Cleaning printing rubbish out the case

There isnt really a proper section for this one, but the intended benefit is

"cleaning" the machine...so.

This is a request to UMaker for a small change to their laser cutting program.

Rubbish Slot

Can you please add a slot (as shown) so that we can just sweep out the

accumulated bits of rubbish straight out into a dustpan. The slot needs to be

obviously on the same Z height as the top face of the lower panel inside.

 

Its currently really annoying to clean out the lower cavity of the case.

    Well yes I could use a vacuum cleaner, or I could use a stick with a brush on the end.

    One of them is free, takes 2 seconds to use, is small, uses no power, makes no noise and never clogs

    and the other......

    i usually sweep those tiny pieces out into the hole where the bottom panel meets the front panel. I also have a piece of paper kept on the bottom panel for all those bigger pieces (eg skirts, nozzle drools)

    I'm pretty sure Martijn (original designer and current maintainer of the design) wouldn't like a big ugly hole in the side like that.

    Vacuuming or turning your machine upside down does a pretty good job of cleaning it.

    Tape, use tape wrapped around your hand and presto, clean case.

      • 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
