. I don't have an Ender3Pro printer, but here are some generic problems every SD-card printer can encounter: SD card is corrupt. When you remove the SD-card from your computer you always have to use the 'eject' function, otherwise the computer might not have saved all file data and the administration on the SD card becomes corrupt. When you insert this SD card in your Windows computer, is it then reported as potentially damaged? SD cards larger than 32Gb are not (yet) supported by all printers. Firmware bug. FAT32 has be
  12. The idea of Active Leveling in the S-line printers is that no manual adjustments should be required. As @Dim3nsioneer suggests, it seems like you have a poor configured material profile. Tweaking the Z-axis is simple to implement in the printer software, but it's fixing a symptom rather than the real problem. It will change the Z-dimensions of your print and you'll have to repeat it for every print job with this material.
  13. Thanks for the explanation of what all settings do, but for Ultimaker to move this feature out of the experimental section they'd like to hear how good it is working. Do you have to adapt the default settings often? And when you change them, what's your motivation for deviating?
  14. You already tried replacing a lot of parts. A temperature resistance between the PT100 and the heater block could be an explanation for your problems, but since you already replaced the PT100 I'd assume you there are no loose parts there. Can you use a thermometer to confirm the temperature? This would rule out all electrical causes. Other possible culprits: - Feeder problems. Not enough spring tensions, or worn out feeder wheels (takes printing less than 1 spool of abrasive materials, e.g. glass fill, but also brass infill like materials) - Clogged nozzle
  15. I like the feature too, but with mixed emotions. It can reduce printing time a lot, but I always have to compare to the default settings since it can increase the printing time too. Since you use it often, what do you think of the default settings for the Adaptive Layers? For others to learn, how do you use this feature? Are you tweaking settings? If yes, how do you do this?
