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....

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
