turn ultimaker 2 into a 3D doodler?

Recommended Posts

Just looks like a failed print.

If you do the level bed procedure but make it so the bed has a big gap between it and the nozzle then load in a large print and turn retraction off you will end up with something like that. Maybe you could also increase the flow and have a large layer height to stop it from correcting itself.

Yes you can unclip the x / y axis rods from the black holders that connect the axis rod to the belts, just rotate them till the unclip. Then the whole head comes off. You can slide the rods out and hold the head in your hand.

You can the go in the menu and select move material and rotate the dial to extrude filament.

    • "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.
