Ulti-Evening 7 September

Recommended Posts

The next Ulti-Evening is coming up, with yet another educational and interactive theme.

This time we can count on @Korneel to give us a piece of his mind, and he will be talking about: Maintenance!

Through his many print-hours he got valuable insights on how to shape your Ultimaker in its best condition and make sure to keep it like that!

And together we want to share that knowledge with you!

Do you want to learn something new, or your Ultimaker is due for some love?

Bring your Ultimaker!

We will be bringing some spare parts which are available for you during the Ulti-Evening to use.

Some of the topics we will be covering:

 

  • How to recognize your PTFE needs to be replaced
  • How to clean your Ultimaker
  • What to look for with original and alternative feeders
  • How to improve your print quality
  • What are standard errors (heated bed error, temp sensor error) and how to prevent these from happening
  • What maintenance is necessary every week

 

Date: 07-09-2015

Time: 17.00 - 22.00

Locatie: Protospace, Utrecht

17.00 - 18.00 Arrival (Bring your Ultimaker!) and order food (10 euro pp)

18.30 - 19.00 Presentation

19.00 - 22.00 Maintenance-time!

Since Korneel is hosting it, it will be focussed on the Ultimaker 2. But I have understood you won't be the only one with an Original, and since Marrit will also be there.. if you have any questions about your Original I am sure we can help you too!

Given recent progress in update UMO with HBK it might be more similar in maintenance :) But even so, I'm genuinely interested in UM2 hot end maintenance.

Other related note: Is there someone who's traveling by car from the region Rotterdam, Den Haag and in between that I might be able to hitch a ride with?

Train usually isn't the problem, but after my accident I'm not sure whether I'm comfortable carrying my printer like I usually do. In a big box.

Some colleagues might go, and some travel by car.

Is it an option if I see if you can be picked up in Utrecht? (it would save you the travel with your Ultimaker). If Utrecht is not an option, I don't think we can pick you up.

A tempting offer. Probably I'll be able to arrive at Utrecht Zuilen by public transport without to many problems. Would that be a possibility?

Or @Blizz, from where are you driving?

From Belgium, obviously :p

To be honest I don't know where the station is so can't tell if I will be close or not, but I can probably come and pick you up if no one else is around. I'm not planning on sticking around very long though, really early day tomorrow so as for a ride back I also might not be the best candidate.

Thanks @Korneel, @Blizz, @ultiarjan, @SandervG I managed to find an IKEA bag and with that it's a lot lighter and mostly easier to carry. I think I can handle the walk from Utrecht Zuilen. Now I just need to secure if against possible rain and my bike in Delft.

Having said that if someone happens to be near Zuilen around half past 5, a ride is always awesome ;)

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
