Printing a whistle

Hiya,

 

Does anyone have a reliable whistle model, and an accompanying slicing configuration for a UMO?

 

The 'v2 whistle' from thingiverse was one of the first things I ever printed on my UMO, and it worked wonderfully - printed reliably and produced lots of noise.

 

Over the years I've improved/tinkered with my printer, and these days use Cura rather than skeinforge, and now the same thing prints even more beautifully than before, and makes no sound whatsoever.

 

I've tried quite a variety of different settings, even going back to find an old gcode file that I think was an early slicing I used, and the best I can produce is a whistle that sometimes makes some noise, but rarely loudly.

 

Whistles, containing an enclosed ball, are a great print, because of the apparent simplicity of the product, but the impossible nature of the ball, and they work! Or they should.

 

Any leads on a reliable whistle would be great.

 

Cheers,

J.

      • 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
