    Ultimaker Cura 3.3 | Stable

    Build volume error. I can see it only AFTER i send job to printer. Why ? Why is the error not seen while slicing ? It is about raft for PC ultimaker. UM3 CURA 3.3.1

    First step was 0.8 AA and 0.25 AA cores. FDM printers will always be superior to SLA printers because of hard materials. I don't think will be an SLA that will print with carbon fiber, I think now you understand my point of vue. By the way, before S5 came out, i did say that the XY axle should be longer to use all the buid plate no matter what combinaition of cores you choose.

    I think is time to speak about AA cores for hard materials (abrasive ones)
  6. What is the real resolution improvement S5 versus UM3 ?
  7. From what i see it will use the entire build plate no matter what combination of nozzle and material you choose ? (i did recommended that)
  8. Poly lactic acid (PLLA) Policaprolacton (PCL) Can be used with Ultimaker 3 ? And if so, what profile should be chosen ?

    What is the smallest thing you have made?

    H0 scale locomotive buffer
  10. I have forget , somehow a little bit longer axle so the print head could use all the build plate , no matter if one AA core , or core AA + BB is used . (blind zones in Cura preview).
  11. Ultimaker PC filament (black - white) with only 60 degree bed ?

    UM3 firmware - filaments

    No problem. I'l override.

    UM3 firmware - filaments

    I think is necessary to put in firmware the same tipe of materials that are in Cura. It is about Ultimaker filaments. UM3 see PC (generic) because polycarbonate white has no NFC, but in Cura i can select Ultimaker PC white. For that reason it is stupid always to go to that page "Print jobs" and press override.

    0.5 plugin. (downloaded) Yes macro. A way to detect if Cura is already open.
