  2. We want to learn about your Cura workflows! The Cura team is continuously working to improve the products and make your 3d printing workflow as smooth as possible. As part of this continual quest to improve the product, we would like to interview some users on their experience with the software and the rest of the Ultimaker platform. We are particularly looking for people who have expertise or something to say on these 3 topics: 1) Network connected printers 2) Advanced workflows going from CAD to Cura (Custom support, mesh modifiers, multi material assemblies )

  5. If you only installed one of them, I'd go ahead and add the second one as well. They are meant to be paired together, so if only one is installed, you could potentially run into a number of issues, ranging from things like Er65s to motion controller errors. Other common causes are things such as: * Front fan being impacted by debris https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011635039 * Partially clogged core https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011620800 * Debris in the feeder https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011652139-Cl

  7. We’re happy to announce that firmware 6.4 is released today for our Ultimaker S-line 3D printers. With it comes increased reliability and compatibility with our newest Ultimaker material; PETG. Release notes: Increased reliability – Improved deprime parameters will reduce the chances of getting certain errors due to material movement for the S-line Pro Bundle, known as ER34, ER35 and ER80. PETG compatibility – This firmware contains the print profile and allows printing with our newest go-to material; PETG. Reboot button on fatal errors – It is now possible to

  8. Yes, this is a good point. For designing parts, a lot of the rules for injection moulding apply here too, although not all. You can find online manuals on how to design plastic parts for injection moulding, from big companies like BASF, Bayer, DuPont, etc... How to design plastic threads is also explained in some of them. But this is more suitable for bigger sizes anyway, like plastic bottle lids. The company protolabs also has good manuals on designing for 3D-printing, I think. With a standard nozzle of 0.4mm, you can not print lines and corners narrower th

  9. When I am not printing, I store all my materials in a closed plastic box with a big bag of dessicant. Use one with blue/pink indicator, so you can see when it needs drying (=by putting it in an oven at low temp). Nylon is known to get too moist in only a couple of hours. It should be dried prior to printing, and then be printed from a dry-box. Idem for PVA. (I don't have a material station, so I don't know if that incorporates a dry-box functionality?) For PLA and PET: in real life I haven't seen too much degradation when sitting in the open, although theoretically they

  10. Received my printer two weeks ago, everything in the package (touchscreen, heatbed). Assembled it, did the leveling stuff and printed the rocket. One thing I noticed was the power plug. It’s not very tight and depending on the rotation the printer turns off, but I got used to this. As everybody said it is quite slow but the print of the rocket was good at all. I updated the software described by @foo bar. I thought a good idea is to print the wide known calibration cube (Thingiverse) to check the dimensions. Very soon i noticed a big layer shift. I thightened the belts to fix it, the

  13. Well, he's a know it all, because he worked for ultimaker on Cura. In case that isn't enough, i can confirm that he's right. We never had a fuzzy skin on top. The arguments for that can be found in this ticket: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/1419. I don't know who told you that you need to go back to 3.6, but that person is simply wrong.

  14. @prafersno you may not be aware but @ahoeben is one of the main contributors to Cura. I don't know that he "knows it all" but he probably knows 99.99% of it. I listen when he speaks, and so I learn. Reading back through this thread, I think his responses were concise and to the point and explained why there was no "top fuzzy". As for myself, I have been described as having a "wide skillset". I suppose that is the same as "Jack of all Trades and Master of None", but I'm good with that. I do appreciate a good workaround and so kudos to you for finding a workable workaround that

  15. Every print core is tested by printing a particular calibration print designed to test the core itself. They can detect things like the sensor being inaccurate, heater not working, other electronic errors, clogged or partially clogged nozzle, leaks, and probably more. If there were no indications that the core was used that wold be a red flag.

  22. I had Cura and MS 3DBuilder check it @Smithy and it appears to be OK. As Smithy says, you have to be careful with models from Sketchup. You didn't mention your printer. Sometimes the SD cards can get corrupted and the end of a gcode file gets copied to the corrupt area. The file will be partially printed. You can open the file that is on the SD card using a text editor. Scroll down to the end and you should see the settings section. If you don't see that then the file is likely bad on the SD card. You can try re-formatting the card. It's always scary to print som

  23. Personally I don't use it, but it should be possible to create your own material profiles in Cura and I think they are also synchronized to the printer. But I am not sure if the synchronization of custom profiles is already working, I just know it was planned and not sure if it was also planned for UM3. But what's the problem to use just a generic profile when loading a filament? I mean the profile you select on the printer is just that the printer knows which temperature is used for the initial loading/exturding. Everything else comes later from Cura. So is really doesn't matter w

  24. But at that point it is an explicit action by you, right? The point is that it having printers that can go above 360 are pretty rare. 99%> of the machines simply can't reach those temperatures and if they did, it would cause safety issues. To give a bit more information about this; We have a security company doing regular audits for our software. This was one of the things that they noticed. They came up with the following scenario: If a malcious actor makes a project file / profile with extreme high temperatures, they could use that to cause a lot of damage to the machine (or e

  26. Maybe you are partly right then, but need to focus on Octoprint instead of the printer. Maybe octolapse is to blame (causes more problems to be honest). Edit: Well, problem solved! I disabled Octolapse and it does not go to the center everytime. This it is indeed for the timelapse (stop motion), to keep the printer head from moving in the timelapse video. Sorry that I didnt mention the use of Octoprint before, maybe it could saved us some discussions. Anyways, many thanks for the assistance!!

  27. A coworker asked if things for his H0-scale trains can be 3D-printed. I made some demo parts for him. Came out better than I expected, the bridge is printed with a new brand that I never used before, so not that nice, but the other ones turned out good. (Why is this upside down 🤔, on my computer it’s right)

  28. Though I am not the creator of the "magic", my guess is it is as follows: The algorithm takes 3 consecutive points (that are part of an extruding move) and fits a circular arc to them. If an arc is found, it compares the arc to the two linear sections and checks the difference. If the difference is smaller than what is specified in the settings, (and some additional conditions are also met), the arc segment is accepted. Then I am guessing the next point is checked to be on the same curve. If it is not, then a new section of 3 consecutive point is taken.

  32. Hi @Gero, great question! So great, we actually covered it in a support article 🙂 The article might be best summarised using the last paragraph: "Unless you require the specific chemical resistance of CPE, it is very likely that you would prefer to use PETG instead. You will benefit from improved printability, while retaining or exceeding the mechanical properties of the printed part." Make sure to read the article if you want to know more!

  33. Not quite. This is the general release thread for Cura 4.9, not specifically for issues with Cura on Windows 7. You are welcome to keep discussing with others the issues you are seeing, but please be mindful that this thread is open to all Cura users, regardless of if they are using Windows, Mac, or Linux. The Cura developers recommend reporting issues on the GitHub for Cura, which allows them to get additional information from you and better help resolve issues: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues

  35. I'm working on a new plugin that adds a simple measuring aid to Cura: In its current incarnation, the tool lets you pick (and drag) two points and shows the distance between these points. A test-version can be downloaded here: MeasureTool Download the file and drop it onto the buildplate in Cura as if you were opening a 3d model. Then restart Cura as instructed. The plugin is now available in the Marketplace.

  37. Also das Modul macht dem Anschluß nichts, das braucht nicht viel Strom, regelt nur die Spannung runter. Aber der Lüfter sollte nicht mehr benötigen als der Anschluss her gibt. Wieviel der liefern kann weiß ich nicht, aber da wäre ich vorsichtig. Es gab auch schon User, die haben einen Raspberry irgendwo auf 5V gehängt und sich dann das Board damit geschossen. Ich würde es persönlich nicht ans Board hängen, weil du hast damit ja auch absolut keinen Vorteil, der Lüfter würde sowieso immer laufen. D.h. du kannst dir die Spannung gleich direkt von der Buchse holen wo das Netzteil anges

  40. There have been a couple of people that have come in here with questions about setting up Cura for a paste extruding machine. If you do a search of the forum, those posts should come up. Maybe a PM would be in order to ask them a question directly. Personally I don't know anything about it. In regards to pellet extrusion, those are generally larger machines that put out a lot of material. As a retired old fart and hobbyist I have no need to FDM print a house or boat. Here is an example of one poster's pellet extruder in this thread. It's a self-built printer, it takes up a lot o

  41. "bridging" in 3d printing... If you are printing a wall with a door or window opening - when you get to the top of the door/window - it "bridges" across the top. It's when it is printing a layer where it bridges from one wall to the other to cover up some hole below. You aren't doing that in your "bridging" photo. So I'm confused. Maybe you are talking about "stringing" which is when the printer prints but you don't want it to and you get strings/threads.

  42. "IMHO it was a really bad decision to set a hard limit on the nozzle temp. HT printers are getting more and more common these days and that 365°C limit is kind of arbitrary. IF one normal printer (without a reasonable FW limit set) would be operated at 350°C or 360°C doesn't matter. It would probably be dangerous to the same extent in both scenarios." "(without a reasonable FW limit set)" That requires an assumption that isn't in evidence. The word "reasonable" itself is subjective. It appears you have found a niche for yourself working with, and developing definitions for, High Te

  43. Wenn es sich um ein UM2 handelt, das alt genug ist, verfügt es über einen Ersatzkanal für einen zweiten Extruder. Wenn Sie nett fragen, erstellt @tinkergnome möglicherweise eine benutzerdefinierte Version der Firmware für Sie, sodass Sie die Z-Achse in den Ersatz-Extruderanschluss stecken können. Keine spezielle Verkabelung erforderlich.

  44. I played around with this a bit and I think you can change colors at a layer. It won't be fancy like if there were two models but it would change extruders. Place a support blocker to cover the model and then adjust the Z to the layer you want the color change. Set the Overlap Settings to Cutting Mesh. Set the model to one extruder and the Support Blocker to the other extruder. I assume you will need a purge tower. If there is support going up past the lower part of the model, up to the upper part of the model, you need to make a decision on which extruder to use for the support.

  45. Hello, it is possible that the collet is the problem. Alternatively to ordering a new collet / tube, your reseller might have been able to ship you a new one if your collet is not working properly. It has 4 metal teeth on the inside which bite into the bowden tube and keep it in place, if they are bent or missing they have less grip and its possible they can't hold the bowden tube in place. When your collet is fine, but something else created so much force that it pushed your bowden tube out of the collet you could shorten the bowden tube because the area where the collets previou

  46. It looks like the underextrusion is happening on layer change and you have very thin walls. So: Make sure retract at layer change is unchecked. Make sure enable coasting is unchecked Do you have "spiralize outer contour" checked? If so uncheck that as well.

  47. Hi @joel_peppa_pig, thank you for your comment and welcome to the community! If you are curious about the difference between our printers we have comparison sheets on our product pages. What separates Ultimaker from a lot of other brands is that we not only develop a printer, but also our own software (Ultimaker Cura) and the largest material portfolio out there. This consists of various Ultimaker materials, but even more materials from our ecosystem partners for which print profiles are developed so you can load the material, load the print profile and no further tweaking is required to

  48. Well, any further discussion would only be speculation, and that probably won't lead to anything. Something could easily become more lucrative if the investment would be significantly less to develop. Time will tell. Ok, well, I'm glad I could help. ... I guess? 😉
