Wiki down?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Wiki down?

I saw on the internet a link to an ultimaker wiki page (wiki.ultimaker.com), but it said the link will not contain some infos from 2020. To me it seems the link is down fully.


Since I am new to UM3, I have a bunch of issues, that I guess every newbie has. Searching the forums is not that efficient, I had hoped there would be some often used things that are beyond the FAQ in the wiki.

I need e.g,

 - how to set a static IP (solved now)

 - how to get a simple stop-on-filmament-empty function

 - plans to make a nice front door

 - plans to make a nice top cover

 - library of material setting per brand

 - newbies tips and tricks about stuff that is important but is not obvious. For example such as the importance to dry filmaments before use or getting bad prints.

And for my furhter steps of course: troubleshooting guides per model


Is there any other place with this kind of collected knowledge for the UM3 anywhere? I'd hate to flood the forum with the 101st question about some stuff, because I was just too stupid to find the right posts in the forum search 🙂.

    Hello @Tigerbeard, welcome to the community! 

    The wiki was discontinued a long time ago. Surprised you still ran into it. The forum is a great place for questions of that nature. Have you already looked at the Ultimaker Marketplace?


    You can find a couple different designs here for doors and top covers. There are also several for sale. Feel free to ask for experiences / recommendation. 


    As for tips to improve your 3D print quality; here is a great thread. If you have additional questions, feel free to ask. We have a lot of product knowledge here and it is nice to help others 🙂

      • 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.
