Hello from the very far south west of England.

I got my ready built Ultimaker a few weeks ago. I just didn't have the time or patience to go for a kit but would have coped if the budget demanded it. I've been printing some great robots! Now I'm starting to get reasonable results with my own stuff. I have had some issues with my models which I make in 3ds Max, I'm generally getting these sorted using Netfabb basic and sometimes using the fix horrible options within Cura.

The one unresolved issue I have is connecting via USB, (64 bit Win 7 :???: ) when the machine arrived it worked, then it became troublesome needing considerable effort to get it recognised, now it won't connect at all. I'm happily printing from the SD card but it would probably be more convenient for calibration and fine tuning to have a direct connection. I'm going to have a go at a dual boot Linux and see if that sorts anything out but I have tried connecting to a laptop with XP without any luck so perhaps there is an issue with my printer.

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
