  1. My ADS-B Receiver station. Supplying FlightRadar24 and FlightAware with airplane flight data.
  2. To answer my own question: with a Print Speed of 70 mm/s and a Wall Speed of 24 mm/s for both hotends the corner parts of this model became straight as they should be.
  3. Hi Guys, what can I do to improve the corners of the part in the picture? I already tried reducing the speed from 70 mm/s to 30 mm/s, but no change. It is being printed on my UM3 with two 0.4 nozzles and PLA. Slicing done with Cura 4.7.1 Thanks for any advice, -pl
  4. Thanks for creating this very helpful document, I like it! BTW, there is an error in „Support distance priority“, where at one place there should be „Z overrides X/Y“ instead of „X/Y overrides Z“ Cheers, -pl
  5. Birdfeed holder, to attach the bird feeder to the new small tree in our garden, with branches too thin, but with a 40 mm diameter trunk. Fixed with two velcro stripes. Filament is Nylon transparent from Ultimaker, construction with Fusion 360.
  6. Actually I am having problems with "Pause at height" also: After loading a model into Cura 3.6.0 I add a post processing script "Pause at height" or "Filament change" for a change at a certain layer number. When during printing the printer (UM3) reaches that certain layer, it goes to pause and I can change the filament. When I resume the print after changing the filament, the (travel-)speeds seem to be different (very high) and there seems to be no more z axis advancements. Is anybody being successful in doing this or could it be some Cura problem (or am I just plainly st
  7. Not sure about that, because in this certain setup the horns are being used as tweeters, with low power input (the FRS 5 X drivers are suited for 5W). I think what you mean here is happening mostly for the lower frequencies with the airwaves transporting a lot of more energy, where material resonances can (and do) influence the sound. But a definitive answer would require some more measurements to check for resonance effects in the horn material. The horns definitely bundle the sound waves, which gives the speakers a very special directional characteristics (which I do not like).
  8. He left it as-is (and likes it). Regarding the layer lines effect of the horns, I just discussed this with a friend of mine who is a real analog audio guy and who designed and built the crossover network for the speakers (which turned out to be a real pain in the neck to optimize it) and did also a lot of measurements of the speaker system. In his opinion the acoustical effect of the layer lines is insignificant. My own tinnitus doesn't allow me to be an audio reference listener :-/ so I don't have an opinion on that.
  9. Thanks & have fun (see attachment)! 😁 Horn_4_3_v5.stl.zip (right now the guy who I made them for is offering the speakers @ebay: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Lautsprecher-Visaton-Gradient-prof-entwickelter-DIY-Lautsprecher/123572160771)
  10. Could somebody please have a look at this peculiar scaling behavior (see video screenshot)? When I rotate a model in Cura 3.6 and scale it in non-uniform way, then -- after the first non uniform scaling -- just by clicking into the scale value windows it changes object sizes in strange ways. I do not think that this is the intended way... please see video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/15S9pqEQmlUNl62u6c2E2yVKTOX-D4uT-/view?usp=sharing Thx, -pl
  11. That is not sufficient. Sometimes all you have is the STL file. (And yes, I know that you could import it into the modeling program, but it would be better to be able to measure distances within Cura. This would also be helpful in case you scale a model.)
  12. What about this for a slow startup on MacOS...? UM.VersionUpgradeManager._getUpgradeTasks [281]: Failed to get file version: ~/Library/Application\ Support/cura/3.6/cura.log contains an endless number of lines with this kind of messages. 2018-11-15 22:53:20,838 - INFO - [MainThread] UM.PluginRegistry.loadPlugin [422]: Loaded plugin FileLogger 2018-11-15 22:53:20,849 - INFO - [MainThread] UM.PluginRegistry.loadPlugin [422]: Loaded plugin LegacyProfileReader 2018-11-15 22:53:20,860 - INFO - [MainThread] UM.PluginRegistry.loadPlugin [422]: Load
  13. This is mine... brand new and up-to-date. And Cura 3.5x did run perfectly.
  14. Similar for me. On my 2018 MacBook Pro it takes about 2...3 minutes to start up, using 100% CPU. During this time it displays "updating configuration", before it eventually shows the GUI and becomes responsible. This behavior is reproducible. I guess Cura 3.6 needs some kind of serious tuning 😉 Btw., I like the Gyroid infill!
