3D printing has always amazed me, now you can be amazed to. Need a model ? Tell me so and let's get that model printed!

Hallo allemaal!   Laat ik bij het begin beginnen... ik ben een 3d tekenaar, ik heb alleen niet genoeg ervaring om dit project te doen. Ik ben dus op zoek naar iemand die mij hier in kan helpen. Het gaat om het ontwerpen van een draagbaar pak die ik zelf ga 3d printen. Hierbij zijn enkele visuele referenties aanwezig maar een deel zal ook neerkomen op overleg.

Hey Guus,


My best practices are with the Ultimaker company.

The printers they offer don't need anything to be set up, just plug it in and go.

Their new printer: the Ultimaker 3+ will do exactly what you need.



Logically, one of the most important things.

Not to worry, they're well in your price range:

- Standard version: €2.995,- excl vat

- Extended: €3.695,- excl vat


Build volume:

The standard version comes with a build volume of 215 x 215 x 200 mm, but it has an extended version which makes printing of objects possible up to 215 x 215 x 300 mm.



This printer has a dual extruder which makes it possible to print two materials at the same time.

They have now also included easy to switch print heads so that you can decide what head best suits your filament or printjob.



In terms of quality, these printers are also fine. They can print fast and in almost ridiculous resolution.

You can even get them to print at a layer height of only 20 micron. 



As far as now known the Ultimaker can print the following materials:

Nylon, PLA, ABS, CPE, PVA, CPE+, PC and TPU 95A.

So enough to choose from :)



You can almost paint any 3d material, just make sure to sand it down properly and use the right primers/paint.



If needed, Ultimaker has great support. Since they are a Dutch company they also communicate in both English and Dutch.

This sounds like a shortage or an overheating problem.

Have you looked at the printers main board for shortages? (Maybe black/brownish spots)


If that's okay, try and measure the temperature of different parts of the board while printing.

Check this for parts like steppermotor drivers and headers.


(Be careful while doing this, try to not touch anything on the board if possible because that could lead to a shortage or you could get zapped)

Care to elaborate?

What parts do you have already / What sort of a printer are you going to make / What will the size be / etc. etc.


Try to be as detailed as possible so we can help you further :)
