  1. I am very thankful for the "Select Extruder" plugin for single-nozzle prints from Dim3nsioneer.

    It'd be even better if I could right click on an object in the platform and select which nozzle I'd like to print from there.

    I know that I can click 2 objects that are intended to be overlaid on each other and merge them to print on a 2-nozzle setup, but for 3+ nozzles, there's no easy way to pick the nozzle that I want for each item.

    Is this possible? If I understood the code better, I'd offer to write it myself, but...

     


  2. I still have this problem with 15.02.1. No estimate is rendered. I am using Cura with a 3rd party RepRap style printer (5-nozzle RoVa3D). I recently upgraded from 14.0x.

     

    Can someone who has this issue try adding an Ultimaker Original machine to their machine list, select it, restart Cura, and then check if the issue is gone?

    If that's the case, then I'm quite sure where I made the mistake. (Due to the UM2go I had to slightly adjust how the text on the backplate is rendered, and the UMO does not have this text, skipping that rendering step)

     

    I added an Ultimaker Original, selected it, restarted, loaded a model and I do get the estimate shown. If I then select my printer, the text stays and no re-estimate is calculated. If I then quit and restart and load a model with my printer, no estimate is displayed. I only see an estimate with the Ultimaker Original profile.

    Creating a new profile for my printer also displays an estimate.

    Is there a problem with using printer definitions created in Cura 14.0x?

    EDIT: Update, I found that when I set my printer back to 4 nozzles instead of 5, the estimate displays. Only when my printer is set with (the correct number of) 5 nozzles does the estimate text break.

     


  3. Hello Daid,

    First off I want to thank you for your hard work on Cura. I am stunned at both the ease of use and the speed/quality of the output as compared with my former combo (Slic3r + Pronterface). I am still occasionally exporting G-Code and printing with Pronterface to have more manual control during the print, but this is starting to go away.

    One small feature request: the RoVa3D (aka ORD MH3000) on which I am printing has 5 print heads. Would it be possible to increase the max # of extruders you support to 5? Another request would be to support more per-extruder parameters, e.g. setting different retract parameters, flow%, and nominating specific nozzles for support material selection. That said, I'm still not yet printing regularly with more than 4, so I am probably going to use Cura for a while to come.

    Thank you again for all your hard work!

    -Joan
