Hi! I'm not sure why, but When I click on a topic from the main forum page, I'm getting 404's.

For example, when I click on Coffe Corner, this URL throws a 404: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/general/coffee-corner?topics=1&sort=latest&type=all.'>https://ultimaker.com/en/community/general/coffee-corner?topics=1&sort=latest&type=all.'>https://ultimaker.com/en/community/general/coffee-corner?topics=1&sort=latest&type=all.'>https://ultimaker.com/en/community/general/coffee-corner?topics=1&sort=latest&type=all. I have to manually edit the URL to make it https://ultimaker.com/en/community/general/coffee-corner before it will work. Strange. Is it just me?

I am logging in from Uganda, so who knows! :D

    Thank you so much. I'm glad it's not just me. Usually is.

    Thanks for a GREAT product, and a great forum. I've read a lot, found amazing advice, and haven't posted much because frankly I didn't have the knowledge / confidence in anything related to 3D printing. I'm a long-time hacker (security guy) and now more into making / education / charity.

    I'm thrilled to be here. You'll definitely see me around, and hopefully I can post some answers and solutions eventually. :-)



    Looks like we are back on track.

    Let me know if you notice any more oddities.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum :)Looking forward seeing you again!

    Hi Johnny,

    Welcome again :)

    I would suggest to just participate, be part of the conversation and you'll learn on the way!

    Make sure to share some of the things you are making in our print section and you can even receive feedback on how to potentially improve it.

    With the collection of prints we have there it could also functions as a source of inspiration.

    Enjoy your Ultimaker and the community!

    The more, the merrier


    Read a lot. Ask a lot. Learn a lot.

    I do a lot of education and charity work too. I have a full-size R2-D2, with many 3D printed parts deep inside of it, helping hold those valuable electronics in place. "We", R2 and I, primarily do Pediatric hospital visits but get many requests for appearances elsewhere. My God Son died of brain cancer when he was 5 back in 1994. The outreach so many did for him, to comfort and entertain him, made a big impact on me. When I found a club that built R2-D2s, I knew such a robot would be loved at a hospital.

    So, it has been my geeky way of giving back. Putting a smile on a very sick child's face means the world to me.

    The members here have taught me a lot, from building my kit to fine tuning the machine...and more.

    Hi @LePaul,

    do you also take your R2D2's to MakerFaires?

    I spend some time talking to someone who was in such a group I think last year. But can't remember if it was in Bay Area or NYC.. (I am thinking Bay Area).

    Anyway, great way to give back! I am sure kids love it.

    Does your R2D2 has a lot of printed parts?

    The only one I have been to so far is in Dover, New Hampshire They had a Mini-Maker Faire that was great.

    I am working with a friend of mine who organizes large events, like Comic-Con type things, about putting together a MakerFaire in my area. We have a lot of technology in the region, schools and much more that could really show off advanced manufacturing, robotics and more. The University has an advanced robotics research area, testing robotic ideas for things like surgery and more.

    My first R2 only has internal items made on the Ultimaker. I needed a means to mount the electronics inside R2. I have printed several Arduino UNO holders and other things that keep everything organized..so they do not short circuit!

    The second R2 does have 3D printed parts made. As beautiful as CNC aluminum parts are, they are heavy. I have been working on replacing some of the detail pieces with 3D printed ones, to reduce weight. Once painted, you can't tell the difference Here's the 'coinslot' piece that is on the front of R2 printed with Ultimaker Silver PLA


    I also use the Ultimaker to prototype parts that will be used to test fit inside the droid. If they fit and work out, sometimes I re-print them to a stronger/higher fill density or ship the part to the machine shop to be made in aluminum. The Ultimaker has come in handy for making small pieces, such as washers or spacers for some assemblies. Learning how to draw parts was tough, I found Sketch Up works alright for many quick fixes. And of course, learning how to use Cura and the Ultimaker to get good results just takes time and experience.

    Sorry for the long reply :)

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
