  1. So we received a jigsaw puzzle from my wife's twin sister to work on while self isolating. She did advise us that she thought there was a piece missing, and sure enough there was. With that as a challenge, I photographed the missing piece of the puzzle, brought it into SolidWorks and vectorized it using "Sketch Picture", extruded it to 0.080" (2mm) sent it to Cura and in turn sent to my UM3. My wife then painted it to perfection and "Voila" the lighthouse was restored. Now I'm just looking for the next project.

  2. Hi, When the UM3 came to market with it's hot-swappable print-cores I was eagerly waiting for the first custom functionality through print cores, but it appears not much has happened yet. I finally had a good project to justify spending some time to build a vinyl cutter core. We took apart an off the shelf Roland Blade holder that turned out to have all kinds of interesting bits and pieces and combined it with an Ultimaker core using a printed adapter: The plan is to use it in combination with the SVGToolpathReader Cura plugin. It has some advantages over traditional roller plotters especially when dealing with sensitive materials. Of course this could also be extended to bring back the pen plotter. We are still working through some last issues (mostly involved with tricking the printer) and hope to have first cuts this week. Would anyone be interested in this solution? I am planning to release the models on Youmagine. Would anyone be interested in buying pre-assembled units if it is a plug-and-play solution? Regards, Joris

  3. In times of Corona and the call #stayathome, we thought we would become more self-sufficient to avoid shopping. So I had the following idea, where my Ultimaker S5 supported me a lot and, as always, provided me with very good services and results. You wouldn't believe how versatile such a 3D printer can be. But pictures say more than words: 1.) Set the bed temp to 27°C 2.) Put the bowl with the bread dough into the printer and let the dough rise for one hour 3.) Put the dough in a basket and let him again raise for some time: 4.) Final product after the S5 finished his work and before baking 5.) And here die final result after baking - perfect! I've always known that you can do a lot of things with a 3D printer, but I never thought it would be so versatile and can also be used for baking. 🙂 In this context, stay healthy and stay at home.

  4. Installing Cura 3.4.1 and Cura 4.5 side by side should be possible.

  5. Hi, my Cura builds are based on the most recent code from UM and you can install my builds alongside the UM releases. If you are interested you can find them at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0 Please read the README.md file there before using.

  6. I had this too, I use Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I deleted the QT shader cache by emtying the folder ~/.cache/qtshadercache and it showed all menus again. Seems like QT having hiccups from time to time... :-) Have fun! Mike
