I don't like the idea of information on one topic being fragmented over lots of sites: that makes it a pain to find anything back later on. So, info on Ultimaker stuff would best sit on the Ultimaker site, especially since they are very open to all sorts of discussions. (It would be different if discussing problems and solutions was not allowed, but this is not the case.)

Further, I don't like "Faecesbook". First of all, you can not access the info without logging-in. And if you log in, you make yourself vulnerable to all sorts of data- and identity theft (since that is Faecesbook's business model).

So, I will not join. This is my viewpoint, but of course, you are free to see things differently.

I am going to echo the point of view on a couple of things.

I do not do social media because YOU are the product. And as stated that opens you up to a lot of crap. And the way these companies are starting to hide things every time they update things, it is tough to keep security on your system because you have to reset everything or worse, hunt and delve at all times.

Second thing is that I agree that having Ultimaker/Cura stuff in one location makes it much easier to find things, and easier for the team to be responsive. And, they are very responsive.

Thank you for stating those things. It gets tiring being compared to a Luddite because you do not do what is 'expected', all the while, staying on the true cutting edge of tech in many ways. A common place, that is designed, by fault to be THE repository should be the place to go.

It also frustrates me when job seeking, you are viewed as somewhat of a problem when you really have no social media presence. It is getting that antagonistic. And that I rebel against by nature.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
