  1. Hello, I'm using CPE+ a lot and the results are really great. However, with fresh spools it happens quite often that the filament slips off the spool and entangles somewhere. That happend on a UM3 and on a UMS3. I'm using the ultimaker CPE+ filament. And with PLA or other materials I never observed this issue. Does anybody have experience with this behavior and knows how to avoid it? Thanks in advance! Johannes
  2. Does anyone knows if it´s possible to create own nfc tags for the UM3? The tags from the UM spools can be read from my Samsung S7, but the data format is unknown.
  3. I have access to another UM printer. The UM2 prints the size expected, mine prints differently on the x and y axis (my UM3 prints slightly larger on each, but different percent on each axis. Z seems OK). I will get exact measurements tomorrow, but Has anyone seen this before? Any suggestions on correcting? I first noticed this when printing parts for another 3d printer that needs the parts to run. Any assistance or advice is apprecited.
  4. I was doing manual leveling and follow it with active leveling once a time every month, mostly. No matter how i manual level the nozzles, whenever active leveling is done, the printer will always press nozzle 2 too close to buildplate once print is started. I can see the nozzle was so close that it got pushed back a bit upwards, so close that filament cannot print out of it. Core 1 will always be fine and well calibrated, while Core 2 will always be too close to bed, after active leveling. Either the active leveling is buggy, or the result of Z calibration be
  5. Hoi, Vervolg van mijn eerdere topic: UM3 print niet meer na update Firmware UM3 van versie 4.3.3 naar 5.2.16. Omdat een Firmware downgrade niet geholpen heeft, de printer stopt met printen tijdens de offset kalibratie en start opnieuw op, zit ik toch te denken dat het probleem ergens anders door veroorzaakt wordt. Alle testen van de x- en y-as gaan goed maar op het moment dat er vermogen gevraagd wordt, bed en extruder opwarmen gaat het fout. Printer schakelt zich uit en start zichzelf opnieuw op, als of de spanning er even af gehaald is. Wordt het probleem veroo
  6. un peu de pub pour nos amis espagnols sur le forum du même nom (espagnol). le sujet en question j'y avait songé, je ne l'avais pas encore vu réalisé, il l'a fait. ok le sujet date un peu, je me réveille tard mais l'idée est excellente. bravo @M-RAGA
  7. So first off, I'm ideally looking for some guidance from a member of the Ultimaker staff with intimate knowledge on the board/interface software, but any input from an Ultimaker Staff member would be a good start. I have been working on my own material station "clone" for my Ultimaker 3, and have decided that the stock NFC reader simply doesn't have enough range/sensitivity for the NTAG216 tags I'm able to get. So, I am trying to replace the Stock NFC board with this; PN532 NFC Evolution V1 . For the purposes of testing, I've been using an Adafruit PN532 Breakout board that I
  8. Looking to print w ABS on my S3. What are the recommendations/experience for compatible support materials? Seems to me, to be limited to BVOH or UM Breakaway. Ether removal process is fine w me, just looking for insights, brands, tips etc. Not interested in using HIPS. I may consider a switch to Tough PLA, but I really like the surface quality properties I get with ABS in my UM 2+
  9. I am looking to print ABS w my S3. I also have a UM 2+ that has a top cover that has been working very well when printing ABS. I would like one for my S3. UM2 + Extended Frame Top Cover I have found only two covers: FBRC8 ULTIMAKER S3 SAFETY ENCLOSURE KIT 3D JAKE Cover + Door incl. HEPA Filter for the Ultimaker 3 Experiences, suggestions, thoughts? Thanks
  10. Goedendag, Mijn Ultimaker 3 liep vast tijdens het printen. De print onderbroken. Filament er uit gehaald en proberen terug te zetten naar fabrieksinstellingen (set up uitgevoerd) Nu gaat alles goed tot de melding komt: remove all materials from the spool holder. waiting .......... Na 6 uur geduldig wachten gaat die niet verder en kan ik er niks meer mee. Er zit dus geen Filament meer achter in en ook geen rest meer bij de printcore. Heeft iemand een idee? Ik had het bedrijf willen bellen waar we die gekocht hadden, maar die zijn helaas begin dit jaar failliet. Hoop dat iemand ee
  11. Moin, Ich drucke derzeit mit einem Ultimaker 3. Folgendes Problem. Als Produktmaterial verwende ich im 1. Extruder ein weißes PLA. Als Stützstruktur verwende ich weißes Breakaway-Filament im zweiten Extruder. Wenn ich das Material im 2. Extruder wechsel kommt nach einer Weile ordnungsgemäß flüssiges Filament aus der Düse. Während des Drucks jedoch nicht mehr. Reinigung mit Reinigungsfilament habe ich auch schon durch... Liebe Grüße.
  12. Hallo, Mein UM3 gibt kaum Material aus, der Drucker sagt es gibt einen Fehler beim Leveln (beim Druck), if ich einen Leveltest mache ist funktioniert das Leveling. Beim Druck aber nicht. Der Drucker hat 2x Solex-Kerne. Ich hab schon versucht den Extruder neu einzustellen, alles gereinigt. Aber nichts funktioniert.
  13. Copied from someone else - I didn't write 99% of what is below but I think it's very useful - especially if you are messing with json files on your UM3 and it stops booting. you'll find a recovery image here: recovery.img. You can install this update by putting this image in a micro sd card - but don't just copy the file there you have to do a special process to make it a bootable sd card. here is a nice guide on putting a disk image on a sd card: https://www.hifiberry.com/build/documentation/create-sd-card-from-img-file/ If you are working with MacOS, you can better use ApplePie baker:
  14. Na een jaar, door omstandigheden, stil gestaan te hebben afgelopen weekend de UM3 weer aangezet. De UM3 gaf aan dat er een firmware update beschikbaar was, zoals vaker in het verleden, en ik heb deze toen laten instaleren. Nadat ik de PC had aangezet zag ik dat er ook een update was voor Cura, deze ook gelijk uitgevoerd. Sindsdien 5 mislukte prints. Nadat ik de printopdracht gegeven heb start de printer met de auto leveling en begint met printen. Na een minuut of 6 - 8 start de printer zichzelf opnieuw op en geeft de melding dat de print mislukt is. Ik heb verschillende printfile
  15. Hello fellow printers, Over the last 3 weeks I've been struggling trying to get the "perfect" first layer on my Ultimaker 3. The bed is absolutely level, but it's warped. The outer sides are bending downwards slightly.I've fixed that with some tape on the ends of the heated build plate, and stick the glassplate on top. Whatever I try, levelling on the go with all kinds of spiral and 20x20 calibration squares. They all come out pretty succesfully, until I start printing a bigger surface. I keep getting the same results with or without the buil
  16. I have a theory that thinner layers and thinner extrusion leads to more warping. The basic thought I have in my head is that if you're printing thin layers, near or below the nozzle width, then you're smearing and stretching the filament, leading to higher stress and potential warping. It's easy enough to find a print that's prone to warping, print with different settings and then eyeball the result. But I'm wondering if anyone has taken a truly scientific approach with this and has good numbers? Maybe even measured stress with some fancy hardware? What do you think?
  17. I recently purchased an Ultimaker S3 and so far have been blown away with the quality of the prints. Thus far I have only used the provided glass heating bed for all my prints and as a result my bottom layer is always very shiny and smooth. I am now trying to get a more matte and textured look on my first layer. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or 3rd party heat beds that I can use to get this effect. I was told that by putting some blue painters tape on the heat bed I could possibly get this to work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  18. Bonjour, j'ai un problème depuis quelque temps, ça arrive en général au bout de 2h ~ 2h30 d'impression, il n'y a plus de PLA qui sort et lorsque je décharge le fil il est aplati là ou ce trouve le moteur. J'ai essayé pas mal de solution qui était proposé sur d'autres forum d'Ultimaker ( diminuer la pression, changer la vitesse d'impression et température des printcores) mais le problème est toujours la Voici un cas typique du résultat que j’obtiens
  19. Hello, after not using my UM3 for over a year, had some peronal matters, I started this weekend again. After switching on the UM3 I got the message there was a Firmware update ready. No problems installing the new firmware on my UM3. After starting up Cura I also got the message there was a new version of Curo, so I update Cura aswell. Loading the two parts I wanted to print in Cura, sliced and send them over the the UM3 unit. All went well and the UM3 started heating up and autolevel. Then after a minute of 6-8 the UM3 LED light was flickering and the unit restarted and boot
  20. Guten Tag, ich habe derzeit ein Problem mit dem PLA von Basf. Mitten im Druck verstopft immer der Printcore und der Druck misslingt. Dieses Problem passiert mir nur mit dem Material von Basf, wenn ich mit Material von Ultimaker oder Extrudr drucke funktioniert alles einwandfrei. Ich habe es auch schon mit einem neuen Printcore oder mit einem anderen Drucker probiert. Ich habe auch schon eine weitere Rolle in einer anderen Farbe bestellt und getestet, ich bekam die gleichen Ergebnisse. Normalerweise sollte dieses Material doch sehr gut sein, oder? Temperaturen habe
  21. [18:33, 6.6.2021] Lukas: Hallo, Seit heute möchte mein S3 nichtmehr leveln. Sobald ich den Druck starte heizt er und levelt. Anschließend kommt eine Meldung, bitte Printcore (reinigen etc) und Heizplatte überprüfen. Habe jetzt alles versucht. Anderen Printcore, manuell gelevelt, gereinigt etc. Jemand ne Idee?
  22. Bonjour, Ca faisait un petit bout de temps que je n'étais pas venu sur ce forum!! Donc, salut à toutes et à tous!! Mon problème est que j'ai mis un PrintCore Solex avec une buse de .8 mais il est reconnu comme AA 0.4 et je n'ai pas l'option pour changer la taille de la buse dans Cura... Si je dis à Cura que c'est un AA 0.8, lors de l'envoi à l'imprimante il me demande de changer... Une solution? merci. Marc
  23. I have uploaded Cura 4.9.1 on my Mac but I can still cannot find the PETG profile nor is it available on my 3 Extended printer.
  24. Hello, At the Transformation Summit there was a plugin for Cura mentioned, that guides through the creation of a material profile called "Profile Assistant". Can I get that somewhere? I got a material but it really doesn't print well on my UMs with the default profile in Cura and I'm a little lost where to start. I looked basically everywhere and wasn't able to find it. When googling it, there seemed to be a support article but it says I'm not allowed to view it 🤔. When I get it to working fine, can I contribute the profile somehow into Cura or are only manufacturers al
  25. Hallo Leute! Schön langsam bin ich am verzweifeln.... Ich drucke etwas - alles super, läuft gut und passt. Gleich im Anschluss drucke ich dann noch etwas - und da passt nichts mehr... der Druck wird unsauber, das Filament kommt ins Stocken und dann frisst sich der Materialförderer ins Filament und somit geht nichts mehr.... Das Filament ist nicht nagelneu - aber trocken in einer verschlossenen Box gelagert (mit Silicia-Pakete gelagert). Ich weiß echt nicht mehr, woran das liegen kann 😪 - hat von euch vielleicht jemand eine Idee? Danke - LG Helmut
