    How to remote control Ultimaker 3?

    Back when I was running a small PC-based digital recording studio I used a product called ContourDesign ShuttlePro. It is a USB2/3 multi-button/jogwheel controller with assignable functions per programs used. The most popular multimedia editing programs include templates that use the ShuttlePro or you can design your own templates to suit your needs. Buttons can be labelled and many example templates and tutorials exist. There's also a ShuttleXpress, a cheaper pared-down version.
  2. Thanks Geert - that's useful to know. I'm in off-print mode at the moment, deliberately, to catch up on household chores.

    @pixl2 I guess one of the ultimate tests of grunge art is if you found it by the side of the road and walked past it.

    @pixl - that is superb grungy rust and divine grubbiness! Well done.
  6. We said hello to each other shortly after I joined the UM forum but nothing more than that. Thanks for the tips. I've been in contact with Dizingof about the "Ennepper Vase" in my OP - about his support strategy for a piece like that vase. He sells finished prints of his beautiful commercial Maths models so I can understand why he might be reluctant to share any making details. I also appreciate his generosity in providing so many free models to download but he includes no making details that would be helpful to a newbie. That's too bad but I think I understand where he's coming from.

    Actually not so different . A 3D printer follows/extrudes using a model. With pottery/ceramics you ARE the extruder and modifications to the model can happen instantaneously. A potter's fingertips can discern 1/1000" (0.0254mm), just like those Japanese ball-bearing testers one sometimes reads about. I avoided making sets as much as possible to stop myself from going repetition-crazy

    All surprising and complex prints! And here I am muttering about Ultimaker being one of the most expensive and painfully-slow 3D toy-making factories. Your prints show another side to the story. When I was into pottery, Japanese pottery master Shoji Hamada kind of became my remote teacher (although he didn't know it) He regarded a period of 30 years about the timespan for a potter to complete their apprenticeship. Scary stuff. So I just managed to squeeze in :). I suspect I was spoiled by the quality I could achieve with pottery, such as this large 60cm airbrushed wall plate which took about 30 mins to make and another day or two to glaze, decorate and fire: I'm humbled by the prints you guys are making.
  9. For stable base do you mean a raft Geert? The "base' is actually halfway up the form.
  10. Great tip ahoeben - thank you! Does the job perfectly.
  11. Of course, you are both right. Preference is what it's all about.
  12. I was responding to 'common lingo' as in: when I shop for filaments, they're called filaments on most websites. Like not calling potatoes tubers.
  13. But they're all filaments, no? It's ok kman. I'm a curmudgeon until I take my pills. I really don't mind what that section is called. I'll watch Talking Heads "Stop Making Sense" again.
  14. LOL! That worked beautifully kman. Couldn't be simpler. Thank you. I will.
