  1. Maybe there's a setting for it, or maybe it's been discussed before, but I didn't find it 😞 Situation: I have a model that has a horizontal hole. Support is set to "everywhere", so Cura adds some nice supports that make sure the ceiling is as good-looking as the floor. However, the hole is so small that I can't get the support OUT without damaging the print. On bigger prints, I can use some pliers to tease it out. But in this case, the pliers are too big. Is there a way to have the support go beyond the model? Like a handle so you can pull it out.
  2. I've now tried all three suggestions - none of them had any visible effect (in the preview, at least). Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but what? Here's perhaps a better picture: The letter-to-be isn't printed yet, and Cura tries to leave a hollow where the "empty" will be - but it's so small that it makes no sense to me. Same goes for the ironing. I'd have to set the ironing inset to a negative value to get it to cover everything - but then it'll likely ruin the edges.
  3. I've also submitted a feature request on GitHub, but I can't upload pictures there, so I'm adding a thread here as well. https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/6555 Basically, when printing objects with staged "top" layers (think stairs), Cura will try not to create skin whereever there is an additional layer on top. I want it to create skin across the whole layer, because for small prints it's likely a waste of time, and it doesn't look good (with ironing on, for example). Here's an example from Cura: The letters in the middle are now one
  4. I'm using Cura 4.2.1 (Windows 10). Recently I bought an Ender 3 to go along with my Wanhao i3. For the Wanhao, the nozzle size setting is where I expect it - in the machine settings extruder tab. However, for the Ender 3, the nozzle size setting is not there but inside the filament type selection (the drop-down right of printer in the main screen). Why? I don't really mind either place, but I do like consistency. Wild guess - traditional and/or because those profiles are not from Ultimaker and the location of nozzle size isn't hardwired?
  5. Apart from the obvious, I mean. Are they part of any normal Cura installation, or are they relicts of upgrades because I had a previous version installed? (I honestly can't remember if I had version 2.1 installed or not. The upgrade 2.1. to 2.2 is there, though. ) The progression isn't without gaps, so it could be either way...
  6. (I realize this is a necro, but this posting comes up at top for my google search, so I'm adding my answer.) A way that seems to be quite easy is to save an empty project (File->Save) which will include the printer settings. Then open (again, via File->Open) that project, and you'll be asked if you want to update or create a new profile and printer. Create new and change the settings there. I've done this just now with the new Cura 4.1 , but older versions should be able to do that as well, since there is a comment from 2018 on GitHub: https://github.com/Ultimake
  7. Yes, that seems to work (haven't printed yet, but the GCode clearly has no temp settings anymore). Thank you! It's going from one extreme to the other, IMO, but it does work.
  8. It would be nice if it were possible to disable temperature control for the nozzle, similar to how it is with the bed. I'm using OctoPrint, and I preheat the nozzle - and sometimes I like to try different temperatures without having to re-slice the model, or send custom g-code in-between. I seem to remember that it was possible in previous versions (i.e. old Cura), and there was a discusson on GitHub about it, where it was said that there is a setting somewhere for that - I didn't find it, though, so maybe it's in the underlying json files? In any case, I think it
  9. I downloaded the latest Cura Beta again, and as before, I've to fill out a questionaire. I can see why you'd want to track what your software is used for, but why do I have to answer the same questions every time I download the program? I've even signed in beforehand, hoping I'd avoid it. Sorry if this has been posted before - I tried to search for it, but it seems I can't find the "Search in this subforum" button. (Or the "Create a thread in this subforum" button for that matter. I had to select the forum for this thread manually.)
  10. A checkbox would be least ambigous, therefore preferable. Although normally I'd assume that a search option within a thread only applies there. But I am mostly used to phpBB style forums, so that may be just me.
  11. Is it possible to add a way to search within a thread? I like to search within a long thread before posting something, but I don't like to click through 49 pages to check every page. (As I would have to do in this thread, to see if someone already asked for this.)
