Well not *every* posting.  Just the categories I'm interested in.  It's all configurable in your settings.  And if you get overwhelmed with new topics it's easy to "remove all notifications" and just look at the new notifications as they come in.

Sigh, maybe that is working for you...for me it would be a disaster...and result in exactly what I mentioned above...and something I have never had to do in any other forum to keep track of what's new that I have not yet found interesting...just logging in should be, and was, good enough to keep track of what you had looked at.

It makes me sad that, for the past months, the majority of posts I have written here has been to highlight the disastrous state of this forum. Sadly I hardly saw the old forum...that was working...since that was around the time I bought my UMO+.

I probably wrote this before. But the only reason i'm still around here is because I have an Ultimaker, I like it, and there have been people here who have done amazing things with them. But they have slowly disappeared, or stopped posting new and interesting things :(

Edit: And now even formatting is broken...there should have been bold text above...but the forum stripped it away...and i'm to disheartened to try to add it back...

This is the last post where I will voice my thoughts on this (crappy) forum...time will tell if you manage to migrate successfully to a new forum...and if creativity will manage to come back...

    I saw bold type up there.

    Interesting...it doesn't show up in my browser (Chrome)...but if I view it in IE I can see it.

    But even when I went to edit the post...all the bold markup tags were gone...that's why I assumed that the forum took it away...

    I use Firefox a lot, which is where I could see the bold, so I went to Chrome and could still see it there.

    I'm on a PC with Win 8.1. I have not checked my Win 10 Machine.

    Hi people, regarding the migration.. we are going to initiate the migration tomorrow on Thursday. It is estimated that from approximately 10am the forum will go into lockdown and we aim to go back live on Monday 18th.

      • 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.
