  1. After some trial and error with sizes I think I have come up with what works best for me with building details on the UM3. Attached a couple photos of before and after to show the end result. For vertical extrusions out from the face of the building I use 0.6mm width due to my nozzle size, for internal thin cuts that indent into the model I use 0.4mm width and for horizontal indentations and extrusions I use a height of 0.2mm. Windows I usually cut in 0.5mm with a 0.6mm offset to show the window frames when possible and for the thin elements I extrude or cut in 0.2mm just to show t

  3. je n'en ai pas fait beaucoup. je ne dénonce pas mais c'est @lekid qui me la conseillé. je crois que c'était de l'apolloX buse 0.4 buse 240° plateau 85° peu ou pas de ventilation plutôt propre comme impression. je devrais m'y remettre quand je galère avec le PC.

  4. Hi folks, I'm looking to disable the auto reset that happens when you open the serial port on my UM2+. On the other printers I've got it was a simple case of removing the capacitor on the DTR line of the FTDI chip and then I can send commands to the printer and read back the status while printing from an SD card. Is there a similar capacitor on the UM2+ that can be removed? Cheers Jamie

  5. Really nice, excellent print! How did you end up with those numbers, was it purely trial and error, or did you use a certain formula as a starting point / rule of thumb?

  7. You could the new Backups plugin in Cura 3.4. It's not focused on sharing, but it works (login with the same account on multiple machines). As @nallath indicates, we are working on actual sharing behaviors as well.

  8. han pas bien de montrer du doigt @francois1 :p Pour l'ASA, oui j'ai imprimé du ApolloX de chez Formfutura. c'est un filament résistant aux UVs et aux intempéries. Il s'imprime très bien avec la buse à 235-240° et le bed à 80°. Il a également une Tg à quasiment 100° (donc presque comme l'ABS) Mais tu peux l'imprimer sans enclos contrairement à l'ABS :)

  9. I develop accessories that work with 2-way radios. Right now I'm planning on printing using Tough PLA as the results I am seeing now look pretty good. In fact, I printed some samples for a pull test we performed and the results match what you state in the spec sheet. The material is pretty impressive! Removing the supports by hand makes sense where it can be done. I will plan on doing that and then using warm water to remove the rest. I am currently printing the USS Enterprise-D with supports. I do have a question about what I am seeing during the suppo

  10. There is also now a Max Comb Distance With No Retract setting that when set to a non-zero value, all combing moves longer than that distance will use retraction (but not z-hop). So this gives you the ability to comb short distances and retract for long distance travel.

  11. Personally - but this is just my opinion - I don't think it will contaminate your oven and food if you let it cool down with open door, and wipe the oven afterwards. Cleaning aids you use to clean the oven, will contain worse chemicals. And the smoke and coal produced by baking meals will be a bigger health risk. The main risk of kitchen ovens is their poor temperature control: it may easily get too hot, or overshoot the set temp, and destroy the filament. So, using the UM glass bed as oven, or a dedicated filament dry box, or an electronically controlled laboratory oven (commonly

  12. C'est nickel ! J'ai coché l'option "Ne pas convertir les données de sortie STL en espace positif" dans SolidWorks et ça marche nickel depuis :-) au top ! Merci pour le coup de main

  13. The greater majority of the prints I do are for Architecture students. Around 70% of the prints are in White PLA. In the Fall 2017 semester that was about 35kg of white filament. Spring 2018 semester was around 50kg of White PLA, which is still approx. 70% of all prints.

  15. Honestly. it simply depends on how much you get into printing and goals. When I print for painting the piece, I will use any material color as color does not matter. If I am doing certain things that have transparency, I just order what I want to use. It also takes a while to find a filament you would like to use for specific purposes. And, that can be personal based on end result as well as local factors and of course, budget and availability of brands. All suggestions are good above. Experiment and just have fun ? That is what it is all about, yes?

  16. Hi gr5, I am sorry you thought I was not interested in your replies. Actually they have all been very useful. I have seen them through the emails notifications without logging in. I am sorry guys, I am just new in the community and I don't log in very often. However, I am trying to start printing soon. Unfortunately we only have few machines and I have to book it. So I have a little bit to wait. Therefore there is going to be some time between one access and the other, since I am not doing this full time. But I keep track of all the suggestions. Thank you very much all.

  17. This is a feature we're working on. Currently it's a bit tricky to share profiles between cura instances, which we hope to solve. As for the disapearing profiles, I can't really say why. Could you share your log files?

  18. Note that on an UM2 board, you have 3 digital pins available: Exp3 and Ext/IO (ports 13, 30 and 38 ). If you really need to go to analog ports, A0 is port 54 on the Mega (so M42 P54 S255 should work)
