Hi all,

I have a UM2 and after using this forum as a great resource i finally have something to give back.

I used to use 3M bluetape however when i went to restock in my local B&Q there was none there so i tired their own brand, "Diall", blue tape. The stuff works great, 50mmx50m is €9 and the parts adhere great when printing and are very easy to remove, no tape sticks to the bottom when printing PLA. I had a lot of trouble with the 3M being too stuck and the tape tearing upon removal.

Diall Blue Tape

I hope some others may try it out and see what they think. I see the one review on the B&Q site is from someone with a 3D printer so i am not alone.

Happy printing.

    I personally use car body masking tape. Not as much of a "grain" as normal interior decorating stuff, but boy does it stick to my printing bed! Honestly worrying when a masking tape is too sticky. Probably us lot love it, but decorators are getting frustrated

      • 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
