    TPU 95A

    Hello Catohagen, The bed should be level. I just re-leveled it yesterday. The odd thing is that it only does this with the phone case and not the maker coin I have been testing. I will try your settings

    Here is another pic of the first layer I just tried right now.

    Here are some pics Sandervg. I’m having so much trouble printing this phone case. Right now in the second pic, you can see it’s printing super fine and light so it’s tansparent. Shurik, are you using Cura default settings and just changing the items you listed for the TPU 95a filament? Thank you both for he response.

    TPU 95A

    Hello all, I'm not sure if this is possible, but can we share build files? Meaning the settings for a certain type of Filament? If so, does someone happen to have a file for printing TPU95 A? I am having a hard time getting started. Nothing I seem to do is working. I cant get this stuff to print to save my life. Even with the pre selection in Cura. I've turned off "retraction" adjusted temps and just no luck at all. The print seems to make it to about halfway through the second layer of this phone case and just stops printing. Ive also noticed that the Filament is feeding through very slow through the back of the machine. Extremely slow Any advice would be greatly appreciated Thanks
  5. Thank you Yellowshark. I will try this. Im printing a benchy right now. I ready that night that then benchy should tell you any problem areas with your printer. i went out and bought a Infrared Thermometer like you sugggested to test the bed. Here are my findings. front of bed is 131 F left side of bed 131 F back of bed 132 F right side of bed 134F these vary 1-2 degrees.
  6. Hello all, The base of my prints are coming out really rough. I’ve leveled the bed several times and I can’t seem to fix this. I’ve tried recommended settings and still the same result. I use glue on the bed with it spread out with warm water so it’s thin. I’m not sure where to go from here. I’ve attached a picture of two different prints to show. Thanks for your time. John
  7. Thank you all very much. I really appreciate all the responses. I will start with Cura until I know it well and then decide from there.
  8. OK here is a second print. on these pictures, the two corners are completely lifted and basically melted on the front. The back side is having the same issues as the above picture. Sorry for the cheesy writing on the pics. It was done off of my iPad. Thanks
  9. Hello all, My first print was the UM3 robot that came with the USB drive. It came out great. So I decided to print another piece and on the image below you can see that print was messing up. The part that you are seeing is the base of the print that touches the glass bed. For some reason its printing bumps and lifting up from the print bed. I thought I would try a second print and I received the exact same results from the print bed. ***Before print*** I cleaned the glass with soap and water and dried it really well. Then I used a very light layer of glue on the print bed. Can someone please tell me why this is happening? Thanks
  10. Hello all, I wanted to ask the community about their preference regarding Cura vs Simplify3D. A buddy of mine suggested to me today that Simplify3D was the much better way to go than Cura and he listed all of these benefits to Simplify3D. Now, I am new to 3D printing and slicers. Does anyone have experience with both of these and can share their opinion? Is the extra 150 dollars worth it to get Simplify3D? Does Cura do all the same things as Simplify3D? Thanks.
  11. Hello all, I wanted to give an update on the camera and the ip plug/ kill switch. This is working out amazing. I’m at work and able to check in on my prints. I’ve tested the kill switch on the printer and it works amazing. Thanks so much for he help and idea.
  12. Hello all, Just got my UM3X about 2 hours ago and did all the leveling and Calibration. My son really wanted his first print to be the Gyro the Dodo by Virtox 1.0. From this site but we cant seem to Ddownload it. Does anyone happen to have this file please? Thanks
  13. Ok I went out tonight and bought the camera and plug. Cost me 96 dollars total. Super easy to set up. Thanks Brulti so much for the information. Works like a charm.... ???????

    Carbon Fiber

    Ive been looking at them and from what i have seen, even the really expensive ones can only do small objects. Which isn’t really worth it to me to pay all of this money to only scan small objects. Do they make ones for scanning bigger objects like a car rim or a engine? Thanks
  15. That is awesome information. I’m going shopping tonight lol. This will be so awesome, because i have seen post on here where people have walked away from watching the printing and things go all wrong and a lot of filament is wasted. Speaking of Filament. Is it better to use UM breakaway filament or PVA for supports? The sales rep said UM breakaway is much better than PVA. He stated that UM has really taking the time to perfect this and have made huge improvements form the past. I would not know either way lol Thanks
  16. Awesome idea. Ill head down to Best Buy and buy a couple because that sounds a lot easier. Never heard of an IP Plug. Are they expensive? How do they work? Meaning how does it connect to your printer to be able to kill the power? Thanks John

    Ok. I will look into this scanner. Thank you for the suggestion.

    Carbon Fiber

    Ok I will look into this thank you. Another thing came to mind.... What about 3D scanners. Are they worth it? Is there a good one out there that wont break the pocket book? Thanks

    Carbon Fiber

    Ok Phew.... The way he was talking was that I wouldn’t be able to print carbon fiber parts at all. Thank you for clearing that up. I was going to be bummed if he was right because I was super excited to print some carbon fiber car parts. Thanks
  20. Hello all, I ordered my first UM3X and it arrives on wed. I also, order with it, the nozzle to print carbon fiber and carbon fiber filament. I was talking to and engineer at my work and we were talking about 3D printing and I expressed that i was excited to be able to print carbon fiber. He basically turned to me and said that this printer can not print carbon fiber and that I would need a 100k printer in order tor print carbon fiber. Is he correct? If he is, this will suck because I spent the extra money for the nozzle and filament in order to be able to print carbon fiber. Did I just waste money? Thanks.
  21. Ok. I’m still trying to learn my way around this site. Lol
  22. Thank you both very much. Matt... Do you happen to have a link on how to do port forwarding on my router please? I am not familiar with doing this and I would definitely like to check in on my prints while I’m out an about. Thanks
  23. Thank you very much for the links. Great information. I saw on one of the links that they are using a Slicer named Simplify 3D. Do you guys recommend that over the software that comes with the Ulitimaker3? Also, I saw the UM3 has a camera inside it. Can I look in on my prints from my phone when I am not home? Thanks
  24. Thank you both for all the advice. I greatly appreciate it. I look forward to this new adventure. I have so much to learn.
