Posted · Help needed! Study related questions to hobby 3d printing enthusiasts

Hello forum,

I am doing a little off the books research for a design study related project and was wondering if anyone here could help me out.

I have read about the technology as a whole and of course focused more on 3d desktop printing units, their capabilities, origin, future and of course the community behind it.

Since the community in the city i live in seems undetectable i felt like this was the best way to get some first hand information.

Specifically I would like to find out

for one what exactly it is that interests you in 3d printing (the final product, the process, the software, the experimenting, community ?)

for the second, whether there is something related to the hobby use of a 3d printer that would be beneficial for the user. for example a soundproof box, a stable table, special racks for parts, or a new application for exchange of knowledge, designs.. this is only to give an example but i hope you will let your creativity splurge.

Thank you very much for any answers in advance, the 3d print novice valentin

    I bought the printer for making working prototypes to speed up the development phase. I also printed an original that was carefully finished by hand and are currently making moulds for epoxi resin/PU.

      • 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
