Is there such a thing as to many donuts?

Well, at least you didn't loose your artistic touch and sense of humor ;)

    Wow, very good! This should be mandatory viewing for everyone at Ultimaker, especially minutes 8:30 to 11:00. You hit the nail on the head over and over again. Thanks.

    I feel like with the new CURA we are seeing the same mistakes you highlighted about how poorly the new forum was handled. I'm very worried for my beloved UM company repeating the same mistakes so close together in time.

    Great talk! I can see the Ian passion is no less to last time we saw each other! Good thing you embedded this here, so many more people could now watch this than were in the room.

    I think you make a lot of good points about the importance of a community to a company. Thanks for sharing your experiences from Pixpast and Ultimaker. Only thing that you didn't mention is that it's really motivating for the people in your company that the people in the community aren't just order ID's but actual people you can interact with. It's not just the other way around.

    I also appreciate how you remind us to not repeat our mistakes. We certainly need to. But don't think we aren't learning. Anyone has to be able to make mistakes to learn, otherwise you stand still. And standing still means becoming irrelevant. Learning from other people's mistakes is the only thing that works even better.

    Also, I really like how you made the drawings. I started appreciating good drawing skills now that my little daughter is born, but I still have to do it more to become better at it. In that sense it's not different than 3D "drawing". Practice makes perfect!

    Take care!

    I can imagine the forum looks quite different than what you are used to.

    If you want a helping hand to get around here you can find some information about what is what.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
