    Self leveling/bed calibration?

    The last time I calibrated my UM2 was after I'd changed the bed... You shouldn't need to re-calibrate before each print.

    Plugins in Cura 14.12.1

    oops! Must have picked up something somewhere... Guess I'll just have to stick with TweakAt...

    Plugins in Cura 14.12.1

    No. It comes as standard with 14.12.1.

    Plugins in Cura 14.12.1

    Some progress. It seems to be a problem with the Starting Temperature plugin. If I don't use that, the TweakAt works fine.

    Plugins in Cura 14.12.1

    Found the plugins, they're in /usr/share/cura/plugins. Tried copying them to ~/.cura/plugins, but they still don't work :-|

    Plugins in Cura 14.12.1

    Yes. I've also checked directory permissions & they're OK.

    Plugins in Cura 14.12.1

    I'm sure I'm missing something... I installed 14.12.1. The plugins appear OK & I can set the required entries ( love the start temperature!) but nothing appears in the gcode. No TweakAt, no temperature change. If I click the Open Plugin Location button, the directory's empty. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I'm running Debian Wheezy. The plugins worked fine in 14.09.

    Thanks. I'll have another play tomorrow.

    I'm just having a go with S3D. Is there any way for S3D to put values into the startup code? For instance: M109 S{print_temperature}. Can the {print_temperature} be substituted with the real value?
  11. I used a 3d engraver (Roland TS30) to mill them from carving wax. The finish is better than you ( or at least I!) could get with 3d printing. I've not heard of lost pla casting. I'll have to look into that.

    What is the ultimaker 2 frame made out of?

    Or use a router bit with a roller guide on the end. Then just follow the edge of the board.

    Buying a Ultimaker 2

    Everything you need to print is included, including SD card & a reel of filament, even a glue stick for the bed. You'll need to download the Cura software and you'll need software to produce the 3d models in the first place.

    Phantom Files

    Has anyone else had problems with phantom files on the SD card (UM2)? Duplicate files, files which only appear in the printer, not when the card's in the computer? I'm running Debian Linux. I tried 5 time just now to print a job & got the wrong thing every time. I ended up re-formatting the card...

    Rusted Bed?

    Could be oil from production. The guide bars are oiled...
