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

@Anders Olsson what make of Woodfill are you using? I did struggle with Kai Pathy's wood fill although he did recommend a miniumum of 0.5mm nozzle, the modified Robert's feeder would grind the filament or deformed it as it was softer. although when I upgraded to the bondtech feeder it had enough pr...

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

Who said Woodfill can't handle retractions? :-P 2017-06-17-1808.jpg The only modifications I have done is a different feeder gear and another type of spring in the original UM2 feeder. Ambient temperature is 30 C and I am using a 0.6 mm nozzle. (0.4 mm nozzle just does not work with this spool of wo...

Re: How much should a good 3D printer cost?

There might be a market for a really high quality printer, but I doubt that you can produce and sell such printer for the same money as an UM3. Just have a look at E3D for example, the Bigbox printer was successfully developed and all their Kickstarter printers shipped and then they realized they ju...

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 printing so...

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: 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...
