  1. Thank you . I will be buing the S5 by the end of the year.
  2. I really like the product but it surprises me that for it to print the second most used filament like ABS you need to adjust the printer. And again UM3 is not cheap. I just expect that at that price the door would be default. I know there is the core exchange technology and that costs research and i am also paying for the research. I really like the printer reliability and quality, but for the price it should be a solid choice for PLA / ABS / Nylon print without adjustments.
  3. Actually no. I was told there is no kit and i should go to third party. That was yesterday in Hannover. I found it on the website now. https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/49779-installing-the-advanced-3d-printing-kit-for-the-ultimaker-3 The representative mentioned that a door i can buy or build would solve 80% of the problem. Third parties produce complete enclosure kits.https://www.matterhackers.com/store/l/ultimaker-3-enclosure-kit/sk/MJPRFC8C
  4. Version 1.0.0


    This is a suggestion to develop a new type of support that gows from the side of the printed part instead of the print bed. This could reduce material used for support and reduce print time. I have done two tests to compare, the design can be improved and i am sure a slincing algorythm can be added maybe in "Cura" to have Ramification support. I added Pictures and the models of two comparative parts. Let me know what you think and if you can develop the algorythm. This is totally open source suggestion i claim no right for. I only would like it to be named "Ramificaitons". (STL need to be rotated 90 degrees)
  5. So you are telling me a 3600+ $ printer does not come with a door. I actually met yesterday with sales people from Ultimaker and voiced my feedback on the problem. The company does not sell a kit . I can only buy a third party enclosure or build one. But I think Ultimaker 3 is the only expensive pritner without a door,very unique feature.
  6. I have recently decided to purchase Ultimaker 3 becasue of all positive reviews and the features it has. Ultimaker 3 is perfect with printing PLA. I am printing extreemly small parts and extreemly large and it goes great. However , i started printing ABS with the default cura settings , but the ABS is not provided by Ultimaker. (Third party , high end ABS). My print did not stick well on glass, with or without glue. I added a PEI layer on the glass . The part still delaminated sometimes and there was a lot of warping !
  7. Hello community, I am new here. I designed a new type of support that is built from the walls of a printed part and not from the print base. It saves print time and Filament quantity. The Pictures and design are posted on Thingiverse. Do you think the algorithm for it can be developped ? https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3405812
