Hello from Karlsruhe/Germany

Recommended Posts

Hello Ulti-Makers!

After more than one year 'read only' it was time for me to join the UM-Forum.

My name is Fabian and I am a student at the university of Karlsruhe.

Technically i don't have my own printer. The one I use is property of the "Arbeitskreis Kultur & Kommunikation" which is a small Institute on our Campus led by students.

My job is to maintain the printer, give basic workshops for CAD-Designing (openSCAD) and generally make the printer accessible to everyone who is interested in 3D-printing.

I must say that after one and a half year with that machine I have neither ran out of things to print nor to improve on the UM.

I installed something like a "closed build-environment" -which is pretty close to the one on the UM2-, a hotend from E3D, various belt-tensioners, heatbed, new fanducts, fine-tuned stepperdrivers etc. etc.

I really enjoy working on the machine and improving it and this forum helped me with getting new ideas and support on problems.

Thanks to everyone. You guys are special!

    • "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.
