  1. What would be the equivalent directories under windows? I notice there are a few places, AppData/Local and AppData/Roaming. Roaming seems to be the bulk of it, but I can not seem to get my print settings to carry over. I tried placing the the AppData/Local into the .config/cura with no luck. I also seem to have a cura folder under .cache, so I have three, one is .cache, .config, and .share.
  2. Has anyone tried this? I dual boot between windows and linux. I hate having to boot into windows to make a print when I am currently working in linux. I copied my cura folder AppData in windows into the .local/share/cura just to see if it would pick up the settings. It seems some settings came over while others did not. Settings like which print settings I have hidden or shown did not carry over. It seems my custom print profiles got picked up. Im wondering what locations cura uses when loading so i can link them in linux to the windows locations so "I hope" I can just boot back and forth and have all my settings shared between boots. It seems cura uses more than just the location in Appdata. Has anyone tried this with success without corrupting something?
  3. That is a good point, which one are they using really? The table uses right, and the model uses left, so which one is it? By standard, I mean the one taught in every textbook for Cartesian coordinate, what every ( as far I a know) Horizontal mill uses as its coordinate system. And for the most glaring obvious reason to fix it, because you mentioned it : The right handed coordinate system has the answer "right" in it....its the "right" one, as apposed to the left, which is the "wrong" one 😁
  4. Thanks for spotting that mouse zoom option. Love it.
  5. I have to say I strongly disagree. It doesn't matter where your printer origin is or the center of the bed is. Y+ should be UP and Y- should be down. Just like a Mill, just like a graph. Thats the standard. Cura has the X and the Z correct. X+ to the right, Z+ towards the top. Y+ "should" be UP (towards the back of the table) Just like a standard XY graph, with X axis to you right, and Y axis going up. Even if I move my printer bed origin to the center of the table, the Y-axis is still backwards. Im telling you, the coders have screwed something up. I just dont know why nobody else seems to see the problem. Maybe they know about it, but its so heavily depended on how it is that it would be a major haul to change it? I don't know. Either way, its wrong. Y+ should be up. To say otherwise, we might as well just make X+ to the left, and Z+ towards the table.
  6. I wish I knew. Its possible I guess I have something jacked up. Don't know how I could though. I setup my print as a custom printer and set my nozzle and bed size and that is it. Check out the pic. The table has the Axis orientation correct, with Y+ going front to back, but if you look at the model, the Y-Axis has the plus going backwards. Even when you move the object, the location in the Y-Axis from origin is also backwards. When I move it towards the front of the table (closer to you), its reading a positive shift when is should be a negative. I brought this up a long time ago too. If its a setting I have and can change that would be fantastic.
  7. No coasting is not enabled. Didnt even have it turned as visible in the options. But what is strange, after going to a pre set of values using the (extra fast) setting, that resolved the issue it seems. Now even when I go back to my saved values, its slicing ok. Like something was stuck.
  8. Well I just picked one of the pre set print settings of .3mm (extra fast) and the problem went away. So I must have had some setting messing it up.
  9. Yes, I is intended to be a cover for something. I was going to print it translucent and have the text appear thru the inside. First time I ever tried to print something that I wanted a single wall and also some solid. Im getting the same thing every time but it different locations. My printer is configured for a .6mm nozzle. I tried changing the Line width to .5 and the Wall thickness to .5. I honestly don't know which one to change, one or the other or both. I just changed both and still get the gaps. I noticed when I increased the layer height through the gap shrunk, but it was still there. Could you maybe share a saved project with the settings you used so I cans see what I am missing?
  10. Hey there smartavionics. Thanks for providing a download to a patched version of cure to allow single wall printing. I just came across this issue myself and landed be here at this very long forum post. Question for you, Do you know if this gap here in the corner (circled with a ?) is part of your patch, or another setting? I tried a bunch or settings and could not get this to disappear. I attached the model if you wanted to see if it further put your patch to the test. Cover.stl
  11. First I would like to start of by saying thank you to who ever and all who updated the UI in cura. Currently the beta is a dream to work with as far as manipulating the model and rotating the workspace. 3.x was so sluggish and such a horrible performer trying to zoom in and rotate the workspace, especially when you have sliced data on the screen. So excellent work to who ever fixed that HUGE problem. Now the suggestion? I noticed the parameters section is not in a drop down menu of sorts. It would be nice to be able to expand that further down the page if possible, and have it remember the settings. Having a small window with a long list of scrolling sort of sucks. Also, when monitoring, the layer number slider would seem better positioned to the left of the print parameters and not to the far right of the screen. Also the new file menus seem to be of a particular font and size where they all seem to run together and its a bit hard to easily see their separation. Also, the ability to zoom into the workspace where the current mouse position is, similar to other cad software. And the complaint! The Axis identifiers that appear when you click a model "should" mimic the printer coordinates. Meaning as it is now, the Y-Axis identifier is backwards. The arrow points in the negative direction and when you move in the Y-axis, the position relative to the table zero, is positive. To clarify, when the model moves to the front or near side of the table, the Y-Axis position should be displayed negative of zero (currently it displays positive), and when you move the model to the rear or far end of the table, the Y-Axis should display positive from zero (currently it displays negative). This has been going on since the dawn of time it seem, why cant this be corrected? Its not correct...yes it functions and we can print, but its not correct. (My OCD kicking in). Thats all. Again. Awesome job on improving that UI performance.
  12. Same thing happened. I moved the z up a ways slowly and noticed it swaying as the threaded rod spun. Pretty sure this is my issue.....and if it’s not, it’s “a” issue and needs to be fixed. Hopfully it clears this mess up.
  13. nothing obvious has changed. The fan turned on after just a few layers and was on for the entire print. I printed two of these, one with no cooling fan for the entire part, and one with cooling fan for the entire part. Both resulted in a mess right after the part began to angle in smaller. If its an electronics thing and time, I am going to print two items on the table with the same settings. If it’s a time and heat or electronics failure, the poor print should show itself earlier in the print. I don’t know what else to try.
  14. Yes I am using Cura. I haven’t looked at the layer view in software. I’ll do that and see if something stands out. I didnt see anythig. Looks the same at the top as it does at the bottoms. Something is changing near the top. Could it be heat getting trapped in inner parts as the duct begins to close making it hotter than normal? grasping here.
  15. It’s not an ultimaker. Its a coreXY style where the table moves up and down. Its pla, yes. Z axis screws are clean, and there is no filament binding going on. I was going to say it looks like under extrusion to, but I am not sure why, if that’s it, why it’s happening. I thought maybe the fillament was clogging and the extruder was having trouble pushing, but I looked at the fillament and it’s got no signs of slippage. Since i I printed the same model twice, would it be electronic in nature? somethjng taking that long to heat up and begin causing issues? Is this even possible?
