Hello from manchester UK!

Hi Nalfy.

Welcome to the forum. I only got my UM2 last October, so am pretty new also. I have found this forum to be full of clever (no not me) and helpful members. I have been following lots of strings and learned a lot from reading about other peoples and one or two of my own questions. Its a good place to learn how to get the most from the machine.

I note that you are local to me. Is this as a hobby or for business use?

Welcome Nalfy, you've got yourself a superb machine in the UM2. I'm still amazed by what it can produce so much so I ended up buying a second one :-)

As Nick said, there are loads of very knowledgable and helpful folk here. There's also been some very useful and informative guides published here:


and here


Happy printing! :-)

Hi ChrisR

I tried to cut and paste some links to the Verkstan web pages for Nalfy but it would not paste into the text.

How do you do this? And while I am asking, how do you occasionally copy part of some ones string into your reply?

Hi Nick,

To cut and paste, I highlight the link I'm after, then CTRL C to copy it and CTRL V to paste it. It then gets turned into a highlighted link you can click on. Is that what you meant?

To quote part of someones post, you can use Multiquote or Quote, you'll see these buttons at the bottom right of the post you're replying to. They're just below the "Like This" button

Does that help?

      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.
