  1. No problem you have exactly the same idea as me now I have to devlope the slicing not the easy part
  2. thanks I am going to have a closer look to this
  3. the problem is I am not working with traditional layers. my layers could be 1 mm at one point and 2 mm at an other with a variation of extrusion between those two point. I searching for a new way of calcul without using some plug in. I am more looking for mathematical calcul the slicing software are using thanks every one for thoose information
  4. if I am right I find this formula (Size of the filament X length of filament input) / Size of the nozzle = length of filament output
  5. what I understand of the gcode is that he give an extrusion lenght , a speed and two point in the space and the goal of the machine is to extrude the lenght and to move from one point to the other with the speed define. So I think I am going to be able to synchronize the movement with the extrusion ? Am I wrong ?
  6. Yes this is this type of information i am looking for I am also looking for the amount of material I need to extrude when I flatten some new material on a layer already extrude for exemple if i want to extrude 1 mm height or 0.5 mm height is this is going to change width of my extrusion. when you print a layer, the extrusion is flatten on the older layer. I don't really understand how to calculate the shape the extrusion is going to take when you flatten it on a new surface. It seems to be different than filament on top of other filament (the extrusion is not round but more some kind of ova
  7. hello I am an ultimaker 1 user and I am working on a new way of 3d printing on a robot arm support. I am looking for some information about the relation between the size of the noze the amount of plastic extrude, the speed , the retraction and the distance between the layer. how I can define some strategy to slice some model with different plane not just z axe. My biggest problem is to understand how much plastic I had to extrude to fill a specific amount. If you had any mathematical formula or test or files I can read to understand this I would be very happy thanks and sorry for my poor
  8. hello I have an ultimaker 1 with out hot bed. I wandering what is the best betwee a cross flow fan and a double fan near the extruder? do you know how to buy cheap fan and how to mount them with the conectic ? thanks for the cross flow devlopement it look amasing
  9. Thanks I fix it , it was the socket adaptator problem good printing
  10. hello I bring my ultimaker from France to England and the power supply is not working any-more. do you think that would be because of the adaptor from European to English socket ? when I connect the power supply to the socket no green light and went I connect it to the ultimaker a green light appear but the on off don't make the ultimaker work. my ultimaker can be connect with usb ( blue light from the extruder) but not working. If you have some answer ... thanks for reading
  11. nice can you give me more information about the connection like photos ? I am not sure how to do ... connect directly the to new conector red on the red of the plug and the two black on the black plug ?
  12. It is because I only have the connector selling wise the basic ultimaker, so I have to create a derivation to connect the two fan in the same plug. that is why i am wondering if i have to buy two fan witch need lees energies but I think that two fan of 12V 0,10 Am in derivation will plug white-out problem of energies ...
  13. cool and how do you connect both of them to the connector ? I have to change the V or the Am of the fan ?
  14. I have finde tow diferente kind which one is the best for the hack ? - http://www.reprap-france.com/31-ventilateur-4x4cm.html - http://www.reprap-france.com/32-ventilateur-6cm.html
  15. hello I want to have some advise on the double fan. it is use full or not? where I can buy the fan? how I can connect it? thanks for reading
  16. I uninstal the 12.12 version and instal the 12.11 now this version is working I hope you can fix this bug on the 12.12 version
  17. I thanks for this update but my cura is not longer working it crash evry time I open it ... do you have a solution ? someone else have this problem? can I Upload the last version which were working perfectly ? if it can help to understand (Process: Cura [567] Path: /Applications/Cura/Cura.app/Contents/MacOS/Cura Identifier: com.ultimaker.Cura Version: 12.12 (12.12) Code Type: X86-64 (Native) Parent Process: launchd [289] Date/Time: 2013-01-03 01:35:42.747 +0100 OS Version: Mac OS X 10.6.8 (10K549) Report Version: 6 Interval Sin

    thanks a lot for all those answer I will look a litle bit more, but It is working on the PC part of my mac so I will change when the update will be done
  19. hello Some one know if cura will be on mac with a .app or .dmg soon ? I am to noob to folow the entire way to instal the version with the terminal :S
  20. Seting: thanks for all your answerd, I have some more question can you give me some advise to have good seting I don't find any tutoriel which explain how it works.
  21. You think that my ultimaker can't do this ? do you have some advise to give for the preset for cura befor sliding to Gcode?
  22. Hello, I have a probleme with the print of a complex model. My printer work well with simple model but with this one It start good but after some time y don't give enought material to continue printing. I don't know if I can resolve this problem by changing some preset when sliding to Gcode or I have to change somthing on the model or on the ultimaker. I show you some pincture to ilustrate after. sorry for my poor english. :oops:
  23. thanks a lot for all thoose good advice the printer work well. know I juste have to put more tension on the belt and calibrate very well the Z stop good print
