  1. Hello. I am having some trouble creating a profile for my Ditto Pro printer in Cura. I continuously get these gaps in the Benchy's hull where the seam starts. https://imgur.com/a/pDlsq I used the same general print settings with the printer's stock software (Tinkerine Suite) and those gaps are not present. Do you have any advice on what I can do to eliminate these gaps? If you require any information/settings to troubleshoot this, I'm happy to share them.
  2. Not sure why but Cura is lagging more and more every time I launch it. Opening Cura takes more than a minute and there's a very noticeble lag with every task I do within the software. I've reset my computer, uninstalled, and reinstalled Cura but find the same problem.
  3. Hello UltiMakers. I'm new to this forum and somewhat fresh with 3D printing. I was hoping someone can provide me with some guidance as to creating a printer profile in Cura. I'm supporting a makerspace that is part of our community library. We deployed 3D printing with Tinkerine DittoPros. Although these were good machines, it was obviously that they were missing some integral features. We recently purchased an Ultimaker 2 in hopes to move in this direction. It would be very beneficial for us if we were able to streamline the software that we use with our two printer models. We offer workshops on how to use our printers and if we could get away from having to use the Tinkerine Suite for our DittoPro and Cura for our ultimaker I believe it will be a big plus for us. The Question I'm having difficulty creating a printer profile in Cura. I'm pretty sure my issue stems from the Start and end GCodes. I tried the profiles provided by tinkerine's support, but they didn't seem to work. I also went into the Tinkerine Suite program file and found a preferences file with start and end gcodes and used those and they also did not work. The start and end gcodes I obtained from the preference file are located below. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can start to define my printer profile. At this point I'm not even sure what information I should be providing. Thanks! start.gcode = ;Sliced {filename} at: {day} {date} {time} ;Basic settings:; Layer height: {layer_height} ; Walls: {wall_thickness} ; Fill: {fill_density} ; Speed: {print_speed} ; Temperature: {print_temperature} ; Filament Diameter: {filament_diameter} ; Support Structures: {support} ; Support Angle: {support_angle} ;Print time: {print_time} ;Print weight: {filament_weight}g G1 Z0.2 E0 F2000 G1 X65 E7 F1500 G1 X12 Y2 E14 F1500 G92 E0 ;G1 E-3 F1000 end.gcode = ;End GCode M104 S0 ;extruder heater off M140 S0 ;heated bed heater off (if you have it) G91 ;relative positioning ;G1 E-1 F300 ;retract the filament a bit before lifting the nozzle, to release some of the pressure ;G1 Z+0.5 E-5 X-20 Y-20 F{travel_speed} ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even more G1 Z0.2 E-4 F2000 ;move Z up a bit and retract filament even more G4 P600 ; dwell time of 900 ms G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops, so the head is out of the way G91; use relative G1 Z80 F3000; drop 80mm M106 S0; turn off fan M84 ;steppers off G90 ;absolute positioning preswitchextruder.gcode = postswitchextruder.gcode = replace.csv = ;LAYER:1 ;LAYER:1 M104 S220
