Posted (edited) · Schooling Blog; 3D printing.

We kicked off the schooling blog a little while back with a topic about maintenance. Looking forward we will cover the entire range of what’s involved with 3D printing, but for now we’ll focus on 3D printing in general.

Everyone who owns a 3D printer agrees there are certain ways of doing things to get the most out of your 3D printer. To help give you the lowdown on these best practices we’ve combined the knowledge of our local Ultimaker experts with our online knowledge base to regularly present a collection of tips. Sharing is caring people! If you follow along with these blogs you’ll become a specialist in no time.

When preparing a print, choosing the right 3D printing profile makes a really big difference. It’s why we put a lot of work into Cura to make it as intuitive as possible, with default profiles and the option to open the hood so you can get more in-depth when you’re ready. To help you get to that point, we’ll be covering subjects like: what guidelines are important to know, what are important settings, what do all those settings in your Tune menu mean, why do we use 2.85mm filament and how do you improve your overhangs?

- Start of a 3D print

- Tune the settings on your Ultimaker

- Adhesion

- Finding the balance

- Overhangs

- 2.85mm filament

- All tied up

All will be revealed – just keep on reading about 3D printing with an Ultimaker.  

Let us know what you think about these Schooling blogs and what you possibly want us to write about next!
