  1. To reinforce, or perhaps just to reiterate, this addition of 5 C to my nozzle temperature could actually have damaged my print head, because I was already running a nozzle temperature that was already right on the line between what the PTFE liner could sustain, while printing PETG, and what it couldn't sustain without cooking the PTFE liner. I'd be pretty upset if my liners got cooked, and a nozzle clogged up and ruined a print, and necessitated me taking my print head again just to replace a cooked PTFE liner, just because someone on the Cura team thought it would be really clever to add 5 C
  2. Oh wow, I had no idea. Yeah, adding 5 C by default to the starting temperature is just ludicrous. Why 5 C? What about different materials? What about different build surfaces? What about the fact that people have already tweaked their settings and arrived at settings and profiles and whatnot that work for them? And then the new Cura version steps in and makes a decision for them and changes things up. Wow. If this is in any way a democracy, then I vote NO. Don't ever, EVER change my settings by default with a new version of the program. Just don't do it. If you want to give me new options
  3. I recently switched from 2.4 beta to 2.4 beta 2, and I've started seeing a new problem that I've never before seen in the 6 or 7 months I've been using Cura. The nozzle temperature is showing up in the gcode file 5 C higher than it was set in Cura 2.4 beta 2. I routinely set my PETG nozzle temp to 245 C, and was surprised to see my temp was at 250 C. I manually set it to 245 and continued that print. Then my next print was at 250 C, and my next. I have looked around inside of Cura to make sure that I was doing it correctly, and I was. The bottom line is I am having either to manually set my
  4. The Cubic Subdivision feature, one of the marquee features of the 2.4 Beta, still doesn't work on my machine. Others chimed in saying they saw this too. I uninstalled the original 2.4 Beta version and installed the new version that came up a week ago. On my machine all that shows up of the infill, when set to Cubic Subdivision, regardless of the percentage, is a single line in the upper left arm of this quadcopter body. My machine is an Intel i7 6900 with 32gb of RAM running Windows 10 64-bit, anniversary addition with all the latest Microsoft updates. Video card is NVidia 1080 with most r
  5. Hmm, I wonder what could be different about the devs' machines that makes this feature work, but on our machines it simply doesn't work at all. This is a brand new installation, and my settings aren't unreasonable at all. It's really strange. They wouldn't have released this beta and announced this feature if it didn't appear to them to be working, yet for at least some of us it simply fails to work, and doesn't announce any errors or anything. It's just not there. I actually installed the 2.4 beta specifically for this feature. I use Cura most of the time for most of my prints, but I also u
  6. Same was happening for me. I uninstalled 2.3 and then moved out the directory under Users/name/appdata/local/cura (or whatever, I'm going from memory). Then it came up fine. I'm still not seeing cubic subdivision infill show up though in the layer view. This is a bummer, because this feature is the only reason I uninstalled 2.3 and installed 2.4 beta to begin with.
  7. First, thanks for your reply! No it's not a typo. Cubic and Cubic Subdivision are two separate infill types. When I have infill set to Cubic or any other of the usual infill types they show up in layer view, the model weight reflects the infill material, etc. Only when set to Cubic Subdivision does the infill simply not show up at all. Here are screenshots. First shot shows normal cubic infill as displayed partway through this model in layer view. Next shot shows cubic subdivision infill type selected, and nothing shows up but some strange line through the upper left arm of the quadcopter
  8. I just got Cura 2.4 Beta installed and running, and am eager to test out cubic subdivision. When I set that as my infill type, then view the model in layer view, I see no infill lines at all. Also the calculated weight of the print is what it would be if there were no infill. When I change infill type to cubic or any other type of infill I see the infill in layer view as I would expect. Is there something I'm missing here? If Cubic Subdivision obviously didn't work they wouldn't have shipped the 2.4 Beta with it as if it were working, so something's going wrong here. What I haven't tested y
