Pfff. I go away for a couple of weeks, and this is what happens.... I was miles in the lead on likes last time I looked. Impertinent Irish ... Mumble mumble mumble... and that GR5 guy??? Why would anyone like anything HE says??? ;-)

Seriously though, I'm amazed at how great this forum has become. I had my doubts when we moved to this new forum system a year ago, and I started being a moderator. I found the old google group to be perfectly good for my needs, and wasn't convinced that a new official forum would be significantly better than the old one, which had become dysfunctional.

But it really has thrived. The community has grown, and in addition to the folks from UM and the moderators, there are a bunch of really passionate, knowledgable users contributing, helping one another and sharing. When I last looked at the stats, I was surprised to see just how much it had grown to dwarf the old google group. Over a thousand posts per week now, and we seem to have a remarkably good natured and welcoming community.

So well done, Ian (Enjoy your short-lived victory :-p ) But, even more so, well done to everyone here. I've heard many people now both online and offline tell me how important our community is, and how much it's helped them, or gave them confidence to buy in to the Ultimaker universe themselves. I think we should all be pretty proud of that!!

Can't really add much to that, very well said. (Now, do I click the like button or not.... :p).

On a personal note I'm also extremely happy that the forum took off. I was fairly vocal about my preference back when the forum was still getting started and there was still "competition" between it and the google groups. It feels like we now have a fairly healthy user base on both platforms so people can pick the one they like.

When i was still in the process of finding the 3d printer to buy this forum and all the very interesting posts and comments was one of the big reasons to make me click on the buy button for the UM2. The community is great, i like how the gurus get involved in the problems posted here. I feel very confortable with my choice because the UM is a great machine and that if it fails for any reason i'll find good and helpfull help here very fast.

Hey guys

Recently I saw some interesting statistics from the Olympic Winter Games in Sotchi. Of course there were the standard statistics (which country has the most gold medals, silver medals, etc.). And then there was a medal efficiency calculation. The number of medals won was divided once by the number of athletes from each country and once by the number of participations at competitions of all the athletes from each contry. And guess which contry was best... the Netherlands, land of Ultimaker... :-P

I just allowed myself to calculate some numbers such as number of likes divided by the number of posts to get a 'like efficiency'. Ian, Robert, I have to say, although you're not on top in these statistics you're at least ex aequo... :wink: So don't worry...

Information and statistics can be used to prove anything !! LOL ;-)

All I know in my simple modest way is...

IM THE BEST

IM THE BEST

IM THE BEST......

I said Im modest ! ;-)

But apart from joking :-)

I have to say the forum is growing amazingly at the moment with bunches of brilliant happy new people all the time.

And I think the whole thing is a lot to do with the boss behind it. Sander.

We as a community couldnt ask for a better man to captain this ship.... Fair. Helpful and Creative.. a winning combination to make a lot of people very happy.

Facebook beware.. The Ultimaker Forum is coming .....

Ian :-)

Now you see what came out of it...

No, seriously.. I love you guys (especially for being simple and modest all the time)! Best forum ever :D

1) IT'S AARON'S FAULT! That damned AaronAlkalai or whatever his name is - he hit the like limit and Robert gave him the ability to do more likes in a single day than the forum initially allowed. :)

2) I am going to hit "like" on all of Ian's post for a week until he is well ahead of everyone else - I get nervous when I stand out.

3) I actually looked at this same screen yesterday and saw that I was getting dangerously close to the most posts. I'm going to have to moderate myself a bit and try not to post 2 posts in a row on the same topic and try to combine it into one post. I don't want people to think that I don't have a life or something! Daid has the most posts - he's the one without a life - I'm just fine! :)

1) It's Aaron who is the most efficient in collecting likes... ;) Nearly one like every three posts...impressive! Imagine what happens if this man finally receives an Ultimaker!

3) Rumour has it that it is actually Daid's cat who is writing all the posts... :lol: So, who is your ghostwriter, gr5?

    • 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.
