  1. Anytime I had layer shifting I cleaned and added lube to the rods and it sorted it. You may also want to make sure there is no slack in the belts either. But cleaning has worked for me for years. Luckily I've never had to do any other kind of maintenance. But i'd start at the easiest option. Its usually larger stuff this occurs on most but I guess it can effect anything.

  2. And today i applied a chrome paintjob, im a bit tired of plating for now. Its a big bigger than my jar so will be a pain. Just chromed it up instead. Mirror finished are very unforgiving and i rushed it a bit and touched it too often whe is was wet needing to keep respraying it. I decided to leave it after the third coat and just accept it as it was.

  3. Here is my Take on Takeshi 6ix9ine's diamond 'Finding Nemo' style shark medallion, such a cool design, had to make one! lol Props to the jeweller Jimmy Phan. 

    Just gotta plate this beast now, need more plating solution or a bespoke plating tank! but might just spray it for a change! 😛

     

    Designed so none of the teeth needed internal supports as it would be impossible to get them out after! Very happy with the result and the Acetone smoothing as well! This one did need infill though due to the open mouth cavity! Haven't used infill in aaaages for art. But it really does help acetoned models from splitting a lot.

  4. Ill try the union thing out then also is there a remove layer touching buildplate option or turn first layer into infill option as i really would like that for large models that i dont want to waste hours on building the base.

    And thanks again for the useful information! Ill be back if it doesnt work! Lol.

  5. Ah thanks for the info. I just tend to knock out tests quickly and cant be bothered to merge or create booleans as text in a box shouldnt be too challenging to print from historical attempts. I have an issue with stuff that alters way it did to previous versions unless its better  and this definitely isnt. So rather than waste time trying to solve a problem in didnt have in any previous version ill practice what i preach and just use the older version which i have no issue with other than interface problems.

    Are you 100% sure your model is watertight? I can have a look at it if you find a way to upload it somewhere.

     

    Yep its simply two extruded objects one inside the other. It appears (its fact) that cura 3.4 has no issues which is why i believe cura 4.4 is the problem.

    I already prited it from 3.4 wont 'upgrade' until this issue is sorted for obvious reasons, as i often use intersecting geometry.

  7. Just curious but does the new cura still have this issue? I'm using 4.4.1 but have now reverted back to 3.4.9.9 for obvious reasons. Top 4.4.1, bottom is 3.4.9.9 I guess ill uninstall 4.4 1 either way as I can't trust it anymore.

  8. Sorry i think this is in the wrong section!! how can i delete this post? and move it into coffee corner perhaps?

    Hi, 

    I got a Kaiser rostrum for photographing my prints, but i have no idea how to connect it to my wall, can i just rewire it to a regular socket? i have no idea what the colours are, line cables? its a old german plug.

    pics attached, i know the earth obvioulsy, but grey black and brown? no clue, im thinking greay is the actuator, and brown is live, and black i neutral but thats a blind guess. i rad there are line live neutral cables, what is a line 1 2 or 3 i have zero wiring experience?

     

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Good functional print!

    Its the only print im going to use everyday until a renovation! A true essential print! Only others i can think of would be taps, keys, knobs (lol) handles or light switches. Im sure there are many other personal ones but this truly made me appreciate having an ultimaker! Quicker than Amazon!

  10. Well not used ultimakers tough pla for a while. But i like it! It has a very smooth top surface. My toilet handle broke the internal ceramic holder after many years and because all hardware shops are closed....had no choice works like a charm! Made it a bit thicker just in case and forgot to taper it. But as i printed it solid i just sawed the end off. Job done! No acetone or sanding here. Solid as a rock!

  11. Close ups.... you know I love my close ups!

    Dr Hill from Re-Animator is the only filled model here hence not splitting further. Im pretty sure in fill would help as well. I talked with a few folk and some use modge podge as i use plaster of paris. Might be better but definitely more expensive!!!

     

    These splits can easily be filled with paint or putty. However I wouldn't use putty on detailed parts as its a nightmare to clean up.
