  2. It is going to cross that area twice every layer...no way to avoid it. try different retraction settings, printing slower/cooler, to help minimize stringing.
  3. Is there a small down-arrow next to the “print to file” button? Press the arrow and see if print to USB is an option.
  4. Hi, I agree that the "fast" profile is shit, and I can't really see any use for it. But to be fair there are some significant changes between normal and fast beside the layer height. "Outer wall speed" goes from 23 mm/s to 50 mm/s "Inner wall speed" goes from 45 mm/s to 55 mm/s "Outer wall Acceleration" goes from 500 mm/s to 2000 mm/s "Inner Wall Acceleration" goes from 1000 mm/s to 2000 mm/s
  5. I know this is a known issue with Cura and i think i know why would not open, in the folder of cura there is a installer for Microsoft c++ 2015 redistributable, The thing is i'm not completely sure if this is the reason why, but i hope the community could help many of us not being able to use this outstanding software. If you go to control panel, there is a lot of versions of Microsoft c++ redistributables installed that comes with windows (at least in my case) i have these: 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2017 versions, but i dont have the 2015 version that cura comes with, the 2015 version, but if i try to install it it doesnt let me because i have already a newer version of it (2017) The thing is that this may be the reason why many of us cant open cura but i need some help to figure it out. cura 4.3 only worked once with compatibility settings but now it just wont open (i get the splash screen then a window shows up for a second and it auto closes). Cura haven't patch the issue nor help anyone at all for what i have read in the forum. Can anyone whos pc runs cura with no issues tell me what versions of Microsoft c++ redistributable have install on their pcs? What i think is that people who had older versions of it, cura automatically install the 2015 version that it needs to run and that's why some people doesnt have this issue. I hope you guys can help... Thanks in advance!
  6. Today
  7. You could save the file and use Printrun (pronterface) or OctoPrint to print the file.

  10. Yesterday
  11. Here's a picture. It's below the *outer* wall, and yes, I have done that and the hex driver does pass through the plastic hole; I was talking about the small wall underneath the screw inside the feeder.
  12. Please show a photo of before you close it. There should be quite a bit of tension on the spring before you put the 2 halves together. The screw head should be *below* the wall. In other words when fully assembled, the hex driver needs to pass through a plastic hole in the feeder before it's possible to touch the screw head.
  13. Try setting "minimum wall flow" to 50. I don't know much about this issue - you could mess a little bit with line width (set it to 0.35mm instead of 0.4). Also maybe play with "print thin walls". Maybe? @burtoogle is the expert on this issue and I forget what he said exactly but I think you just need the "minimum wall flow" thing. Maybe.
  14. your first post was approved a week ago. Your second within 7 minutes.
  15. I have an Ultimaker 2+ which had stopped feeding, so I disassembled the feeder to clean it out, and now I am finding that the tension spring refuses to re-tension. As far as I can tell it looks exactly like the pictures in the assembly instructions say it should, except that when I close it back up and go to tighten the tension screw, the screw will go down into the nut but this does not have the effect of tightening the spring. The nut isn't stripped, and it was at the correct tension mark when I disassembled it. The ledge at the bottom of the spot for the tension screw is deformed slightly as though the screw has been pressing into it. Does anyone have any suggestions about what this could be/things I can try to fix it?
  16. Over a week old and still waiting to be approved by a mod? BUMP!

  18. I guess this could be a future road map feature, future enhancement somehow - to partition prints maybe...
  19. And now I know! THANK YOU, this may have just saved me a few hrs of my life... Cool

  21. In vase mode you can only print one object at a time. The spiralized mode is a continuous printing mode and that's the reason why they are connected. The printer extrudes the filament all the time during screwing up to the top.
  22. Hi Jakob! Danke fürs Feedback! Um den Chimera+ auf 3 mm umzubauen musst du schon ein paar Sachen machen. Auf der 2. Seite ziemlich unten habe ich das genau beschrieben, wie ich das gemacht habe (inkl. Bild). Hast du das schon gelesen? Um die Anfertigung der neuen Heatbreaks wirst du nicht herumkommen. Da gibt es einige Seiten im Internet, wo du das machen lassen kannst. Mit ca. 100€ wirst du rechnen müssen; dafür gleich aus Titan am besten. Die ist dann sogar besser als die 1.75mm Heatbreaks von E3D, weil die sind nur aus Edelstahl (Wärmeleitfähigkeit). Die Bowden Kupplungen habe ich zuerst mit Epoxydharz verklebt, hat jedoch wegen den hohen Temperaturen im Heated Chamber nicht gehalten. Mit Raumtemperaturen wird es wahrscheinlich funktionieren aber am besten ist, dass du die Kupplungen gleich anschweißt - ist aber auch nicht grad einfach wegen der dünnen Wandstärke. Wenn du sonst noch spezifische Fragen hast, einfach fragen. Ohne Heated Chamber reicht eine normale Wasserkühlung mit z.B. 120er Radiator vollkommen aus.
  23. Hi and this is my first post, so please be gentle! Ive been printing for about a week, printed a number of PLA object and when trying to build 2 vase's in vase mode, Cura strings the two together! Could someone advise me what I may be doing wrong? Many thanks,
  24. I would like an option in the Cura software to update the view of the model as the printer is actually printing.
  25. Let me first says I have zero experience with Cura pre 4.2 but In theory the scrip should work the same. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. IF AND ONLY IF that is true and there is no automatic update function, there should be a "scripts" folder where your instance of Cura is installed. For 4.3 on Windows 10 that folder location is "C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 4.3\plugins\PostProcessingPlugin\scripts". In here you should see the script file "PauseAtHeight.py". If so, make a copy of the existing file for safe keeping. In Windows you can "right click, copy" then "right click, paste" the file and follow the above procedure to replace it. Good luck.
  26. Current state is that - more S5 printers suffer the same problem. - It's not just the STL, it's multiple STLs - It's not a certain version of Cura (had the same issue with cura 3.6, 4.2.1 and 4.3) - It's only on the .2 profile (and any change I did, didn't resolve or improve anything, except reducing speed to less than half). The only way I see it: the 6500 EUR Ultimaker S5 isn't able to print 70mm/s on a .2 layer height. ... It has been reported by at least 2 instances to Ultimaker - I hope they'll look into it.
  27. used the repair option in slic3r, now slices perfectly in cura 4.3. Strange thing is, using cura engine in repetier host it sliced ok without repairing.
  28. I bought it several months ago and it is well maintained. Used for very short time. The quality of each products it prints are amazing and I am very satisfied with it. It comes everything with the original box. The printer is located at West Virginia, US. Asking for 2000 USD or best offer.You are welcome to DM me with any questions and concerns. Thank you so much!
