  1. great! i think we will go for the drybox thanks
  2. ok, I will do the overnight drying. and study the drybox purchasing option. Should PLA also be put into the box? then the Ultimaker won't recognize the materials with the NFC chip. One can just introduce manually and that's it, right? thanks
  3. Hi there, I left something printing on the weekend, and when I arrived today the printer was stopped in an early stage with an error saying there is no material. Both of them are there. One can see that the support material, PVA, is not printed. I "changed" it (unload, load, same spool, not event taking it out) and just a bit came out. The material came a bit out, but not much. I tired to resume the print but again an error. Is it possible the PVA is too old? cheers,
  4. Hi, A colleague brought me a sliced file to print out. He doesn't have the printer installed in his computer. I have taken the file, use the parts and sliced them again. When I send the to the printer, via network, they go to a queue "Waiting for first available" and never printing The printer is connected and online Why is this happening? Is it related to creating the files in another computer? thanks regards,
  5. great thanks for all the comments
  6. Ahá, now I saw what a Polybox is (I was thinking something different). 70 euros, something to think about. I'll put the PVA in an oven at 50ºC for two hours thanks
  7. I was afraid about it getting too much water. The PVA spool has been mounted since we have the printer (ca. 6 months). We use the printer often so it doesn't make sense to put it in and out I guess there is no solution for us thanks regards,
  8. Hi, I have changed the hotends to the 0.8 to try; the PVA didn't print correctly, then I changed back to 0.4 and after many problems for the XY calibration now the PVA is not working well. Attached two pictures; in one we can see how the support broke and fell of and in the other, during printing a strange layer. Why is this happening? thanks regards,
  9. Hi there, Yesterday the printed prompted me about the firmware update. I started it and today it is still "updating". It got stuck. Attached a picture showing it. What can I do? thanks regards,
  10. Shouldn't it be cleaner? or if it doesn't retract it is faster? Here another picture, there are many of these "loose threads" making a very bad looking result. Why is that?
  11. I got some traces on the infill (picture attached); I didn't change the Combing option; is this from combing or maybe the nozzle is not well aligned? it seems to make a noise when traveling some times thanks
  12. that was a fast answer! It will be some work to redo the letters (with Catia is very annoying); with the thin walls option it makes something a bit weird, but now it is readable; I'll print and see what happens thanks
  13. Hi, I'm building a plate to put nuts on it of with screws to have on my desk. Designed in Catia, exported to STL, imported in Cura 3.6. When I see the part with the solid view, I can see the letters (picture attached); one can see clearly the M, but when slicing it, in the layer view the M becomes 2 sticks and 1 point (no diagonal bars). It is very strange, can't the Ultimaker make this small detail? thanks regards,
