Hello community,


After the success of last year, also in part to your support (👇👇👇here is the post from last year👇👇👇) we gave the start to the HALO Pavilion and have it ready for assembly on the following date:

March 14-15, 2020 // Helsingborg, Sweden

The greatest 3D-printing event in the Nordics


The Halo Pavilion 



The goal is to build a fully modular structure produced entirely on modern desktop 3D-printers. With the help from the 3D community in Sweden and around the world we aim to complete this project and assemble it throughout the first day of the event. The structure, composed of 400 pieces has a size of approximately 3 meters by 5,3 meters and the height comes in at between 2,7 and 4 meters. This thing is huge! The assembly is done through the use of zipties. See more images below.

Also, please make sure to share this page with your friends. We would also love it if you could upload photos of your printing progress to social medias. Please use the hashtags #3DMSPP and #3DMS2020 when posting. We will do our best to retweet and share your images when we see them. Happy printing!







We learned from last year that a glue gun is not the solution but instead zip ties as a connection method. In addition to last year, this year we are going to introduce wooden bars as additional structure element connected in turn also by 3D printed elements - as in the video above. 


Hope to see some of you there this year, and I do hope you join this community print again. 


Thank you.

    • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
      In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

    • 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 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.
