  1. PVA is very sensitive, like even 24hrs exposure to humidity can give big problems. In the early years i wasn't aware of this, and it made me having lots of troubles which i never could identify. Since i changed my behavior with these kind of filaments, i no longer have any problems. You can use a drybox, but, and this is my current way of working, you can also only cut the needed length of the roll PVA, and put the rest back in the original sealed bag with its dessicant.
  2. Yes, i probably wil try one out. The simplicity is everything! Also the printquality with the lightweight head.
  3. Great printer made better again! For me this is still the best Ultimaker in the pack.
  4. I use this a lot! perfect product for my mechanical parts. Although heath resistance is not high. I would say, dont go above 50 degrees celsius.
  5. Mine is in this state from the beginning. No reliable wifi connection. Don't know where the problem is. I guess my network. But there are no diagnostics utilities. So very hard to resolve.
  6. I love my S5, but the printer is not as precise (tolerances / elephant foot), as my UM3 and UM2+ I can't speak of the S3, but my feeling is that the weight of the head and the moving axes are the most important factors in this behavior. For me, the only thing missing on the UM3, is the filament detection. (and the levers of the feeder for easy loading of the filament)
  7. I was in exact the same situation, Building 3d printers, and found my "heaven" in S3D. I hated Cura, because there where so many things missing. But now, in the current status, (UM2, UM3, UM S5), with the current Cura, it works so good!!! For professional use, there is almost no tinkering, just plug and play. Yes S3D is surely better in some ways, but the package Cura + Ultimaker works almost flawlessly.
  8. Thanks! I did a fresh install, and now the material shows up. Solved. 😉
  9. I installed it thru the marketplace (just like the iglidur 150, and a lot of other materials, which all work perfect), but it does not show up in cura materials selection. It is UM3 and UM5 compatible, both printers i use. Anyone a clue?
  10. Did you check the pulleys? I once had a pulley that was coming lose. (check on the motors and the connecting pulleys)
  11. Yes, quite remarkable! The most critical things are speed, (jerk and acceleration) Maybe one off the belt tensioning?
  12. Let's see what the Polymax result will be.
  13. Are you sure your filament is dry? do you still have your 2+?
  14. Here you are: UM3 AA 0.4 Latest cura, default setting 0.15 Polymaker tough pla black The damage to the brim is a result of a too high adhesive from the first layer (normally i do a Z 0.1 offset) Greetings, Rudy
