Confessions of a clumsy noob

Recommended Posts

Hey there. Got my Ultimaker 3 extended about 2.5 weeks ago. Didn't touch it as I was busy and distracted until last Saturday. Been having a blast. It has been fun. This machine is cool and forgiving. Clumsy..see?

But, I am playing around and just having fun. It's been running for the last week now and any issues have been user error and well...a noob.

But, I am getting prints out and even got NinjaTek Semiflex to print decently. Well, to my inexperience I am happy.

Soooo much fun to learn!!

The Allosaurus model is mine. I have been playing with downloaded files too. The PLA Dino is printed at normal with a length of 6". The SemiFlex was printed in Draft mode. Man that Semiflex is BLACK!!! Hard to photograph. >_<

Been playing with hard lock ball and socket joints, soft lock with the semiflex and just having a ball! Wheeeee!

Been doing that thing where you just keep fiddling with it. Learned a lot of stupid things like keep your hands out of the build area when running...pause instead if you gotta play in the area. Duhhhhh.....

Great Machine :) Gotta build a dry box feeder. Wow the PVA is popping and such. But still only a week in. :) Time is on my side, I hope. ;)

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
