    Got it. Thanks for all of your work on this Thomas. I may have an opportunity to test it out over the weekend.

    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    Of the two, which one is the correct one to use with SWX 2018 running on Windows 10 Pro and Cura 3.4.1?

    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    Thomas, Sorry for not jumping in here sooner. Had a project that had to get out by Monday. Where can I download 0.6.0 to try it?

    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    Sorry Thomas. I don't understand the question. As you can see, changing the units has no bearing on the deviation value. What am I missing? That said, I really like the look of the UI . . .?

    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    Cool . . . ? I am still using Cura 3.4.1 because 3.5 .x was / is so broken. Will the new version be available through the Toolbox Plugin checker? Let me know if you're looking for a tester. I'm on Win10 Pro, SWX 2018.

    Importing STL into Sketchup

    Interesting. I had no idea SketchUp would even read an STL file. Anyway, wouldn't it be just easier to have the architect send you the files in a more usable format?

    3DS SolidWorks plugin (0.5.6)

    Welcome back from your world travels. Hope you at least did a little sight seeing and relaxing . . . Thanks for the update Thomas. Cura 3.5 is so "buggy" I have un-installed it and continue to use 3.4.1. Your plugin V0.5.5 works just fine in Cura 3.4.1. What is the new version number of your plugin, and what improvements were made? Cura 3.5 was not ready for prime time IMHO. Pretty disappointing. ☹️

    New: Ultimaker Cura 3.5

    SolidWorks plugin no longer works with Cura 3.5 Fails both from inside Cura 3.5 when opening a SolidWorks file from the Cura File menu as well as from inside SolidWorks using the Cura macro. Worked fine in Cura 3.4.1 SolidWorks 2018 SP 4.0, Windows 10 Pro

    New UM3 measurements problems

    I must say Giovanni you peaked my interest with your cube measurements. I print most objects much larger than your cube but sometimes smaller threaded objects (neck finish of bottle) where a cap must be screwed on, and I never see the kind of variation you have described. Here are photos of a cube I printed that is .875" (7/8") on a side. I chose that size arbitrarily, but it is close to your cube. The Z is only off target by .0035" (0.09mm), and while the X & Y are some .012 (0.3mm) larger than the target, they are within .0015" (0.04mm) of each other. Z Axis. Y Axis. X Axis. Settings: .4 Nozzle, .2 Layer, Print speeds, outer wall 20mm/s, inner wall 30mm/s, 15% infill (Lines) Wall Jerk 3mm/s, travel speed 125, Print & Travel Acceleration Speeds 2000mm/s. Generic PLA at 205° As you can see I print pretty slow. I find accuracy is quite dependent on speed I don't think you can expect results much better than these figures from an FDM printer. Hope this gives you some insight into the capabilities of the UM3.

    Cubify Invent

    Here's what 3D Systems has to say: So I guess if it will run on Windows 8, it should be OK on Windows 10. The trial is a free download. What have you got to loose?

    Make this parts stronger

    I was not aware that the project was designed to be a printing challenge. Also I had no idea the parts could not be separated, for post printing assembly, for some unapparent reason. I was thinking more along the lines of good DfAM. While I have a UM3 Ext, and I assume you do as well, not everyone has the ability to print with dis-solvable PVA supports. Printing this part without that ability would be a real mess IMHO. As smartavionics said earlier: 3d printing, it's a tradeoff Anyway, just my 2¢ worth . . .
