  1. https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/2048 I asked for this before... but it has never made it.... would still be a good improvement but I don't feel its very useful to ask again see below 😃
  2. can you explain a bit more, or beter show a picture? do you still use the original small black feeder?
  3. I'm not sure if they generated an STL or just directly generated the G-code for the test prints, but they didn't use a slicer for sure as there is non available... After a quick read of the article my interpretation would be that there is no real practical/mechanical reason to implement Schwartz P or D into Cura as they do not outperform the already implemented Gyroid infill. They do look cool though 🙂
  4. Not atm, but you could always ask the guy who brought us the gyroid infill for cura; @smartavionics interesting read I found; https://www.researchgate.net/publication/330920019_Bio-Inspired_3D_Infill_Patterns_for_Additive_Manufacturing_and_Structural_Applications
  5. to be clear; take out the horseshoe clip (the blue thingy) then push down on the white thingy while pulling out the bowden tube.... Works the same on the feeder side of the tube...
  6. And you should be proud !!! you rock !!! Some of your work should really be standard incorporated in Cura, f.e the sidebar plugin is 1000x better than the default gui. Thanks for making Cura a lot nicer to work with.
  7. I don't agree, I prefer the QR as it's easier to clean the gears. I run one on an Ultimaker2 for years and it just works. Would recommend it.
  8. And to add, some of my project files created in cura 4.3 all with a specific printer make cura crash, funny thing is the custom printer gets added before cura crashes. Did send the crash reports.
  9. He Robert, welcome. You made me curious, now I want to see the rain>electricity thing....
  10. This seems counter productive to me, as the lines will also be printed 0.48 apart from each other. I would just keep 0.4 but increase flow % and temp a bit. If you increase flow, and need working threads, you may need some negative "horizontal expansion" (in CURA's shell settings) to compensate
  11. not a complete answer... but here's the pinout ; https://github.com/Ultimaker/Ultimaker2/blob/master/1091_Main_board_v2.1.1_(x1)/Main Board V2.1.1.pdf
  12. it was always just below 300 euro i think. Probably the effect of the pound not doing to well.....
  13. for curious people that don't want to install the beta, you can also just download the zip https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/releases/tag/4.4-beta-pre-release And check the new profiles (open fe in notepad++) in: Downloads\Cura-4.4-beta-pre-release.zip\Cura-4.4-beta-pre-release\resources\intent\ultimaker_s5
  14. Thoiugh I'm not sure Ultimaker is still officially suppling loose parts of the feeder (they should IMHO...) they did in the past, see below for the partnumber of your small gear, Just try to order at your reseller and mention the ultimaker partnumber (bottom right on the label)
  15. or just print this version.... https://www.youmagine.com/designs/um2-lazy-lever
  16. All parts used to be for sale separatly, but I also noticed the "spare parts book" only shows the full assembly. As you can see here I bought my first feeder completely from parts.... Here's the partnumbers of the arm, I would say just try to order it from your reseller...
  17. My gut feeling says it's cura and not something mechanically... did you use a standard profile? which one? changed any settings?
  18. Sounds to me you're just looking for an excuse to upgrade to the duet 😛 , you know your wife will learn how to use it in just a few minutes as it's super easy, specially with the "print to duet" plugin in cura.... Also, you'll have the same workflow as on the other machine.. The duet is just the better option imho..
  19. For Ultimaker2 for sure, many people are using f.e. the alternative "tinker" firmware for there machine. https://github.com/TinkerGnome I'm not sure what you want to archieve, but you may also want to have a look at Duet3D electronics for printers (I use it in 2 Ultimaker machines) where you can modify many parameters without having to recompile firmware... https://duet3d.dozuki.com/#Section_Firmware
  20. looking in the drawing of the Ultimaker3 (same feeder) the item number is 1279. normally you can order any part at an ultimaker reseller, but I'm not sure in this case as the spare parts books of UM2+ and UM3 only mention the complete feeder assembly, but ask your reseller anyway, they can probably order it. Otherwise it seems like a part you could possibly find in a good hardware store...
  21. And another thing, when using settings like the line width in the name, it would also need to update (or manually be updatable) when a change is made. This would be good to have anyhow as f.e. when you change printer model after you loaded a file, the naming will not update.
  22. at the left red arrow; buttons to select the extruder to use for the selected model at the right red arrow; where you can turn of/on a extruder In the detail setting you can also select a specific extruder for things like support, brim, infill etc...
  23. oh wow, looks like you've got yourself a cool job, congratz..
