  1. Re you going to manufacture and sell this? If so then I am interested.
  2. Count me as one of the one percenters. I think there are a whole bunch of us not complaining which is contributing to the illusion that very few are having issues. I think that since we paid a premium for our printer we trust that Ultimaker will make things right. I am starting to think that trust may be misplaced. Rethinking my purchase.
  3. While the above post is slightly OT, I do agree that the rollover seems unnecessary. If the list was really long I can see the benefit but all of the menus are short and to be able to spin the wheel clockwise very quickly to return reliably to the previous menu would speed up navigation for me.
  4. To me it seems that bed leveling has set the bed too close to the nozzle which prevents extrusion - at least that is how it appears in my case.
  5. The latest firmware seems to work differently with the Bondtech QR feeders on my 3E (with required value changes applied to firmware). Anyone else seeing this? I asked Bondtech to take a look.
  6. Bump! Nobody answered JohnInOttawa's question so I thought I'd give it a bump because I have the same question: I also presume, since cura can't handle 0.6 AA yet, the gcode to program an AA hardcore to 0.6 would just screw stuff up Is that correct? Maybe it will be a moot point when Cura supports the CC hot end? Also, I just installed Bondtech QR extruders and printed ColorFabb XT-CF20 with a .6 mm ruby nozzle with line width set to .15 mm, The results are good but I think I am seeing just a bit of over-extrusion. Anyone else seeing that?
  7. I purchased a spare feeder for exactly this reason. As long as there isn't something I am missing then I guess I can live with it the way it works (as long as I remember to override the error instead of blankly staring at the printer wondering why it isn't printing...)
  8. I have a UM3E and a Solex Hardcore 0.4 steel nozzle printing XT-CF20 using a recipe I found somewhere in this forum. It prints beautifully! However when I send a print to the printer it complains that the material is not compatible with the Hardcore and every time I have to manually override the error to get it to print. The print core is set to AA 0.4 and the profile is custom for the XT-CF20. The material on the printer is set to nylon. I must have set something wrong?
  9. Yes and no. The firmware version that just download is 4.2.5. Is that the same as 4.2 as described in the News?
  10. Pardon my ignorance but multiple times I have started my UM3E printer to see a "there is new firmware" message. As I am apt to do I usually install it but I am always curious as to what has changed or been added but when I come to this forum I typically cannot find anything resembling "release notes" except when it is a major release. Perhaps I am missing something obvious and hopefully you can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance.
  11. I did an auto level then as the printer printed I adjusted the back screw to lower the plate to get a fairly even layer. I then stopped the print removed the print and did another auto level. Again the front of the printer is fine with a gradient to the back of the printer where the layer is nonexistent. Auto leveling is simply broken on my machine. Not sure where to go with this.
  12. When I auto level the bed on my UM3E the head is always closer on the back, so close that it actually touches the bed and the extrusion is nearly nonexistent. The front is perfect but the print is a perfect gradient front to back. I've noticed that the rear spring is very much less stiff than the front two. Could that be the cause? Any other ideas?
  13. It doesn't snap in. It is held in place with the arm that guides the filament. Not a super positive feel to retention but it works. BTW - Due to the way the arm is designed it matters which way the filament is wound on the spool of some spools. For example, the spool design plus the direction of wind means you'll have to rig up some way to use Matterhacker's Pro filaments. I don't know about the others. It would have been nice the design was more universal.
  14. Cold you make a picture of that? is it sanded or what is it like? If it was sanded - wouldn't this result in an feature like a buildtak mounted? Here is a picture. It shows a close up with a nickel on the glass to help you understand the scale. The surface is smooth-textured as you can see. I don't know anything about buildtak.
