Re: Ultimaker 2 pancake stepper direct drive

After seeing Anders' design, I started to build a version for my UM2 but since I lack the mechanical workshop, I thought to try it without modifying the motor shaft and using a more of the shelves knurled wheel. Unfortunately I do not just lack a mechanical workshop but also apparently the needed 3D...

Re: Invite people!

I also never experienced that I had to re-login. Here some more DNS downtime stats: Fri Feb 12 2016 12:16:01 - 12:30:02 Fri Feb 12 2016 15:11:01 - 15:25:01 Fri Feb 12 2016 18:46:01 - 19:15:01 Fri Feb 12 2016 21:37:01 - 22:46:02 Sat Feb 13 2016 00:14:01 - 00:18:01 Sat Feb 13 2016 09:20:01 - 09:26:01 ...

Re: Modified Ultimakers group

I wouldn't differentiate too much. People will be unsure when to classify their mod as heavily modded and why not let other UMO owners see what might be useful mods for them too?

Re: Making PCBs with the Ultimaker 2?

I would not recommend using a 3D printer for milling. The whole mechanics can't provide the stability and torque for milling unless you plan to mill just Styrofoam. :-) And on top the whole Ultimaker design will not withstand the dust and metal flakes long.

Re: Invite people!

I did setup a little script yesterday that tries to resolve the DNS name every minute. The DNS resolution did not work during these periodes (while other sites did not show any DNS issues): Fri Feb 12 2016 00:00 - 00:14 Fri Feb 12 2016 00:18 Fri Feb 12 2016 01:36 - 01:50 Fri Feb 12 2016 03:36 - 03:5...

Re: Making PCBs with the Ultimaker 2?

There is even something like your pogo-pins with an M6 thread:

But I think the ball in those would not scrape enough off.

Re: Making PCBs with the Ultimaker 2?

Do you think the print bed springs would not provide enough flexibility?

Re: Invite people!

The issue seems to be related to the upstream DNS server of my provider Deutsche Telekom. From time to time, the name resolver in my DSL router seems to be unable to resolve the forum name via the DNS servers that I get from the DSL provider. This seems to be also intermittent.

Re: Making PCBs with the Ultimaker 2?

We did this in high school. If you have to etch it anyway, why not go toner transfer method. Easy, fast etc :D I have never dared to use the toner transfer method since it is so dependent on the type of paper you use. It seemed to be an art by itself to find the right paper that holds the toner jus...

Re: Making PCBs with the Ultimaker 2?

...and I assume you have no problems getting Rema1000 permanent markers ;-)

I need to check with Carl if he is willing to sell me a raw, undrilled steel nozzle.

Making PCBs with the Ultimaker 2?

Hi all, I recently found this video on Youtube that shows how to create PCBs in a fairly simple way using a 3D Printer and permanent marker: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNh0ubRcTYU I was wondering now if this couldn't be done even easier with my Ultimaker 2 by just screwing in a steel nozzle in ...

Re: Invite people!

I still see DNS issues from time to time - especially in the morning. Yesterday and today. Is this a known issue?
