It's a project from Joris. Known from the spiralize function, he's also involved in the Kamermaker project.

And, he's planning to bring the large Z rail attachment (which he calls "unlimited Z") to kickstarter so everyone can make huge prints.

The prints he's making are also special, as he's stitching multiple GCode files together to get areas with different settings.

    That's on purpose. But an experiment... : )

    It doesn't look nice maybe, but it worked!!

    I needed support from half way but didn't want to spend time on printing the support from the bottom, so i started it 8 cm before i needed it..

    as expected i got a nice birdsnest, but on top of that the support was being build.. so most of the hanging stuf should be removed anyway...

    Less nice is that i just see nr one has fallen over and that i just arrived at home... a well, will restart or resume it tomorrow...

    Cool Joris. Your the first I know who is doing a birds nest on purpose. Building support on this is smart. Now I understand why you had to stitch several files to one gcode file. Also the idea of useing cord to stabilze the prints is great. Nr one shows what might happen without. Do you use octoprint or sth to be able to shut down a printer from home? The quality of the webcams is also great. Even worked with the crappy and slow company network...

    >> sth

    ?!?! don't know sth...?

    i use octoprint

    The cams are done by minivegas, its not 'just streaming' images to the web, its there profession, so far i know every cam needs its own computer to streameverything right...

    In the UM's i have some extra camera's, but cannot share due to bandwidth [don't want to disturb the real feeds]

    would love to stream to ustream, so if somebody knows how to stream mjpg-streamer [comes with the octopi image] to ustream of livestream or whatever, please let me know (or maybe you may set it up for me : )

    cheers joris

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
