  1. The title says it all. I'm looking to print something that is like rubber or silicone for a client. Even if there's no such filament that soft and flexible, what would be the closest possible filament to work with?
  2. Hi all i was wondering if someone could help me as to why my Nylon print came out fury. I used Ultimaker material with Ultimaker Natural PVA as support with the standard pre-set material setting and i have all these stringy/ curly bits all over the print. Can anybody help with setting change i might need to make to get a smooth consistent finish. I have attached some pictures showing my issues
  3. Hi every time i try to load material lately i am getting a error message. It says multiple materials found load one material at a time. I am loading Ultimaker materials not aftermarket ones how do i fix this issue see attached image also when starting a print i get another message stating conflicts basically the printer think the wrong materials have been loaded. Any help fixing these two issues would be much appreciated. again image attached for second issue BTW i am using an Printer
  4. Hi guys, Lately we are encountering a lot of bonding issues with breakaway and nylon (see pictures). We got the same issues with Tough PVA and breakaway. I do not understand how this can happen, knowing that on the lower side, it is impossible to remove all the breakaway material. But on the overhang side, it seems that there is no adhesion at all.... Also I'm using standard profiles with no modifications. with 0.4 print cores, at 0.15mm height. UM3E, Cura 4.6 Please help 😭
  5. Greetings All, We recently purchased a S5 Pro bundle and I am in the process for getting it setup, received it last week. I have some questions about how the material station behaves and I haven't been able to find answers in the manual or the forum, so here goes. I just had my first NFC fail - this seems be not uncommon - after a bit of mucking around I understand I can safely set the filament type during loading to a generic version on the printer interface. My understanding is that the generic material settings are the same as the ultimaker materials by default.
  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
  7. We recently changed the Filament from Ultimaker PLA White to Ultimaker PLA Silver metallic. The print shown in the pictures is the first print after the material change, it shows signs of underextrusion that didn't occur with the white PLA Filament. We removed the Material out of the Bowden-Tube and saw the scratch marks that produced by the Feeder which wasn't the case before. I would like to know if anyone knows what the problem could be or has some ideas.
  8. I am trying to implement Breakaway in an academic maker space and I am running into some issues with surface quality. To start: I am using a UM3 with Ultimaker brand PLA and Breakaway. The machine being used for the test is serviced on a monthly basis and has no other issues. Slicer settings: (Default for Cura if not stated) Layer height: .1 Infill: 40% Model Extruder: Extruder 1 (PLA) Support Extruder: Extruder 2 (Breakaway) Support Z distance: .1 Prime Tower: Enabled I came to these settings after looking through the forums
  9. Hy! I want to print the 3D part which can be found in the attachment. The component is designed for outdoor use therefore PLA cannot be used. Our experience is that the part exposed to solar radiation is deformed. For the printing I use original ultimaker abs filament and RS PRO PVA HT+ which is based on the manufacturer's description excellent adherence to ABS. My poblem is the ABS dont adherence to special PVA material. Print settings ABS: 245°C nozzle PVA HT+: 225 °C nozzle Bed: 100 °C cooling is always off To the bed I use UHU glue and its smoothed with w
  10. I am looking for the best material to print inspection fixtures for our coordinate measuring machine (CMM). The parts that we will be measuring are small and the fixtures will need to bend slightly to clamp the part and hold it. The dimensional accuracy is only relatively important but the most important is the extended lifespan of the fixture through the bending. We have a Ultimaker 3 and are open to trying any materials. Thanks! Please let me know if you have any questions about the application or requirements and I will answer them.
  11. Hello do you know if CPE+ can endure ammoniac? I need to print a bottle and that bottle will contain hand disinfection containing alcohol and I've been told that something like that can be printed with cpe+, but I can't find it anywhere online if cpe+ can endure ammoniac. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
  12. I currently have problems with support material in a UM3 and Cura 4.6.0 1. UM PVA I had used this material in the past and it worked well with the standard settings (NFC). But in the last prints there is almost no flow and prints look like this: When loading the PVA it is flowing out of the BB 0.4 and even a brim is printed , but not entirely. Printing temperatur is 215°C. Standby temerature in the material setting 175 °C, but 100 °C in the printing profile (?). The PVA has become mostly white after printing. The PVA is now 15 months old, most time store in a v
  13. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong? This is my first time trying to use the Ultimaker brand breakaway material with my Ultimaker s3. I have loaded the material into the machine, no problem. The issue comes when I try to load a model into the Cura software, and update material settings, but it says "Not supported"? Is it something I am doing with my model, the material, or Cura? I am trying to print a custom pint glass. Any ideas? Thanks!
  14. Dear All, This is my firts post in this community. I am working with Cura 4.6 and I cannot load a Material or even create a material. I know there are some buttons that you can create or activate a material but for some reason these buttons are deactivated and it doesnt allows me to click on them. Find in the picture attached. How can I activate these buttons (red circle) or how can I add a material? Thank you for your help. Martin
  15. Hello, I need to print some prototypes with Ultimaker PC material, on our S5 printers. Was curious if anyone tried printing with some kind of Breakaway material as support(I have the one from Smartfill) and had success on small prints. Also, do you have any tips/tricks for printing with it? What settings do you use for support, when using PC as support, not something else. Any other tips? Thanks a lot. Cosmin
  16. Has anyone else tried this filament? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GP31WY6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It is easily the shiniest PLA filament I have experienced. Very smoothly wound and tangle free. The spool fits on the UM3 Extended perfectly. These are the copper. I have also tried the gold. It's a little yellow for my taste, but still very shiny.
  17. I hate printing with PVA though it is sometimes necessary. Just recently, I have had to print a structure which needs 6 separate columns of PVA along the lines of what you see in the attached photo. I needed these to go up to about 60mm height at which level they would do their support work. The problem is that half these columns were knocked off the vertical before they had got higher than 20 mm. This is a new reel of PVA with no obvious signs of having taken on moisture. I was using a prime tower to avoid uneccesary stringing etc. I couldn't use Breakaway as this is a fragile structure.
  18. Hello, I installed new version of CURA today, removed old version and... deleted my materials database... Anyone can help me out? PLA, ABS... that's all I need 🙂 Don't know the parameters for sure... Thx!
  19. Hello everyone, I would like to get some advises/experience from you with the Tough PLA (white) . Printing on a brand new S5, I'm getting always the same problem on each part I'm printing with the tough PLA (see attached pictures). I'm printing in closed room with aspirated air. To resolve the issue, I've made the common verification...Bed Level, Stable support, No play in the axles of the printer, sliced the model on latest Cura 4.4. The issue seems to be less important when I lower the temp, but I'm getting very far from the initial print temp as I'm now
  20. Hi I have been trying to print the Ultimaker Nylon but the parts keep warping from the bed, First I tried with Glue stick as recommended, then tried it with the Dimma fix adhesive spray and the part still warped. The part had a brim, first the bed was at 70 degrees and I tried it at 95 degrees with the Dimma fix as well but they all warped. The prints tend to be very long about 10 hours, even with the Dimma fix at 95 degrees the part warped after about 6 hours of printing. Anyone have experience printing large Nylon prints?
  21. I am looking for a high temp filament that is fairly easy to print on our Ultimaker S5, that will be able to print at 0.06mm layers. We currently outsource these parts in a SLA resin called Accura Bluestone (which has a HDT of 270°c once thermally post-cured). We need it to take about 145-150°c without warping. The parts will be under NO load, and will be metalized most of the time. Is there any such filament out there? Thanks in advance!
  22. @Ultimaker: So today I took a closer look at the TPU print, where after the first layers I switched the old, nearly empty TPU spool I had dried with a PrintDry previously out for a brand new one that was still in its plastic packaging. *After* the switch, the print quality gets much worse, with very bad stringing, surface irregularities and the like - in short, everything that you would expect of a spool of wet material. I find it outrageous that the premium Ultimaker materials are packaged this way (just cardboard and thin plastic shrink wrap around it, which sometimes
  23. Hello everyone, I just wanted to warn you about an issue about a recent purchase (from the awesome supplier @Dim3nsioneer) You have an issue in your production line. I bought a Tough PLA white but it says Breakaway in one side and PLA one the other! NFC tag says PLA (tested).
  24. Bonjour. Est-ce que quelqu'un pourrait m'indiquer où sont sauvegarder les matériaux que l'on crée nous même. Car j'ai UM 3.4.1 qui s'est planté, et j'ai tout perdu mes profils. Merci beaucoup.
  25. Hi! I am using Ultimaker 2+ for prototyping components of machines. These parts are not geometrically complicated nor have fine details, but I want these prototypes to be more or less functional, so the priorities are: - Dimensional stability (the lowest warping) - good mechannical properties (specially critical is the layer adhesion). Up to now, I have used PLA, which has a good dimensional stability, but its mechannical behaviour is not so good, and ABS, which is quite stronger but only works well when the pieces doesn't have long and straight faces or walls (contr
