Having a 3D Printer can open up a world of customization faster and closer to home. With the Ultimaker 2, you can personalize the objects in your life and have fun doing it. Designed for both the novice and the skilled, the Ultimaker 2 is well built and easy to interface with, and it creates stunning 3D prints. For its large build sizes, included accessories, robust software and print-quality score, the Ultimaker 2 wins!!!
Every inch of the Ultimaker 2 is designed to create the most effortless and enjoyable 3D printing experience ever. With ground-breaking 20 micron definition and near silent operation, it’s a leap forward in accurate 3D printing.
Everything's taken care of from the moment it’s out of the box, it’s ready to go. Intuitive software quickly and intelligently prepares your design for print. A radial scroll wheel allows for adjustment to speed and heat even whilst it’s printing. Long print jobs come with the reassurance of hours upon hours of continuous reliable printing. And even the heated print bed rarely needs adjustment.
There’s a sort of 3D alchemy that occurs when the software, materials and printer are combined. Together they create one of the most enjoyable and seamless 3D printing experiences around. It’s a kind of magic really.
Smart and intuitive, our advanced software makes 3D printing a breeze. Endless testing tells us the filaments we've chosen make our printers sing.
Evolved through open source, it’s a printer for the people by the people. The ingenious print head silently and precisely maps out your creation to an accuracy of 20 microns. It means print lines are barely perceivable creating a really smooth finish. And with its heated print bed and highly efficient dual fans, the Ultimaker 2 even takes overhangs and bridging in its stride. Did we mention it’s fast too?
If there were ever a time to upgrade your AutoCAD license it
is now! So what's new? Whilst there doesn’t seem to be any one “new” thing,
there is a plethora of product enhancements to existing commands and features.
One thing that isn't new is the DWG file type, yes AutoCAD 2016 will still run
on AutoCAD 2013 DWG.
Here’s a brief list of some of the new enhancements and features…
Snap to geometric centre. A new object
snap mode – geometric centre, or GCE at the command-line – allows you to snap
to the centre of closed polylines, whether regular or irregular.
has some new options.
The DIMcommand has been updated.
The command has combined all dimensions creation controls into one command.
Simply type DIM on the command line and right-click. Thankfully, I no longer
have to find or remember the commands for the individual dimension types.
Attach and view Autodesk Navisworks (.NWC, .NWD)
and BIM 360™ Glue models directly inside AutoCAD.
It’s great to see some point cloud feature
extraction capabilities being introduced in the product. You can create
as-built drawings from point clouds, extract your floor plan directly from a
cross-section of the point cloud and snap to edges, corners, and centrelines of
point cloud geometry using Object Snap.
AutoCAD 2016 creates better PDFs. They are
smaller, generated more quickly and now searchable.
Visual enhancements help you see your drawings
more clearly. Readability is improved with true curves instead of line
Smart Dimensioning - automatically create
appropriate measurements. Pass the cursor over selected objects to get a
preview of the dimension.
Well that’s it for this non-exhaustive look at AutoCAD
2016’s new features/enhancements – these are great and will be very useful
indeed. It is also very nice to see so many AUGI Wish List items addressed in
