  1. I have to admit that I'm not a Cura user, but use CEL Robox Automaker, which uses Cura as slicer, so the following is a request without knowledge whether such a feature might already exist in Cura. The common method to avoid Elephant feet in 3d prints is – other than tweaking the (first layer) settings for bed temperature, nozzle height and material flow – to model a chamfer at the bottom with e.g. 0.5 mm height at a 45° angle. The problem with this chamfer is that you sometimes forget to add it before exporting the model as STL depending on the geometry and
  2. I just read about the Cubic subdivision infill feature introduced in Cura 2.4 and instantly thought about having had the same idea some time ago for support structures with a larger footprint: Think of starting with few rectangles at the print bed and then subdivide every X layers as closer it gets to where the support is needed. It involves some sagged or even failed bridging on the first layers of each subdivision, but those bridges will heal themselves using the consecutive layers on top. This enhancement (I tend to call it Cascaded Supports) would save quite some time and filament on vol
  3. I don't own an Ultimaker, but several CEL Roboxes. The printer is really excellent, easy-to-use, very versatile with interchangeable tool heads (dual material just released, drag knife under development, laser engraver and paste extruder on the horizon) and quite affordable. The custom-built AutoMaker software relies on Cura for slicing, which is why I'm posting my question in this forum: I've spotted not only on mine, also on other people’s Roboxes on very fine prints (20 micron layers) the phenomenon of tiny rims, vertically reoccuring approx. every 5 layers. The precision with which the r
