Posted (edited) · Ultimaker Session 29th of May | 3D Printing inhouse with Ultimaker

Every Ultimaker Session we try to invite a guest who can teach us something. The topics may vary, but one thing is for sure, 3D printing is key.  

I don't think 3D printing has been more important and essential than for our next guest; Ultimaker itself!

Besides that we put a lot of research in designing the Ultimaker 3D printer, we also build and use them ourselves. You may have already seen our story how we used the Ultimaker 2+ to prototype parts for the Ultimaker 3. But we also use 3D printing to build other Ultimakers.  

For this Ultimaker Session we have invited some colleagues from our Quality Assurance department who will tell us about a range of tools they use during the assembly of Ultimaker 3D printers. Tools they have designed and 3D printed themselves to be used in production.  

Besides that, we also use these tools to check new parts we receive to verify if they are completely within spec. As you can imagine, these parts need to be pretty accurate. Want to know more? Make sure to stop by ad pay us a visit!

It promises to be another very interesting Ultimaker Session!

We are looking forward seeing you at Protospace.

If you have an interesting project or topic to share during an Ultimaker Session, make sure to let us know!

Sadly I can't make it, but it would make a nice blog post, with links to the printable models they use. I'm quite curious!

      • 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 5.3.0-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.
