  1. Version 1.0.0


    This is a bin to fit in the door pockets of a MK1 Nissan Qashqai (2007-2013) The bin is primarily designed for the front door, to fit where a drink bottle is intended to go. It will also fit the back door. The Qashqai has nowhere to put sweet papers and other small pieces of litter, hence this bin. I printed this in black PLA on my UMO with a layer thickness of 0.25.
  2. I am now using the 'Printing Temperature - Initial Layer' parameter, so the extruder heat-up line can be changed to: M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0}
  3. I subsequently read it into Word and it formats to a readable form.
  4. Thanks, I have found it. Is there not a published list giving these parameters in an easily readable form. The 'fdmprinter.def.json' is very difficult to read, especially in Notepad. Don't know if any other text editors format it in a more readable form.
  5. Can anyone point me to a list of the Cura parameters that can be included in start/end code for G-code. e.g. {material_bed_temperature} I specifically want the term used for 'Initial layer temerature' Thanks Colin
  6. Thanks, that works perfectly. Here is my start code for reference: T0 ;Switch to the 1st extruder M104 S0 ;switch off nozzle 0 T1 ;Switch to the 2nd extruder M190 S{material_bed_temperature} ;Set bed temp and wait to reach temp M109 S{material_print_temperature} ; Set extruder temp and wait to reach temp G4 S20 ;Wait for extruder temp to stabilise G21 ;metric values G90 ;absolute positioning M107 ;start with the fan off G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops G1 Z15.0 F9000 ;move the platf
  7. Hello I also have a problem with the code ahead of the 'start code' My machine is a UMO with heated bed and dual extruder. I use the nozzles to keep different materials loaded, rather than as dual extrusion. I also need to keep the working area at maximum, so have created a single extruder machine that uses the second nozzle. However, the code at the top (shown in bold): ;FLAVOR:Marlin ;TIME:18013 ;Filament used: 7.09843m ;Layer height: 0.15 ;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 3.4.1 M190 S60 M104 S210 M109 S210 M82 ;absolute extrusion mode G21 ;metric values
  8. Hello Just loaded Cura 3.3.1 and find that PETG is missing from the materials list. Was there in 3.2.1 Is this an omission, or deliberately removed? How do I get this profile back? Thanks Colin
  9. I am using Cura 15.02 and an Ultimaker 2 Extended with the following speed settings: Print speed: 60 Travel speed: 150 Bottom Layer speed: 30 Infill speed: 100 Top/bottom speed 30 Outer Shell speed: 50 Inner Shell speed: 80 Material is ABS and using a 0.8mm nozzle with 0.2mm layer thickness and infill set to 100%. When I watch the print, the infill looks slower than the inner shell speed. Has anyone else seen this problem? Thanks Colin
  10. Hello Just had the same problem and tried using defined reference systems but did not work. Finally discovered that you need to tick the following box in the STL output options window.: 'Do not translate STL output data to positive space' I also had a defined coordinate system selected, but think it should work with the default.
  11. Wolfbite is brilliant for use with ABS It has solved all my adhesion problems and provided you allow the bed to cool below 30deg the parts come off really easily.
  12. I have been working with second extruder to produce supports and notice some effects that may have been covered elsewhere, but bring them together here: 1) Extruders keep swapping even though above level of support and nothing to be printed by second head 2) Wipe tower is very fragile if materials do not bond well. Either have to build huge tower or it falls over before end of print I see cut-out of unnecessary extruder swaps is planned for 'pink unicorn', but could we also have separate wipe towers for the two nozzles. The Cube appears to use a mechanical wiper and priming bin. Can we hav
  13. I am printing with silver flexible polyester from plastic2print. This works very well, but does not stick to the bed well on larger prints. (glass only, not the kapton they advise) I want to put down a raft of pla, but Cura will not switch the raft to nozzle 2 unless the support is also turned on. Looks like you need to switch on support, but set the angle to something very near 90 if you only want the raft.
  14. I have installed this plug-in and it does select the second extruder, however the nozzle temperature always gets set to zero. I then have to edit the G-code in notepad to correct the temperature setting. Any chance of getting this fixed, as the plugin is very usefull.
  15. Hello everyone, wonder if anyone has seen this? Just fitted my dual extrusion kit to my UM1 and now have heated bed plus dual heads. Also using Cura 15.02.1 I have loaded 2 types of pla, but want to try a print with just the 2nd extruder. Installed the 'select extruder' plugin to allow me to use just the second head. When I use the layer view on Cura, the support structure appears displaced to the other head. Have tried playing with the support dual extruder settings in the support setup, but cannot get it right. Not sure if this is a graphics problem or actually in the code. Wanted to i
