  1. I didn't complain, I asked a question... : ) And I can imagine that a full proof script is difficult, but I think a partly working work around could be quite helpfull already
  2. Adding the printer works...! But that shouldn't stop me from dropping by in all offices.... Thanks...!
  3. can't find the cache files on my mac how do you mean 'exactly' adding a printer with the same def files...?! add printer, close cura, copy paste definition json in the new printer definition json...?! cheers / joris
  4. Hi, I want for an experiment slice something with 4 extruders. I managed to change the definitions json and added the necessary exruders json files and Cura starts OK. I can chenge the number of extruders in the machine settings, but I don't see the 3rd and 4th extruder in the GUI/menu on the right. I also don't see in in the right mouse button menu. Is this a [known?] bug or am I missing something... some snippets of the definitions json I changed: "machine_extruder_trains": { "0": "ultimaker_original_dual_1st", "1": "ultimaker_original_dual_2nd", "2": "ultimaker_original_dual_3rd", "3": "ultimaker_original_dual_4th" }, cheers / joris
  5. Thats it, thanks also for the shortcut in the help meu. cheers / joris
  6. Any ideas where the location could be on a Mac...?! changed and added some machines, but cannot find any .cfg in the user/.cura folder with the date of today and/or a name that I would recognize. [there are older cfg files, but not from today] cheers / joris
  7. tried to rename to home_offset, but then i think more is renamed the error now is: enquecommand_P is not declared in this scope you can download 'my' firmware at: https://drive.google.com/a/redpixel.nl/file/d/0B0AtBR2SVS-VZFlkMFJfX1BmNnM/view?usp=sharing
  8. I use the githuib.com/marlinfirmware since that has the M163 included [which I need...] I seen something like set_home_offset and home_offset, maybe it is a different name?!
  9. almost working I gues, just don't understand where to copy/paste these lines: static void lcd_init_z_adjustment(); static void lcd_prepare_info_z(); static void lcd_prepare_adjust_z(); (placed them in ultralcd.h but have no idea why i did that : ) and I get an error: 'add_homeing' was not declared in this scope.....?! did I miss something...?! cheers / joris
  10. I use Neotko style as well, sort of... I prefer the name of the object first and version as well Many times I copy all files on the sd card to the folder called "old" so you can find the current files faster. Important is also that the names are not so long, when working with octoprint in the 8.3 format when printing from SD. That means extension on .g [instead of .gcode] When I resume prints I use the same name but ending on r1.g, r2.g etc... And for production on multiple different machine include machine name [uMO, UM2] and nozzle size [without a dot]. Never included PLA in filename since that is my default, maybe add material when it is different. cheers / joris
  11. just downloaded fresh files from github and now only warnings, so seems to compile.... cheers / joris
  12. Hi, I managed to install all the packages and dependecies for compiling the cura engine on mac OS 10.9.5 [woohoo!!], but when compiling i get an error which is source related I think: [ 7%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/_CuraEngine.dir/src/PrimeTower.cpp.o /werk/github/CuraEngine/src/PrimeTower.cpp:54:40: error: variable-sized object may not be initialized int max_object_height_per_extruder[extruder_count] = { -1 }; // unitialize all as -1 ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1 error generated. make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/_CuraEngine.dir/src/PrimeTower.cpp.o] Error 1 make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/_CuraEngine.dir/all] Error 2 make: *** [all] Error 2 any directions how to solve this...?! cheers / joris
  13. [edit: i did change the id and name in the json and then the machine shows up in the add printer list, still want to know where the added printer json file is [or is that referred to this json file?!] Where is that list of json files on a mac...?! I see a list in contents/resources/cura/resources/machines but when I duplicate and rename a pirnter there, it doesn't show more printers... I did add 2 other machines, but don't know where the json file is to edit the nozzle size [interesting is that the wall tooltip refer to the nozzle size but that value is nowhere viewable....] cheers / joris
  14. Yes and no... The overlap will 'weld' the object together, with pla it works really well, but the adhesion between layers and also between parts is many times not as strong as the layer. Especially with other materials [ABS, PC] or fiber inserted materials [markforged] you would like to see a more integrated layering strategy. cheers / joris [this is the 3rd time I challenge students from TUDelft to print larger by combining multiple fast/accurate XY frames with a slow XYZ frame to speed up production, but keep de resolution. Ther whole project is only 6(!!) weeks. See also the project form 2 years ago: http://kamermaker2013.weblog.tudelft.nl/]
  15. you can enable the 'bed temperature' option in the 'preferences' under 'machine'... cheers \ joris
  16. Hi, You could use a plugin in Cura, don't know if this worked, but an intern tried this a year ago: other option is to use regular expressions in a better text editor: find: G0 (.*) replace: yourcode G0 /1 [btw, i am not a programmer, but i really like google and copy/paste...] cheers \ joris #Name: Powder Printing #Info: Switch off fan power during travel moves #Help: PowderPrinting #Depend: GCode #Type: postprocess #Param: fanpowermin(int:) Fan Power Min(0-255) #Param: fanpowermax(int:) Fan Power Max(0-255) ## Written by Tom Kerckhaert, based on TweakAtZ by Steven Morlock ## Special Thanks to Joris van Tubergen ## This script is licensed under the Creative Commons - Attribution - Share Alike (CC BY-SA) terms # Uses - Switch off fan power during travel moves # TODO: # Get rid of the unnecessary fan on / off between two G moves # Fan power variables do not work yet import re def getValue(line, key, default = None): if not key in line or (';' in line and line.find(key) > line.find(';')): return default subPart = line[line.find(key) + 1:] m = re.search('^[0-9]+\.?[0-9]*', subPart) if m == None: return default try: return float(m.group(0)) except: return default with open(filename, "r") as f: lines = f.readlines() with open(filename, "w") as f: for line in lines: if getValue(line, 'G', None) == 0: f.write("; Powder Plugin\n") f.write("M106 S0\n") f.write(line) f.write("M106 S255\n") f.write("; Plugin: End\n") f.write(line) if getValue(line, 'G', None) == 1: x = getValue(line, 'X', dx) y = getValue(line, 'Y', dy) z = getValue(line, 'Z', dz) e = getValue(line, 'E', e) f = getValue(line, 'F', f) line = 'G1 ' if dx != x: line += 'X%f ' % x if dy != y: line += 'Y%f ' % y if dz != z: line += 'Z%f ' % z if df != f: line += 'F%f ' % f line += '\n' # if comment is the extruder movements before and after the print, remove that line g.write(line)
  17. solution could be to turn of all fix horrible checkboxes in expert mode... [Or in sketchup you should orient all faces the same direction, but that is more technical...] cheers \ joris
  18. sometimes it helps that when first layer is a bit cloder to the bed or push the bed a little bit up with your finger to make it stick better, i normally do that in the corners where the warping starts. When the first layer is perfect, warping shouldn't happen with pla cheers \ joris
  19. There is only one elephant printed [as far as I know], the names are pretty small... cheers joris
  20. Hey hey, Just a quick post, I thought i will share it here as well. Yesterday I mounted succesfully an UM2 on the z-unlimited. You only need to make a hole in the backpanel [which yu don't see when you convert back to normal!!]. http://www.rooiejoris.nl/ http://www.facebook.com/europerminutedesign Official kickstart update: Last weeks have been very busy using the Z-Unlimited installations for the follow-up of Renzo Martens’ project ‘http://www.rooiejoris.nl/chocolat’. From May 2th these life sized chocolate sculptures will be exhibited at http://www.fonswelters.nl in Amsterdam and at http://www.kw-berlin.de. Nevertheless we found some spare time in between to test drive an UM2 along the rail. And it works! The conversion on the UM2 is even easier than the original. But… also a little bit more radical. You need to drill a hole [55x90mm] in the back panel [drill and template will be included in the kit]. By the way the hole is behind the motor cover so if you convert your Ultimaker 2 back to normal you won’t notice the hole. At the moment the firmware still needs some changes, but the control panel is already flipped [thanks Erik!]. Stretch goal XXL Colorfabb The Kickstarter campaign is soon coming to its end. So tell your 3D printing friends who are interested in large-scale printing, there are only 3 more days to back the project and purchase a Z-Unlimited! If the campaign raises more than €30.000,- the Z-Unlimited kit will also include an XXL spool of printing material by http://www.colorfabb.com. Trust me, you need this… ADCN lamp for Elephant campaign Last but not least, I am very proud to announce that today http://www.rooiejoris.nl/elephant won a prestigious advertising award, an http://www.adcn.nl/ lamp! cheers joris
  21. Hi @Renthal, short reply: >>What brand of filament did you use to print the elephant and how much filament was required to print that behemoth? colorfabb, i ordered 56 spools of 2.2kg >> Also what size nozzle 0.6-0.8 >> layer resolution 0.3 >> print temp, and speed? variable, depends on the shape for some columns i combined 7 different profile settings cheers \ joris
  22. @ aviphysics, interesting, but you need a very good bed adhesion...!!
  23. @ahoeben Thanks for the remark, i did change the tekst..! And thanks for backing [or are you another 'hoeben']. cheers \ joris
  24. Don't know yet. My first impression is that this product is not worth a real business model. Maybe I will do a new kickstarter again : ) A pledge for a BOM and some instructions is a good idea, i cannot change that anymore i think. But you can pledge for less than 15 euro, but then you [officially] don't get a reward... there are some hint in the video and i will document more, but now the focus is on some other things.
  25. it can work with heated bed, why not?! but you have to make your heated bed yourself and find a way to extend your cables indeed For taller prints i need sometimes more adhesion, then i print some parts direct on the acrylic bed [without tape] and the first layer a lot hotter like 235-240 degrees. That stick very well... cheers \ joris
