  1. I’m currently using the cc 0.6 without issues. I suppose the risk is that the profiles aren’t tuned for the UM3. Some more info here - https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/8944
  2. For what it's worth - printing with either the BVOH or the standard PVA profiles, the FormFutura BVOH filament seems to print extremely well and very cleanly - Really impressed so thank you for the tips. However, I am still struggling with ASA material (Both FormFutura and Fillamentum brands) bonding to the BVOH support material...
  3. Hi @Gero, any chance of a link to the files for the adaptors to feed the filament. Nicest ones I’ve seen! Thanks
  4. Hi @Torgeir, Thanks for the info. I think I was resigned to the fact that I would have to replace one of the boards, but I was hoping to pinpoint whether it was the mainboard or the ulticontroller/display board. I've managed to find a discounted kit with next day delivery so fingers crossed.
  5. Hi @tinkergnome, Thanks for the feedback. - No difference with or without the encoder attached. I also tried with the display connected and without (As I believe this is powered off EXP1) but still no difference. - I took the black housings off whilst testing the pinouts/cables. - The connectors can only slide in one way due to the notches on the housings. I ended up putting tape on one connector each end to make sure I wasn't mixing them up (Similar to your photos).
  6. Thanks Torgier, good to know glueing it back might be a possible fix but I can actually get in held in place fairly well with the 4 tabs on the housing, so much so that you can feel the feedback when turning/'clicking in'. However, lets assume this is faulty, would this actually stop the rest of the board loading? I would have thought the display would at least still work and load? And doesn't explain why with EXP1 connected, Cura can't see the board over USB...
  7. Hello, Hoping for some help/advice. Recently sold my working UM2(+) which was sent via courier but upon arrival, looks like it was knocked during handling and nothing was working. I've since got it back and starting to try to diagnose. There seems to be power on the board. The hotend fan is working as this is permanently on on the earlier boards. The display and control knob aren't powering on. Cura doesn't recognise the printer when plugged in over USB on a Mac. I've got it to a point now were: - With the board completely stripped/removed f
  8. CC core received. The UM3 accepts it but warns it's not compatible with selected material (PLA), which seems strange but you just continue as normal. Cura on the otherhand, whilst it can see the CC 0.6 on the printer, doesn't allow you to select it (And playing around with a S3, the CC core is missing from the dropdown list when using custom settings). To fix this: 1. Rename/copy/backup the file ultimaker_s3_cc06.inst.cfg found in: /Applications/Ultimaker Cura.app/Contents/Resources/resources/variants (This is on a Mac) to ultimaker3_

  10. Hello @flyinggorilla - Just checking, do you still use the BB print cores for the BVOH filament? Thanks
  11. As long as you are happy using ssh via terminal/putty then yes, and the instructions are fairly clear. Alternatively if you have a windows pc, Bondtech have released a handy installer that will do the changes for you. And yes this needs to be done everytime there is a firmware update, tho those are few and far between now with the older UM3. However, I was surprised we had one recently to bring it up to date with the digital factory and I read somewhere there might be one more early next year, which is encouraging cough cough intent profiles!!!
  12. @Jls667 - The exact technical difference I'm not 100% on but the DDG is just the drive gears/housing but still uses the existing UM motor, whilst the QR also includes the motor and you need to run the cabling down the back on the unit. I believe both are still duel drive and hardened... I think the DDG works out cheaper and less of a 'change' compared to the QR, but I'm still happy with the QRs. @Smithy - Thank you for the feedback. Fingers crossed for some Black Friday deals to jump in on for the CC cores!
  13. Personally I'm a fan of the Bondtech QRs - Already have one UM3 converted and looking at doing another one soon, always found the position of the extruders lower down a bit of a pain and filament insertion is a breeze on the QRs. Does anyone know what actually happens with the CC core on a UM3 - Does Cura still recognise the core and accept it on a UM3 (Maybe with a yellow warning box or similar)? Does the printer still accept it but with an override confirmation button? Thanks
