  1. Perhaps I have misunderstood what you mean. Are you able to explain in more detail how and why you'd like to do it this way?
  2. Sounds like a 3mf project file would achieve this.
  3. Can you give some more details about your setup? Is the origin intended to be in the rear corner, or did you configure this in firmware? This could be something that can be fixed in firmware/stepper motor wiring.
  4. Forgot to say: to understand what's actually happening here, at least one of you should share a log file so we can analyze it. Details of how to do this are here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura#logging-issues
  5. There's probably something incompatible in the settings stack. IIRC the Artillery Sidewinder X1 profile is a manually added profile that was developed for 4.2 I think, so doesn't really adhere to the settings requirements of the latest version (4.6.1. at the time of writing). New stuff has been added to the settings stack, such as Intent based profiles, which is probably breaking this, hence the crash. If you look here, you can see the settings requirements for machine definitions https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Adding-new-machine-profiles-to-Cura I've said this elsewhere on the forum before: I'd really recommend someone in the community patch this profile up and submit it to us as a pull request, then we can pull it into the source code and ship it with each release as a third-party printer. Not only is it easier to get going (select a printer from the menu instead of dragging and dropping several files into folders), but there's a better chance of compatibility with future versions as our update scripts can handle settings changes.
  6. Thanks for reporting this @srkinard. A log would be useful! Our devs are more likely to look at our GitHub issue tracker, so if you can post a report there that would be great https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/new/choose
  7. Thanks for the report. Are you using multiple monitors? Can you share a log with me? https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura#logging-issues It's best to report this on GitHub https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/new/choose
  8. Are you exporting them from CAD software? Can you share a 3mf project file? (File > Save as...)
  9. That's weird. Upload a project file and I can take a look? (File > Save...) I have a feeling this is a firmware issue with Ender 3 machines, I seem to remember something similar reported before...
  10. Sounds like you've enabled a post processing script when slicing. Did you do this?
  11. Check if your bed is level. In the top area the nozzle is squeezed right up against the bed, and therefore extruding less, which creates this effect.
  12. We prefer feature requests for Cura to come in through GitHub. If this is something you'd like considered, submit it here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/new?assignees=&labels=Type%3A+New+Feature&template=feature_request.md&title=
  13. Cura is an open source software, if we modify it, does the printer let us upgrade to our version? Cura is open source software so yes you can modify it and it will still work with the printer (provided you didn't break any of the core components). In the future we will need to control the printer, in a simple way (may be just send it some command to start a "production"), with a PLC, can we modify the software to achieve this? or modify the software in that way? Is now possible to do that? Depending on what you're trying to do, you could probably make a plugin to carry out what you need. https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Plugin-Directory There's also an API that you can use for the printer. Documentation for this is stored in the internal system of the printer. You can access this by navigating to the printer IP on your local network.
  14. https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Adding-new-machine-profiles-to-Cura See above for instructions of how to add a third-party printer to Cura. We don't develop or maintain definitions for third-party machines (doing so would be a monumental task for our small development team when you factor in the amount of machines out there, maintenance, and QA). Someone in the community will need to create it, test it, and submit it, we can then review the pull request and pull it into the source if it meets our standards.
  15. Are you able to try this in 4.6.1? Some issues relating to 'ugly prints' have been resolved since 4.3.
