  1. I've been trying for months now to print quite a tricky part out of CPE and CPE+ (boss's orders). However, the PVA supports I've been using just wont print well with the high temps required for these two materials. There's always oozing and stringing, which gets trapped between layers and compromises the structural integrity of the part. But equally frustrating is that the CPE just wont adhere to the PVA and warps like crazy. I was hoping to try using HIPS as an alternative to the PVA, since it has a much closer nozzle and build plate temp., but I cant seem to find anything on whether CPE and CPE+ can hold up to the limonene required to dissolve the HIPS. We haven't purchased the HIPS filament or solvent yet so I haven't been able to physically test it. Any advice or print suggestions?
  2. Ciao, è da un po' di mesi che cerco una soluzione per un ingranaggio testando vari materiali tecnici, come Tough PLA, Durabio, Nylon, Policarbonato e CPE+ finalmente ho trovato una soluzione perché il doppio ingranaggio si rompeva sempre nella parte più piccola, ma ho dovuto fare un mix tra la stampa 3D e un altro ingranaggio in acciaio. La stamapante che sto usando è una ultimaker S5, non ho provato con materiali caricati perché attualmente non ho l'ugetto C-C necessario per quei materiali. In questo video trovate i vari test. https://youtu.be/WH3fH85vcqo Saluti Marco
  3. Hello, I would like some help with the printing of a gauntlet. It is being printed in PLA Tough and generating support with the material itself, however in the circular part that is shown in the images it is noticed that the part printed on the support looks bad, with aesthetically unpleasant finish. The following parameters have already been changed in Cura, they are: Printing temperature lowered by 10ºC; The distance Z of the support in relation to the piece is 0.4 mm (maximum allowed by the slicer without impairing the impression) that same value is applied to the Top Distance and Bottom Distance; Print speed tested at 50, 45, 40 and 35 mm/s; 30% support fill; Support Interface activated with thickness equal to 1 mm, Interface Resolution of 0.4 mm, Interface Desnity of 100% and Pattern Zig Zag: None of this had the desired effect, I am printing with only 1 extruder nozzle. What can I try to change to improve this print appearance? printed part on the support (bad appearance): good looking printing support:
  4. It seems like it should be an option on Cura 4.4 but I don't see it. If I load the same filament into both materials, it seems there should be a way for the UM5 to auto switch if/when filament runs out mid print. I would love to have this feature. we have ordered the material handling station but they have not actually released it yet...so I am stuck. We run 2x UM5s nearly 24/7. With the machines not pushing notifications to us that filament ran out, we have to keep a very close eye on things and I find myself with many almost out spools that I have to manage trying to find good times to use up. Thanks for any help on this...
  5. Hallo zusammen, möchte einige kleinere Teile mit dem Ultimaker CPE+ Filament drucken. Drucker ist ein UM2+, Düse Olsson Ruby 0,4mm. Zur besseren Haftung auf dem Bett habe ich Dimafix besorgt. Die Teile sollten möglichst sauber gedruckt werden die Druckzeit ist egal. Dachte an eine Layerhöhe von 0,1mm. Kann mir jemand ein paar Infos bzgl. Düsen-Temp., Bett-Temp., Lüftung und Druckgeschwindigkeit geben ? Danke und Gruß, Dirk
  6. Hi HO Habe leider noch was zum Fragen ^^ Ich versuche schon seit einer weile mit CPE und CPE+ zu drucken, bekomme dieses aber nicht gleichmäßig zum haften. Habe ich schon mehrfach gedruckt einfach auf die Glasplatte. Ging manchmal super bei CPE, hatte super Haftung, sogar mehr als das Glas an sich selber, wenn ihr versteht ^^ Aber dann haftete es wiederum überhaupt nicht. Da ich nicht weitere Glasplatten opfern will suchte ich nach anderen wegen die eine zuverlässige Haftung bieten. Bluetape: geht gar nicht Adhesion Sheets von Ultimaker: Haftet so gut, dass man es nicht los bekommt Klebestift: Geht auch nicht, den ich eh nie benutzte aber hier mal benutzt habe geht auch nicht ? Habt ihr noch gute Tipps für dieses Material. Da es von Ultimaker ist habe ich erwartet: Reinhängen und fertig ^^ Manchmal bin ich halt auch gerne Faul. Grüsse zpm3altantis
  7. I have used PC in my UM3 for functional prototypes and it works very well. I am now trying CPE+ and it too is working well also. I am just wondering what the difference in strength is between the two materials. I have the data sheets and understand them, but can anyone tell me (from experience) which material is stronger? Again, this is just because I am curious and can not find an answer about this anywhere. Both materials are working well for me so far and both break after too much abuse. The picture attached is a section view of part of a product that mounts a cell phone to handlebars.
  8. Hello everyone, like the title says, I would like to glue two pieces of CPE+. Should I use a Cyano based (SuperGlue), or ABS glue (acetone based)? Thanks for the help
  9. Hello all, We are trying to print clear CPE+ but so far have not had much luck. The main problem we are having is the scorching marks seen in the images and also large clumping of material on the prints. It seems it builds up on the print nossle before dislodging itself and getting stuck inside the print. Does anyone know of a way to improve the print result for CPE+? Settings / Hardware / Filiament used are below: Ultimaker 3 Filament: ColorFabb_HT 2.85mm CURA Version: 3.2.0 AA 0.4 head 0.06 Layer Height 100% infill Print Temperature: 262 C Build Plate Temperature: 110 C Flow: 110% Retraction Enabled Print Speed: 20mm/s Thank you all in advance.
  10. Guten Tag liebe Forums Mitglieder Wie der Title schon vermuten lässt suche ich nach einem Material, das ich in meinem Aquarium bedenkenlos anwenden kann und natürlich ist auch die Frage ob schon jemand damit Erfahrungen gemacht hat? Erstmal die Frage die Ihr euch vielleicht stellt, warum möchte ich Sachen für mein Aquarium drucken? Darauf zu antworten ist ganz einfach, ich gebe mich mit den Lösungen aus dem Aquariumgeschäft nicht zufrieden. Ich will es perfekt haben und so wie ich es will. Da ein Aquarium nun mal biologisch Aktiv ist, geht PLA schon mal nicht. Dann bin ich noch auf XT von Colorfabb gekommen. Da habe ich sogar schon bei Colorfabb nachgefragt, mit folgender Antwort Zitat: In theory colorFabb_XT can be used in aquariums. Due to certain FDA approvals we can assure that the migration of materials is very low to water, food, etc. so it can be used, but there are of course print settings, water temprature, etc. to be considered - which we cannot influence of course. Das klingt schon mal nicht schlecht. Aber dann gibt es nun noch andere Materialien wie CPE und CPE+ welche ich auch bei mir auf Lager habe. Nur dazu habe ich keine Informationen und bei Ultimaker nachfragen geht auch nicht wirklich so einfach wie es bei Colorfabb war (Samstag 23.00 Email gesendet und Montag 8.33 Antwort bekommen). Eine andere Möglichkeit wäre auch noch Kunstharz aus meinem Form 2 Drucker, doch als ich dort diese Frage im Forum geschrieben habe wurde ich in der Luft zerrissen :/ Also was meint Ihr zu dem Thema? Freundliche Grüsse zpm3atlantis
  11. Recently put CPE+ in as Material 1 (AA 0.4 Core) in my Ultimaker 3 and got a message on the display of the machine: "...CPE+ Black is not recommended to be used in PrintCore AA 0.4" I saw a similar message about TPU95 earlier. I've run these in the past and did not get this message. Bypassing the message lets me run them, but wanted to find out if something has changed as far as recommended settings for these materials? Or is this a firmware bug?
