  1. Thanks @nallath, that was the information I was looking for 🙂
  2. Hi, I am trying to create a new machine profile for Cura. I created a machine definition and extruder definition file and also have a STL for the build plate. When I create a new printer based on this profile, the build volume cube and the build plate representation are not centered to each other. The build plate is misaligned in x and y direction: I guess I am missing parameters in the machine definition file to align them, but I don't know which parameters to use or how to create the STL in a way that it automatically gets aligned. How can I do this?
  3. I had similar issues (the mushroom) and could mitigate it by reducing the retract length at the end of the (previous) print job from 20 to 10mm.
  4. Schau mal, ob Deine Grafikkartentreiber aktuell sind. Ich hatte ähnliche Fehler auf einem Rechner mit Intel HD Grafik bis ich den Treiber des PC Herstellers durch die aktuellsten Treiber direkt von Intel ersetzt habe. Ansonsten hilft manchmal auch Cura über die Compatibility Settings im Windows 7/8 Kompatibilitätsmodus zu starten.
  5. Hi all, what is the default retraction length that the UM2 firmware does at the end of the print? Best regards, Reiner
  6. I solved the problem on my laptop by upgrading to the latest graphics drivers from Intel (newer than the ones from the laptop vendor who doesn't update them anymore).
  7. If I edit the speeds in the sidebar, I get a popup notice every time I change the profile notifying me that the default was overwritten and if I wanted to keep or reset it to the default. That's why I was looking for a way to permanently set such basic values. I guess the way via .def.json files is the better then because then others could also benefit from it. Could you point me to a suitable set of such files that can be used as a starting point for a new set? Or is there even a documentation on how to create (and contribute) such new printer definitions to Cura development?
  8. Hi all, I am trying to setup new machine settings for my Turnigy fabrikator Mini 1.5 in Cura 4.6.1. I created a new machine based on the "Custom FFF" type. I could set a number of parameters of the machine there, but seem to be unable to set global max print and travel speeds anywhere. After defining the machine and extruder, a set of default profiles has been created automatically but they all contain default print speeds of 60mm/s which is much too fast for this little printer. Where can I modify the defaults for the printer? Best regards, Reiner
  9. Hello! Does the UM2 firmware store any values in EEPROM on the board? If it does, are they completely reset by the Reset to Factory Defaults menu item? I see some strange behavior on my UM2 after switching back and forth between stock and @tinkergnome's firmware version and now I wonder if there is something in EEPROM that causes this... Best regards, Reiner
  10. Yes, with this change it compiles again. Thanks!
  11. Hi, I am trying to compile the current version of the firmware from github with Arduino but get an error: Arduino: 1.8.12 (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino Mega or Mega 2560, ATmega2560 (Mega 2560)" In file included from sketch\Marlin_main.cpp:47:0: sketch\machinesettings.h: In member function 'bool MachineSettings::has_saved_settings(uint8_t) const': machinesettings.h:24:87: error: operands to ?: have different types 'MachineSettings::t_machinesettings*' and 'bool' bool has_saved_settings(uint8_t index) const { return (index < MAX_MACHINE_SETTINGS) ? settings[index
  12. Hi all, I think there is an option in Cura to prevent extruding material when moving over the part for top and bottom layers but I am not able to find it. Can you point me to the right option(s)? I would like to avoid the crisscrossing connections between the perimeters shown in this picture to get nicer top and bottom layers Best regards, Reiner
  13. Also check the feeder tension screw if it is too loose or too tight. The filament should only show very light to no markings from the feeder. If slips or grinds here, that could be an issue. Also check the diameter of your filament. On some brands, the filament is too thick for the bowden. Did you already replace the PTFE coupler? If that one is too old, you might see similar issues. But as @Smithy says, the bowden tube should be the first to check.
