  1. Just want to throw this in here over making a new thread, I'm loving the Adaptive Layers. Really the next thing that would take this to the next level is getting it to play nice with supports (normal and tree).
  2. I like the concept of it even for the UM2 been able to see a list of files you have on the build plate is very handy. Here is some feedback When you add a second stl to the build plate and right click new built plate, and they have sliced the first build plate says 0 hours 0 minutes for print time. Arrange to all build plates could be worded better as from what I can tell it just merges all the plates to one. Save the build plates with a Cura project if I make a set of build plates for a bunch of batch jobs but want to edit a setting or two every once and awhile w
  3. If its its to do with the stepper drivers and the TL-Smooths will fix it why would other slicers like S3D and Slic3r PE that I tried lessen the effect alot especially for PETG?
  4. Made no difference. Just want to bring this back up with more testing Cura is doing something weird and spent a good 4 days trying to work out why with no luck, This infill showing through effects PLA, ABS and really shows up in PETG the most. eg: Cura 3.1 Simplify3D 4 Both had the setting matched as best I could. 35mm/s Main Speeed 25mm/s Outer wall 245c nozzle (PETG) 75c bed 100% flow 4.5mm retraction 5% infill overlap tried to match the slow down speeds for layer time as
  5. Noticed the same thing, it also only effects the dark theme
  6. Okay fixed that error by merging in https://github.com/Ultimaker/cura-build-environment/pull/20 But now I'm getting this and have not been able to sort it out I tried installing setuptools using pip3 and installing python3-setuptools from the repos but nothing :/
  7. I kept getting stuck with the cura-build-environment I tried googling on how to resolve it but most of the stuff I found did not work.
  8. Hmm maybe I have done it wrong as I did not install cura I cloned the repos following Nallath guide he posted in one of the github issues. “Checkout Cura, Uranium, CuraEngine, LibArcus. Build LibArcus Build Cura engine Ensure Uranium is in your pythonpath. Run cura_app.py with python3 If complaining about dependencies, install those with pip. That's pretty much how i recently installed my new laptop.” maybe this method does not work on Ubuntu :/
  9. Hello, Has anyone run Cura from source on Ubuntu 17.10 (fresh install) I have hit a snag where cura_app.py can't find Arcus, I compiled libArcus following the instructions on the github $ mkdir build && cd build$ cmake ..$ make# make install Their is a Arcus.so file in /usr/local/lib/python3/dist-packages Original exception was:Traceback (most recent call last):File "cura_app.py", line 54, in import Arcus #@UnusedImportModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'Arcus'
  10. On that build Layer View does not work the models just stay grayed out. 3.0.4 did work? Could you post you logfiles please? After rebooting the system it started working their was nothing in the logs every looked normal.

  12. the default 2 walls, I have not played with "Infill Before Walls" yet but will give it ago. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:853358 I did reprint the model with some settings changed 3 wall, less infill, different layer height etc, and got the same results, here is the project file if that's any help. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1K9Wk1ELcb7qFxw9EmmBwrbBH9WI5TY_e
  13. Hello, I'm having issues when I slice with Cura I'm seeing some weird ghosting/artifacting in my prints, I done a test by copying the settings as best I could over to S3D (Speed, Shells, Top and Bottom layers and etc) and got pretty much no ghosting. Any idea on what Cura is doing? I used the stock CPE profile for Ultimaker 2+. Photo of Cura 3 print (it's way more noticeable when it was in the printer under it's lighting. Photo of S3D print
  14. Is this a bug but when printing with CPE the reg fan speed is set to 80% but the whole print it stays at 40% on the printer.
  15. Thanks, glad you like it. As to the line on the top/bottom, have you tried setting the combing mode to "no skin"? That's what I normally use and don't get nozzle marks on the top/bottom. Did not even know about that setting will check it out. so many settings pretty easy to get lost in what things do.
  16. @smartavionics Great work on the Optimize Wall Printing Order. Really liking Cura 3, Only one thing I would like to see fixed is the lines you get on the top and bottom from where the print head makes a fast move over them.
  17. Haha nah it's the normal disclaimer in the footer of all their emails some companies use. Like: You may not use, disseminate, distribute or copy this message nor disclose its contents to anyone. Etc So i dont want to do the wrong thing by them as the turn around was really fast and great service from them.
  18. Update: Issue fixed, unfortunately the emails exchanged are confidential so I can not distribute the information of what the issue might/was of been.
  19. I'll update on this I have contacted my reseller and they are going to organise a pickup of the printer to get it checked out as it's still in the Australian 1 year warranty period. I'll update again when more information comes in.
  20. Really thinking it has to do with something in the head here is anther video. If I just touch anywhere on top of the head while printing noise goes away. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OoXPhnS_z8
  21. Had a good look and none of the belts contact the blocks. Starting to think maybe its a bearing :(as nothing looks like its coming into contact and none of the belts look like there slipping. going over my videos with this one I was stumped as to why holding the fan mount stopped the sound, it looks like there is some slack with the shaft and the bearing and makes like a clicking sound. like the slack/play is a 45 degree angle movement on the Y shaft at the head.
  22. While moving the head i can't see the belt slip when it makes the noise.
  23. Hope these are okay. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1rgZdoCKJgimObnHyJ8yhcrkHDzZtKfulGw https://drive.google.com/open?id=1inyhBW-D2nroGJPyGm0DXl-jjWmQMg7jjQ https://drive.google.com/open?id=1TseGaP785_Hpr75Xh474cfhHMwGOBntYRg https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Hmlo9FUOUi06xLUFTe2_8-7SFRVQR2icyw https://drive.google.com/open?id=17cPiP58_QVoOn9GQs8owFoNQwGPt6ehlFQ https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ClMsKBYlHXHDWtAIqwr0pvE_vJtC5w7SDg
  24. Okay was in the process on putting an a differnt fan mount and well we can rule that out still makes the sound even with the fan mount off https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUSFoQgey3A just tried pushing the belt sideways while moving the head the rattle/grind is still there.
  25. I might give it ago (just putting the fan-mount on) can't hurt the worst that can happen is I put the original one back on. Also want to thank you so much for your time in replying to my topics. No problem I try to help, I always learn something out of it Btw, just to be sure sure... Since you hold the fancap when it moves, maybe the sound comes from the linear bearings? Just to be sure before you disassemble anything Anyhow, if bending a bit the metal fix it, at least you know that the issue is that and nothing else. Cheers! bending the bit of metal did not fix it but doing a a
