Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

I am trying to sort out "the underextrusion problems from hell" on my UM2Go. :-( Changed nozzle, TFM, bowden, filament and firmware so far with no luck. Tried repeatedly to feed filament by hand and the pressure required does not appear excessive, so there must be something wrong with the ...

Re: Cura 2.5 sneak preview

- Faster slicing (~2x as fast). Cura is now multithreaded in certain strategic places. There is still quite a bit of room for improvement, but it's getting there. - Disable auto slicing. - Much faster (~10x as fast) project saving & loading Nice work, slicing really is MUCH faster now! :-) I te...

Re: Interesting... E3D Titan Aero

Well it is starting to look decent I would say, although now it is essentially an Makerbot hotend/feeder with a gear on it ;-) It would be interesting with a higher gear ratio and a smaller/lighter stepper. The motor in the pictures is still huge in my opinion. That size stepper motor is probably th...

Re: $99 printer, whuuuut

ONO actually released a video a few weeks ago which suggests that it is possible to some extent to use a mobile phone screen for curing resin to form a 3D-structure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7VPUtaFAn0&feature=youtu.be Tiko, as I talked about earlier, on the other hand have now halted th...

Re: Printer stopped?

What firmware are you running?
What did the display show?

Printers using recent versions of the tinkergnome firmware sometimes does this, although I am starting to suspect that it is some more general issue.
Here is a long thread about this: https://github.com/TinkerGnome/Ultimake ... /issues/56

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

Regarding the patent discussion, it is an interesting one. I would say filing for a patent for the autoleveling is a natural step for Ultimaker. It is a rather clever solution which uses novel technology and certainly is of value (if they make it a bit more reliable). I think the reasons why Ultimak...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

I heard a strange noise coming from the printer :-o Not the feeder but didn't sound good :cry: it was the 'y' axis motor that was beginning to seize :-x and was a bit hot. Interesting, I never heard of the x-y-axis motor failing before but I noticed a strange noise from one of the axis on my UM2 la...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

Anders: I hope that after (or during) your metal printer training, you get to share some videos/pictures... So curious about those things! :) We did the first test print on the training today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oxUeobIwQI :-) I am extremely busy right now, so I don't have much time d...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

I am simply way too busy right now do write any extensive forum post. Things should be a bit less busy in a few weeks though. Today, I have among other things been testing the repeatability of the Z-positioning on the Delta Tower: 2017-02-15-0658.jpg And been extruding some boron carbide plastic wit...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

In case you are wondering why I am disappearing from the forum from time to time, it is simply because I am very busy. We got a few new toys at work lately which requires attention, among other things. First a new extruder, that I have been stress-testing with boron carbide lately :-) 2017-02-04-057...

Re: Coffee chat (since the other thread is huge!)

Pictures or it didn't happen! :-D No photos of that incident, unfortunately. Unplugging the power cord and the battery ASAP was the only thing in my mind as the keyboard was instantly filled with coffee and the excess was pouring onto the desk and further down on the floor. :shock: And I don't thin...

Re: Delta Tower heated bed upgrade

I think this one was much less expensive than the current models, I remember seeing something like 5kEuro for a kit (?), which is still quite a lot though. They don't offer these "small" models anymore though as far as I can see. I did try to cut holes in the bubbles with a razor blade, bu...

Re: Block v3 or Olsson Block

I've used both the "Olsson" block from 3dsolex and the V3 block from 3dsolex and I find the Olsson block to be a huge improvement from not having it at all but the block V3 is only a minor improvement. Funny that you wrote that because that is precisely why I did not make any upgraded ver...

Re: New heater block to fit standard nozzles on Ultimaker 3

Please don't! Your insight and opinions are very valuable! Ultiarjan posted a first basic print test. Basically it doesn't seem to be more than a easy mod. Anyhow shiny and red for looks. Well, I basically share your opinion. It was a very good review by UltiArjan by the way, anyone who likes to re...
