calibrating with pc, tweaking only in software settings?

Recommended Posts

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 ;) !

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
