some pics of our latest UM build. (w.i.p.)

* Custom frame

* incorporated skyline Tilburg (NL)

* 11 led progress indicator


to do :

* moodlighting for cavity connected to progress indicator bars

* heatbed

* E3D hotend

* print ALL <?> printerparts in PLA/ABS instead of lasercut wood (except for frame obviously)


this ultimaker will eventually replace our store-window UM which promotes 3D printing & UM's to the general audience (also viewable through our 24/7 ulticam)

    Very stylish and "Meet My Maker" is a clever addition! However, the frills in the wooden frame windows would only get in the way of some of my heated bed add-ons. I could work around them but, personally, I'd prefer to have the largest, cleanest windows possible for both my heated bed add-ons (wires, glass plate retention clips, etc.) and hand access to the space of the build volume while still maintaining the structural integrity of the frame (box).

    totally agree on wanting to have the windows as large as can be, but we have enough square windowed UM's sitting around for regular print-jobs.

    This printer is primarily made to attract the attention of pedestrians passing by our shopwindow. It's goal is to show people that technology (and 3D printing) is not scary and can look a bit fun too (we're a fablab that aims to lower the technological threshold for people from all walks of life).

    Hence the disney-ish frills ... for the serious, no-frills characters we have the plain-jane printers inside.

    having said that, the side-by-side pic shows it sitting next to a heatbed-UM ... plenty of room to spare ....

      • 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
