Guess I'll better throw this in here myself to catch the reactions, before someone else throws it in here.

Yes, I'm not a fan of patents. But I understand the reasons why we as Ultimaker need to take these steps. Patent law pretty much requires it, as there is no other defense. It's the reality of today. The world was so much simpler 4 years ago when Ultimaker was small...

+Shai Schechter without causing more aggrivation in the S3D topic. What would you expect from Delta support in Cura? Feature wise (compared with Cura 15.04) only the round build platform is missing.
Which will be fixed in the next release:
https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/pull/1195

+Gina Häußge I've seen a few comments on Octoprint with mjpg_streamer, is that part of your default setup? We are using it in the Ultimaker 3, and need to start a bugfix session on it soon, as it crashes regularly and sends out a corrupt data stream when the network is congested.
If you are using it, wondering what your experience is.

3D printing is becoming easier and more affordable these days.
However, 3D design can still be extremely complex.

My good friend Rick Companje from Doodle3D aims to fix this. And are making good progress on their app which makes 3D design not just easy, but also fun!

However, they need some support, there is a limit to their finances. And thus need a boost to finish it!

10&11 of September, we'll be at the MakerFaire Eindhoven.
We'll be running our EmptyEpsilon spaceship simulator. Running groups of 4/5 people trough our training mission.
Do you have what it takes? We'll find out there!

Short notice warning. But I'll be showing off our www.emptyepsilon.org setup at the Spark lap SPARK Makers event. The 4th of Juni, at "Graafsebaan 3 Rosmalen, NL" (Near Den Bosch, NL), opening time 12:00

So, if you want to feel like you are part of a star-trek crew. Drop by and play a game with us.
It will look at bit like this:

And there will be a lot of shouting like "MORE POWER TO THE SHIELDS GOD DAM IT!"

There are also about ~25 other Maker projects being shown off. So plenty to see and do if you had nothing planned for the day and are within a earth lengths radius. (Or more likely 100km)

(Background info. I started building this simulator about 2 years ago. For fun, at the office. And it ever evolved after that)

My favorite game is 40% off right now! So, no more excuses, just get it.

Apperently, our new Cura 2.1 beta is a bit harder to find then you would want. It's on the Cura download page, but hidden a bit in a link.

Also, if you want to skip the survey, you can download it straight from here:

Ever seen how much bullshit there is in 3D printing these days?

We released our beta of Cura 2.1 on Friday. It's good, it's different, so you might need to get used to it a bit. But it has many many improvements.

Anyhow, look at this article:
http://www.fabbaloo.com/blog/2016/4/14/powerful-cura-open-beta-3d-print-slicer-is-ready-for-you-to-download

Someone who says they are into 3D printing as of 2007 did not notice that he mixed up the old and the new version. Giving it the oddest mixup review that I ever read. Expressing praise for new features that where not in the version that he reviewed, as well as praising odd things in the old design as improvements.

+Fabbaloo you just exposed yourself as now knowing your shit.
