  1. BASF Ultrafuse PCTG Z ESD appeared to be the easiest to source in the Netherlands. It is also available in the Cura marketplace, but there is no profile for the S3 (I already emailed the vendor): https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/materials/Essentium/Ultrafuse_Z_PCTG
  2. Ughhh... user error... the material did not have a S3 compatible profile, which is why the printer was not accepting the material profile.... A bit of a more descriptive error would have been nice?
  3. What about BASF Ultrafuse PCTG Z ESD?
  4. Ok this did not work for me... "NOTE: you can import these profiles into Cura and Cura will send the materials to Ultimaker S5 on the next restart of Cura." This is not happening for me either. Is this a problem with the S3?
  5. Ugh... you are right... I had a gut feeling things were not as straightforward (literally) There's a good description here: http://www.kronosrobotics.com/using-a-dragknife I'll see if it makes sense to hack this into the SVGToolPath plugin.
  6. Hi, When the UM3 came to market with it's hot-swappable print-cores I was eagerly waiting for the first custom functionality through print cores, but it appears not much has happened yet. I finally had a good project to justify spending some time to build a vinyl cutter core. We took apart an off the shelf Roland Blade holder that turned out to have all kinds of interesting bits and pieces and combined it with an Ultimaker core using a printed adapter: The plan is to use it in combination with the SVGToolpathReader Cura plugin. It has some advantages over traditional roller plotters especially when dealing with sensitive materials. Of course this could also be extended to bring back the pen plotter. We are still working through some last issues (mostly involved with tricking the printer) and hope to have first cuts this week. Would anyone be interested in this solution? I am planning to release the models on Youmagine. Would anyone be interested in buying pre-assembled units if it is a plug-and-play solution? Regards, Joris
