We should design a better forum banner ?

Posted · We should design a better forum banner ?

If we are going to get this forum really cooking.

We should atleast give it a push in the right direction and this temporary 2 minute photo shop job of a banner just wont do it any more.

So if any of you chaps have 5 or 10 minutes free time and can cook up a really tasty new banenr graphic, that would be a super help.

I will try myself this week.

And if we can put together something really nice by the end of this week.

Then we can sent it off to the ultimaker gods and ask for the update ....

    Doesn't work very well with a smaller monitor, it also looks a bit messy. I think the current one is better then yours...

    The "user forum" text is clearly pasted on later. The JOIN US with the robot is a bit funny, but makes it messy. And the ultimaker itself, it is the "target" of the forum, but I think it looks silly at that scale and location.

    A logo should be good looking, but not crowded, and 'merge' with the rest of the forum style. Example of another forum:


    I would:

    * Put in only 1 robot (I would opt for the black one, at the size you have it)

    * Remove the "fast, highdetail,portable, affordable..." text.

    * Put "User forum" at that place, maybe with the same shadow type as the old text. But NOT red.

    * Remove the JOIN US!

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
