  1. In the top level menu: settings -> printer -> manage printers, select machine settings. At least from Cura 2.3 onwards you can change the nozzle diameter of your configuration. For easy selection you can create multiple machine instances with different nozzles sizes. Alternatively change the Line Width in the print setup, this also works.

  2. Ok, that seems to work.

    I learned that line width is normally automatically derived from nozzle diameter, for all machines types (top level UI or machine config). You can indeed set line width from the top UI dialog by overrulling the automatic value set. Then all other parameters are derived from this value. The parameter is stored, so kept upon next use of Cura.

    Thank you Neo!

    P.s. it still seems a bit artificial and limited to make this difference in user interaction between the various ultimaker models.

  3. Hi,

    I recently upgraded from Cura 15.04 to version 2.3. I'm the proud owner of an Ultimaker Original+ which I modified to include an Olsson block.

    I noticed in Cura 2.3 that the top level interface dialog box "nozzle size" setting has disappeared. It seems only available for the 2+ versions, and deeply hidden away in machine settings interface for other models. Does anyone know:

    1) How to get around this for my specific machine (O+ with Olsson), i.e. get this top level UI setting back?

    2) Will it be back in future upgrades of Cura, is it on the backlog?

    P.s. I noticed some discussion on the forum, but only related to version 2 machines.

  4. Hi all,

    I recently designed and printed a piano book stand. Using colorFabb Woodfill, showing off with my Ultimaker Original+ printing at a whopping speed of 150 mm/s. Total print time for the object is about 44 hours.

    See timelapse video at:

    I used this for the colorFabb time-lapse competition. So voting for me (entry tlc_piano) is of course appreciated ;)

    Printfiles have been uploaded to youmagine.



  5. To save multiple objects in Fusion360:

    * first make sure the objects you intend to save are visible, and the objects you do not want included in the file are not visible.

    * select the toplevel filename in the browser using right-click.

    * then select "save to STL"

    * in the pop-up menu you can choose between one file with multiple objects, or multiple files with one object each.

    I still think you will need to design some small thin connection between the socket joint and ball which you can break after printing, as starting to print from mid-air will probably not work ;)
