    Heated bed problem

    Good day! Recently I purchase such kit http://www.ebay.com/itm/151272164070?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 I used it approximately 5-6 hours, and on another print, I found that bed temperature start to fall. Stopped and found that on relay module have problem, you can see it on picture. Bed temperature was 120 C. It is due to high temperature or maybe could be another deal? Thanks in advance!

    Printing small Yoda bust

    Cura ignore it because it is less than 0.4 mm thick. If you increase it by yourself in model, it will be printable.

    your most useful tool?

    Something old.. something new, sequel.

    Actually that is what I have achieved, but it is not like press button and go. But that need only some small correction in cura and that's all. For me it is progress.

    Prints stop randomly

    Ulticontroller is preferable option. If I have a long print, printing window freeze after 2-3 hours, and no any possibilities to change settings, but still printing, finish print and I should shutting down window by force. But with previous version of cura, no any such incident happened.

    Prints stop randomly

    Not every print, but with latest version, it happens few times with me.

    Not an Adult Toy Print

    Tension lead to shift of borders, not touching fill with borders etc. Like this case, pretty sure deal is with soft.

    Not an Adult Toy Print

    Suppose it is software problem, in new cura there is option about fill and borders, so put there 0% and this line should disappear.

    substitute for blue tape

    I use something the same, but only by one layer.

    Help! Print turns to junk after a few cm

    Just for information about 1.75 mm filament, the extruder just make it fine, only thing what I did to get not bad overall experience is put inside hot-end teflon tube 2 mm inner diameter.

    There is no image
  18. Oh crap, if I had money for now. But your design is just perfect...Where I can get all that stuff?! Maybe is it possible to publish list of materials and what should I do to get the same result? PS You know when I saw this design on thingiverse, oh... it is really beautiful!!!
  19. As you can see there is huge difference in weight and time. Ok time it is not so big deal, anyway plus/minus it is possible to estimate. But also not every time. But weight in 3 times difference?! What readings should I take into account? As for me more realistic about weight is from preparing window, in previous version were some small difference, but it was really close. PS anyway as for my opinion cura nowadays is best slicer on open source field. Probably from commercial products too, but never used anyone.

    Weight and time difference btw statistics and prepare windows

    Prepare window is more correct, cause I use 1.75 mm filament.

    Help! Print turns to junk after a few cm

    Have the same problem, but used 1.75 mm filament. Suppose that problem with extruder, somehow it stop move filament.

    Wanted: great ideas! (YouMagine)

    As for me I'm still looking for good 3d editor, often use tinkercad, but there is limitations so it is really hard to achieve some complicated results. As for me there is missing functionality to edit separately points, edges, faces, like in 123d design, but 123d design they did it not so good, as expectation for simple use. When you change one point or edge, another point or edge you can edit perpendicular to your edges, as for me editing should be perpendicular to bottom. As result I cant make geometry, which I want. And another result is frustration for me, and must do break to try again. Probably I dont know that 123d design have such functionality, but it is definitely not so obvious.

    Cura in Other languages

    Anyway if it is possible I can translate to russian language. Just need list of words.

    New support material method.

    With cura 13.04 managed to print hydrolisk from game starcraft 2. Due to very small parts it is was impossible to remove support, also settings was 100% for support. So it was like a stone.
  25. alex-marakesch

    Weird... cura 13.6.3 not preparing at all! (MacOX)

    O crap!=) It start work, after tag were deleted. Thanks a lot Daid!
