It's a tock now and then. As you said my guess it's that my bed is maybe a bit to high.

There are no problems for the rest of the print once it's start going faster.

 

Firstly... congradulations on getting your new shiny ultimaker 2 !! :-)

Please let us know after you redo your bed leveling test.. and the paper sheet test so you have enough space.. if the feeder is still skipping... if so... its not good that a brand new maschine fresh out of the box is doing this...

Ian :-)

    Took me forever to do this. And it is still rougher than I would have liked.   3D concept rendering:   Finished piece:    

    I just finished this. It was a multi-part print for ease of painting. Some of it I am not sure what happened...but hey, it is purty....And, I am unanimous in that ? Test Render Parts

    Bath interferometers.  I have made about 20 of these for people who use them to test their telescope mirrors.  They are amazingly accurate and can do better than a $40,000 Zygo PSI optical tester.  Th

    I've done the leveling again and it's better. I still got a little clicking of the feeder on one piece just once or twice. This only happens on the first layers and after that it's running perfectly.

    I'll do the crazy cylinder test when i stop printing everything i had in mind since i ordered ^^

    I'm really surprised of the awesome quality of the prints

    It's just the Ultimaker Robot but I'm so happy that I finally managed to print the right ear correctly that I'm doing a https://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lk359tXZNP1qh9061o1_100.gif :-)

    I actually wouldn't have printed it if the model hadn't loaded automatically after updating Cura and I needed a test print anyway. As far as I'm concerned Cura 14.03 is magical :-) (And maybe figuring out the right parameters for the bronze PLA helped, too.)

    I didn't change the orientation and my UM1 doesn't have a second fan. I really don't know why it finally worked but it did!

    Printing low and slow probably did it (or maybe the Cura 14.03 upgrade? the room temperature of only 16°C? the fact that it's friday?)...

    Anyway, I used the Ultimaker Bronze PLA filament (so shiny!) and printed at 195°C, 30 mm/s, top/bottom thickness 0.8mm, standard settings otherwise.

    It's the printing slow. It allows each layer to cool more. You will be better off printing at 20C for anything larger than this as 16C will make it more likely for the corners of parts to lift off the bed. "curling".

    Good to know about the room temperature! I was only printing small parts recently but I'll keep this in mind. This thread is really incredibly helpful for newbies :-)

    the elephant is a really cute print :-) :-) I love the design of the trunk ... ! does that allow good movement with the thin inner centre ?

    Thanks lan :)

    It's fun to watch it print it's very usefull to understand what you can achieve with a 3d printer. I love how it's designed.

    The legs of the elephant can move at 90° approximately and the head moves a bit. But i have to try and print this without the fix horrible type A to see if it increases the movement.

    Hello guys, i wanted to share this Print with you. Its not the nicest Print but this time i run through the whole Process. From the idea to building it in cad and of course printing it. Its made out of 4 Parts and got stoppers for the rotations.

    is that a design for a navel cannon or a fixed position artillery piece ?

    I agree it look a bit weird. Its grown out of a Project we got from our university. We should build a navel cannon but with given Parameters. So i just threw some different canon designs together :grin:

    I have started quite a big project.. which started out as a present for a friends birthday. Although, the more I am working on it, the more I WANT to KEEP it haha.

    I started a test print tonight, which I was assuming would turn out pretty badly...because I didnt design it particularly well for 3D printing...and I was going to use the part for testing POST work ( Filling, Priming and Painting etc ..we need a tips section on this ).

    Anyway...the UM2 did its amazing thing and completed this part so well that I could actually use it for the project..although I needed it in silver :)

    This part is 110mm high and 80mm diameter. The thing is hollow...no infill !! Apart from a couple of overhang minor errors on the through holes, I am super happy with this print :) Now to finish the other 100 components....

    Today I wanted to print something harder so i tried this thing: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:53279

    and here is the result at normal size with layer at 0.1, shell 0.4 and speed 50

    It took about 3 hours to complete. The quality isn't really good but I am currently printing a better version scaled up ( 0.06 layer speed 30

    I will post the result when finished :)
