  1. My nozzle in UM2E+ keeps clogging after few hours of printing, I checked the nozzle and it seems fine , I also checked and cleaned the extruder mechanism. The cooling fan to cool the heat break runs very slowly. Also there seems to be a leak of filament above the nozzle. Could someone point me in the right direction about what needs to be done, I have attached a picture for reference.
  2. Hello, The ultimaker frame has inspired me to use ACP sheets for the frame of my design. I went through the files of ultimaker 3 available to git hub. The joints of one frame and the next are intersecting into each other. Is that part of the design ? Has anyone used the drawings provided by ultimaker to make a product in ACP. I have attached a picture of a joint where there is an intersection. Would like to know if that is how ultimaker intended it to be or is it an error somewhere Thanks Hussain
  3. Thanks a lot for your suggestions @malcolmthemole I live in chennai as well !! Relative humidity reaches as high as 70% at times. Will try drying my filament and starting another print. I also noticed another thing that my sheet of tufnol was not flat , I had clipped it to the edges and it kind of had an unusual bend in few places, I plan to cut it into a smaller piece and use double side adhesive tape and stick it to a glass plate. Does adding PVA glue stick to the tufnol help in adhesion ? Also lastly, I read a few forums that mentioned printing a raft with PETG and then printing nylon over it. I also read a comment on youtube or somewhere that mentions the usage of teraoka tape that nylon sticks to with no problem. I hope in the future printing nylon becomes as easy as PLA, Regards, Hussain
  4. Thanks a lot for your feedback, I live in an extremely humid city, the brand new roll of filament absorbed moisture within few minutes after opening it. I think I will buy the Nylon bridge filament from taulman 3D as its supposed to have moisture resistance and good bed adhesion. Regards, Hussain
  5. @malcolmthemole Hi, I managed to get my hands on Tufnol and tried printing nylon on it, It managed to print the first layer before getting completely warped and dislocate from the bed surface. Would like to ask you if there is any other method of getting nylon to attach. The nylon I used had absorbed quite a lot of moisture and kept making a fizzing sound while being extruded, does this reduce the adhesive ability of Tufnol ?? Regards, Hussain.
  6. Thanks @malcolmthemole !. Will try getting "tufnol" seems to be more commonly available. Also wanted to know if Bakelite and Hylam are suitable,since they are made of Phenolic-resins as well Thanks again. Hussain.
  7. Hi, I am from India, We do not have the brand garolite here and hence would like to know if there are any alternate materials that can be used. I am trying to use Fr-4 glass epoxy sheets. These are layers of glass fibers compressed with resin. any suggestions would be useful Edit 1: The nylon simple peels of the glass epoxy sheet within a few minutes, it simply is unable to stick to the epoxy sheet.
  8. I Have recently purchased 3 Ultimaker 3 machines. I have updated the firmware on all three machines on installation. The X Y calibration has issues. The filament from extruder 2 will not extrude filament. This happens on all the machines. When I print with the second extruder alone it prints fine. But when I use dual printing it becomes a mess as the X and Y are not calibrated. Few others have faced this issue but unable to find a solution. Is there any way to go back to an oldfirmware from 5.2.8..... ??? I want to do this without opening the complete machine. EDIT 1: I planned on doing the firmware recovery method by opening up the machine . The site for downloading the image is not available http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/recovery.img. it gives an error 404 page not found
  9. The following site to download older firmware verisons is not available: http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/ It was up and running till yesterday.... is there any way to downgrade the firmware..

  12. Recently Bought 3 Ultimaker 3 3D printers.... Having the same issue on all of them. I am unable to calibrate the X Y offset as it gives me the following error Nozzle offset probe failed. Please check the nozzles and bed and try again. The bed seems fine as single extruders are working fine and sticking correctly. I have changed the print cores , and tried. Also the extruder 2 does not extrude any material during the X Y calibration, but prints fine by itself. when the print core is changed , the extruder 1 does not extrude. I have the latest firmware installed. I am having the issue on all 3 machines.
  13. Hi All, I am trying to make a Print table base plate for myself. The ultimaker 3 documents say its at about 3mm, Could some one confirm this ? The ultimaker that I saw had a much thicker base plate from what I can remember. Also is the thickness the same on the S5 ?? Regards, Hussain.
