  1. Best example of how to ask the right question 😳!!! Separately from not not caring much about (saving) different materials, i apparently never read that FAQ 😎. This helps a lot of course ! Thank you tinkergnome and sorry for the late answer.
  2. Thank you very much @Diving Duck and @ahoeben for the workaround and further explanations!!! Since i wasn't printing that much different materials the last 2 years, i was wondering because my Ultimaker original (Marlin) somehow (somewhen) was showing Materials and the Ultimaker2 not. And it's no fun having 20 different materialsettings namend "custom1 - 20" on your UM2, because you're not able to export material settings/names ( didn't think about changing the printer 😎)... so now i know a little bit more about g-code flavor 🧐 Thank you guys!
  3. hmmm, sad that ultimaker don't support their old mashines in newer cura builds :-/...
  4. I recently updated to cura 4.5. But under preferences it doesn't show any materials, the Appdata->Roaming->cura->4.5 folder is empty. When i go to the marketplace it tells me all generic and unltimaker profiles are installed. i can install additional materials, they show up as xml files in materials folder, but somehow cura won't load them. can my ultimaker2 read material profiels in xml format? I already deinstalled every old versions and cleand my user account data, but nothing changed.
  5. thanks gr5 for the explanation of cura versions and infos! i will go back to 14.7(?), from were i started with this project. is there a chance, that this bug is getting fixed in the future? would be great !!!
  6. here is another one (at the endframes)its cura 15.04.2.but the problem was also there with earlier versions (problem is persistent since a few month i guess since 15.04 ?).
  7. well it's not easy to see in the video- its in sec.11-12. the the nozzle is moving a step back and you can also hear it, this happens not regular, what is also shown in the photo. i turned spiralized on, because i didn't wanted a z scar , and thats why my wall thickness is not 0.8 (with 0.4 wall thickness the wall is too translucent) i am trying to find another video, but its difficult to capture...
  8. i am wondering why my nozzle does an irregular "backstep"( on UMO and also UM2) with this PLA print? settings : layer:0.1mm walls:0.5 mm (more opacity) speed:20 temp: 200 spiralized: on any suggestions would be very appreciated. cheers imke
  9. hey thank you guys!!! well, i think its useful for me to have as much information as possible in a good working print file and i am lazy- sorry gr5 ;-)... ultiarjan, its a good exercise for me to learn gcoding! while trying to print a file from slicer i almost damaged my nozzle because it started right on the heated bed lever-so theres a serious need for me to use a proper start code- i will experiment with yours thank you for sharing !!!
  10. hello didier thank you very much for the 2 solutions! since i don't have achieved any good surface results in printing many pieces at once yet, i tried the cool head option, well some stringing is occuring, but this is easier to remove than to adjust the melted top. i am missing the temperature option for the UM2 in cura :*(...
  11. i am printing something with 50% infill 0.1 layer, 0.8 shell ,30 mm/sec and infill,50mm/sec, wondering why the top gets so "squished"? ok i saw that i accidently had the bottom/top thickness set to 0.5 but are there any other points to look after to avoid this rough top surface (already set the top surface speed to 20 mm/sec.) ???
  12. haha swisslike...i can imagine that, i will rather come to do some lasercuttings next week :wink:
  13. YES! i really had to bend the switch to be reached, so that its really curved right now. no errors since then! i also thightened a mean pulley nut on the x-motor shaft (never, ever trust a friend who tells you he already did that ;-) ), so no more x shifting and except from some reading problems with the sd card, the "childerens disease" of my printer are quite manageable i guess :-). regarding tomorrow @ fablab i am not sure if i can make it :-(... (preparing to visit the printshow in berlin though ;-) )
  14. ok it seems the cable and switch is ok. i will try more to bend it and take a look @ my old switches from the UMO ... edit: completed the startup wizzard, after bending it seems to print again (fingers crossed) thank you jonny, see u maybe on tuesday (fablabmitgliederversammlung) ;-) !
  15. thank you very much for your fast and detailed reply :smile:!!! yes i manually moved the printhead, restarted, and then the printhead is moving diagonally (!) to the left corner,stopps and stucks while trying to move to the left... i got a multimeter today and with your instruction i am going to try testing continuety tomorrow. with the bending iam not quite sure...i already bend it away from the switch but didn't try to flatten the bend inside...
