Towards the end of June, parents had an opportunity to meet the new principal of St. Joseph High School in Brooklyn, NY. Due to a family emergency, me and my wife did not plan to attend. The night before the meeting a reminder e-mail was sent out to parents. After a discussion with my wife, we decided we were able to attend the meeting.

At the parent meeting, the new principal introduced herself. She also outlined some plans for the future of St. Joseph High School. One item she highlighted was her background with 3D printing and how she was in contact with a company to bring 3D printing to the high school. Personally, this interested me.

That night I went home and e-mailed the principal and made an inquiry as to the company which was gifting the school and how would I go about doing something similar for the school which I already had an electronics after-school program established.

Not only did I receive a response from the new principal that same night, I received two of them. The first e-mail response included the company’s name, which you have probably already guessed is Ultimaker, and the second e-mail response included a link to the application for the Ultimaker Pioneer Program, along with the information that the application deadline was the very next day.

It was approximately two weeks after the application submission that I heard from Liz and Laura about my acceptance into the Ultimaker Pioneer Program. After consulting with St. Mary Gate of Heaven Catholic Academy’s principal, I went ahead and accepted to participate in the program.

The new principal of St. Joseph High School is Caroline Latham, a fellow Pioneer. I want to take this opportunity to thank Caroline Latham for taking the time to communicate with a parent and for offering her assistance as I embark on the 3D printing journey.

I want to thank Ultimaker for giving me, and the students of St. Mary Gate of Heaven Catholic Academy, this wonderful opportunity to participate in the Ultimaker Pioneer Program.

      • 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
