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 :)

    voila :)


    IMG 1820Robot test

    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

      • 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.
