ended Community Contest, part 5 | The tribute

Recommended Posts

Five weeks ago we started adding a free Olsson Block set with every sold Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2 Extended. We'll continue doing this for a few weeks more (all the way till Christmas!!) because we believe it is a great example of what the community contributes to Ultimaker. And the Olsson Block can definitely be a valuable addition to your Ultimaker.

You guys carry a lot of knowledge, helped countless of users and continue to contribute to the Ultimaker ‘Universe’. Obviously, you deserve something for this too!

So for the next few weeks we will continue to host a 3D printing contest.

Every week we’ll have a new winner who wins a special edition Olsson Block set.

It contains the same set of nozzles we share with our new users, but especially for you we have added the 1.0mm nozzle too, for the super fast prints!

To draw you the full picture, it contains the:

 

  • Olsson Block itself
  • 0.25mm nozzle
  • 0.4mm nozzle
  • 0.6mm nozzle
  • 0.8mm nozzle
  • 1.0mm nozzle
  • a screwdriver and socket to swap nozzles.

 

 

CHALLENGE

This week we want to pay a tribute to where it all started; the Ultimaker Original.

On YouMagine we found a model by Mitra, now we can all own a little Ultimaker Original!

Photograph the mini Ultimaker Original in your own 3D print corner and upload it in the Print section. We'll choose a winner based on print quality* and originality. (Tip: Printed in woodfill and extra miniature reels of filament is extra points, :)

*Print quality: no stringing, snaps together, a miniature print on the bed, filament going to the head.  

The other rules of the contest are pretty simple. Please read them carefully.

 

RULES

- We know how you all love hacking and modifying, so we have only one guideline: it must be printed on an Ultimaker. Besides that.. everything goes!

- Entries must be uploaded in the Print section. (Fill out your settings if you want. The winner agrees to share his settings at the end of the week).

- Share the link and a picture of your upload in this thread.

- Everyone can participate in every contest, but you can only win once.

- There will be 2 prizes.

- Photoshop is not allowed.

- You can participate until Sunday midnight CEST.

 

EXTRA INFORMATION

- We'll choose a winner based on print quality and originality. Print quality: no stringing, snaps together, a miniature print on the bed, filament going to the head.  

(Tip: Printed in woodfill and extra miniature reels of filament is extra points, :)

- We will announce each weeks winner on Monday in the corresponding thread on our forum, on our Twitter feed and Instagram!

okay, I posted my print in my cozy 3D Print Corner. see if you can spot it at 1st glance. AND like any good UM it's already hacking it's self since the print job it just finished is the Sound Dampening Spring, an add on I think every UMO needs.

The son prints the small father with woodfill :)

Here is my small UMO for the Community Contest. This print is the first one for me with Woodfill.

Now I see I am a little bit too late with the blue tape idea. Additionally I added the realistic looking filament output at the beginning of every print :-)

Now some pictures:

IMG_4458.thumb.JPG.24407a52580499ef58192e1a20e69d08.JPG

The details with the .8 nozzle are not very impressive, but constant. For the feeder I testet the .4 nozzle, the result is quite ok. If I had known this earlier I had printed the whole mini UMO with the .4 nozzle. Now I can't print another small UMO because I´m out of woodfill :-(

Here is the Link to the 3D Print section.

@Labern don't worry... I just had no time left to do it when I uploaded the images...

So here we go:

UMContestPart5_4.thumb.jpg.d94f23514a5dac44389ccd2bdaec874a.jpg

UMContestPart5_1.thumb.jpg.296ff637e3c95a667ca21a583233c3c3.jpg

Material:

Base, Top, Feeder: Diamond Age PLA Ivory

Platform: Diamond Age PLA Chocolate

Filament Spool: Diamond Age PLA Black

Miniature Print: Diamond Age PLA Cherry Red

Filament/Bowden: Diamond Age PLA Tactical Matt Black

All parts were printed on my UM2 with Olsson Block / Robert's feeder through a 0.25mm nozzle around 190-195°C at 0.06mm layer height.

The Bowden tube and the filament between spool and feeder was produced by extruding the TMB PLA through a 1mm nozzle. The TMB has the effect of enormous expansion when coming out of the nozzle; it doubles the diameter! This makes it tricky to print normally but was exactly what was needed here.

Finally, I put the Mini-UMO on my UMO which you can see a picture of hanging on the wall behind it showing its original state on Day 1 of my 3D printing life. So it's really also a personal tribute to my UMO... ;)

"The introduction of the first 3D printer into the Integrated Product Design studio made a tremendous difference to our program. It used to take students days or even weeks to complete a single prototype. With access to a 3D printer, students were able to create a design and hold it in their hands the next day. The original Ultimaker was working non-stop with students literally camping out in the studio to start a new print as soon as the last one was done. Students were able to rapidly iterate on their design ideas and the final projects were noticeable more polished than any of the previous cohorts. Now of course, we have an entire wall of Ultimaker printers including the new Ultimaker 2 Extended but the original Ultimaker is still there printing away."

-Professor Ultibot, Integrated Product Design Chair, Ultimaker University

Ok, here is my story of today:

I decided to make the frame from gold and bronze.

The intention was an extra motivation for the fire breathing successor.

As an extra tribute i printed on a cold buildplate covered with bluetape.

During the print, some cute prying Ultimaker robots came by.

I really don't know where they came from, but they are very interested.

I guess they like the sound and the vibrations...

I think the UMO deserved itself a bit more color - it ended up in a lot of material changes.

The heated bed kit arrived just in time, i apologize for the stuff that is strewn all over the floor... i was in a hurry...

Some more pictures in the print section.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
