    Do you have a heat gun or soldering iron you can apply to the plastic? At best, all the filament around your printhead is acting as a heat sink and and causing the error; at worst your heater and/or temperature sensor may be damaged (I'm not familiar with the Tevo) and the error is there to make sure you don't have thermal runaway. Best bet is to apply an external heat source and pull material away with pliers or similar.

    Yes there is. cura.CuraApplication subclasses Um.Application. To oversimplify: CuraApplication has all of the functionality of Application and more.

    I unpublished the ABS profile yesterday, so the notification will go away now... This bug will be fixed in the next release.

    Hi @Frolic, welcome to the community! In Cura is a setting called Support distance, you can use it to alter the distance between your support and your model. Perhaps this setting holds the key to both of your problems. Let us know how it goes!

    Sorry @maht, but your answer is for people who know what to do with this information - for people like me, it is only nerd things... @ahoeben - your plugin is awesome, but it does not fix (temporary) this issue...

    I'm also running into this, but with Ultimaker ABS. I do not own an Ultimaker machine, but Cura still has a little red notification by the marketplace button to get me to update Ultimaker ABS. Trying to update it gets me stuck in the infinite loop, and I don't know how else to make the notification go away.

    Hi, This is my very first post here. I made the new care reaction of facebook. STL files for 3d printing. Can be used as tabletops, paperweight, toy and also as a gift for a loved one. ☺️ https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/games-toys/toys/facebook-care-emoji

    Within the next hour a 20200525 release for Windows-64 should be on Dropbox. It heeds the user-defined z-seam hint position when outputting surface mode lines. YMMV.

    Is this what you are after, allways starts the new layer at the start of the same line. I sliced this with Burtoogle's cura build https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0&lst=

    The red here visualises overhang that would normally need support. But because the bottom layer touches the buildplate, no support is needed.

    There is something weird with the model. Can you check the .stl in a program like Meshmixer, -> Analysis -> Inspector and see if something shows up. Cura is creating large triangels towards the bed, filling up the model.

    Hello, there are a missing feature basical to avoid warping with ABS, multiple layers of brim option, other slicers can do it but Cura with "thousand" of options no, please, add this feature, with 4 or 5 layers of brim and ABS warping gone totally with Big pieces. Thank you.

    However, looking at the code in CuraEngine, it appears that in surface mode the lines in each layer can either be closed loops (aka polygons) or they can just be lines that don't join up. The polygons will be printed taking into account the z-seam position but it appears that the lines ignore the z-seam position. Perhaps that could be changed, although it's not immediately obvious what the right strategy would be.

    If you go to layer view, select the line type color scheme and enable travel lines, you can see where retraction happens. Dark blue lines are unretracted, light blue is retracted.

    I made a little utility which plots the fan speed versus layers from a GCode file. With the model in the picture (Bridge.png) Cura "bounces" the fan speed after the bridge completes (a bit like you might see in an underdamped system). Y axis = fan speed (%) X axis = Layer number Yellow trace = fan speed % Blue trace = averaged fan speed It doesn't appear to affect print quality but probably it shouldn't be there. Or if it should, why? (Printer UM2 with Olsson block, WIN 10) .STL attached Slice_Test_46.gcode

    No, not while loading a file. But - as @loociano said - you can split the model into separate objects and delete the unwanted parts. This can be done with third party software (like Blender or Meshmixer) or even with Cura, if you install the "Mesh Tools" plugin from the marketplace.

    Install the Plugin : Printer settings Then in the section Printer settings uncheck the parameter : Wait for Build Plate Heatup

    "Slicing Tolerance" is set to "Exclusive", this prevents the union in this case. The default for this setting is "Middle". I dunno how many other options it interferes with - I guess it's in the "Experimental" section for a reason...

    Would it be possible to install S5 feeders instead of bondtech (without tinkering with E-steps)? I wonder if the filament sensor would also work, as the wiring is present, the firmware 5.2.11 is identical to the corresponding firmware of the S5 and the temperature graph of cura connect contains two extra feeds named sensor0 and sensor1?

    Hi everyone, Thanks for your help. The project is on hold for now (clients!) so it might not be the near future, but I'll let you know how I get on if it proceeds. All good information for future reference anyway. I appreciate your input.

    Hi robobartz, I disagree. The Ultimaker printers are -at least since the UM2- equipped with an automatic belt tensioner for the long belts, which is integrated in the sliding blocks. If the belt gets loose at the opposite side (lower at front/back belt, higher at side belts), there is an easy way to tighten them again, as shown in the following video, provided by @fbrc8-erin: Regards

    Ok I think I have simplify the source code and based on your recommendation switched to the solution of storing the support size value in Preference "customsupportcylinder/s_size" CustomSupportCylinder on Github

    As I said few posts before, saving as .stl is more than enough for me. Thank you for your efforts.

    Yep ! I think the dev are fighting with dependencies in the program and a lack of CPU...and some lean/agile training I 'll do the suggested modification of the config file, thanks. On my side , i'll fighting with my boss ... he'll ask me why i choose this buggy expensive stuff... Regards.

    Correct that has proven to be a temporary fix for me as well. What does happen is it will eventually go black again and we go back and do it over and over after each print because at some point in long prints it blacks out again. Hopefully they get this figured out.

    I think you are talking about what is commonly referred to as "elephant's foot". See the "Initial Layer Horizontal Expansion" setting: https://github.com/Ghostkeeper/SettingsGuide/blob/master/resources/articles/shell/xy_offset_layer_0.md

    I have 2 Ultimaker3 and each one has a different problem with support structure. Problem 1: The first Ultimaker3 has the Problem that there is always a little gap between the support structure an the model. I tried to print a ball and because auf this problem the ball was deformed where the support structure should have been supporting. Problem2: The second Ultimaker3 has the Problem that the support structure merges with the print. At some points that I can see through the plate I printed and it leaves holes where the support structure was. I hope somebody has a solution for my problems. Kind regards Frolic.

    Well what do I do about the nozzle diving into the prime blob just before it goes to print the model and drags it along screwing up my first layer?

    I'm finding that a different support angle is required to avoid supports depending on if the overhang is straight or curved. As an example, I have a 45 degree overhang which I have sweep along a straight line and along an arc in FreeCAD, as seen here: If I slice it with support overhang angle set to 46, I get this: The straight sweep does not get a support while the arc sweep does. The cross section is the same on both. I have to raise support overhang angle to 48 to avoid the support. This seems wrong to me. Is there a setting I'm missing? Am I wrong or is this a bug? BTW, I'm running Cura 4.6.1 on Windows 10. Attached are the STL file and the FreeCAD project (zipped) to reproduce it. Thanks support test.stl support test FCStd.zip

    Your block simply isn't screwed in far enough into your hot end isolator (the thing with the holes). If it doesn't want to go any further it's because you have dirt in your threads most likely. Try heating the block up and tightening again. The isolator should be able to screw in all the way until it touches the block.

    Je vois sur le site du fabricant une vitesse d'impression pour imprimante avec bowden entre 15 et 30 mm/s, donc à 30 tu es dans la fenêtre haute. Le phénomène ressemble à du pillowing (https://support.3dverkstan.se/article/23-a-visual-ultimaker-troubleshooting-guide#pillowing). As-tu reslicé ou utilises-tu toujours le même gcode ? As-tu changé le % d'Infill ?

    It appears (at least on Mac), the printhead settings are still stuck at -20 and -10. Any ideas how to fix it?

    Is Ultimaker planning to release a scaled down version of the Air Manager for the S3 printer? Or even a smaller material station? I would think you could get 4 spools into the smaller S3 footprint.

    oh man, if i would have had this months ago it would have saved me a lot of time. anyway, i am using similar settings and got Cura to work and love it other than the larger than actual print size. used your fix and now my prints are the exact size they should be which i have been trying to fix for months, thanks for sharing! took some searching but the X3gwriter.py file is located at: C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\cura\4.4\plugins\X3GWriter\X3GWriter for me on windows 10. ended up having to search through the whole comp to find it. hope this helps someone else save some time.

    Thanks to your write up, I was able to get x3g files written! I'm on Windows 10 and used Notepad to edit the py file. Note, I had to make sure that when I commented out the "return machine if machine..." line the '#' symbol was lined up with other lines that were being commented out, and got the text of the line lined up with other such lines. You helped a ton, kind human.

    you say to go thru the marketplace button in Cura and search in the marketplace, but I don't see an option to search for anything. Did something change?

    The most reliable way of creating a curapackage is to create an account at https://contribute.ultimaker.com That is the portal to submit a plugin to the Marketplace, and its backend actually creates the curapackage from your sources (which you upload as a zip) and some metadata you fill in to a form. Before you "submit" the package for inclusion in the Marketplace, you can download and test your curapackage.

    Version 1.0


    This is a well known vase printed in Blue Lagoon from Faberdashery (very nice). It's printed with my Ultimaker 2 modified with the Olsson Block and a 1mm nozzle from www.3dSolex.com. Printed in Spiralize mode with a 1mm wall, and 0.5mm layers! It's very fast, around 1h25 to print at full height (200mm). Watch the video! I'll do a complete review soon on this nozzle
