Hello world


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

this is my first post and now I would like to introduce myself :)

My name is Joerg, 45 years old, professions: Mechanic and Media Designer + interested in any new technology. I am located in Germany.

My Ultimaker Original DIY is running for a couple of days now and I'm pretty convinced about this product. The first print after assembling the printer came out pretty good and after optimizing some settings in Cura prints came out almost perfect.

My first printing projects were some add ups to my printer and some spare parts. Right now I am looking forward to do some experimental stuff like multi colour prints and stuff like that.

Hopefully we will having a good time here and pushing ourselves to new limits in 3D printing. Let's have fun :)

    This is a small collection of the prints from the first 10 days. There are some more printer parts (large filament spool, LED attachments, etc.) which are attached to the printer and therefore not shown in the image. I also print always an Ultimaker robot for testing after filament change, so there are lots of robots too ;)

    Currently I'm printing the small tree house from thingiverse for my daughter :cool:

    A square shaped box 189x140x50mm. Unfortunately I had a warping problem and th corners came up a bit, but the print was finished. There was also a bit of underextrusion at ~z=40mmm, so that this was my first failed print :mrgreen:

    Anyway, my wife is using it for her knitting needles :p

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
