    Ok, thanks for the explanation.

    New: Ultimaker Cura 3.5

    Sorry, my mistake, I didn't write that properly: I meant when I try to upgrade my Custom profiles for specific materials that are not UM-brand. I was doing test with Laywood with my Everlast 0.6 core, and every time I adjusted a setting for the Laywood profile and clicked on 'Update profile with cureent settings', Cura would create either a copy of the profile (named Laywood #2) or one named 'Empty' instead of updating my Laywood profile. I need to close and reopen Cura to have the changes taken into account in the Laywood profile, and the Laywood #2 and Empty profiles are still there.

    Profiles are weridly updated with 3.5.1. I have a specific profile for my Everlast 0.6 core, and, when I try to upgrade it by clicking on the little arrow then selecting 'Update profile with current settings/overrides', Cura will instead create a new profile. This new profile will either have a similar name to the profile I was trying to updater or just be named 'Empty'. I need to close and reopen Cura for the update to be taken into account, although the 'Empty' profile is still there.
  4. Blender could do the trick as well. It's free, open-source with a massive community currently working on the next version. You can find many resources online teaching you the basics, and even some books written in dead-tree form. It can be used to design objects to your exact specifications of size, and it can also go to the next step of animating. Just look at the movies that the Blender Foundation made using only Blender.

    ABS serious wraping

    Do you have an enclosure for the printer? It's quite mandatory if you want to ensure good printing with ABS. Basically, for ABS, here's what I do: - use UHU glue stick and apply a liberal amount of it on the print bed, - place the enclosure over the printer, to ensure that temperature remains constant throughout the printing, - set a brim to help with adhesion. Once I figured this out, all of my prints with ABS came out perfectly.

    Settings guide is still unreadable with dark theme on 3.5.1.

    I fully agree with this. There are many paying softwares out there that aren't better than their free counterparts.

    I thought the 'curaproject' extension had been removed?

    When people who are among the pillars of this community start complaining that way, I worry... I haven't personally experienced any bugs beyond the Guide being unreadable on dark theme, which is annoying but trivial. However, since a few versions ago, I have the habit of keeping the previous version of Cura on my computer along the new one, just in case there are bugs that make my life more complicated, like the bug one or two versions ago that had the pathing go bonkers and fly off into infinity, resulting in printing time of days or a week for tiny object. Asking for the help of the community for testing is good, but investment in the beta-testing will vary upon the availability of people. I helped some time ago, but I haven't been able to for a while due to a lack of print time available since I use my printer for work. Perhaps more extensive testing in-house should be done. Also, about in-house testing, I wanted to ask what kind of system does UM has for those test? Do you test only on macs or also on windows machines? Do you test only on the latest version of the OS or also on previous ones (Win 8 or whatever big cat or animal name Apple used previously)? Do you test on low end computers or high end?

    Système tenon-mortèse GPS

    Du PP ou du CPE serait sans doute un peu plus solide, mais la taille et l'épaisseur de la pièce est un facteur assez déterminant, quel que soit la matériau utilise. Le sens d'impression aussi, comme l'a dit @Alex74 dans son message plus haut. Je ne crois pas qu'une plus petite hauteur augmente de manière significative la résistance de la pièce, mais je n'ai pas fait de tests à ce sujet.
  11. This looks like underextrusion. Did you select the right profile in Cura?

    Choix imprimante - Bi-matière

    Je n'ai jamais eu à imprimer ce genre de pièce en ABS. Sauf erreur, la plus longue impression en ABS était à un peu plus de 12h et la pièce devait occuper moins de 50% du plateau.

    Choix imprimante - Bi-matière

    Je suis navré mais je n'ai pas gardé les liens des plans que j'avais trouvé. J'ai acheter le capot chez Makershop vu que c'était pour la société, je suis un assez mauvais bricoleur...

    Choix imprimante - Bi-matière

    Je me suis sans doute mal exprimé, excuse-moi. Pour imprimer de l'ABS il faut: - un adhésif pour assurer l'adhérence de la pièce sur le plateau; - une enceinte fermée pour assurer une température constante de la pièce tout au long de l'impression. Pour l'adhésif, la colle UHU fournie avec l'imprimante m'a toujours suffit. J'en met de manière assez libérale sur le plateau et ça ne m'a jamais posé de problème. En plus elle se nettoie très facilement avec de l'eau chaude et un peu de savon sur une éponge et, immense avantage sur les sprays ou les différents scotchs que j'ai essayé, lors du refroidissement, la colle se contracte ce qui fait que la pièce se détache toute seule. Il suffit d'un peu de patience, là où le reste nécessite des outils et de l'huile de coude, avec la possibilité d'endommager la pièce imprimée. Pour l'enceinte fermée, on peut en trouver chez les revendeurs d'imprimante ou, si on est bricoleur, des plans existent sur le web pour faire la sienne. L'ABS étant sensible aux variations de température, imprimer sans enceinte c'est s'exposer au risque d'avoir des craquelures sur la pièce en cours d'impression: le milieu sera plus froid que le bas, qui est collé au plateau, ou que le haut qui est en train d'être imprimé et crac.

    Petit avertissement concernant l'ABS: il nécessite obligatoirement une enceinte fermée, sinon les différences de températures feront échouer l'impression. Ainsi que de la colle pour adhérer au plateau, mais la colle UHU fournie avec l'imprimante est largement suffisante.
