  1. Hi, Yesterday I was giving a Ultimaker demo in a business to business setting... Halfway the evening my LCD on the ulticontroler went bananas... it kept printing (luckily) but you couldn't see anything on the lcd anymore. When I restarted the ultimaker the LCD worked again... Does anyone else, also have this issue? My connections seem to be ok... thanx! Alexander
  2. I do have to be honest, Netfabb is way better at slicing large complex objects! so I fully agree with Zungara. Cura can't even slice them and Netfabb does it in a blink. Only thing is retraction. But I rather have strings and actually have a print... than no g-code at all... I have some car prints that only Netfabb could print, in that way the money on netfabb is well spent. I do hope that Cura will become even better, but everyone claiming that it's the best ehhh it does also have limitations! I normally choose the slicer depending on pla sort (soft for instance is way better printable with netfabb, to my opinion)and complexity of the stl. So cura or Netfabb... as long as every once in a while a update comes along...
  3. I have the same issue with very large models! and with small ones as well sometimes... strange...
  4. Hey Daid, I think it slices it now, although in 3D view it shows the previous file, textwise it tells me that the right model is sliced. I will check probably the model is to large to create a 3D view on my 4 year old laptop... although it's a SLI card setup XPS dell. Keep you posted greets!
  5. Hi Daid, Thx for your reaction, it is Binary (:-) ) it is very complex in shape, it's a main car race-body 1:18 scale +- 180 mm long around 60 mm high. I am waiting but Cura is indicating it stopped working ( programma werkt niet ) on the windows menu bar. Thing is that it might be large for most users and thingyverse models but For me and the things I am trying to print, it more of a rule than exception. So maybe it's nice to see if future Cura's can be able to work with these file-sizes... if you want I can probably sent you a file to test with... Although it needs to be for your eyes only, as I don't want this to be freely spread... It's created for a client of mine...but if it helps you in developing a faster and even better Cura, it's no problem. thx try to read it in again. alexander
  6. Hi, Can anyone tell me how large a stl file can be to load in Cura? I used to work with Netfabb and try to switch to Cura (latest release 12.08). In netfabb my file of 96 Mb (car 1:18 main body) is sliced fast en read in without problem. Cura doesn't load it in... seems to me that retraction and nice first layer option is not for this... Hope I am just doing something wrong, e.g. not loading the program as administrator... thx for your reactions Alexander
  7. You should play a Cura Card, they showed me the progress at Protospace and I am impressed! The bucks are lost, but Cura it is :-)
  8. So basically the solution is ... use Cura :-) will do from now on ! thx for reply
  9. Tata Steel racer: Guy Negre, 200 bar, air pressured technology concept, with Gomecsys engine technology in a hybrid fibre metal body shell and ultra lightweight high tensile steel by Tata. Concept Racer for Tata, High power, but low fuel usage. (1:50 variable compression technology patent Gomecsys) Car concept render in V-ray, modeled in Rhino printed...on ... The Ultimaker! In just 1 week I created this 1:32 scale model. Next step? 1:18 scale model with even more detail and better finishing... The Ultimaker was my best friend during this job... It printed without flaws in less then 2 days more than 20 objects on ultra q sliced in Nettfabb. it was printed in PLA by using the ulticontroller. Hope you like it!

  11. Hi, Couldn't find any post about this issue but just wondering if anyone else has experienced this event: My settings: Starting my Ultimaker up and printing from Ulticontroler SD card. Sliced with Nettfabb (should use Cura I know!!! good job Daid! Just saw what it can do and it's getting better and better!) Ultra q setting and fluff support printing in PLA What happens?! When loading a file from sd and starting the print, my Ultimaker prints and the print centers (like it should according to Nettfabb positions and origins) like it should. Sometimes the first layers don't stick very well... no problem I use my Ulticontroler and stop the print, home the head to origin. Go to the card menu, and restart my file again after cleaning the bed. So far so good, the print starts again, but then after laying down the lines in the top right corner, and finishing it correctly (flow is going temp is 220 degree celcius) the head spurts to the front right corner and starts it's printing there... It completely ignores the center of the bed and tries printing a large object in a very narrow space... constantly hitting the endstops... After shutting down the Ultimaker by switching it of and completely taking off the power by unplugging it what until the power is out of the adapter and then restarting it it usually works again... Has anyone experienced this? does anyone know what causes it? thanks
  12. Found a post on this already... Postmaster can delete this one!
  13. @mr_seeker Thanks for your reply! Makes me a less nervous! scared the Sh%# out of me this morning...
  14. Hope someone can help me?! Last night my pc turned off while printing. And so my model is damaged a little, but still, with tlc, ok. Can anyone tell me what is best to do... Take the risk of trying to restart and modify gcode to start from the last printed layer or take off my model and create new g code and placing this with glue on my printed model? I don't want to throw this away because it took 16 hours of printing... It needs to be finished in time... Thanx for your help in advance Alexander
