Anyone tried https://github.com/michthom/MIDI-to-CNC/ yet on the Ultimaker2?

I know its not printing per se, but I wanted to hear how wel my UM2 makes music (I would have a big music box!)

Wasn't sure if the pre-programmed settings for the UM1 apply for version 2 and didn't want to risk damaging it. Anyone who can convert the settings to v2?

No matter which printer you select in this tool you have to give it the min and max safe values. I recommend 1,1,1 for the minimums and 200,200,200 for the maximums. The UM2 can print a little bit larger objects than the UM. But 200mm is a very safe limit for both printers.

I recommend putting the minimal Z at 10mm, so you cannot hit the metal clips on the bed. As that's not so good for your nozzle.

@Daid: I unfortunately already found that out the hard way (during a print, not with this ;) ). I have a nice big horizontal slit in the nozzle that plastic is sticking to.

I've asked for a quote regarding some spare parts (including a nozzle) more than a week ago but so far no reply yet.

I'll try to make sure to bring some spare UM2 nozzles on the UltiEvening monday.

@Daid: That would be awesome, I'll make sure to bring some cash to pay for them (I assume you don't have a money terminal :p)

 

I normally get payed in chocolate-chip cookies. Just saying ;-)

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
