Great idea, and certainly very interesting, I have it already internalized.

but ... why did you have it not published here with us?

Something interested many on 3D printing, as well as me at the beginning:

- The known limitations of such a machine, some potential customers are initially was not clear.

- The expectations of such a machine are often much too high and maybe even utopian.

- A very fine resolution of the Z-axis robs above all a lot of time, unfortunately you will not get much more.

- 3D objects must be matched to the capabilities of the machine, then it can give pleasure. Other way around the 3D experience leads to large disappointments.

Nevertheless, everything related to 3D printing is stunning interesting. Especially as a private individual you can suddenly create small and big things. Useful or art things are suddenly within reach. A small individual factory for anything and anyone.

:-P I love it.

    Good write up, however, 20 microns on a UM2 is pointless, and very different to 25 microns on a Form1

    It's true that the Z axis on the UM2 can move in such small increments, but you'll never see the benefits of it in your prints, it'll just increase the print time beyond anything acceptable. I can see improvements from 40 microns to 60 microns, but even this adds many hours to a print.

    Below 40 is not visibly better, you run into other factors such as nozzle size, ooze etc.

    I'm trying to sell my printer, hopefully I won't have too but something has come up. I have quite a bit more stuff to add to this though, and if I don't have to sell I'll keep going.

    I think it will not be very difficult to find buyers for a probably almost new Ultimaker2.

    You'll probably have well considered ...

    Good luck

      • 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.
