I live in the Midlands so if anybody has plans to meet let me know. I will start to keep an eye out for shows/exhibitions etc from now on too. You can teach me how to create masterpieces and i`ll buy the nice cold guiness !

    So where are you in the Midlands ? I am in Lichfield.

    Might be worth us seeing if we can put together a mini meetup, there must be more 3d printers in the area.

    You on 3d hubs? we need more printers

    Dang, I wish I still lived in Nottingham. AFAIK, it's a 4 hour or so drive to the nearest Ultimaker owner from here in downtown Memphis. :-(

    Thirty, that show was pretty cool actually. There was tonnes of printing going on, and the scanners amazed me, such detail these days! There were speakers from GrabCad which was pretty cool, and speakers on the emerging legal companies that are starting to look into the IP regarding printing, its a mine field.

    I`m just searching for another exhibition in the UK, i know there is one coming up soon, will post link when i find it

    Spent the day yesterday at the TCT Show on the 3dhubs stand. Really good show with plenty to see and it was not as biased towards the monster machines as i thought.

    Now the proud owner of an Ultimaker 2, a new E3D hotend for the ultimaker original and a roll of bridge + loads of filament samples from colorfabb ; )

      • 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.
