I have recently decided to purchase Ultimaker 3 becasue of all positive reviews and the features it has.

 

Ultimaker 3 is perfect with printing PLA. I am printing extreemly small parts and extreemly large and it goes great.

However , i started printing ABS with the default cura settings , but the ABS is not provided by Ultimaker. (Third party , high end ABS).

My print did not stick well  on glass, with or without glue. I added a PEI layer on the glass . The part still delaminated sometimes and there was a lot of warping !

    To print successfully ABS you need to cover the front of your printer and maybe also the top, to keep the air warm inside during the print. For adhesion, the UM adhesion sheets or Dimafix or 3DLac spray helps a lot.

    So you are telling me a 3600+ $ printer does not come with a door.

     

    I actually met yesterday with sales people from Ultimaker and voiced my feedback on the problem. The company does not sell a kit . I can only buy a third party enclosure or build one.

     

    But I think Ultimaker 3 is the only expensive pritner without a door,very unique feature.

    I'm sure you were informed about the advanced 3D printing kit for the Ultimaker 3? It also includes a front cover.

    Actually no. I was told there is no kit and i should go to third party. That was yesterday in Hannover.

     

    I found it on the website now. https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/49779-installing-the-advanced-3d-printing-kit-for-the-ultimaker-3

     

    The representative mentioned that a door i can buy or build would solve 80% of the problem.
    Third parties produce complete enclosure kits.https://www.matterhackers.com/store/l/ultimaker-3-enclosure-kit/sk/MJPRFC8C

    I really like the product but it surprises me that for it to print the second most used filament like ABS you need to adjust the printer.

     

    And again UM3 is not cheap. I just expect that at that price the door would be default.

    I know there is the core exchange technology and that costs research and i am also paying for the research. I really like the printer reliability and quality, but for the price it should be a solid choice for PLA / ABS / Nylon print without adjustments.

    A front door cover is usually enough and in their advanced printing kit, a front cover is included. 

    If you want to have a "real" door, then you can only check 3rd party solutions or buy the S5, which has the doors included.

    Got the S5 yesterday . It prints great PLA / ABS .

     

    Still getting used to the touch screen. Is there a tune option to adjust nozzle temperature during print ? I could not find that.

    I am not at my printer at the moment, but you should be able to get into the menu with the 3 dots in the upper right corner during a print.

      • 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.
