Re: First time owner, need advice

In general AWG12 wire is AWG12 wire, so you could use the speaker wire as it is the same gauge. Just make sure that you are not near any hot parts with the speaker wire. If you need to be close to hot parts, e.g. a heated bed, then wires with silicon insulation are better.

Re: Simple 3D Printer mainboard for a filament joiner?

It is surprising how little modification is needed to convert the Adafruit Sous Vide cooker code example to a working filament fuser code :lol: I used the Sous_Viduino code from Adafruit as a starting as it has a menu, PID and storage for set values and uses the RGB backlight version of the monochro...

Re: Simple 3D Printer mainboard for a filament joiner?

I finally managed to convert the ideas that I had collected over (too many) months into an Arduino shield to drive the filament fuser! The shield has a 12V input, an optional 12V to 5V step-down converter to drive the 5V part without the need of an USB connection and the necessary parts to drive the...

Re: Suddenly my SD card isn't read by my printer

The card that came with my UM2 also was not readable anymore suddenly some weeks ago. Since I always used two cards interchangeable, I just continued with the remaining one and threw the other away... maybe I should have tried this tool :-(

Re: Whose good with CAD? Mount for UM2 printhead

The problem is that only if you have the exact measurements of the mounting points you could create a CAD for it. So you need to at least provide a 2D drawing with some measurements for the holes and such before somebody could look into this. But I agree with Neotko, there is no better way to learn ...

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

If Amazon delivers as promised, I will be busy outdoors tomorrow: The key switch on my electric garage door opener decided to break and the door went up & down erratically. Now I have to replace the whole thing. I thought I could fix the old one but the lousy micro switches inside just felt apart wh...

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

Any old leather jacked should do - old motorbike jackets are good as they have the necessary buttons to close up tight all the way up.

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

Based on my (limited) welding experience, I found aluminium easier to weld than steel with a TIG welder. I hope you got an automatic welding mask and not one of those simple shields or masks that usually come with the kits? If not, get one! You will have so much more fun welding with a mask that swi...

Re: Cura 2.6 Beta!

BTW: Is it tradition at Ultimaker to send out Cura release announcements after they replaced the download link but before they had time to update the link to the release notes? I have seen this a number of times now that if you follow the announcement to the download page, the download link is there...

Re: We Upgraded!

The problem with the browser zoom is that it enlarges everything. By the time the font is in a comfortable size, the rest of the page looks very awkward since the graphics get scaled too and they seem too large then.
