  1. Something has changed in the Cura profiles which now marks the CC core as not compatible with CPE ?, it was previously a supported material but has now been removed ?, always printed fine for me !
  2. hmmm, yes i can imagine it's not worth the hassle, i am certainly not that bothered about my designs. I guess i was more surprised that there seemed to be such a big market for people buying these models for not (relatively) small amounts of money !, £7 for the flexible octopus is crazy, you only need to sell 3 and cover the cost of 1kg of PLA. And its not like only one person is selling the same model, and they all seem to have a number of feedback ratings suggestinng they are selling ! maybe i am too relaxed and should really be only designing something for myself and get it straight on
  3. I happened to look on Etsy for something and noticed the sheer amount of people selling other people's designs and more to the point people are paying £7 or so for a 3d printed octopus or T-Rex is mind blowing !, i quickly checked and change some of my free toy designs licences on Thingv to non-commercial, but i cannot believe how many people are simply printing the flexible octopus (given by the designer for free) for example and people seem to by buying them !. Maybe i was naive to what people will do in terms of taking other people's work, and surprisingly what people will buy !
  4. think you have an diff issue, i have the last of the non-M1 MBP, same spec as yours and it works fine in the latest 'Big Sur' 11.1 release, it does sometimes loose ability to see the sliced preview but closing and re-opening Cura fixes that.
  5. no sorry, thought i had replied !, yes, UM S5
  6. update: the plugin didn't affect this stuttering
  7. Yes, S5, the stutter always occurs after a curve, i will run it and see what happens...
  8. thanks, will give it a go, i am using a S5, should it work ?. Does it need to be enabled or just installed and it will affect the generated Gcode ?
  9. update: i have updated the firmware to V6 which released today and the issue/stutter blobs still persists (no change from 5x) @bagel-orb @Montani @SandervG, any ideas ? Max res is already at 1.167 and dev at 0.08, not sure it makes sense to increase these values !
  10. @bagel-orb have you any insight on this, i know its a old post but i still always see this sort of stuttering on a S5 with the defaults for max res and deviation. As you can see the spacing is so consistent that it looks like a build up of commands in the processors then a stutter occurs. @Montani would this be correct by the new firmware do you know ?, i cannot remove this not matter what it try in the slicer. MAny thanks
  11. I am trying to remove a material from the market place list of installed materials, however every time i do it when i log back into Cura it says my account needs to sync and it adds back the materials !, how can i remove the material from the list of installed materials ?
  12. after trying a couple of prints, in terms of quality, 4.8.0 produces better results if you disable 'fill gaps between walls' and 'compensate wall overlap', which i have had to do for a long time as they are not good. Clearly Archane looks to address the issues these settings have, but for now there are many surface artifacts with Archane and in reality it's not much better than 4.8.0 in terms of visual quality with these problematic settings enabled. Obviously once Archane does what it is meant to it will fill any gaps between walls (should make stronger prints, although that'
  13. This sounds encouraging, the two features which give me the most issues in terms of quality are compensate walls overlap and fill gaps between walls, i have both disabled but sounds like this will correct the issues those two features were targeting. Fingers crossed !
  14. indeed, i did consider trying that, but could not see how to get a scalpel around the side of the rod with the cover just sliding up and down on it... also scratching the rod with a scalpel would def be an option ... tricky. I could not really see or even reach the clips that undo the cover, that cover is what holds the linear bearings into the bed, if those clips got damaged or did not seat back properly then the bearings would rise out of the build plate. I was pretty sure something was going to get broken or scratched trying the simpler way... 🙂, maybe thats just me..
