  1. I thought that for the slicing tolerance of middle it slices all normal layers in the middle, but the initial layer at an offset. Example: 0.1mm layer height, 0.2mm initial layer height gives layers at the heights: 0.15 0.25 0.35 0.45 0.55 So the initial layer is sliced at a height of half the normal layer height below the initial layer height.
  2. I'm not sure anymore how I should help. I've said what I can, but mechamecha responded, but that driften off topic and now I don't know how to get back on topic.
  3. Settings always vanish when switching between printers. Settings are often printer-specific. This is how Cura was designed; it's supposed to work like that. So you are saying that the prime blob was already there in 4.1 and the only difference is that in 4.5 it moves down into the prime blob? Or is the whole prime blob new in 4.5?
  4. So what you do is set the line width to 200%, but set the flow to 50%, so that in the end the lines are extruded 100%, but spaces 200%.
  5. Have you checked the setting guide on this? Marketplace > Setting Guide > Install > Restart Cura Union Overlapping Volumes > Right click > Setting Guide
  6. Reduce their initial layer flow. Alternatively, adjust your bed height physically.
  7. That list looks quite complete. Skin is top/bottom. I'm surprised SKIRT is in there. I would have thought it would have been SUPPORT as well. Indeed travels and retracted travels are identified by looking at the E values. Cura doesn't use this when visualizing a gcode it has just generated. It's only the visualization when you load a gcode from file.
  8. The sequence is hard coded in the firmware of the machine. What you can do in Cura is disable The prime blob altogether. The downward movement of the nozzle is not exactly into the blob, but next to it. It's supposed to wipe the blob onto the bed.
  9. What your use-case? Why do you want a part of the model using fuzzy skin?
  10. Then the default settings for your printer include those setting values. Ultimaker doesn't check the validity of 3rd party default profiles; they are provided by the manufacturer or by hobbyists.
  11. The union only works if it's one model, not if it's multiple models. If you can select both volumes separately Cura will not union them. If you try to select one and you always automatically select both then Cura can merge them. It is therefore impossible to have per-object-settings and also use the unioning. If you want you can join several models into one model, by exporting them to one STL in Cura. If you then clear your build plate and load in the one STL with multiple volumes then they get unioned.
  12. This is not possible. I like Makers Muse's videos, though. You can merge bunnies by enabling the setting Union Overlapping Volumes, but it only works if those volumes are part of the same STL model. I wrote most of the CuraEngine code; I know quite well what is possible and what not. Take it from me that it is curerntly not possible to have partly fuzzy walls in a seamless way.
  13. I'm not sure what's going on. Build volume has always been a very eluding mistress. There are a lot of hardware tolerances and even software tolerances to take into account. In order to get the maximum out of Cura, you should set the platform adhesion to none and turn off support.
  14. I'm not sure where I should focus on in these photos. Can you please describe the problem and where in the boat these occur?
  15. You can do this quite effectively using blender.
