Wednesday 26th | Introductions

Posted · Wednesday 26th | Introductions

I want to welcome all new members who joined our community yesterday. 10 new users found their way to our forums, hopefully, we can help them find what they are looking for. We can all learn something from each other. The moderators and I keep a close eye to all (new) posts so none stay unanswered, and it is also a great way to get to know all (new) members. However, there is so much going on every day, I can imagine you wouldn't know where to start. By introducing yourself here, I figured that would be a good start to let us hear your voice :)

Yesterday was also a good day for another reason, we moved to new servers so the website should be faster. Let me know what you think :)

With that said, welcome to the Ultimaker community! Each of you has access now to the countless of experts here and online resources available. Use it wisely ;)

A great way to get started is to introduce yourself. We would like to hear from you! Please tell us something about yourself, like;

- What 3D printer do you have

- What do you (plan to) use it for

- What would you like to learn, or find here?

Since a better world starts with yourself, I’ll go ahead:

I’m SandervanG, the community manager at Ultimaker. (You can tag by writing '@' and the username) I have an Ultimaker Original+ and an Ultimaker 2+. I use them mostly for printing objects around the house that broke and I’m in the process of converting illustrations I like to make into 3D models.

Finally, what I would like to learn is what you fine folks are up to :)

Without further ado, here are our newest members: @Boen2589, @FoggyBonez, @racingspotter, @billsrf, @Dapunk, @ErrinG, @Slewentogzz, @hook_cap, @mlemusgt, @pittsburghman. The floor is yours :)

I'll also introduce our moderator team (your best friends): IRobertI, DidierKlein, Flowalistik, GR5, Neotko and Nicolinux. Our very own superstars.

And finally, some links which might be useful when you are just getting started:

      • 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
