  1. 10/16/2020.......Latest firmware and cura 4.7.1. Ultimaker 5S, ethernet connected. A week ago after latest update my printer disconnects after a few seconds in Cura. I can connect with the digital factory, but file sent to print does not show up on my printer. Has anybody fixed this yet?
  2. I read this fascinating article about injection printing with a a standard printer. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2214860420308411?dgcid=author. . Has anybody tried it? Maybe customize Cura to do it?
  3. I have decided not to sell it. Once I got it setup it is the best printer I have ever owned. Although expensive for a toy.
  4. Available mid-May. After I have finished printing PPE. Lightly used Ultimaker S 5 3D printer. This is considered the top of the line desktop FFF printer. I bought it 3 months ago to print PPE for my local hospital, medical clinics, Dentists and my barber. It has only been used for hobby related prints and my current project. The AA 0.4 printhead has only printed 9.4 reels of filament. The BB 0.4 less than one. Prior to this machine I had only been familiar with Formlabs printers. This Machine works like a dream, but has way more features than I will ever need. I don’t think I will ever print in nylon X, or using support material. I bought a Simi-Truck when I need a pickup. It is in perfect condition. Please note: It does not have A WIFI CARD ON THE MOTHER BOARD. This is because it was originally shipped to Israel and in 2018 Ultimaker was still finalizing their wireless agreements. That said I have been using a network extender and plugging the ethernet cable in to it. I will include a new network extender. The unit can be shipped to Rbrc8 in Tennessee and for $370 they will insert the card recalibrated the machine and ship it to you. WHAT’S IN THE BOX? Glass Plate (already installed) Spool Holder with Material Guide Power Cable Ethernet Cable USB Stick 2 x Ultimaker Print Core AA 0.4 (one Print Core AA is already installed) 1 x Ultimaker Print Core BB 0.4 (already installed) XY Calibration Sheet - Glass Plate Calibration Card 3 x Nozzle Cover Glue Stick Oil Grease Hex Screwdriver 2mm Roughly $400-500 of filament I would prefer local pick up and cash. Shipping is possible but shipping and insurance costs are the buyer’s responsibility.
  5. I am printing the Prusa PPE face shields. I brought the stl part into Fusion360 to tinker with it. The imported dimensions were grossly off compared to the real dimensions. See the values below. The drawing on the right is my redesign. When I send it to Cura 4.6 the model is in a very small size. Cura does not show the dimensions I used but on the build plate and in real life the print is very small. I could use some explaining, please.
  6. Good to know. Did you tinker with any of the jerk setting or infill settings?
  7. This started yesterday. I opened a previously printed file (macOS ). The model is opened as one would expect, then 2 seconds later the arrangement changes. It rearranges to look like this. It loses it's orientation. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. No, I think the jerk setting and slower infill speeds helped. The clear covering material I bought at Staple's for twice the price is what did not laser cut well.
  9. I like the minimalist head band but the holes are different from what I am printing and I do not want to change the laser cutters settings. Here is a photo of my last PETG print. Hardly any debris.
  10. For some reason using some of your settings I don't see any stringiness. I am printing at a layer thickness of .3. I found a sign maker with a laser cutter. Each face plate is between $1-2 depending on the material. The acrylic is the more expensive. I tried thick .17mm PVC, but the laser generated chlorine gas, and did not cut well.
  11. Good news, I used some of your settings and my prints turned out much better. Do yo have any idea if the bottom and top patterns being concentric makes a difference?
  12. Hi @Diego_Medics3D, Are you in the San Diego Area? If so I am also printing for a local medical facility. If you have defined areas of need I may also be able to help.
  13. Voilá....All will be revealed. I put a .txt behind your file and it opened.
  14. That is the problem I have a Mac. I tried opening in Textedit but did not work.
  15. Can you give me the Clift Notes on the major settings?
  16. I opened your profile. Here is all I got. Extruder 1 and 2 tabs were blank.
  17. Thanks here it is. UMS5_Shield with moved pins.3mf
  18. Which particular travel and jerk settings?
  19. Yes a S 5. It is Overture PETG black. I ordered two and they print the same. I will try the CPE settings with reduced jerk. I have included another photo that shows what looks like a shirt but I asked Cura for a brim. Any thoughts?
  20. I am having issues printing in PETG. PLA was a breeze, until I ran out of it. I have tried various temperature ranges from 2:35 up to 250. Reducing the infill. Increasing the build plate temperature to a maximum of 75. I can’t seem to approach the quality of using PLA. Does anybody know why I have so much more debris in my machine with printing PETG? Any help would be appreciated.
  21. I found out via Ultimaker support that Israel has some sort of restrictions on wifi devices. So my printer never had wifi. I bought my printer on eBay from Israel.
  22. I am up and running. Prints are turning out great. I bought my printer from a person in Israel. It was sent in two boxes. I got the printer in the first box, but no spool holder, Bowden tubes, pva...etc. I found a spool holder on Thingaverse and printed it on my Formlabs printer. I tried to use ice maker tubing for the Bowden tubing but that failed. Had to wait until fbrc8.com sent the tubing. I could not get wifi to work just ethernet port. I eventually found out via Ultimaker support that Israel has some sort of restrictions on wifi devices. The machine I bought did not have wifi. I added an Apple AirPort Express to the ethernet port . Now I have wifi. So my Rube Goldberg device seems to be working well, all is good
