Ulti-evening 17th of November 2014

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

Soon it is time again for the next Ulti-evening.

We want to keep the interactive part as the core of the ulti-evening.

In that regard we will do a demo and as a group drill out nozzles ranging from 0.5 to 1.2mm

It is up to the user to decide what size they want, and we will supply the nozzles.

 

With a bigger nozzle you can print faster, because your layers will be thicker and you can extrude more. Mainly used for big prints.

 

Please leave a comment in the bottom if you want to join and if you have an Ultimaker Original or Ultimaker 2.

 

Some more practical information about upcoming Ulti-evening:

 

Date: 17-11-2014

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 Drilling & Printing time!

 

Looking forward seeing you there!

:D I was thinking of drilling my nozzle out the day before yesterday :p

Not sure if I can be there though, perhaps I can make it without my UMO.

From .5 to 1.2 thats quite a big range! Do you guys have advice on what size could be useful in what kind of applications? How are you going to drill them out? What will happen to the "shoulder" as Joris calls it, the surface of the nozzle tip? And will you also change that?

I bought it to be able to print small things. Printing a vase would be like 100% disaster. But on H0 scale trains it might be useful. Haven't tried it out yet, I have print jobs for the next months. Don't dare to run the printer when I am not at home. And for the night it makes too much noise....

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
