Posted · Z-Unlimited now also for UM2, Kickstart campaign only 3 days left

Hey hey,

Just a quick post, I thought i will share it here as well. Yesterday I mounted succesfully an UM2 on the z-unlimited. You only need to make a hole in the backpanel [which yu don't see when you convert back to normal!!].

Official kickstart update:

Last weeks have been very busy using the Z-Unlimited installations for the follow-up of Renzo Martens’ project ‘http://www.rooiejoris.nl/chocolat’. From May 2th these life sized chocolate sculptures will be exhibited at http://www.fonswelters.nl in Amsterdam and at http://www.kw-berlin.de. Nevertheless we found some spare time in between to test drive an UM2 along the rail. And it works!

The conversion on the UM2 is even easier than the original. But… also a little bit more radical. You need to drill a hole [55x90mm] in the back panel [drill and template will be included in the kit]. By the way the hole is behind the motor cover so if you convert your Ultimaker 2 back to normal you won’t notice the hole. At the moment the firmware still needs some changes, but the control panel is already flipped [thanks Erik!].

Stretch goal XXL Colorfabb

The Kickstarter campaign is soon coming to its end. So tell your 3D printing friends who are interested in large-scale printing, there are only 3 more days to back the project and purchase a Z-Unlimited! If the campaign raises more than €30.000,- the Z-Unlimited kit will also include an XXL spool of printing material by http://www.colorfabb.com. Trust me, you need this…

    Congrats on your award. Q? I think I've seen two different photos of this elephant....1) without engraved supporter signatures, and one with. Which one is in the colorfabb lobby photo? It seems to me like it is the "smooth, non-engraved one." Are there more than just these two enormous accomplishments/elephants printed?

      • 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
