  1. Hello, I had a print "finish" with the last 10% or so of the print missing which I couldn't get my head round, long story short it turned out that the roll of filament I was supplied had a great big chunk missing from it. I'm trying to get to the bottom of what's happened - I've attached a picture for reference, it's a little frustrating though as this was a near 40 hour print and I didn't have enough material left in the roll to print another. I can't imagine this is something that happens very often if it's a manufacturing error, could it have been something to do with the printer? Thanks in advance, Kiran
  2. Hi there, In general I think the site looks and functions great there is however one major bug bear I have and that's when browsing through all of the wonderful materials that the ultimakers can use, there is NO FILTER OPTION. It's quite frustrating when you use the buzzwords in the e.g. impact resistant/uv resistant to find a filament which you think would be perfect for the job only to find out the filament size isn't compatible with your machine. I feel like I waste some time clicking on the data sheets to find out the compatibility. It would be nice if there was a filter option so I don't get disappointed and then have to spend more time trying to find an alternative. Thanks, Kiran
  3. Thanks for the ideas geert, I like what you said about applying the ink to the various materials. The ink is in a cartridge inside the printer but I could probably order a similar type that I could use for this testing. I was originally leaning more towards the idea of trying to coat the PLA with something that would make it more resistant to the ink, mould release or any lubricant won't work as the prints are being used in a clean room on parts which should have no contamination. I wouldn't know where to start with trying to find an appropriate coating but I think google is my friend for this one.
  4. Ok, that's good to know - thanks Smithy!
  5. Hi, I've had an issue a couple of times where I've undocked my Laptop to work in another room, come back and re-docked it (where the printer is plugged into the USB) and whatever I'm printing just stops and the printer practically reboots, is there a way to stop this? I could leave the USB disconnected but I'd rather not. Thanks in advance, Kiran
  6. Hi All, I have a work project where we are using UV ink in conjuction with some 3D printed parts (currently in PLA). The UV ink is sticking to the PLA Parts I was curious to know if there's a Filament out there for a UM2 that would cause the ink not to stick to the 3D print. I can find out more information about the ink if required. Thanks in Advance, Kiran
