Hi Everyone,

 

Soon it is time for the next Ulti-evening.

Because last edition was such a success we want to keep the interactive part as the core of the ulti-evening.

This time it means we will teach you how to do various and efficient maintenance on your Ultimaker in record time. We will have members of our technical support & repair centre with us!

If you want to know all the tips and tricks, ins and outs and the ropes.. be there!

 

We will also bring some spare parts for those who are in immediate need!

 

This workshop will be mainly focussed on the Ultimaker 2.

If you have a special request about a part or Ultimaker Original let me know!

 

Some more practical information about upcoming Ulti-evening:

 

Date: 6-10-2014

Time: 17.00 - 22.00

Location: ProtoSpace, Utrecht

 

17.00 - 18.00 Arrival (bring your Ultimaker) and order food if you are hungry.

18.00 - 18.30 Short introduction

18.30 - 19.00 Food

19.00 - 22.00 Repair & Printing time!

 

Looking forward seeing you there!

Have the dual extrusion-set about a year now, but also with 5 new shipments from Ultimaker I never got it to work.

Perhaps there is a possibility to take a look with an expert?

How about a heated bed kit upgrade party? Attendees could order a kit and you bring it to Utrecht...

Awww, why focus on the UM2 mostly? The UMO also needs love and service!

Also interested in how the HB kit looks like! And my temperature sensor seems to be breaking.

Titus: Imo it simply is because most people buy their UM2 assembled and have a lot less hands on experience with tinkering on it. I can hardly imagine that UM won't have another eve dedicated to the UMO.

Btw: I am loving this and will be there for sure!

Small question: Paying for the spare parts, will that be a cash only affair?

@ Titus, everyone from Ultimaker is equally skilled on the UMO as well, so if you have any questions just ask!

And what blizz said, and also because most have build the UMO, so there is less of a barrier to take it apart if needed. It is just a different experience then the UM2.

About the spare parts, if you want to order some let me know.

For the 'tutorial', we will probably just bring some.

I like this and I would love to come, if it was more close to where I live, or if it would be on a Saterday ? Because I normally work until 17:30 ...

Dinykb: its until 22h and you can always come a bit later, not everyone arrives at 17 (on the contrary, most people are later)

I take my UMO with me I have extrusion problems with grey colorfab filament. So having a evening with service and maintenance might fit well. Haven't figured out what it is. Actually I don't think it is the colorfab filament being the guilty one since it is good filament. But after some time printing it just does not want to extrude anymore. When I stop the print I can extrude again.... So I am thinking my hotend temperature is incorrect while printing. Still need to debug that. Did some ABS prints before and they worked well.

So I will be around.

I'll be there! Excited to meet you all. My Ultimaker will probably stay at home since I'm traveling by train.

Such a great and smart opportunity :-P Hope to get my UM2 back tomorrow from the repair center. I'll try to be there!

I would like to buy an extra teflon part and some filament.

@Sander: I was wondering, are there any tools we should preferably bring?

@jroen: If they don't make it perhaps you can beg them to bring your printer to the meet :p

Will probably drop by... if anyone is carrying one of the heavily modded system, I'd sure like to see it, ie. flexible drive, direct drive, etc.

Hi Coen

Is heated bed modification + E3D hotend + direct drive + 1 power supply enough :mrgreen:

I have to admit I having problems printing at the moment.... Haven't had time to debug it.

Hi Dirkels

That looks like a big avatar. Quite some colors in it as well. How much time did it take you to print it?
