Ulti-Evening February 22nd

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Its almost time for another edition of the Ulti-Evenings.

We have a very interesting guest this time, a true innovator named Aad van der Geest.

Aad van der Geest has already made a couple of trips to the Ulti-Evenings where he brought this special project.

During this edition Aad will showcase his modified Ultimaker 2. It is converted into a full color SLS machine, except without the L(aser). It is like a 3D inktjet printer. Did this get you as curious as it got me? Come by and check it out!

Aad is going to do a presentation in which he will address the following:

-> operating principle powder-printer

-> past developments

-> powder-print module for Ultimaker

-> Inkjet detailed operation

-> powder compounds

-> future developments

-> demoing the machine and software

I would not want to miss this!

Date: 22 - 02 - 2016

Location: 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 powder time!

For everyone who attended this Ulti-evening, or is interested to know more.. Fablab Protospace is offering a workshop where in 3 evenings you will learn how to transform your Ultimaker 2 in a 3D Inktjet printer. You'll be equipped with a powder dispenser and two inktjet printheads. WOW!

This workshop starts at April 19th in Protospace and it costs €750

If you are interested, get in touch with Protospace by calling 030-223 08 75

Would love to. Unfortunately it's probably going to be during or just after the working day, like the Ulti-Evenings... Making it impossible for me to get there in a timely fashion (2 hour drive since I moved and I get home by 6pm)... Also 3 days... That's 1000km of driving :) Shame.

The workshop is on a Tuesday. It starts at april 19th and will be continued on April 26th and May 3rd. It starts at 18.30-21.30.

Indeed it is a stretch, but it would be quite the upgrade to your Ultimaker.

That is a sure thing... If they were to do like a video and just supply a box with the parts, I would be willing to consider it, but as I said, 18.30 is not doable for me, would have to take the days of and not being able to invoice 3 days, plus the cost of the workshop? It would become a VERY expensive upgrade... In the order of "buy a new ultimaker" even.

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
