Ultimaker Meet-Up in Lucerne, Switzerland


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker Meet-Up in Lucerne, Switzerland


On January 25th 2017 there will be an Ultimaker Meet-Up at FabLab in Lucerne (in the heart of Switzerland) for Swiss Ultimaker users. It will be hosted by the FabLab itself in cooperation with me and @iGo3D Switzerland.

We are preparing an attractive program which you can find here. On the same page you can find a registration for the event (as the number of participants has to be limited due to the available space).

What makes the program attractive? There will be printers from all three Ultimaker printer families there. There will be small workshops about Cura 2.3 (maybe 2.4 until then?), community mods etc. And last but not least, we will have a live feed to @SandervG ... :) (well, if that alone is not THE reason to join that meet-up...)

We would like to have not only people already here on the forum at this event but also those who are not yet connected to other users here. So if you have a friend with an Ultimaker who you try to convince to join this forum: this is your chance; tell him/her about that meet-up.

If you have a very cool modded Ultimaker yourself and would like to present it to other makers: it's now or never...! You're highly welcome to bring your own printer with you; just let us know in the registration.

Of course it is also a great opportunity for people who finally want to checkout Ultimaker printers...

Last call: If anyone still wants to register for the Meet-Up at FabLab Lucerne on Wednesday next week, please do it now. We will close the registration soon as we are close to the maximum number of people the location can host.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
