People buy garbage and expect it to work flawlessly.

Sigh...

I'm guessing the blog post has to be taken with a large spoon of satire? Some people have produced gorgeous designs with 3D printers.

    I think even the most advanced printers, people dont realise there is a certrain skill involved. we are still in the "made out of paper and glue using beavers tails" wright brothers age of filght when it comes to 3D printers, but far to many companies are selling them as auto pilot A380's.

    but yes, definately satire, if not very very true satire.

    As a prior ROBO 3D post-kickstarter owner, I felt the pain and frustration of that article truly, but it fails to mention the joyful side of the hobby / biz of 3D printing. Like a child with a discipline problem, you wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!

    I feel sorry for the guy, his command of the English language seems as poor as his knowledge of 3D printing. Every newbie goes through those initial weeks with failures and frustration, it is the same as PCs back in the eighties and nineties, plug 'n play they are not. But the smart ones think, test, train themselves, join the Ultimaker forum irrespective of printer, and learn and go on to produce marvellous pieces.

    What fascinated me most was realising that the Cube had gone

      • 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
