lol! they may want to include the four little black plastic spacers for the knurled bolts at some later date. As is, that head should produce some "intriguing" looking prints.... :-)

    I particularly like the "extended" stud feature. That's a "special" extra, which together with the dripping head, will combine together to help create some very artistic effects.... along the lines of - you go to print one thing and something entirely different gets created :-D

    Swordriff: yeah the real possiblites lies in multi-material extrusion, even if i am more intrested in combining ridgid and flexible materials in the same print than printing dissolvable support :)

    I agree this will nock down the parts and bleed filament between the heads. The bleeding between the heads is common on the dual head extrusions.

    I'm confident they will come up with something but it will be a next gen product. Their sales seam to be going well on this product so I don't know what the push would be for them to continue with this aged machine and move onto a fresh design.

      • 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
