I posted a message yesterday in the ultimaker groups about an upcoming 3d printing event. In order to reach all 3d printing enthusiast I thought it might be smart to post a message at this forum as well.


Hello everyone,

I wanted to share an upcoming 3d printing event, Rapid Pro. It will be held 25th and 26th of January at the NH Conference Centre Koningshof in Veldhoven the Netherlands.



I have been told the guys from Ultimaker will be there with a lot of Ultimakers. I will be there with a green Ultimaker on behalf of Mikrocentrum, the company responsible for organizing RapidPro. It is a

good opportunity to see all sorts of 3d printing techniques, attend lectures on various subjects related to rapid manufacturing and of course to meet up. Should be interesting to see the ‘at home printers’ next to the commercial types.

There is no entry fee, free of charge.

    Is this just a big demo of the various 3D printing techs or could this perhaps be a good chance to nab some cheap PLA/ABS?

    I don't think you can buy PLA or ABS at this event, but perhaps the exhibitors will be able to help to get in contact with some providers. The event is more of a big demo of commercial companies and there printers, but this is the first year that there will be attention for 3d printing at home.

      • 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
