  1. Thanks, but the amazing part of the work is done by @FormerLurker; my plugin is just the glue between Cura and his ArcWelder application.

  2. I believe I found a use for "Mesh Fixes | Remove all Holes". The back legs aren't on the build surface and require support. I randomly set it to 10% scale because it came in sized for a Jolly Green Giant. Sinking it into the build plate 2mm worked to flatten the bottom. I'd use a brim because the contact patches of the rear legs is pretty small for the lean angle they end up at before they merge into the rest.

  3. It could be that you created walls too thin to print - test that by setting your line width to 0.1mm temporarily to see what happens. But much more likely your model isn't manifold. Cura has an amazing plugin to test your model to see if something is wrong with it and can repair a very few of the many potential problems: In the upper right corner of Cura click "marketplace" and make sure you are on the "plugins" tab and install "Mesh Tools". Then restart Cura. Now right click on your model, choose "mesh tools" and first choose "check mesh", then "fix model normals

  4. @neotko just ist watched your video on cabling the Duet3D board in the UM2. What firmware are you using? Marlin ported or another one? You then use the Duet display with, not the UM2 built in anymore? Cura works with it? What do you have to configure? As my UM2 board on my 2nd printer is broken (see other post) I am thinking about how large the Duet3D mod is in comparison to repairing the UM2 board... ;-)

  5. Yeah, that's pretty much what happened to me. I don't know how you defined your printer, if you were using one of the ones built into Cura or if it was totally custom. My issue happened because I modified the files for one of the ones included with Cura and that caused an issue on the upgrade. If you are doing your own machine definition files, I strongly recommend you make your own name, unrelated to any that come with Cura, and keep a copy of the definition files outside of Cura in case you need to manually restore them after an update. I appreciate that this software was meant to work w

  6. Just to keep it clear for anyone who reads this later, it wasn't an issue with a profile. Those are easy enough to deal with by exporting and importing. This had to do with a custom machine definition, which cannot be exported or saved, and recreating it involves creating/editing JSON files in the program directory. Not trying to dig at you at all - I appreciate the help - it's just that this is a different issue and I don't want anyone to get confused about it. Thanks!
