Personal Information

  1. OK, I leave it to Ghostkeeper who seems to be involved -- at least it looks like I did not posted a redundant entry on github.
  2. OK thanks (you are as reactive as usual!!) I was unable to spot it in github so I had filed https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/5251 You may want to close it as well then
  3. Found it! It seems to have no effect in Cura Application "Monitor", but it works in Cura Connect (below)
  4. The corresponding global setting is posted as a feature request here https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/5250
  5. Cura 4.0.0-BETA / ubuntu18.04.1 LTS / UM3 third party filament (Protopasta CFPLA) print over network Previously, it complained also about the filament not being recognized (no NFC), but I just had to go and confirm on the Printer itself before it allowed printing. Now, Cura 4 "monitor" tells about it explicitly "Requires configuration changes", which is a very welcomed addition. So I thought I could tell it to proceed without having to go and click on the printer. However, clicking on the "Override" button of the popup in the MONITOR panel seems to have no effect
  6. As with Trump before the election, I think I will shut up from now. Things are done and assumed (including on my side). My intent was only to bring under the sun what I really consider a problem. I do not care much if I received mixed answers (including insults!), even though I really only wanted to be constructive. I am unsure if/how it will evolve for now, but at least I feel less lonely when people like Rich, @Pearce, @ultiarjan or even Olson says the move is not as obviously positive for the Open-Source, as stated officially... or that there is at least bullshit in the press release. Sor
  7. Thanks Sander, I would have better heard it this way in the first place. I am not condemning Ultimaker and I did not, but I felt it was incorrectly justified: the "press release" was probably specifically thought for and aimed at your community since professional/business customers have less issues with patents. Of course it does mean you care about the community (you would be foolish not to!). But then, talking to the community could have been more direct instead of this corporate bs where the company strategical choice is presented as fundamentally positive for everyone. Every move is a tra
  8. BTW: I just discovered that my own use of "slippery slope" is itself a fallacy, oops https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slippery_slope https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/ or, for an even longer read than my posts, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fallacies
  9. And to answer to nallath answer here: And please do tell, how would the +-7 full time engineers on Cura be paid if there is no business? I sure as hell won't spend 40 hours a week developing open source software (as much as I would love to, but i also have a morgage to pay). Sorry to be blunt but your reply is a raw fallacy: you want me to sound like I do not want Ultimaker to do business (and in turn, you sound like patents are the only way to pay people!?). But Ultimaker did and does a great job at finding money to pay its employees and even hire more! Personal mortgages are quit
  10. Huh. Sorry but I certainly did remove no comment, I have never done so (but for occasional spam: neither Nallath nor Jaimie were ever spammers). For a few hours, the G+ comments were "disconnected" from blogger (and I consequently added a link to them, until they returned -- don't ask why..). Check e.g. Jaimie's useful answer, it is still there. But we would better grow up altogether and avoid personal attacks, right? I mostly say that "trust" or "faith" have no legal binding... contrary to patents which are basically weapons, and dubious at the ethics. And I wrote it: I trust Ultimaker an
  11. "Ultimaker won't change?" What I really dislike is the bullshit that goes with the news. E.g. what the heck are you talking about when you write "[applying for patents] also keeps our community engaged and excited. We want to keep innovating, so our users can keep innovating too! That’s what an open source community is all about.". And there are other great news: you will not sue me as a contributor: "If you’re an individual user or contributor, you don’t need to worry, as these patents will not affect you.". When a company files patents, it is trying to protect its own intellectual property
