Re: BB-8 nGen time lapse

Those prints look very nice. The layers in the holoprojector are barely visible.

Re: Quality control

Most of those issues don't look like the result of poor handling during shipping though...

I suppose someone's getting their arse kicked at UM :P

Re: Missing spot

You can also open gcode files with Simplify3D. The view will probably not work with feature types but at least you should be able to see the difference between travel moves and regular moves if you set the coloring to movement speed. In my experience the interface of S3D is much nicer to work with t...

I use that spool holder too and it's great, can definitely recommend it.

Re: BB-8 Frame print

Maybe you need to increase the temperature a bit. If you print at the same speed and layer height, your flow is now twice as high.

Re: Tweaking Ultimaker 2+ settings....build plate temp?

You set the bed and nozzle temp as you change material. Then you can use any sliced file for any material (in theory).

Since I started using S3D I've started to like setting temps in the gcode though, as they might be different depending on speed, how many retractions you use, etc.

Re: Cleaning nozzles after removing?

I usually do a cold pull before switching nozzles, works fine most of the time.

Looks nice! How much more prints do you need before it's finished?

Re: Ultimaker 3 released!

I have been wondering lately, why haven't you added a filament sensor that measures whether there is filament left and that it actually moves too? Seems like it shouldn't be too difficult to get working, and would add some very useful functionality. In fact, it has already been done . Same with a fu...

Re: Help with a lifting brim, please!

I've never used tape so I can't help you with that. Clean glass at 60 °C works just fine for me when I'm using PLA. I only use a brim when I print something with sharp corners, round edges don't tend to warp as much usually. I did have some issues with poor first layer adhesion, even though the bed ...
