Whats better than doing something creative ?... Answer.. doing something amazing.... that also helps others.

 

So therefore I would like to invite the whole amazing ultimaker family to participate in

The Gingel Bells

Ultimaker Christmas Competition :-) :-) :-)

 

The whole idea is to use your ultimaker to print or create something really beautiful for the Christmas Season.

Something that radiates happiness and creativity and makes the people that you love around you even happier :-)

 

You can make your own design or just simply take designs off the Internet and make beautiful print.

 

In 3 weeks from now, you can submit here or on the ultimaker forum your designs.

 

The winning design will be chosen on creativity, print quality and ... genius ! ;-)

 

AND NOW FOR THE PRIZE !!!!

 

I really want every one to get involved in this design competition and have fun. so I have thought of a special prize for this competition.

 

The winner gets 2 things ! :-) :-)

 

First is...The winner will nominate a children's charity anywhere in the World and I will donate the last 100 euros on my bank account to that organisation. I know its not much but its everything I have :-)

Secondly, the winner will receive a home made German Christmas cake baked fresh by me and my girlfriend.

 

 

As the old saying goes... Its better to give than take,,, and that's why I'm donating the last pennies, pounds and euros on my bank account to this competition :-)

 

God Bless you all and HAVE BUCKETS OF FUN in the next 3 weeks.

 

Ian :-)

    To be honest.. its Christmas time... :-) :-) :-)

    So If you can put together a very cool design on paper or even better in 3d... then we can print it for you !! :-)

    So the game is still open for you ! :-)

    I have something coming, albeit a bit boring. There's just one problem, my printer is racist... It seems to hate black PLA for some reason :lol:

    I still did not return to see if what I modeled worked!

     

    Let me know the procedure to participate based on result of my modeling.

    hi Ian

    i really like the idea behind this post and what you are doing for the forum in general :)

    I didnt make a completely new design for Christmas but was asked to print a model i did a few months ago for a few friends of mine to give their little nephews (one in Munich, the other oen in St. Pölten)

    so here i present to you the "Glow in the Dark T Rex Finger Puppet"

    TREX2

    tRex

    TREX3

    the mouth, head and legs are moveable and it stands ca. 7 cm tall.

     

    merry christmas

    thanks guys for your kind words ! :-)

    I think i miscalulated the interest in such a competition just before christmas. Of course now it makes more sense... the whole world is running around panicking to order the food... find the perfect presents and a chance to sit down and design something cool is really not an option for most.

    So if its ok with everyone here... I am going to rap up the 2 presents I have promised for this competition and combine those with something extra ontop for the next competition... this time a bit better thought out like the summer tshirt competition... that was really amazing....

    By the way... if anyone of you clever gentlemen have a good idea for a creative competition... shoot me a PM when you want !!

    Good night guys.

    Ian :-)

    I was worrying about this competition for some time now, but just like you wrote - I wanted to participate but did not even get around to putting my printer back together until now.

    So now I've still got my printer next to me with the work-in-progress HBP staring at me reproachfully...

    I'm sorry I couldn't participate! I guess I'm speaking for lots of people here.

    Looking forward to the next competition, though. But please give us a bit more time, like 5-6 weeks ;)

      • 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.
