    I was asked to implement the Schwarz P and Schwarz D TPMS infill patterns by a user who wishes to compare their properties with the already implemented Gyroid pattern. This I have just done and so I'm just letting people know in case anyone wants to give them a go. This is Schwarz P ("Primitive") and I don't think it is so good for general infill as it requires a lot of travels because each layer consists of a bunch of closed loops. This is Schwarz D ("Diamond") and, like Gyroid, each layer consists of wavy lines so it requires fewer travels. Both of these patterns have shallow slopes and so to get the best visual quality they should be printed using thin layers and fat lines (i.e. 0.1mm and 200% infill flow). A known issue is that the Connect Infill Lines setting doesn't work very consistently with these patterns. More work required, there. As ever, my Cura builds can be found at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0 Please read the README.md file there. For more info on TPMSs, a good page is http://facstaff.susqu.edu/brakke/evolver/examples/periodic/periodic.html All feedback is welcome!

    IMHO, the best option is to use Surface Mode : Surface. For this to work properly, you have to design your STL so that the text is not a solid extrusion (i.e. with a line width of 0.4mm, where each character is a closed figure), but instead a mere surface (with no width, where each character is a path). What this implies, is that you'll probably have to draw the characters yourself, and not use typefaces.

    Bedankt voor je reactie. Ik zal je zo een direct message sturen met wat instructies hoe je mogelijk je printer weer aan de praat kunt krijgen.

    Das wird schwierig werden, da etliche Parameter von diversen anderen Konstellationen vererbt werden. D.h. dein Druckerprofil gibt gewisse Dinge vor, dann der Printcore, das Material und das Druckprofil. Beim Wechsel von einem der Dinge, werden die Parameter neu gesetzt bzw. wird hinterfragt ob das geschehen soll. Mein Tipp so wie DivingDuck schon geschrieben hat, vergiss die Profile und speichere die Projektdateien ab. Wenn du dann etwas drucken möchtest, dann einfach die passende Projektdatei laden, das Objekt entfernen und das neue STL laden. Du kannst sogar vor dem Speichern schon das Objekt entfernen, dann hast du ein leeres Projekt und all die Settings die du brauchst. Die Lösung mit den Projektdateien ist auch "Upgrade-Sicher", bei Profilen kann es immer wieder vorkommen, dass die nachher nicht mehr funktionieren.

    Da es nicht DAS eine passende Druckprofil als Eierlegendewollmilchsau für jedes Druckmodel gibt - wie wäre es denn mit Speichern als Projektdatei für jedes Model? Da ist dann alles drin; vom Model bis zu allen Einstellungen. Und was das Beste daran ist, es funktioniert als einzige mir bekannte Variante auch über mehrere Curaversionen einigermaßen gut. Gruß, DD

    Hi @Elfonerio, We should release a new firmware today for the Ultimaker S5 and the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle. This means that if you already own an Ultimaker Pro Bundle, you will be able to start using it. If you ordered one, but haven't received it yet, it means it is going to be shipped to you. Practical information that might concern you; If you own or receive an Ultimaker S5 (Pro Bundle) it's good to check what firmware it is running on. If it is 'old' firmware, such as 5.0.X or 5.1.X, it must be updated via the stepping stone version. This is not new information per se, but I figured it's worth stressing again. Specific instructions on how to update your machine, and the files you need, can be found on this page: https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/52601-update-the-ultimaker-s5-firmware Note: It will be updated accordingly when the firmware has been released. Thank you for your time and patience, have a good day.

    Bonjour, Je rencontrais le même problème hier avec ma CR-X. J'ai mis les paramètres suivants et je n'ai plus eu de décalage ni ne mélange des couleurs (le paramètre le plus important est wipe inactive nozzle, c'est lui qui règle le problème de décalage). Bonne journée

    To make our Raise3D Pro2 Dual printers work with Cura I ended up copying and modifying the Raise3D N2 definitions to create a custom printer type (files attached). To use them, unzip the attached zip file into your "C:\Program Files\Ultimake Cura 4.3\resources\definitions" directory (assuming Windows) and hopefully Cura will offer it as a printer option after you restart. I updated the build plate dimensions in the new definition, but the main fix involved updating the extruders' "steps per unit" setting in the "machine start g-code" section, which went from E140 to E6640. The new value is based on the number I found in the printer's menus. Please note: This definition is for the regular Pro2 Dual, not the "Plus" model. I suspect it would work on both though. I have used this definition to make several prints, but your mileage may vary. (i.e., it's not an official solution) If you want to be extra cautious, you can confirm that your printer uses the same "steps per unit=6640" before attempting a print. It's located under "Home > Settings (gear icon) > Machine > More Settings > Hardware > Steps Per Unit > E Steps Per Unit". If you end up trying it can you reply back and let us know if it works for you? raise3D_Pro2_dual.custom.def.zip
