Hello!

I'm confused. I used these semi-translucent couplers from 3dsolex (TFT or TFM? I don't know...). Liked them a lot. Now they have new ones, called TFN. Not translucent anymore. Are they better?

    For the shake of knowledge...

    TFM is the technical name of the plastic Polytetrafluoroethylene

    TFN is a made up name that doesn’t mean a thing.

    So...

    Thanks guys for your answers. I just installed this new TFN in my machine. First print went great. @Dim3nsioneer you say that TFN and TFT from 3dsolex have the same specs. They do feel very different in hand. TFT ones felt very slippery and were semi-translucent. This new TFN is whiter, opaque and feels very similar to old Ultimaker PTFE which shipped when Ultimaker 2 came out... Well, as long as they work fine, I'm good.

      • 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
