  1. Final release of Cura 2.4 has solved the problem. Good job Cura development team Here are a couple of items to add to the wish list: I wish they would have left "Back" as a simple choice selection of the Z scar in 2.4. Much simpler than having to calculate exactly where the back of the model is. Especially when there are multiple models horizontally across the build plate. In 2.3.1 all of the models get the z scar in the same place at the back of the model, whereas in 2.4 the z scar is slightly canted to the left or the right of the back of each model depending on their relative location from the center of the build plate. Also, I'd like to see the ability to select a different pattern for the Top and Bottom, much as we can specify individual Top and Bottom Thickness.
  2. Both of these machines are sold. Purchased by N3DS as a result of the original post. Thanks to all for your interest. I'll be purchasing a second UM3X in a week or so
  3. I am also struggling with how the roof / support interface works in 2.4 Beta2. In my opinion, the support interface / roof works much better in 2.3.1 in terms of how well it supports the the structure above if the angle of the part being supported is very shallow. The details of the final print at very shallow angles (10 degrees to 20 degrees) reveal that the layers are not well supported. Especially if the part being supported is oval or round. It's almost as if the part isn't really being printed on the support interface / roof below it at all. (Air Gap?) Since the Z distance is set to 0, (and cannot be made a negative number) nothing can be done to improve the intimacy between the support interface / roof and the part being printed above it. 2.3.1 seems to do a much better job in assuring the the part is really being printed directly on the roof below. On the other hand, if the part being supported is flat, then the PVA support is pretty good, and much easier to immediately remove dry, without soaking in water at all. It's almost as though that was the design intent when the software was re-written in 2.4. Hope this was the proper place to post this . . .
  4. Sorry, haven't been monitoring the site. Yes, both machines are still available. Can / will ship in the continental U.S. UPS charges would apply. I do have all of the original packing materials. I can be reached directly at frank@xyzpros.com.

  6. Hello Jim, While I have all of the original packing materials for both machines, I'm not comfortable shipping from Southern California to the UK. Just too much risk, plus the complications of the logistics. Surely there is a willing buyer closer to my market looking for a well maintained UM2. Thanks for the offer just the same . . .
  7. I have two Ultimaker 2 Extended machines for sale. Run with PLA only (no Hi Temp ABS). one has 500 hours the other 615 hrs. Both are like new condition, with Olsson Blocks installed, original shipping cartons and all accessories. $1,000 each. Southern California area. I have recently purchased a UM 3 Extended, and would like to purchase a second one. Need to make room.
  8. Along the same line of thought, is there a way to stop printing the priming tower in Cura 2.X on the UM3 at a specified layer? For instance I would like to stop printing the priming tower at say layer 30 of a particular model because there is no need for additional support, nor the tower, above that point where the support ends when support is set to "touching build plate" Printing the tower all the way to the top of the part often doubles the build time, and needlessly wastes PLA build material.
  9. SolidWorks 2016 and later has a Thread Feature built in. You'll find it in Insert>Features>Thread. Very simple and straight forward.
