  1. Hello everybody, this morning after a few weeks from my last print, I resumed operations with my UM3 again. Unfortunately as soon as it started to heat up the print bed, the printer rebooted itself. I tried a factory reset but nothing changed... then I found a similar topic on this forum suggesting to reduce the power budget parameter in the um3.json file from 221 to 200 (available via ssh in developer mode). After this change, the printer started to work again... btw the point of this topic is to better understand which are the pros and cons of this tweak. As per my understanding my current power brick is not supplying UM3 with enough power... so 1 mln dollar question: do I need to replace it or it's good to leave the parameter set to 200? Can this tweak cause any damage to the hw? Thanks [Update] After a few minutes it failed again because of another power cycle.
  2. Hello, I was suggesting to purchase an Ultimaker S5 in a professional environment. They need to design and print prototypes then eventually realize products to be used. In the past I got used to UM3 and I was pretty satisfied, does S5 stack up with it? I have read many posts about accuracy flaws, after a year have software upgrades fixed them? Please advise. Thanks
  3. Cool! Many Thanks guys. I'll follow you suggestions since it's worth a try! What type of core should I buy? The hardcore pro one? Does it reach 360°C?
  4. What about the Engineering High Temp (EHT) upgrade for Hardcore announced on the 3D Solex website?
  5. What do I need in order to print Ultem with my UM3? Would the special 3d Solex nozzle suit? Is the diameter an issue? As far as I know Ultem is sold only in 1.75mm spools
  6. Hi guys, I have come across this topic since I'm interested in printing designs by using ULTEM 9085. I own a UM3, what do I need? For sure I have to replace the nozzle because as far as I know the genuine one cannot withstand the Ultem's extrusion temperature. Moreover searching online I have only found 1.75mm spools, are 2.85mm spools available as well? Thanks
  7. Hello guys, I was wondering if any of you has ever tried printing PEI aka ULTEM which is a filament compliant with aeronautics standards... As far as I know it's developed by Stratasys and supplied with a diameter of 1.75mm. Is it available as 2.85mm for our UM? Any thoughts about this?
  8. I moved the text sideways like kmanstudios suggested and the result is pretty neat! Moreover I changed the font to Candara which has a thinner profile, with a hollow extrusion set to 0.5mm and a font size of 6. Uploaded as V3 https://goo.gl/FJdQCC
  9. Turn it sideways? Ok i've uploaded version 2 https://goo.gl/FJdQCC Turning it sideways? The space available is almost the same both on the top and on the side of the design. I dunno...I gots 'em purty big there budreaux... May not be the aesthetic you wished for, but it can be done. tried with a different line width (3.0mm) but no way! I suppose that rotating the text along the arms is the only solution... I'll give it a try later. Did you keep the original text size?
  10. I'll try to tweak my line width setting... so far it's set to 0.35mm

  12. Yes now I recall, the version on thingiverse is old and the font size was too small to be printed. Indeed if you compare your sliced version with the one I posted previously the font size is clearly different. Later I'll post the newer STL... I was wondering why the discrepancy. But I would still make the fonts larger than in your original post, or make them positive, as in protruding above the surface...or, even both. I would also use geert_2's post as a solid guideline for sizing of text. Point is that I have as constraint the width of each single arm so I cannot increase text size as much as I'd like to

  14. On thingiverse I have already shared it but so far I don't remember how deep the groove was... And right now I'm unable to check it: https://goo.gl/FJdQCC
