What are you guys making for CHRISTMAS ?? with your ultimaker 3D printers ?

 

Its starting to into Christmas time a little and I wanted to know what you guys are making with your ultimakers ?

As a little fun project, my girlfriend and I used 123d to create 3d models of our heads.. then printed them off with .06mm layer height, then took our printed models.. all 4 and poured liquid silicon around them. let the silicon set and then baked it for a few hours, so the bad little chemicals were burnt off.. then made a wonderful mix of chocolates and created praline shells with the moulds.. After that we are filling them with diferent yummy fillings and sealing the bases off with more chocolate..

Its incredible what an ultimaker can allow you to do at home :-)

 

So what are you guys going to do ?? :-)

Ian :-)

    Provided mine arrives with enough time for me to print, I'm planning on getting a bunch of gold PLA and printing out custom baubles, probably containing the year and a slot for a family photo.

    My nephews only want money so I will print out a little "maze box" for them so they'll have to work a bit to get the cash. Last year I created a derivative of a puzzle box: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:37217 Unfortunately they solved that one in about 2 seconds flat. The new one will be trickier :D Once I have something printed I'll post pics :)

    Aw yes :D One kid finally cracked it after having finished opening all his other gifts. The other kid gave up for the night and it was still closed when I left :p

    Judging by the comments over at Thingiverse (I'm at #4 on the most popular list btw ;) ) it is a very frustrating puzzle :p

      • 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.
