Hello from Bavaria, Germany!

Recommended Posts

I'm very new to this community in regards to posting something. However I was already following all the posts during the last 9 weeks when waiting for my UM2.

I esteem the warm and professional atmosphere in this forum!

Last Friday I received my package from Ultimaker :smile:

What to say? Hm? I'm so excited of this product. I already had a lot of fun this weekend with the UM2.

Yesterday evening I tried the jpg-processing functionality of Cura.

So here is the first printed result:

A really perfect print:

20140120 091803

 

20140120 091821

 

However, the truth of this print can only be seen when using light behind the print:

 

20140120 092843

 

Again, I'm really excited what's possible with UM2.

 

A warm "hello" to the whole Ultimaker community and to the Ultimaker-Team from Bavaria!

 

Special thanks to Sander for keeping me updated via PM about the status of the delivery of my UM2!

 

I appreciate being part of this community!

Hi Sigi,

Thank you and welcome to the community!

The print came out really well. I think the idea is that it shows the image through light.

You could perhaps make the layer thinner so less light is needed to emphasize the image inside.

But it already looks really good :)

I am curious to see what else you will be making!

Hi Sigi!!! Welcome to the UM community!

I'm sure you'll have some questions as you go along, but don't hesitate to ask questions, and keep showing what you're printing: the UM2 is a great printer, I'm sure you'll get lots of great results.

 

Hi Illuminarti. I'm sure the questions will come ...

I'm glade to have one day off today to try a lot of things with the UM2.

For sure I will show what I'm able to get out of this machine.

Sigi

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
