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

The Ultimaker 3 got the exact same power supply and the same heated bed, the only (larger) difference in power should be that it got two heaters for the print head.

If those are making your power flicker... Then you got a supply problem...

Re: Best wood-fill filament?

I prefer using 0.6mm nozzles with all wood-filled filaments, no clogs as long as you dont leave the filament hot for longer times without extrusion. The Corkfill is a really nice finish, but it has a very light texture, so it is more of a dark brown with a nice luster. The Woodfill has a bit heavier...

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

I would just do some TIG fusion tack welding at the end of each anchor, it puts very little heat into the material, so you get very little deformation problems compared to welding longer sections, and it works great on stainless steel!

Re: Bondtech BMG

No problem, i was not very specific in my first post :-)

The ZGE looks like it might be a lot better solution for direct drive on the UM gantry, and i am very interested to see how that project moves forward!

Re: Bondtech BMG

Yeah, I would not even think about mounting it as a direct feeder on a UM gantry, I was more thinking about the FT-5 guys.

Bondtech BMG

Have you guys seen the new Bondtech BMG extruder?

Looks like a pretty nice option for a lightweight geared 1.75mm extruder.

Re: UM2 Material Settings for UM Flex-PLA and InnoFlex 45?

The Ultimaker Flexible PLA has been discontinued for quite a while now, even if i think we have one or two old spools still left in stock.

My current favorite flexible filament is the Ultimaker TPU95A and the Ninjatek Cheetah, followed by the Polymaker PolyFlex.

Can it (the FT-5) handle a 2500g extruder?

I am looking into building a custom printer, where the extruder will be a dispenser like this: http://i.imgur.com/Xe0xl9Q.jpg The total weight of the print head will be somewhere around 2,5kg and very long (about 40cm height) I will probably build a custom machine instead, but it would save quite so...

Re: Autobed Leveling video from Tom

I have been thinking about building a large format printer, and my plan right now is to use tool probes like the one used on cnc machines to touch off the nozzle against, in combination with a brush to clean the nozzle. Something like this: http://cnc-plus.de/en/Router-Accessories/CNC-Tool-Length-Se...

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

The print head is not sold as a assembly, so you would have to order all the separate parts as spares.

Price... no idea :p

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

Actually, Ultimaker told us specifically not to sell the 2+ feeder separately at the time of release of the 2+, it was only for warranty and service replacements, and they never sent a update that said it was OK for us to sell it separately to end customers, so our sales staff acted accordingly (sug...
