    Bizarre Build Times and Material Usage

    Maybe you should try just to increase in Cura the travel speed to something around 150 or more.

    Improve the interface of the Support Blocker

    I was reviewing your suggestion and got to the conclusion that it will not work, because there is no precision in the areas painted red. Check this example that I am currently working on.You can see clearly that the red painted area do not correspond exactly to where each of the supports go. I even think that we should be able to remove parts of a given support.

    Improve the interface of the Support Blocker

    This seems to me a good idea.

    Improve the interface of the Support Blocker

    In many cases (maybe this is not the best example) it is difficult to identify what is selected to be deleted.
  5. Feature Request - I would like to ask you to improve the interface of the Support Blocker. As soon as we select the part we want to delete, all the drawing becomes gray (Example 2), what is an odd behavior. I suggest that when we select the support part we want to get rid of, it just becomes red (Example 3), so that then we can see clearly what we have selected and then be able to delete it.

    My machine started making a strange noise.

    Just to give a closure to this problem. I finally decided to sent my machine to Wishbox, a competent workshop that represents Ultimaker in Brazil. I had even to design a special wooden packaging (with some foam padding inside) to guarantee that it would fly safely to Santa Catarina State from Rio. After a thorough research they discovered that the problem was in the toothed belts that were a little bit waisted. I remember seeing some black powder acumulating on one side at the top rear of the machine. They changed the belts, adjusted the tension and my Ultimaker is now working as it were brand new.

    How to keep 3D file at the center of the image in Cura

    Hey Ahoben. Great tip, thanks! I knew the other navigation options. It makes me wonder wether Cura should keep this option checked as I cannot imagine any better way to work.

    How to keep 3D file at the center of the image in Cura

    In other words, when I zoom in a small part its image goes out of the screen.
  9. I was always able to maintain a 3D file image at the center of the screen in Cura. To do so it was just required to click at the center of the object and then I could enlarge the image at will and it would be always at the center of the screen. This is a basic feature for adequate navigation. Maybe there is a new way to solve this, but the old way does not work anymore. How should I proceed?

    Can we open a .gcode file in Cura?

    This is an excellent improvement!

    Ultimaker files its first patent

    I think that this is a smart move by Ultimaker and the explanation given is very clear: when your company becomes bigger and starts to challenge the big guys, the game becomes tougher, and any innovation that is worth a lot of money can be easily patented by any company that may sue you and oblige you to stop using it. This has happenned a lot in corporate world and even startups must not be naive and imagine that this will not happen with them. But...once you patent something you can decide wether you will allow other companies to use it or not, and in which special conditions. That's what Ultimaker is doing. Well done.

    My prints are not sticking to the glass anymore

    Roger, that was exactly what happened to me. I also was printing parts in the form of circle and got the same result displayed in your picture.

    My prints are not sticking to the glass anymore

    Hi guys Thanks for the answers. I ran out of isopropylalcohol and was using a hidrated version. Maybe this is a problem. Humidity is truly an issue, specially because I live in Ipanema, close to the beach. What is driving me crazy is that those conditions were there since I bought the machine, so it is amazing when all of a sudden things start to go south. I am always worried about humidity, and tried a new filament that was sealed. The result improved a little but I still had poor adhesion. The salt option is absolutely new for me. I will try it. Thank you all for the answers Celso
  14. Hi guys I've printed so far hundreds of objects in PLA, and have never had problems with them sitcking to the glass. Since I upgraded to Cura 2.7, and after some time without using my machine, I cannot make parts to stick to the surface. I always used 60º C temperature and printed my PLA with nozzle at 210ºC. Previously, when I wanted to make prints stick very hard to the glass I used hairspray with great success. Now even this solution does not work. I already cleaned very well the glass, changed material and the problem persists. Any clues? regards Celso
  15. Hi guys It looks that I cannot anymore position my part in the center of my screen in Cura 2.7. When I used to click in one part inside Cura, it would automatically go to the center of the screen. Do you know how to correct that? I am using a PowerMac running macOS Sierra thanks Celso
