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?

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
