  1. I see what you mean. Unfortunately, I won't be able to try this until end of next week, maybe nallath can confirm that this could be the problem?

    Cura 2.1.2 and duplicating models

    You're right, that works. What I did is load an object and tried to rotate it without first selecting the object. Before you select anything, the point around which it rotates is somewhere above the print bed. I only select an object if I want to move / resize it, so I think it would be good to have the point around which it rotates on the print bed as long as nothing is selected.

    Cura 2.1.2 and duplicating models

    Well, I used 2.1.2 for the first time yesterday and wanted to split an object, and split wasn't there. Then I read this post asking about how to multiply objects and saw that's missing too. So maybe I accidentally found the only two missing features and jumped to the conclusion that many features are still missing. But one more thing that's also missing is the ability to set the print head size, see my other post: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/21820-cura-212-crashes-into-object-in-one-at-a-time-mode And the GUI just feels so slow compared to the old Cura. Especially the Layer view. I used to go through the layers and also check what the infill looks like, but with the new Cura I have to stop at each layer and wait for several seconds until the infill is shown. What's also very annoying is that the point around which the print bed is rotated seems to be somewhere above the print bed. So the print bed always goes out of view when I want to look at it from the side. In the old Cura, the point around which the print bed rotated was directly on the print bed, so you could rotate it as much as you wanted, it would always stay in view. I don't know why this was changed, you only have to use the program for 30s you notice how awkward and cumbersome this is.
  4. It's machine_head_with_fans_polygon. In Cura 15.04.6 it had the following numbers: Head size towards X min 75mm Head size towards Y min 18mm Head size towards X max 18mm Head size towards Y max 35mm However, all of them except X max seem to be very optimistic, I'd add at least 5mm to each. In ultimaker_original.json machine_head_with_fans_polygon I can see 8 numbers, grouped in pairs: -75, 35 -75, -18 18, 35 18, -18 So the numbers seem to be the same. I don't know if it crashed into the part because the numbers are too optimistic, or if there is a bug somewhere. Anyway, I think there should be a way to set the printer head size without having to edit a .json file. Even if it comes with correct defaults, many ppl have modified their print heads with other fans, etc.

    Cura 2.1.2 and duplicating models

    I suggest to use Cura 15.04.6, there you just right-click an object, choose "Multiply object" from the menu and enter how many objects you want. Cura 2.1.2 still seems to be in some pre-alpa state, it's slow and buggy and lacks many features of the original Cura (versions 15.04.6 and older).
  6. I moved from Cura 15.04.6 to 2.1.2 yesterday and tried to print two parts in "One at a Time" mode. When it started to print the second part, the print head crashed into the first part because it placed the two objects two close to each other. In 15.04.6 I can set the printer head size, but I can't find this setting in 2.1.2, can anyone tell me where to find it? Also, when I have a Ultimaker original, with completely original printer head, and I choose "Ultimaker original" as my printer in Cura, why does it not have the correcet printer head size set already?

    Welches CAD 3D Programm

    Dann scheint das wohl geöst zu sein, jedenfalls funktioinert bei mir auf Windows 7 64 Bit Cura 14.09 und 14.07 problemlos mit FreeCAD 0.14, sogar wenn beide gleichzeitig laufen.

    Welches CAD 3D Programm

    Was für Inkompatibilitäten meinst du? Ich verwende die 0.14 und habe bis jetzt nichts festgestellt. Wäre aber gut zu Wissen, wenn es da was gibt, was man vielleicht bei der Konstruktion beachten sollte.

    Welches CAD 3D Programm

    Hallo Udo, Ich habe auch mit Sketchup angefangen, aber irgendwie habe ich es oft nicht geschafft, dass das Programm das tut was ich will. :oops: Irgendwann habe ich dann auf FreeCAD gewechselt. Erst hatte ich etwas bedenken wegen der Einarbeitungszeit in ein "richtiges" CAD Programm, aber nach ein paar Video tutorials hatte ich die Basics im Griff. Mittlerweilen kann ich damit eigenlich alles Zeichnen, was ich brauche, d.h. hautpsächlich technische Dinge. Für organische Formen, Skulpturen, etc. eignet es sich aber nicht, da ist wohl Blender besser, aber damit habe ich noch nicht gearbeitet.
  10. Since I installed the heated bed kit on my Ultimaker original and updated the firmware (with Cura 14.09), I have two menu entries for preheating PLA: Preheat PLA 1 and Preheat PLA bed. When I choose Preheat PLA 1, I expected that only the nozzle is heated, but it heats the bed too. Is that normal? Seems to be a bug for me, otherwise it makes no sense to have two menu entries.
  11. I just noticed, that the cable which came with my heated bed kit has different colors than what they mention in the users manual. So in case someone is confused, the brown and the blue wires go where the gray wires are in the manual, and the black and the white wires go where the black wires are in the manual:
  12. Mine too! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
  13. How can I see if my electronics are version 1.5.7?
  14. Order placed! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: One thing I'm a little worried about: With the original Z-stage it was important, that the Z-nut could move to compensate the wobble of the led screw. The nut on the new Z-stage seems to be screwed to the Z-stage, doesn't that make the whole Z-stage wobble?
  15. That's why I asked 3dcase and not you. :wink:
