Well, some less spectacular examples here. With some patience many things go, if they don't rely too much on retractions.

Very curious to see what you will be making!

I would consider printing flexible materials for the experienced user, and would certainly not start with it. Even though you are familiar with a Zortrax (how was that working out for you?) an Ultimaker is a different machine which behaves differently.

So I would recommend to first get familiar with PLA, see how the machine works and than move to the flexible materials.

Generally speaking flexible materials need to be printed slower than regular filaments.

Hi Sander, thanks for the feedback, and yes i will learn with the PLA and after that i will start with the flexibles..

By the way, some questions, what program you are using? Cura or Simplify?

And anyone have some profiles or tutorials to start on the ultimaker?

The Zortrax is working fine, +60Kg Printed in 1 year and prints with same quality as new.

By the way if you want check it at www.3drcstore.com

Thanks & Best Regards,

Andre.
