  1. This version is old and unsupported now. Please update to 4.5 and see if the issue persists.
  2. Good to hear progress has been made. @mcrompton, if a plugin for this is something you'd like to explore, there's relevant documentation here.
  3. I raised this in our development standup and it's unlikely we're going to support it on our roadmap, but contributions are always welcome. I'd suggest opening an issue on our github.
  4. There's a specific setting in Cura to apply it to the initial layer only. It's called 'Initial Layer Horizontal Expansion'.
  5. There are default profiles for the 2+ in Cura. If using PLA these have been tested to achieve good results. Another tip: if you want to change settings in the profiles, you can also import export your profiles, this saves you having to type them out here 😉 Preferences > Materials > Import/Export
  6. We don't support this printer (besides a contributed profile in Cura) and therefore can't test things, but a few basic things to try: - Check your z height calibration. If too low, material will be squashed between the nozzle and build plate/subsequent layers. - Set horizontal expansion settings in Cura - this can compensate for initial layers spreading outwards (known as the 'elephants foot' effect). Hope this helps.
  7. @ShopGeezer It sounds like you're looking for this: Alternatively (in Windows) open an Explorer window navigate to: %appdata%/cura/4.2 Both of these methods get you to the same place but the first is probably easier. I've used 4.2 in this explanation because that's what you said you were using above, but the method is the same for other versions, too. In that folder, you will find cura.log. Send that to us, it will contain a load of debug info about Cura which we can analyze. Let me know how you get on. The thread is pretty off topic now, so consider opening a new thread for your specific issue.
  8. Interesting, wasn't aware of this format. We don't have one of these printers to test so it's difficult to support this printer, especially if they decided to use a proprietary file format. If the profile contributor wants to add support to Cura for their profile, then you can get in contact with them for this. It was contributed by this person it seems: https://github.com/HUNIBEST-HyVISION Just a hunch for a workaround: what happens if you zip the output gcode and change the zip extension to .hvs? Our .ufp format works in a similar way. It could be that there's some extra printer-specific metadata in their format. Hope this helps
  9. Update: I added some release notes, too
  10. Hi everyone, Ultimaker Cura 4.5 beta just went out into the wild. Get a preview of new features and help us gather as much user feedback as possible. The stable release will go live two weeks from today. The focus of this release is integration with our brand-spanking-new web-based Marketplace. Use the web Marketplace to add plugins and print profiles (a.k.a packages) to your Ultimaker account, completely outside of Cura. When you log in to your account within Cura, you'll be prompted to synchronize packages if differences are detected in your installation. The result? A simplified experience, without the hassle of manual package installs. Synchronize your packages on multiple workstations. Packages are tied to your account, so if you’re logged in within Cura 4.5 or later, (and the package maintainer keeps their package compatible with the latest SDK), your packages will be with you. What about community contributions? This release merges a great deal of pull requests from our community, with various improvements to the CuraEngine, fixes to some persistent bugs, and native compatibility for popular third-party printers (find them in the 'add printer' list). As usual, a special thanks goes out to smartavionics (aka @burtoogle) and @fieldOfView for their valuable contributions. fieldOfview continues to maintain one of the most popular plugins in the Ultimaker Marketplace; the Octoprint Connection plugin, as well as a useful code optimization to make Cura load faster on start, and a lot of other stuff that we are in awe of. Lots of plugins are still being updated to our latest SDK, and we hope to have them in for the stable release. @thopiekar has updated his very popular set of CAD integration plugins, and they will be filtering through to the Marketplace soon. smartavionics made some notable contributions to the CuraEngine, including a new shared heater option in the machine profile menu for printers with one nozzle but multiple extruders, and new settings to add walls into the infill underneath where a skin layer stops, reducing the chance of skin sagging at the edges. Thanks to the help and feedback from our community, we were also able to fix a major Windows bug that would prevent Cura from opening. Proof that sending logs is useful. There are still a lot of PRs in the queue, and we do our best to answer as many as we can, while keeping things on track with our roadmap! Be gentle with us. Release notes will become available on GitHub in time for the stable release. In the meantime, help us out by exploring this release and offering us your feedback. What's the best way to give feedback? This is beta software, so naturally bugs will be found. If you should find one, please let us know, it's extremely helpful to get that feedback so we can produce a quality product. We’ll be able to help you effectively when you follow these guidelines: For Cura-related issues, e.g. "Cura has crashed on startup", post it in this thread, and include as much detail as you can about the issue. The likelihood of us being able to help you is massively improved if you include .3mf project files and logs with your report. You can also post issues you find on GitHub, being sure to fill the issue template completely and attaching logs/zipped 3mf project files. For web marketplace and account-based issues, e.g. "Packages from the web marketplace aren't installing” post in our brand new online services forum subcategory, and our cloud services team can pick it up and talk you through things. See the marketing blog here. Find the beta here (underneath the big blue button). We look forward to your logs!
  11. Good to hear you found a solution. If there's a specific way you need to format hostnames but were limited somehow, please let us know. There's a chance we can integrate this kind of feedback into future firmware updates.
  12. In a browser go to "<printerIP>/printer", click the three dot context menu, and select 'rename printer'. Alternatively you can SSH into the printer and do it that way, it runs on Debian. The printer must be in development mode to do this. Log in as root, default pw is 'ultimaker' Needless to say, you do so at your own risk!
  13. Sounds like I'm repeating what you've already tried here, but besides using adhesives on the bed, a level print surface is a big factor. What's the Z distance from the bed? Consider adjusting it, it could be that the nozzle is printing too far and not getting good adhesion on the first layer. Consider using a brim as an adhesion method when slicing in Cura.
  14. There's not a lot of information to go on here. Are you using Windows? There's a known issue that sounds like what you're describing which will be fixed in the 4.5 release. A beta will go out on 11th feb. See the discussion on GitHub here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/6197
