    I want to start using plugins

    Did you put the plugin's .py file in the /Contents/Resources/plugins folder contained in /Applications/.../Cura 15.04.app? If so, a restart of Cura is enough to make it usable. I'm on OS X 10.9.5 with Cura 15.04.3.
  2. @LePaul My current UMO settings: Control->Motion->Accel: 2000 Control->Motion->Vxy-jerk: 12

    The plug-in takes some time to process. I tried it on last week's contest model with starting and ending Z values of 1 and 10 respectively and it added just shy of 30 seconds (with MY current Cura settings). I never saw the "RetractWC..." text in Cura though.
  4. There is a single jumper labeled "CARD_PWR" located close to the electronics cooling fan output. The jumper needs to be present for both boards to share power.

    Ideal settings for Cura

    Which version of Cura are you using? You can increase the "Bottom/Top Thickness" to a multiple of "Layer Height" that works out to more printed layers when closing the top. For example, to get 6 layers on top with a layer height of 0.2, use bottom/top thickness of 1.2. If your layer height was 0.12 with the same bottom/top thickness of 1.2, you'd get 10 layers closing the top surface.

    I recently found that applying a small amount of water first, then using the glue stick all over the bed followed by a clean cloth yields more consistent results.

    I get that when the nozzle is a bit too close for a given first layer height. I regularly use 0.12 for first layer height on my UMO with no HBK. Makes for a smoother bottom when using Kapton tape and a thin layer of glue.

    Cura Time warp?

    G-Coding help.

    G-Coding help.

    Are you referring to the room temperature of "20-something"? The hotend and bed are not actually on at that time.
  14. The first layer or two of the bottom of a bridge won't have a smooth connection between each x/y pass since they droop and won't stick together. I often cut a few of the strings off to clean up the bottom if the span is great enough to warrant it.
  15. The support broke off very easily with a 0.2mm gap..
