Posted · Ultimaker 3, New core for 1.75mm filament

Hello,

 

I know that story about size filament is old and many topics about it. But i still can not understand why can not be made new core just for 1.75mm filament. after new core i believe its just software setting need to made. why not to give a option for people who is interested in it. I am ready to pay few hundreds just to have option to print 1.75mm size filament.

    Because it is not just the print core, you have also to modify the feeder (wheels, tension) and the change the Bowden tube, to a tube with a smaller inner diameter.

    For an official kit, it makes no sense and would make too much trouble. Each profile has to be created and tested against the 1.75 setups. Ultimaker machines are built for industries and professional and the goal is to work out of the box, without too much tinkering. All UM materials are 2.85, so there is not really a reason to bring such a kit on the market.

     

    It is only for interest for people which have some old 1.75 filaments at home or for people which have several printers and the others operate with 1.75mm and don't want to buy 2 kinds of materials. 

     

    What is your intention for a 1.75 setup?

    Talk to GR5 he can help with the 1.75 and U3. 

    Bondtec can make special feeders for 1.75

    You are right, you need a nozzle for 1.75. Otherwise the filament would be pressed upwards again and build out a big blob between bowden tube and nozzle, which you can't remove anymore as the blob is thicker than the bowden (given that's changed to 1.75).

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
