    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    Hey @XYZDesignPro, This is the version which is published but posted a link here before to the plugin package. This one is newer, then the one you can get via the Toolbox aka Marketplace..

    Ok, let's get it tested and fixed soon, so I can roll out the new release ­čśë

    Hey guys, you tested it already? Any issues faced? Thanks!

    Cura <-> OpenSCAD integration

    Well, so far the CIU is not designed to handle multiple meshes. So need to think about a good way how to do that. Will sit on this soon, because something like this will be also needed for SolidWorks <= 2017, because only earlier versions support 3MF, which has all different meshes bundled in one file. I will create a separate branch soon and do some first work, like creating a separate class, etc. I owe you some teamwork on this I think ­čśë

    Cura <-> OpenSCAD integration

    Hey rmi, I looked over the code and can at some point not follow how you are generating the different meshes.. I would have had expected that you generate different scad files and load them all, but I don't find the line where you are doing something like that. Additionally, I thought about making some cleanup. That means moving all your parsing code into a separate class. So we have all the basic functions and your extras on top. However, spent some time to fix the Cura PPA today, so might find time for this at a later time.

    Autodesk Inventor Plugin (0.1.5)

    Hmm, the plugin system shouldn't be the problem. There is something going wrong behind the scenes of the plugin. You already know how to attach a log to your message here, right? Make sure you remove it, reproduce the problem and attach it here then. Thanks!

    Drag and drop the file into Cura. That should do it. Regards from Huston, Texas

    You mean it does not run after installation?

    OpenCL for hardware-acceleration

    Hmm, ok. Then it is just like I read in articles and ebooks. ? At which time has it been discussed? .. or better ask on which version of OpenCL have these investigations been made? Personally, I really like the idea of using OpenCL. As far as I hear the coverage of OpenCL support shall (!) be not too bad anymore. Because what I personally dislike are solutions like CUDA, which only work (but very well, as I read) on Nvidia cards. Has any WIP code been ever released?

    Printcore UM 3

    @Smithy Kann ich nichts hinzuf├╝gen! ??

    Printcore UM 3

    Naja, also wenn nichts extrudiert wird, dann liegt es eher an dem Motor - also sofern das PVA nicht zerrieben ist. Falls doch w├╝rde ich vorschlagen den BB core einfach zu reinigen. Anleitungen gibt es genug. Beiz├╝glich deiner Frage zum Kauf: Also wenn du dir keine Sorgen machen willst ├╝ber die Justierung und dem Fakt, dass es dich unter umst├Ąnden viel Zeit kosten kann, dann greif zum 3dsolex. Naturlich kannst du die D├╝sen ersetzen, aber die Frage ist wie immer wie oft und wieviel du davon hast(?). Habe jetzt selbst keinen UM3, aber an meinem Drucker kann ich die D├╝sen welchseln, aber gemacht hab ich das nur ein mal, da ich daran interessiert war, wie es geht. Nun liegen weitere D├╝sen rum und ich wechsel die nicht aus ├ťberzeugung, dass es Zeitverschwendung ist. Daher mein Rat: Greif zu UM Hardware f├╝r problemloses Arbeiten, spare deine t├Ągliche wertvolle Zeit ein und investiere die in die sinnvollen Dinge des Lebens ?

    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    No, the function was there, but practically wrong data formats have been exchanged. How does it work for you? When using the same settings as in SolidWorks, is the quality the same? There was no unit defined for the deviation in the documentation, that's why I'm asking.

    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    Interesting.. Looks like there is a typo in the URL. It automatically redirects you then to a page, which seems to fit the best. Strange guess from the Wordpress plugin to take you to the OpenSCAD page ? Tested these links before posting them now: CuraSolidWorksPlugin-v4-2018-11-07T20_26_08Z.curapackage CuraSolidWorksPlugin-v5-2018-11-07T20_26_08Z.curapackage Sorry and enjoy! ?

    When using Cura 3.4.x, then V4. V5 is for Cura 3.5 and upwards.
