Makerfaire NYC 2014!!

Recommended Posts

Then let's hope for some thing:

Old: Ultimaker original, to mount...

New: heated bed for above

Pink: as in pink unicorn Cura

Borrowed: our time to listen ;-)

Sorry for order mixup it's late and I should be sleeping ;-)

The shift to pink was intentional though.

It sounds like there will be an announcement on Sept 18 evening in NYC (Manhattan). It sounds like there's room for about 50 people. If you want to be on the invitation list let me or SandervG know. Please only message one of us if you have that night available and can make it.

"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue".

That's the quote I think you are referring to. That's what the bride is supposed to add to her wedding outfit. I thought it was only american/english saying (new rhymes with blue). Is this a Dutch saying also? Is this related to the "never pull a cow from a river" saying (or whatever it is?)?

@GR5: and I have spend a lot of time in the US for my work, you tend to pickup things if you hangout somewhere for several months ;-)

The saying popped into head, as I said it was late ;-)

I heard today some rumours what UM will bring until the end of this year. So I guess this is what they will anounce. But I don't want to spoil it here... :p

Announcement will be september 18 so put that date on your calendars. And check the UM web page or search for tweets with hashtag ultimaker2:

#ultimaker2

On twitter. I'll try to remember to post some photo tweets there as I'll be there. And I have a cell phone.

I just found this photo randomly searching google images for makerfaire 2014. Random internet surprise print appearance! :mrgreen: You guys forgot the little bridges though! But I imagine they'd be pretty fragile to travel with.

Oh good point. That and some filaments! I wouldn't mind sparing the shipping fees for my next order.

Can I make an order and request to have it shipped at Maker Faire :D:D

I strongly doubt that. Their ordering system is very strict. But if you bring Sander a present, I'm sure he will make a trade - especially late on Sunday when he has to pack everything up. Especially for filament - there's usually lots of filament. But only 2 colors - pink and blue. Something useful to Sander - like maybe some cash that he can use to buy tools or something? I really don't know. Oswaldo - are you really coming all the way from Brazil? If so I want to meet you! There will likely be other people selling filament - and makershed will be selling lots of stuff. I mean there will be 70,000 people there. *someone* is probably selling filament.

Actually I bet you Illuminarti (Simon) will sell you filament. He'll probably bring some of the ones from his store (like PA6 - a nice filament - I can show you stuff I"ve printed with PA6 if you go to MF NYC and other specialty filaments). I think he's planning to sell Colorfabb maybe? You can put in your order with fbrc8.com and ask him to bring your order. Likely.

@gr5, are you George?

If yes, you probably don't remember (lots of people have visited UM booth), but we've already met at 2013 Maker Faire!

At that time, I was looking for my first prosumer printer and your UM2 demo convinced me to buy one instead of a Makerbot. I had to persuade Martijn to sell one pre-production unit after the end of the event. :)

(And, honestly, It was the best decision I've made)

It will be a pleasure to see you and the UM team again as well to know Simon.

I've sent Simon an email a couple of days ago, but haven't received a reply yet. What I really need is some spare parts for my UM2 (nozzle kit, bowden tube, oled display). It would be great if I could buy them at Maker Faire!

I will also take the opportunity to buy my second UM (an Original or the new product will be announced, if I can persuade Martijn again :D.

I thought that was maybe you. I remember the conversation. We talked on the first day I think (Saturday). I'm glad you got one of the first ever UM2s. For UM2 spare parts you will likely have better luck with Simon/Illuminarti. Send him a PM through the forums. I could be wrong though.

I bet you can get a nozzle and bowden from someone for free if you are around late Sunday. Probably just for a beer or something! In fact you might want to go out to dinner with us Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night. I don't know what my plans are but there is a good chance I will be with the UM team at least 2 of those nights. Did you maybe bring your wife with you last year? Will you be around Sep 18? If so I'll get you an invitation to the party/announcement that night (6pm in Manhattan).

I suspect UM will be selling UM Original kits - perhaps some kind of *new* kit? UM doesn't tell me much so I don't know. I recommend you wait on the UM Original until they come out with the new heated bed at least. But hopefully that will be this Sep 18.

Would be fun to finally put faces to strange internet names.

Ahhhh was that a closed chamber upgrade I saw in the first video? Weird though that it looked like something closes on top of the printer.... how does that work with a bowden? Or is the upgrade an on head extruder + chamber?!?!!?

Discuss...
