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 ;-)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
