  1. I spent the last two weeks trying to get a feeling for green-tec. (I tested the white one) It's a real cool material from technical parameters' but also haptical point of view. It's fully bio-degradeabe, doesn't produce any nasty fumes, withstands boiling water with ease and it's from a highly motivated Austrian start-up with outstanding customer support. And with the 25% discount-code they post on the RepRap forum it's a real alternative to ABS. But anyway ... I couldn't find a single setting which made this material stick on the heatbed of my Ultimaker 2+. Whatever setting I tried -
  2. Just filed this on GitHub: [2.1 beta] Layer processing & displaying much slower than 15.04.05 #728 Layer Processing speed of 2.1.beta is much much slower than in 15.04.05. In 15.04.05 during layer processing the portion of the object which has already been processed gets displayed. In 2.1.beta the platform stays empty until processing was finished by100%. After processing was finished stepping through the layers with Ctrl+Arrow-Keys happens nearly instantuous and seamless in 15.04.05. But in 2.1. beta there is an extreme delay every time you are stepping from one layer to the next
  3. A quick brainstorming: a bigger lampshade splitted up in printable sub-components always ends up in freeform surfaces; for this application transparency /translucency of single shell is essential (single shell Thaulman-BluPrint or BioFila-silk really looks gorgeos) ultralight body parts for RC-Models e.g. fenders, bonnets, wing-parts, etc. flat-springs for vibration damping of mechanical components; e.g. suspension brackets dust/moistur-seal electronic casing, with some sections printed single wall to allow shine-through of LED to be continued ...
  4. I mean I really don't insist on implementing his with spiralize - this was just an idea. But it would be really great if a slizer in the end would be capable of really slizing x-y-structures drawn with width=nozzle-size.
  5. During my internet-search I got the impression that many users are looking for such a feature. And wouldn't this be a "unique selling point" (alleinstellungsmerkmal) for CURA if it offered a smart solution for this applications?
  6. @ NicoLinux & Tinkergnome Thank's for your reply. I played a lot with " cheating" nozzle-size vs. wall-thickness , but as you also have noticed, this is far away from being straight forward and relyable. It really depends on the specific geometry of the "single layer surface" itself, and also how you place it on the print-table. I really couldn't find a systematic approach: in some cases designing a slightly thicker wall helped. In others cheating the nozzle size wider or smaller. And in some cases nothing helped! After having done lot's of investigations in the specific forums, I
  7. Hi! To print "vase-like" single-shell bodies in CURA the recommendet method is to draw a solid body and use the following settings infill = 0 wall-thickness = nozzle-diameter Black Magic = spiral This works excellent and gives really beautiful single shell hollow bodies. e.g. like this Wall thickness really is exactly nozzle diameter. But what if the body has no "closed" surface. Think about if above's hollow body in the end should be the lamp-shade for a wall-lamp. e.g. something like that So far I couldn't find a single settings in CURA which gave a result with wall-thicknes
  8. As far as I have tested tikergnome seems to be right. When loading a gcode file sliced for PLA & nozzle-size = 0.6mm the temperature is changed from 210° to 230°. For a 0.8mm nozzle it's 240° . This costed me quite some headake in the beginning, because I thought something's wrong with my system, because temperature was not set to 210° anymore. Selfspeaking parameter-names like suggested by tinkergnome would be much more unambigous. Would be great if ULTIMAKER could confirm that assumptions and whether they plan to change according to tinkergnome's suggestion?
