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

I am on a business trip to Switzerland, so no chance to do anything with my printer :-(

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

Agree! Maker and Education is what they have been good at and should concentrate on. But as long as people buy the UM3 and now the UM5 as "industrial grade" for "industrial grade prices"... why not take their money :-)

Re: Folding 3D printer.

There is a older project - FoldaRap - that seems similar: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:15877

Prints don't start after Tinkergnome Firmware Update

I upgraded my UM2 with Dual Extruders today from Tinkergnome firmware version 16.09 to 17.10.1 using the Tinker-MarlinUltimaker2-dual-17.10.1.hex file. Now I have the strange behavior that when I start a print, the printer heats up the buildplate and nozzle and then just sits there at "Heating up......

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

Did anybody here convert an UM2 to 1.75mm? If so, maybe have a look at viewtopic.php?f=9&t=934. Maybe you can help me.

Which bowden and collet/retainer for UM2 1.75mm conversion?

Hi all, I would like to finally finish installing a 1.75mm extruder as a second extruder on my UM2. I have already installed the feeder motor, a mirrored version of the IRobertI feeder and a 1.75mm hotend. The only thing I am missing is the bowden from the feeder to the printhead. I think that a num...

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

Very distracting in most cases in my opinion - unless you will switch to producing dance videos or make-up tips in the future, then music might work :-P

Re: Paper like, flexible prints when using black PLA

That is a good idea. I have contacted the manufacturer, so I will wait with the drying procedure until they come back to me. Maybe they just replace the spool...

Re: Paper like, flexible prints when using black PLA

I do have the Olsson block and did a few cold pulls but that seems to have no effect regarding my issue. I think I can rule out the nozzle and bowden since before and after printing with this particular spool of black filament, I could print fine with other spools of filament. I wonder now if this i...

Re: Paper like, flexible prints when using black PLA

I have ordered a spool of black DasFilament PLA now to see if that works better.

Re: Paper like, flexible prints when using black PLA

Unfortunately that roll is out... :-( I tried printing with higher temperatures since some people on the net mentioned that Filament4Print PLA should be printed towards the upper end of their recommended temperature range of 190-225°C. I also tried bumping the feed rate to 105% but nothing helped. T...

Re: Paper like, flexible prints when using black PLA

I checked that. I use the builtin PLA profile of the UM2. I also did a quick check with the caliper and both filaments seem to be more or less the same diameter: The white PLA was 2.84 and the black PLA was even a little more, more like 2.88. So I would expect a little over extrusion but not such un...
