  1. I love my Ultimaker 3E and I print mostly abrasive materials (Nylon CF). I have been happily running a Mosaic 1.75mm conversion kit in my #1 Extruder, stock 2.85mm in #2. Due to the abrasive materials I sent with dual Solex Hardcore AA and BB print cores using their ruby nozzles. Problem is, after about a year of use one print core I got a broken plastic body, the other a broken heat break. I have sent many emails and made many phone calls seeking to BUY replacement parts. No success and I don’t know what the status of their business is; TERRIBLE. Leads me to my question: Would anyone be interested in tungsten carbide inserted original brass Ultimaker nozzles? Planning for 0.8mm. Thoughts?
  2. I have now printed 2 of the same file and both time and only on this file the print has lost position, I am unsure whether it has hit something during the print, whether there is a motor/gear issue or whether it is a G-code issue. please see the pictures below. Any help would be massively appreciated, we have a critical job on and we need to figure out what is happened ASAP. Print was a 15 hour build using PET orange material with BASF material settings on the machine - not generic PET Feeder and gears have been tightened, we do have a a slightly rough bearing in the
  3. I updated to the latests Cura & the firmware from my S3 extended today & now Cura cant see the networked printer. I have been through the netwroking trouble shooting page twice now but no joy. The printer just doesnt show up even when its IP address is put directly into Cura. Any else seeing this problem with the latest updates?
  4. Hello everybody, this morning after a few weeks from my last print, I resumed operations with my UM3 again. Unfortunately as soon as it started to heat up the print bed, the printer rebooted itself. I tried a factory reset but nothing changed... then I found a similar topic on this forum suggesting to reduce the power budget parameter in the um3.json file from 221 to 200 (available via ssh in developer mode). After this change, the printer started to work again... btw the point of this topic is to better understand which are the pros and cons of this tweak. As per my understanding my current power brick is not supplying UM3 with enough power... so 1 mln dollar question: do I need to replace it or it's good to leave the parameter set to 200? Can this tweak cause any damage to the hw? Thanks [Update] After a few minutes it failed again because of another power cycle.
  5. Hello. I have the problem you see in the picture Those "jerkings", "Jumps", are afecting not only the looks, but the final size of the printing, and making it very hard to create components with the right tolerance. Even on square pieces, when it gets to the corners I get this kind of "niple". I don't get a straight angle. In this circles you can see, that every side, when ends, instead of moving smooth to the next segment/side, it has a jerk/overshooting like finishing. I have checked belts and they seem to be tight. Might be there any setting that I should look at?, or is it maybe some specific hardware I should be looking at? Any good suggestion??
  6. Hi All, I'm encountering calibration problems. I tried to calibrate manually, but at the moment I need to adjust the gap with the calibration card I'm confronted with a gap>4.0mm. For the record: when calibrating automatically, the endresult is a message to check my nozzle or the buildplate. the glass plate is shiny clean and the nozzle is empty and clean. Reading and searching for similar problems/topics with solutions, is not getting me very happy with all of the SW problems. And even when I want to load an older version it seems not to be possible, is it? I realy need the S3 in working modus at the moment, so I ordered a new mainboard and displayboard for de S3. Where can I find an older SW version like SW5.7.3? Or is there another version from wich it is possible to upgrade later if the latest version will be stable? Tnxx guys& gal's
  7. After a lot of searching through Cura settings, UM support pages, and community forums, I am embarrassed to say that I'm not sure how to get my new material from Cura over to my Ultimaker 3 so that it's added to the list of recognized material types for loading new spools. Isn't Cura supposed to send new materials over to the printer somehow? This didn't happen at the time I created the new material in the Preferences -> Materials tab, and it didn't happen when I sent the print job over to the printer, either. How do I force the materials to sync? I want to use my spool of MatterHackers HIPS 2.85mm as a support filament for Extruder 2. (Extruder 1 contains MatterHackers PETG 1.75mm through a Mosaic 1.75mm->2.85mm adapter.) Here is what I did: Set my active extruder to Extruder 1 in order to be able to see 1.75mm diameter filaments in Cura Preferences -> Materials. Duplicated the "Generic HIPS" material in Cura 4.7 beta. Changed its diameter to 2.85mm and updated its name and several other settings. In order to be able to view the material again after changing its diameter, I had to switch the active extruder to Extruder 2. Changed the active extruder back to Extruder 1. Started the print. Saw the message on the printer about needing to load materials "HIPS". Placed the spool onto the printer, pressed Select Manually, scrolled through the list of available materials, and did not see HIPS. What am I doing wrong here? What's the right way to get new materials over to the printer? Thanks!
  8. About a year ago, the company I work for got a Ultimaker 3 (E), but until about a month ago it was used and maintained by the IT guy. He recently left and I was put in charge of it. I didn't have any issues until I tried to do PVA with the BB 0.4 core. Right away, the print head started making a noise and nothing extruded. I've tried hot pulls and cold pulls for hours, but this clog doesn't seem to budge. Now, I got some cleaning filament to extrude from it, but it bubbles and stays on the nozzle. We've only ever used Ultimaker filament, but I'm not sure what material the old IT guy used with the BB 0.4. I got a new core ordered, but this is really grinding my gears. Thanks, Ranch
  9. Recently purchased a refurbished ultimaker 3 (first 3d printer) and went to welcome setup. The first thing it did was bash into the back left corner. So I looked it up, performed the steps and found out it's the y limit switch. It makes the click but doesn't register. There doesn't seem to be any further information on how to resolve this on any of the other forum posts, and this website only redirects you to the troubleshooting page (with no solution in there) or the forums... anyone know how to actually get help with this?
  10. Hello Ultimaker community, I am relatively new to 3D printing and I am having trouble solving this problem! Below is an image of an assistive device I am trying to print but i am having trouble trying to print the support material! Within the blue circle there is supposed to be a layer of support material but for some reason it will not stick to the initial layer, and in red on the upper half of the green boarder the support material is very blobbled and not working well where on the lower half its working great! MY original print worked well then i made some edits and tried to reprint it i started having these problems. I have already tried drying out the PVA support material, and i am unsure if it is the nozzle bc some parts are printing cleanly?
  11. Hello! I am relatively new to the 3D printing industry and am having trouble with my Ultimaker 3 2nd nozzle. I am almost certain it is clogged as no filament that comes out of it. I tried to do a hot and cold pull, as well as poking a needle in the end to try and break up any hardened filament and both do not appear to be working. Does anyone know how to unclog the nozzle?? i also read online that you can remove it, however most cites also say that you need to have the print nozzle clean before you can remove it so I am confused and stuck!
  12. Hi. Our compagny use a Ultimaker 3 ex for la long time (2 years) and this morning I witness a weird problem. I sent a 22 hours job print yesterday (small print). This morning, I was in front on the printer then suddently, it stop. Stop, meaning the the head stop moving, the top light shut down, the screen still continue his countdown too. I think it was still remaining 15 minutes to end the job. I think that LED of the head was OFF, so no heating too. So, for 10 minutes I let the countdown go. Just before the end I did touch the bed and found out that the Z-axis was not powered. I restart the printer and try to unload the filament: the head did not heat up. I restart the printer again, goes to manual setting of the printercore1, then unload the filament by hand (the wire was damage before the bowden). I reseat the printer head and check for bad connection: no problem found. I restart the printer and load the filament: everything turn good. Did someone experience such problem before ? Eric
