  1. I created many plugins for Cura, and also created BLACKBELT Cura to support belt-style printers. What would you like to customize?

  2. Hi there Roli? While it's clear that you are frustrated, I'm not sure if this tone of voice really helps in any way. I don't think the support people are going to be more willing to help you if you shame them or call them hobbyist. Frankly one could ask himself how professional it is to use those qualifications here in a professional public forum. We are all here to help out community and everybody is doing their best I think. We do indeed test our firmware (for at least 2 whole weeks) before we ship it. We test about 30 different abort flows alone and 200+ flows in total *every* single rele

  3. Hi Greg, I don't tell the supporters as hobbyists, but the firmware team and this is not an afront to this guys but the really truth. It couldn't be, that every firmware get a half step forward and several steps back. Not for a machine with this price. Every China hobby machine works proper than the actual S5 I think. And if I read in every firmware thread where a lot of problems where put in that the "Team Ultimaker" says that there will make a big effort for each new firmware for testing: Sorry, this is ridiculous. In every new firmware 1000 things doesn't work which worked be

  4. The marketplace version of ApolloX doesnt support Material station sadly. If you need it for the UMS5 pro bundle then download the material profile from github where I manage several profiles of FormFutura materials I use for my prints https://github.com/flyinggorilla/ultimaker-s5

  5. I obviously can't help you with the exact modifications, but i can help out in answering any questions about the code you might have. That being said; you could try @ahoeben

  6. This is great. I'll give it a try. This forum is hands down the most productive one I visit, and threads like this are why. Cheers John

  7. I just plug my ACR122U directly into the windows PC. Windows recognises it as a smartcard reader and Python then interfaces with it directly, no Pi needed. This is correct, you must have the material installed in Cura first if using the GUID. (or for PolyWood I created a new Material which generates a new one) The GUI searches for all installed materials, including custom materials. If you use the main function from the command line, technically you could give it whatever GUID you like, but if it's not in the printer I imagine nothing would happen. I find it best to bac

  8. Possible but a huge pain in the neck to do it. You use the feature "per model settings". Basic steps: 1) Set the majority infill for your model (the infill that is more common). If it's half and half then pick either 20% or 40%. 2) Add a cube to the build plate. Select it by clicking. Click "per model settings" icon on left edge. It prompts for mesh type. You can use normal I think but definitely you can use "modify settings for infill of other models". Set the minority infill in the settings (e.g. 20% or 40$). Consider removing all other infill settings from the mesh

  9. It is the same as PLA, so I would not use it for a lamp. https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/360010175560/TDS_Tough_PLA_RB-en.pdf

  10. Thanks for the quick reply... wow, 0.06 at 30 / 70 your prints must take forever to drop out.

  11. @gandy @jomeier No problem, I put the link below. Still had some things I wanted to fix before uploading which are done now. Note it doesn't detect directories automatically for Mac or Linux yet, but can detect Cura for Windows just fine. For Mac/Linux, just give it the file paths. The script should work on a Pi too, but better to use command line for that rather than GUI. https://github.com/DA-Osborne/Spool-Maker @gandy A cura plugin would definitely make it easier to match up Materials. Looks like Cura has a page dedicated for making plugins that work within Cura I ne

  12. I'm going to answer my own question about the NFC improvements and the Material Station. Prior to 5.8.2, getting the Material Station to read NFC codes was a real pain. It could take 8-10 tries to get it to work and it seldom worked the first time. I did a lot of loading and unloading with some filaments that were in the 8-10-try category this evening to test the improvements, and even added a filament the station hadn't seen before. Everything worked the first time.

  13. >use the support blocker ( 6th icon on the left side missing a tool tip ) to generate a generic cube model OR add a model of your own for custom shapes > select the model you just placed > select Per Model Settings ( 5th icon down on left side also missing tool tip ) > change the mesh type to "Modify Settings For Overlaps" > hit the "select settings" button and add the "infill density" option > set the infill density as required ( in my case I needed 100% infill for a section of my model ) > move the model/mesh to where you need it.

  14. Is it so hard to implement that feature???

  15. Are there any updates on thing topic? We are using a UM S5 and need to prevent people from accessing the Eventlog, Cura Connect etc. via the web UI. A simple password protection would do the job for us. Does anyone have a simple solution?

  16. You could try using the 'line type' color scheme in preview mode instead.

  17. This is a Tractrix horn that I constructed with Fusion 360 (imported calculated data) and printed with Cura on my UM3. At the back side of the horn a tweeter is going to be mounted and the whole stuff will become part of a stereo audio system (I made two of them for a friend of mine who is an audio fanatic). Material: Ice PLA, colour "Glamorous Gold", printed with 0.8 nozzle and some PVA support.

  19. Yes. There is a feature that allows you to change the infill density on part of your print, it's called infill mesh. Her's a video tutorial by @DidierKlein:
