  1. Add a support blocker. It's going to be used as a Mesh Modifier. In the object list on the lower left of the screen it's called an Eraser. You can select it there. Move it and scale it to your satisfaction so it covers that whole end of the part. When scaling - turn off "Uniform Scaling" to make each axis independent. When you're happy with the location make sure that the support block Z is at 0. If you find that you need to rotate the block you should do that last. Select the support blocker. Select "Per Model Settings" (the tool above the support blocker tool). Select the

  2. If you can post the CAD model in STEP, Acis or Parasolid file format I can probably fix the model in my CAD software.

  3. well, you'll find the RAFT option under Build Plate Adhesion. Then you can change the settings that match your needs. I don't understand why you want the raft to be a few mm thick though. One layer should be enought.

  4. @gr5 thanks a lot for the hack Finally, there is a hack. If you have very simple geometry and you don't need any fill, you can model instead a cube in CAD. Then uncheck the "infill" and set both "top layers" and "top thickness" to zero. Voila - a box where the nozzle just does one pass.

  5. You could try to use "setQualityGroupByType" in the machine manager.

  6. What you need is a single stage with multiple views. That is also what the preview stage does; It basicly provides a way to switch between the views provided by plugins. So i'd use the "Show setup" and "Show results" to switch between two views. Since the view gets set back to default when you go to another stage, you also don't need to worry about hiding / showing what you were doing. If you do want that, you can also capture the "Event.ViewActivateEvent" and "Event.ViewDeactivateEvent" in the event loop of the view.

  7. @gr5 covered the Support Blocker / Mesh Modifier way to do it. I started wondering about making adjustments to STL files when you don't have the CAD model to work with. I drew a 1 x 1 x 1 block with a 1mm R fillet, brought it into Cura along with your SpeedBrake part, scaled it, placed it (the rotation is tough) and then sliced it. Nice. As shown - I scaled the fillet model 3 x 3 x 25. It then has the effect of a 3mm R fillet. Using the fillet and a support blocker as @gr5 suggests (with the overlaps set to 100% infill (or lots of walls)) and I think the part would be about as good a

  8. I personally have all the lights off on mine, they are in a front room that over looks open land so if they are on they light up the room for everyone to see walking along the foot paths. Plus i have little need for them to be on. But it would be nice if you could temp turn them on when viewing the camera, because i'll sometimes check in on a print when the rooms dark and with the lights off you can not see anything.

  9. You are right, the STL exists for this part, but as far as I know there is no public download link. So please ask your reseller, he should be able to provide you the link or STL file.

  10. Yes - cura literally slices your model into 2 dimensional slices by intersecting a plane with the triangles in the STL (an STL is a list of unordered triangles in 3 dimensional space). This gives you a bunch of unordered lines. Cura next tries to string those lines into loops (but there's tiny floating discrepencies due to rounding/precision errors). then it creates a "shell" path on the "solid side" of those loops (sometimes just inside, sometimes just outside if the loop describes a hole int hepart). So it always does 2 paths. Always. Hopefully some day Cura will get smarter
