This is definitely my favorite thread! What a spread of diverse prints that have been posted lately, I guess Ultimaker really has picked up their pace in the shipping department :mrgreen:. The new ideas springing up every day here is very surprising :D.

@Wallan, awesome sculpting! Your piece is turning out well, regardless of the flaws you may perceive.

@Osgar Schölander, your replacement part looks fantastic and very functional.

@cor3ys, yeah I agree with the others, great paint job.

@Didier Klein, interesting idea I could have used that last night! I have a double color print because I didn't check my spool before printing; it looks pretty cool nonetheless.

@Calimero, wow, that's a really good application of support structure. I would not have guessed it to turn out so well.

@Oswaldo Salzano, did you print that all out with the UM2? That's amazing, really nice attention to detail!

@Andwew, at first glance I thought your picture was a CG image, very professional looking.

@foehnsturm, nice demo of the nozzle sizes; I want to try and print a mini robot with the UM2 0.4 mm nozzle.

@Martin Bienz, nice usage of the printer; I would really like to see a generation grow up with this technology in their everyday living.

@braddock, your assembled model looks beautiful! Again, another organic shape that looks like it could have existed in reality.

I just needed to print this as lover of Sim City and Sim City 2000. Such sweet times with those games :D

@braddock Yeah that turned out great! Would love to see you do a tutorial on your filling/priming/painting stages.

"Dat beast!" (paracit.)

sorry for the base. :(

 

So, all the parts for this guy are printed, just need some cleanup, priming and seem filling. I began printing the base, but it's going to be 325mm in diameter and a combined print time of about 80 hours! So, I think I'll leave him as is... I have other projects to get on with!

 

 

1/4 of the base I started to print. Aborted.

Very nice. Is it printed in one piece, or multiple parts?

Do you have some structures to connect/adjust them? (In case of multiple parts)

We've been working on an exciting development, a bronze filled PLA filament. First test prints went really really well, printing with the ease of normal PLA/PHA compoun. Since there is actual bronze in the filament it's 4 times heavier then PLA which is awesome for jewelry items. Straight from the 3d printer the parts have a matte finish, reminds a bit of laser sintered parts. It's very easy to sand down, much easier then PLA and you can polish it to a sick shine!

Looks great, any chance of getting any sample from anywhere in the UK?

GREAT!!! And the right place for polishing :-)

Would be great to have a possibility to get samples... Is there a way??

This is amazing! very interested. Since it's real bronze it'll also patina nicely.

Great news!

@ Takei fantastic print with lots of detail, thanks for all the closeups. That's the first question I had as well when I saw the ColorFabb post, I would really like some conductive filament. I've read that most of the conductive filaments sold have very high impedance values, there was one very low impedance filament I read about and I'm just waiting until they start selling it.

@colorfabb, glad to hear you guys are actively making new filament types looking forward to the bronze filament, even if it's not conductive I would still like it simply for the weight; who knows perhaps it could be used for some RF shielding. Also, that's totally the first part of the model I would have polished as well :mrgreen:.

@Nateokane, glad to see the birth of another machine; sometimes I think to myself that I should have bought a kit version as well, if not to be super intimate with the inner workings of the printer.

@Dreamworker, nice design, and a fantastic looking print for such a speedy print setting.

I was pretty busy last week preparing for a conference and putting the finishing touches on some of my new designs. I made an illuminated picture frame:

mWVEEY3.jpg

Ihps2zk.jpg

The inside of the frame has an insert full of LEDs, inspired by Nicolinux!! I waited until the print was at about the right part and just glued the LED frame in while the printer was paused (I am very thankful for this new feature).

C3lJ2PJ.jpg

I started the print before I went to bed and kept getting up every couple of hours to check on the status. After I put the LEDs in I checked the back of the printer and discovered that I did not check how much silver filament I had before starting the print. So instead of just starting all over again, I cut the filament flush with the bottom of the motor feeder box and followed the silver filament with the red filament until the knurled wheel grabbed a hold of the red filament and went back to bed; hence the two color frame. The frame is built for a 4x6 picture and simply clamps onto the photo via the bolts and back cover.

I also made what I call the Nickle Yo-Yo of death:

9zXzw9T.jpg

Originally designed to give me more hang time, it's like catching a baseball ever time it comes back up into your hand. I haven't been able to play with it for long durations of time because it makes my arm sore.

I also printed out my glasses frames again with significant improvements. They look similar to my other pair so I'm not posting a picture but to me they are much better. I also replaced the lenses with new shiny glasses lenses I ordered off the internet. I found a company that just makes lenses for frames, and now that they have my lens dimensions and prescription in their database I can order new lenses at will. So now my glasses can be completely destroyed and I can reprint the frames and order new lenses at any time.

Hey @AaronAlai, the screen case is really nice and clean design. Looks fantastic, very nice print. Also the two color "incident" actually looks professional. :cool: Are the white bolts threaded?

@Colorfabb! WANT! How cool is that...

Hey @Martin thanks I wasn't sure if the frame looked like a mistake or deliberate, yeah the white bolts are threaded. It took a bit of trial and error the first time around, the plastic shrinks a bit, but after I found the right dimensions I've printed bolts and corresponding threads for bolts out of different plastics from different companies with very good success and haven't had to mess with my original dimensions at all.
