  1. I have a simple feature request. Could we get a feature that lifts the print head 1mm or so, turns the fan on, and traces the perimeter of the print to cool it? I have been printing with PETG lately and it seems to cool slower than PLA/ABS so it would be nice to just run the parts fan over the print for a little longer without the nozzle touching. I suspect this would help with overhangs a bit too.
  2. Hi all, I was trying to print the Medieval Castle on thingiverse which is a large model. The maker was kinda enough to break the model into 15-20 smaller chunks but two of which are 10mm too long to fit on my printbed. Since there were so many chunks, I had to manually drag each one on to the plate and check it's dimensions in order to find the max scale factor. One trick I came up with is to make a fake printer with a 1x1x1 meter build area which lets me slice all the parts at once for a *rough* ball park estimation of how long it would take to print, the amount of m
  3. Yes, I agree, the theme with overlapping elements should not be placed into production software. If it were up to me, I would eliminate the "recommended/custom" part completely or convert "recommended" to a "frequently used" section. I would remove "check compatibility". Then I would create three side by side drop down boxes for: Printer - Profile - Material so there is no wasted space without making things too dense. If someone points me in the right direction in the cura source/tools needed, I would make the changes. I do modeling software and not GUI type software th
  4. THANK YOU^1000 I edited the "sidebar" region of theme.json (attached, just change the extension to .json or open in a text editor) and almost doubled the size AND inadvertently covered up that stupid "check compatibility" link that takes up a ton of precious screen real estate. Now I can actually use 3.2 if I can get it to stop changing my filament diameter to 2.85 theme.gcode
  5. Hi all, I use Cura 2.6.2 and just tried 3.2. I have a small 13" laptop which makes every square centimeter of area very valuable but I noticed Cura 3.2 has changed the Print Settings Recommended <-> Custom selector from a switch to a button then added a "check compatibility" link. These changes waste a lot of space to see my settings. Is it possible to write a plug in (or even compile from source!) that will undo these changes? Thanks!
  6. Hi all, I have Cura 2.6 installed on my macbook and trying to navigate with panning and rotating is infuriating since it does not seem to support gestures. I can use the arrow keys to rotate but it triggers a thumping alert sound to occur for each small rotation. It would be so much better if i could just manually configure the keys to zoom, pan, and rotate. Is there anyway to do this?
