So this morning I watched the Ultimaker time-lapse of the Giant Ultibot using the 0.8mm nozzle on the Olsson block.

At the end it showed a bunch of settings so I though I would give it a try.

But if I keep the stated 150 micron layer height, 8% infill and 50mm/s print speed then it comes to 26 hours. I cant minimize the wall thickness as its set to 0.8mm and top/bottom thickness is 0.6mm Both i believe is to small but any bigger and the time just keeps getting longer. The settings posted should really include wall thickness and top/bottom thickness as well as these can be key to replicating a print like this.

If this is just incorrectly calculated time by cura then its quite misleading and makes you think you have the wrong settings. Maybe I'm just missing something.

    Just got an email back from our creative team and turns out there is a typo in the graphic. The robot was sliced not at 150micron but at 250micron. Quite a stupid mistake.

    If you change that it ends up at 18h12m.

    We're gonna fix the graphic in the timelapse, so it won't cause any more confusion.

    Thanks @Labern!

    Sweet Thanks

    I'm not used to printing big stuff :) and didn't want to waist heaps of filament trying this out. the overhangs start quite high so it would take ages to find out And if your team have got good settings, why not use them :)

    Thanks

      • 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 5.3.0-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.
