  2. Sorry for the late response by modifying the gcode just by adding T1 works correctly
  3. My local reseller has finally got back to me with a quote of over $1000 and three weeks delivery for the spare part....
  4. Thanks sir. I fixed it by setting the filament diameter in cura.
  5. Am hoping to use this plugin. Have installed and loaded {machine_nozzle_size} into Cura 4.4.1 and then loaded a STL file. The program immediately crashes. If I delete the {machine_nozzle_size} presence there is no problem but then I don't have the feature. In addition to nozzle size was also hoping to have a filament diameter listed. There are some printers that can print multiple filament diameters would be great to auto identify in file name.
  6. @johnse I am running win 10-64bit on an HP Omen and having the same issue with Cura 4 where it does not want to open all the time. Its random so far that i can tell. Other times Ill try to open it and it shows in the task manager but does not show on screen. I have had multiple instances of the program also when checking task manager (where in frustration I've clicked it several times) but still no program loaded onscreen. It practically takes an act of god to get this thing booted up. I have reinstalled slightly earlier versions all to no avail. I have also clicked and not had it load and went to other projects and had Cura load up literally several minutes later. Approximately 5%-10% of the time it will load and be fine.
  7. Yesterday
  8. In this case you can add these steps to the end-script in Cura or to the according gcode script in the printing host (if applicable). My "print finished" script in Octoprint looks like this: (it's just an example, YMMV) ;disable all heaters {% snippet 'disable_hotends' %} {% snippet 'disable_bed' %} ;end retract M302 S0 G90 G92 E11.0 G1 E0 F1500 M400 M302 S170 ;reset settings M501 ;move to parking pos T0 G0 X23 Y200 F10800 ;G28 Z0 G0 Z200 F2000 ; disable motors M84 M117 I guess that's a different issue. You can test the fans in the "Advanced" menu. Does it apply to both printheads?
  9. Great to hear your printers are working now! I forwarded your WiFi findings to my colleagues working on the S5 printer's firmware. We had WiFi related problem reports before, but could never reproduce it. Your report gives some new details that hopefully will help find the problem.
  10. Hi everyone, I am currently undertaking a dissertation research entitled “Procurement routes for 3D printed facades: Using additive manufacturing technologies to drive supply chain transformation” as part of an MSc in Façade Engineering. The survey is designed for facade professionals and 3D printing professionals respectively. I am interested in understanding the potential of 3D Printing in the façade industry and how would the use of additive manufacturing technologies influence conventional procurement routes. It would be greatly beneficial for this study if you could complete the questionnaire accessible through the link below. It contains 12 questions and should take about 10 minutes to complete. https://uwe.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_56XYyatNQfQfkxL Thank you, Loredana

  13. Hi Guys Im currently an architecture student and was thinking of 3D printing a model this week. I have attached a sketchup image of the model I will be 3d printing but was wondering if anyone would want to help me with the best quality settings for a Ultimaker 2+ 3d printer. This will be used for my final presentation thus I would want it to look as crisp as possible however I have never used the 3D printers before. 3D printer.obj
  14. Hi All , i have been trying for weeks to print this , would any of the members please have a look and tell me what im doing wrong, or is it the model ? thank you CFFFP_para.3mf
  15. People kept badgering me to add this feature (https://www.cnckitchen.com/blog/gradient-infill-for-3d-prints) but I'm not yet convinced it's a good idea. Anyway, it's been a rainy weekend here so I had to do something. Here's an example of what it does... Notice how the infill that's away from the walls is thinner than the infill that's close to the walls. If you want to try it, you can find the builds at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0 Please, please, please, read the README.md file that's there before using any of my builds and do make backups of your configurations, profiles, project files, etc. before you try it out. All feedback is welcome, either here or at https://github.com/smartavionics/Cura/issues
  16. Hello, I'm testing the beta and I'm happy that Cura is now starting without a compatibility mode. It was probably due to an HTTP request, after shortly after running in compatibility mode I was able to start Cura normally. But now in beta I have a gray border on the bed above and below, and that without skirt / brim / raft. What could be the reason for this? A new function? I use an Ender 3 Pro.
  17. Actually I was printing via USB connection. Could this be the issue? And also the Fans on the sides seem not to work - just the main Fans is running when printing Any thoughts on that? Thanks for your help!
  18. Hi @all This is my first post here, and I come up directly with a question... I use Cura since a long time, and I'm sure that it has worked in a previous version. I create the supports for overhangs of my object in the 3D Designer directly and don't use Curas support option for it. My problem is, if I create a wall of 0.4mm (same as nozzle size), Cura create a GCode for two lines for this "wall". I have read this Thread here: https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/20759-how-to-get-cura-to-slice-my-04-mm-walls ... But this is not my problem. I can slice the thin walls, but I get allways a print where my support walls will be printed with a thikness of ~0.8mm, because they will be printed with two rounds of the nozzle. I want to have supports like in the spiralizing mode or Curas Support walls, where the nozzle moves only one times for the support wall. In other slicers is this no problem. Why Cura create a gcode where the nozzle drives two times for the wall ? In the pictrues I have attached, only one line is shown for the support wall, but during the print, two walls will be printed.

  19. Bath interferometers. I have made about 20 of these for people who use them to test their telescope mirrors. They are amazingly accurate and can do better than a $40,000 Zygo PSI optical tester. These can test to almost 1/1000 of a wavelength of light although having the mirror within 1/10 of a wave is more than good enough. Basically anything in the photo you suspect is 3d printed - is 3d printed. The screwdriver is not and the tripod that holds it is not. Everything else plastic is 3d printed. Mostly PLA, some parts on the interferometer itself are nylon as they need to bend. 3 nylon parts you can see in the zoomed in version - sticking up the highest (not the knob which is higher I suppose) is the nylon lens holder, the cube holder also and the mirror holder which has a spherical pocket that goes around that sphere on the post. I've made quite a few of these and I keep tweaking the design. The original design is not mine but got it from thingiverse.
  20. OK I think I've found the problem Problem is with the positioning of the eye sockets which are relatively widely spaced. Scaffolding clearly doesn’t like starting on a shell at the base of the structure. I found that I could get scaffolding to start when I sank the head down to give clear printbed below the eye sockets. At that point, the scaffolding emerges quite happily. However, I wouldn’t choose to split the head at this particular position. The photo below shows that I almost have to split the head in half. The alternative is a very fine infill printed in Breakaway or PVA. But that makes for more complicated post-print work.
  21. I don't know - look at the settings in Cura - try to find out how the filament diameter is set. I did this once and it took me an hour I think. It was confusing. I had to change it in 2 places - both in the materials (the materials have a diameter) and in the printer settings. I may have done more work than necessary. Once I understood that it was critical to fix this in Materials it didn't take long. I then just had to find a way to get cura to accept the material for my printer.
  22. I'm printing a hollow puppet head for a client. Whatever orientation I choose, there is always a 'ceiling' which needs support. The orientation illustrated below makes most sense as it allows me to provide a hole at the bottom through which the client can insert eye units etc. The trouble is that the eye socket units are designed without any initial contact with the shell. I've instructed infill to be generated everywhere, but it just chooses to support the ears on the outside, and whatever I do doesn't seem to produce scaffolding for the eye sockets. I see I could programme a very faint infill which would be printed by printcore 2 (Breakaway), but that will make cleaning up the interior more complex (?). How do I get Cura to produce scaffolding inside this puppet's head?
  23. @imcarterschmidt could you check the Cura 4.5 beta, with that plugin enabled? A third party component in that plugin has been fixed/updated by UM, which hopefully fixes these performance issues.
  24. Habe mit dem neuen Update ein Riesen Problem nach dem Slicen sieht mein Projekt anders aus siehe: Oben Cura 4.0 Unten Cura 4.4.1 mein Problem oder ein Bug? system MacOsx und iMac danke henryold
  25. I've noticed a significant increase in print times using the Cura slicer. Prints that used to take me 4 hours to print are now taking close to 8. I have not changed any settings in my profile to allow this significant increase in print time. I've even checked it against my Simplified3D slicer and my basic settings are showing closer to my normal print time. Has Cura changed something that i'm not aware of that impacts print time that much? I prefer Cura over S3D but I can't be wasting twice the amount of print time on my machines. Thanks for your help!
  26. - edit your Gcode in notepad (assuming your on a windows machine) - do a search for Layer:136 - Delete all the gcode prior to the start of Layer:136 - find the code below Layer:136 that starts with G0 and make note of the Z height. It should read with a Z and a number immediately after that. example "Z14.2". Also Note the closest E value to Layer:136. Example "E0.01165" - using my example numbers add this Gcode to the top. G92 Z14.2 E0.01165 Save the gcode, home the printer, then start the print back up. It should start printing correctly from that layer.
