Hardened core for U3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Hardened core for U3

You can use the CC core also on the UM3, you will just get a warning in Cura because the feeder gears are not hardened. So beware of that, that when you print with abrasive materials that you will damage and wear out our feeder.


Another option is to use the 3DSolex Core, there you are able to change the nozzle to whatever you want.

    The 3dsolex core with the "everlast" nozzles is great but again you want to harden the feeder.  The best and cheapest option is to get the bondtech DDG feeders for the UM3.  Unfortunately you kind of have to update both feeders because the UM3 firmware doesn't allow a different steps/mm value for the 2 extruders.  Although you could do a hack where you adjust the flow on just the left feeder.

      • 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
