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

Pff been so busy the last weeks... We built our house as a turnkey solution but I had no clue how much work remains after they are "finished" with it. Guys I need your advice: I'm demo'ing my 2 3D printers on a kids-tech-happening this weekend and the previous years I've always had them p...

Re: Cura 2.5. Why so messy?

Cura does all sorts of tricks to save printing time. What you see in your print is one of them which I think is not justified, since it saves very little time and the result is rather messy. It is called combing in old Cura and means that when the head has to move without printing, it moves over sur...

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

Coming soon...the Olsson Extruder? Well, if I had more time I would probably invent something, not sure when that time will show up though. I just wanted to test some concepts this time and get a feeling for what one can do with the metal printer. I still have a pancake stepper motor laying around ...

Re: Primer for new Ultimaker 3 users?

You should definitely print a calibration print and adjust the offset before doing anything else. Apart from that, I would expect it to work okay with the latest firmware. PVA is tricky though as mentioned. You will need a bit more patience with the UM3 by the way, certain things are really slow com...

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

Looking forward to reading this. How's baby? She is getting more and more active, only a matter of weeks before she is walking I guess, have been adapting my house for that lately :-P @Anders: Gawd I wish my last name was Hellsing, too <3 Btw. I never realized those Ruby nozzles have an actual ruby...

Re: Not enough material extruding before print

Yes, the last versions of the tinkergnome has an elusive bug that makes the printer stop every now and then. I hope they can find it soon, because it is a great firmware apart from that. Installing 15.04ex from old Cura should be safe though, just upgrade the firmware with new Cura before you return...

Re: Not enough material extruding before print

I just checked my UM2E, which does NOT suffer from this issue (at least not with files sliced in Cura 15.04, but as I recall it it works as it should with Cura 2.x too). It is running on the 15.04ex firmware, so you could try that. When thinking about it I probably only had this issue after upgradin...

Re: Not enough material extruding before print

I have also had that issue, but only on the UM2Go as I can remember. As I remember it only happened at first print after power cycling? I have a feeling that it is related to Cura rather than the firmware as I was playing with Cura 2.x when the issues happened. Then I went back to Cura 15.x and the ...

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

I have been very busy lately, it felt like I was getting nowhere past month while things were just piling up on my desk. Managed to get some things finished past week though, so the situation appears to be a bit more under control now. We finally managed to publish the article where the development ...

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

Yes it is that one, just pick one up next time you are at Gränby :-) It works for all materials I have tested so far except flexible FEP (that is a horrible material and only prints on extremely hot clean glass) and POM (that does not stick to anything) The glue included with my UM2 was quite useles...

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

Regarding XT and glass chipping. I had that problem when printing on clean glass, but after I started applying Tesa Easy Stick glue on the platform the glass has survived. It appears that the Tesa glue limits the adhesion so that the printed part comes off the grass before it risks chipping. I alway...

Re: Bondtech BMG

I agree with Neotko, the BMG is still too heavy in my opinion. All these new feeders suffer from being based on a motor that is as common and cheap as possible, which is understandable but not optimal considering those motors are rather heavy. Just as Neotko, I concluded that the extra weight on the...

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

To my surprise I actually did not find anything wrong with the stepper or the stepper driver, tested both motors with both drivers. Optionally, both my motors could be crappy, since neither of them is new. Found another unrelated cause though, which explained why the problems were so severe before I...
