  1. Many thanks I am using Windows 10 64 bit. OK I found them. Program files Location changed to Ultimaker Cura and I was looking under Cura
  2. Hi I want to replace a machine profile with an edited one. I cannot locate where all the files are that show up in Manage Printer - Add Printer - Other. I assume I should find a json file and replace it. Any pointers? Regards Ian
  3. Hi The Inventor import works a treat on all objects tried so far. There is one small issue. When you write the G code it does not pick up the file name imported. It writes to "unnamed.gcode". Regards Ian
  4. Hi Just seen this. Raised an issue on Git and the problem is now fixed.
  5. Hi Has Firmware for Ultimaker 2+ been updated in Cura 2.6.1? Question really is Should I update firmware? Also is there a way to check the firmware version currently installed on the printer? Regards Ian
  6. Have you tried Version 2.5 release? Seems to me to be better at multiply. Regards Ian
  7. Hi I have just used multiply and one at a time to print a number of small parts on an Ultimaker 2+. Latest multiply in Cura 2.5 is an improvement. Unfortunately the first part printed fine but there was no filament extruded on the second part for ages so no skirt and no bottom layers. Looking at the code I see a G10 at the end of the first part which I understand is retraction and then a G11 at the beginning of the 2nd part which I understand should reverse the G10. I commented out the G10 and the parts all printed OK but with a little stringing. I am therefore sure the problem is caused b
  8. Hi I can confirm this. I am sure its a bug. I have increased skirt line count to get round it. Ian
  9. Hi Why is there a basic and zunlimited version for the UM2plus? Regards Ian
  10. Many thanks I realised you can change bed temperature with the manual control. What I should have asked is can I change the bed temperature within the gcode as I did on the Original? Regards Ian
  11. Hi I understand the Ultimaker 2+ has the bed temperature set on the machine. Does this mean you can no longer change bed temperature during a print? I have just replaced my Original with a 2+. I have a stack of ABS that I want to use up. After many months of experimenting I found that I needed to start with a bed temperature of 110 to get a good stick onto Kapton but could reduce to 85 after the first few layers. Regards Ian
  12. Hi Does any one know the pitch of the Ultimaker 2 + bed levelling screws? i.e. How much does one turn raise or lower the bed? Regards Ian
  13. Hi Not sure if its the same problem but I also had lines on the final surface. In Cura 2.3 I used Combing Mode No Skin and that solved my problem. Ian
  14. Hi I guess the on line manual is a bit behind the software. In 2.3 combing can be:- What exactly do All and No Skin mean? Ian
  15. Many thanks. That helps but there is still no Z hop in many layers. You can check this by opening file and searching for Z. Example from beginning of file:- G0 X64.289 Y86.981 G10 G1 Z1.27 ; Z 1 mm hop G0 F2880 X64.318 Y136.09 Z1.27 G1 Z.27 G11 Example from last layer in file:- G0 F7200 X68.805 Y86.129 G1 F1332 X69.391 Y86.716 E11681.00058 G0 X69.452 Y86.777 ;TIME_ELAPSED:12541.418602 ;LAYER:37 G0 F7200 X69.353 Y86.875 Z3.97 ; only reference to Z in the layer ;TYPE:WALL-INNER G1 F2400 X69.357 Y87.188 E11681.01154 I suspect this is because retract controls Z hop and presu
  16. Hi I have just updated to Cura 2.3 I always use Z hop as many of my parts have a flat top surface and Z hop avoids any marking of the surface. I have just run the first job and got a surface mark. I examined the file and the Z hop is active on the skirt only. Any idea why this is? I see that Z hop works with Retraction which is enabled. What causes retraction? Have I missed a setting in the profile? Regards Ian
  17. Hi It remember file location all the time Cura is open. But it does not remember location on my PC when you first start Cura. It reverts to Users directory (C:\Users\Ian). Where is current location information stored? Could it be because my object files are on a network drive? bers
  18. Hi Is there anyway to force Cura 2.1.3 to open object files in a specific folder? I can't find where to set it. Also a small request. I have a number of removable drives. You select the drive you want to save to using the drop down which is fine. But you have nothing to show selected drive until you actually do a save. It would be helpful if current selected removable drive was shown somewhere . Regards Ian
  19. Hi Problem must have related to model file in some way. Unfortunately it was a part under development and the original stl was overwritten. I did the same test this morning with the latest STL ready to send files to Stefan and it worked perfectly. I have closed the issue. Thanks for all the help. Regards Ian
  20. Ok I copied the plugin from 14.01 into 14.03 to try. I now have the problem back. So the identical plugin works in 14.01 but not 14.03 so I am guessing 14.03 is the problem rather than the plugin. Ian
