  1. Past hour
  2. Well; after over 4 weeks of sharing the issues, having the Ultimaker Team acknowledge that they are aware of them, and yet still no clear path to resolve the issues nor any element of urgency evidenced; I give a thumbs up to “thopiekar” for entering this arena. Even my USA distributor has remained unable to resolve issues because they tell me that Ultimaker has still not gotten back to them; this after over 3 weeks. If not for the lack of communication from the Ultimaker Team within this forum I likely would not believe them and yet I do, and I also find myself feeling bad for them because they too are dealing with the exact same thing. This situation has gone from not good, to beyond unacceptable.
  4. Yesterday
  5. I have just recently bought a Creality CR10S printer and have been trying to print with Cura 4 but without success. Thinking it may be the printer, I acquired a bit of GCode for a whistle and it printed successfully. I then thought it was how I was setting parameters but I have tried all from Basic to Advanced, all without success. My problem is shown with the attached insert. I really can't get past this first layer on that model shown where the base infills begin to go haywire. I then tried a cube of 20 x 20 without a base and wall thicknesses of 2mm. The first two layers looked fine and then subsequent layers took on a very rough exterior and the top of the laying layer looked very much like a cake decoration with rolling scrolling and it was that rolling scrolling which appeared to roll over the sides. Hence the rough exterior. I tried printing with minimal settings and the selected profile set to default settings. No better results. Has anyone seen the same outcomes and can you enlighten.
  6. Well, no matter what, it won't go faster then it's "default" speed (which is the 25 mm/s). I don't know what to do. It is seriously anoying.
  7. Thanks for the file. I sliced it and looked at the gcode and the retractions are happening at 60mm/S and then I changed the retraction/prime speed to 40mm/S and the gcode changed as expected so I really don't know why you are seeing the behaviour that you are. This image shows the retraction speed in the gcode to be 2400mm/min = 40 mm/S which is what it should be.
  8. Access control is currently not possible, but UM is aware of it and is working on a solution.
  9. Hello, I have two Ultimaker 3 printers in use in a lab at my university. Recently, students who have not had training to use the printers have been trying to print for their projects, causing serious damage on several occasions. We cannot restrict physical access to the room and I cannot supervise the printers all day, every day. If we block off the USB ports, Is there any way of controlling who has access to the printers via the network? If not, how do other people control access to their printers in these sort of environments?
  10. It's literally default 0.3mm but with 60 mm/s retraction speed. CFFFP_Pi_Camera_2020_Adapter.3mf
  11. Welcome @Stratos, it's hard to give you an answer without seeing your settings so please save the project (File -> Save) and attach the resulting .3mf file to this thread. Thanks.
  12. Ghene, How did you sort this out?
  13. Hi i now this thread is old but as a solidworks user i have found the same issue and i also by accident found that solidedge does allow you to import a STL file and convert it to a step. the step file then was easy to modify in solidworks. hope that can help.
  14. Hi i had the same issue solid works. but solid edge does allow you import a stl file and convert it to step.
  15. Hey guys, hope you are all doing well. "First" time Ultimaker Cura user here. It is way simpler than what I was used (repetier host), but the default settings turned out way better than my heavily edited slic3r from repetier prints. But I came across 2 problems (I have to test one to make sure). So the one I would like to get rid of now is this. Changing the retraction speed has no effect on the actual retraction. It is still the same speed no matter if it is 40mm/s or 120mm/s, it is always slow compared to slic3r (where I had 60mm/s). So, how do I "repair" it? How can I make it retract faster (because now it kinda waits for it to retract)? Thanks in advance 😉. P.S.: I guess that I am using the latest Cura as I downloaded it on Saturday.
  16. I am happy with every solution, even if I have to rewrite from hand to daily like now...
  17. Yes, would save them in the settings storage and recover them on each load of a file. Within a settings window in the menu, they could get changed or reset. Think that might be something interesting for all commandline-based plugins (Blender and OpenSCAD), too.
  18. Would it not be easier to query the two or three options and execute them accordingly?
  19. Haha, no problem. I think I need to think about adding a window for overwriting the path to the executable and overwriting the executable name 😅
  20. That's it! I changed the "FreeCADcmd" to "FreeCADcmd-Daily" and now it works perfect! Thank you so much for your plugin and your support!!!
  21. Could be. I'm using the stable PPA. Does an "freecadcmd-daily" exist, too? The plugin is using the freecadcmd command line application to do the conversion from FCstd to STL automatically. If another name is used, then it won't be recognized.
  22. Hello. I've got the project of modify my printer (homemade with Duet wifi board) to an IDEX system. Your script is for what version of Cura ? Cura 3.x, 4.0, or BCN3D Cura. Sorry for my english I'm french.
  23. Heat the nozzle using the 'set temperature' setting. This will melt the material close to the head and soften the other material making it easier to get out with needle-nose pliers. You may have to also hit it with a heat gun too. This happened to me until I found out how to really get the print to stick to the buildplate. If the model cuts loose it will get dragged around creating a plug against the nozzle leaving the new material nowhere to go but up into the printhead.
  24. hmmm ... either my faith in my ability was too strong, or it is not because of the missing path... Can the reason be that the daili builds is started not with the command "freecad" but with "freecad-daily"???
  25. @UbuntuBirdy Personally, I prefer the second answer (modifying .bashrc): https://askubuntu.com/questions/60218/how-to-add-a-directory-to-the-path PS: The new version is on its way:
  26. I am using the FreeCAD PPA, but the daily builds... Well, I believe it would not be too difficult to add the binary directory, if I would know where to find the $PATH environment variable...
