  1. Hi, Every time I use Brim in Cura, the bottom of my prints are cut off (1-2mm) - any ideas why? Thanks!
  2. See here for the arguments from the S3D forums: https://forum.simplify3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8763&p=37358#p37358
  3. Fair enough, yeah UM3 is a nightmare! Is there a respository/website where people upload working Ultimaker material profiles?
  4. Thanks a lot!! I've been trying to print with Simplify3D and since the latest firmware apparently Cura has put in place MaterialID's that stop Simplify3D working - see here: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/52023-um3-and-s3d-g-code-unable-to-send-print-job-to-group?page=2&sort= Apparently it will still work with 3.7
  5. Hi, I'm looking for an amazing ABS profile (0.2 or even 0.1mm) for Cura and Ultimaker 3, could people please upload them so I can try them out? I'm looking for one where the supports are easy to remove, the undersides are nice and the quality is great. Not too bothered about the speed as long as the quality is high. If the ABS is too hot or cold then that's pretty easy to solve as every filament is different but I'm pulling my hair out trying to mess around with the settings and not sure I'm making any progress! Thanks!
  6. I will send you my profile by PM. Hi, could you send it to me too please? Thanks!
  7. Ok I'll try a slightly lower temp and report back. I need to print ABS for models that I make - I've tried loads of different materials. The Up Box handles it fine. You have a lot more experience with that machine and I am sure it did not print perfect out of the box. And, it would seem you are trying to apply one set of experiences to a new machine and that never works out. These are complex machines and as good as they have become, nothing is ever plug-n-play with so many variables. Also, when used as designed and a few accommodations are made, such as getting used to the new par

  9. From a USB stick - my PC is a long distance away from my Ultimaker so I need Wifi to work! Either a high quality ABS profile with Cura (or a way to print Simplify3D via Cura.
  10. Btw I managed to get the Simplify3d print going via USB once but it seems like hit-and-miss, completely random. I've upgraded to the latest firmware and like someone else said, it seems worse, I want to go back to 3.7 is that possible?
  11. Attached is a side-by-side comparison of prints (all Rigid Ink ABS and enclosed print areas) with my Up Box (Up software) and Ultimaker 3 (Cura and Simplify 3D). You can see how bad the UM3 prints are with Cura. They were better with Simplify 3D but still can't match the Up Box (Simplify 3D connection to the raft was hard to remove, Up Box comes off easily). I'm hopeful the Ultimaker 3 is capable of matching the Up Box in terms of quality and ease of support removal but the Cura and Simplify3D defaults have poor support structures as default (and you can see that Cura's undersides are very
  12. This, plus: - Filament that is easily accessible - accessing from the back is a joke - Firmware that doesn't glitch 24/7 - Cura that actually works quickly and reliably I bought an UM3 for its reputation for reliability and quality - I mistakenly thought it would be 'print and go' - I've had nothing but problems. At the moment I can't even send a Simplify 3D print via Cura to the printer (using Simplify 3D because Cura is awful). The supported underside of prints are a complete mess, stringy and not flat. I should be able to just print it out of the box perfectly and only mess with set
  13. Hi, I want to download UM3 firmware 3.7 - where can I get it from? I can only find the latest stable or beta firmware, not older ones. Thanks

  15. Hi, I'm trying to send G-code generated via Simplify 3D to my UM3 wirelessly by putting the S3D G-Code into Cura (v.3) and pressing 'Print Over Network' - it looks like it uploads it but then it says 'Unable to send print job to group' and won't print - any ideas what's going on? USB gives me 'error on ln. 0' and won't print either! I also had to turn automatic bed levelling to 'Never' because it kept giving me an error about the printheads being misaligned. It prints okay if I just use Cura (but very bad print quality because it's Cura). I bought an Ultimaker 3 because it's supposed to be j
