calibrating with pc, tweaking only in software settings?

Recommended Posts

Posted · calibrating with pc, tweaking only in software settings?

Hi,

I'm planning to build myself an Ultimaker in October with this workshop, tough I have some questions I'd like to have answered first.

The printer would be connected to an Ulticontroller and print in a seperate room apart from the iMac.

Is it so;

- that the first time you will need to hook it up to a computer for calibrating ?

- after the first calibration, you can transfer/copy the settings to another pc and program there, aswell as making all the tweaks?

Also, how trustworthy is it to let an Ultimaker print overnight, or when not at home ( risk of fire or self-damaging machine) ?

thx ahead ;) !

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
