Hay Im bobby6k34( or just bobby)

just thought i would pop in and say hi, I've been lurking the forums here for about six months and finally pulled the trigger a week or two ago and brought me my first ultimaker( and first 3d printer). I thought seaming i’m probably going to be posting and replying now i would say hi.

It arrived on friday and I spent the weekend assembling it and tuning it and it hasn't been given a rest since. I first tried seeing how fast i can get it upto while printing and i managed to reach 200mm/s then i tried layer height and got that down to 0.02mm So I’m happy with it so far.

the current object its printing is a http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:68070, at 0.04mm layer hight, 75mm/s print speed, 150mm infill and 250mm/s travel speed. it should be finished in about 3-4 more hours(about 18 hours print time).

    Hi bobby, Welcome.

    Since you are from NZ, you have to visit Media Design School.. They also own two Ultimakers.

    I was there Last year giving the first 3D Printer and printing workshops.

    have fun!
