  1. Hi All I've tried using the gyroid infill setting a few times now and each time have experienced an alarming level of vibration at the print head that comes when the infill is being printed. I can't tell if this is due to the slice settings or some kind of mechanical issue e.g the nozzle tip catching against the material, but either way it doesn't seem like it'll be good for the printer over time. The problem doesn't exist on the first layer, when I've printed an infill-only model, but it always occurs on each infill layer after that. I have attached a video with sound of a part exhibiting this problem, and the Cura project file. Could anyone shed some light on whether this is normal, or what the problem could be? Many thanks.

  2. I have just noticed this too. Kind of annoying.
  3. I have this exact problem, and would love to know if there's a tweak to a setting that I've been missing.
  4. Currently loving the U3 we have just bought at work but if I were to suggest some potential improvements: - fully enclosed and thermally controlled chamber - interchangeable heads for laser engraving. Maybe a "lasercore"? - More stable soluble support material (PVA is great when it works, but when it doesn't work it's a nightmare)
  5. I'd love to see a feature in Cura that can independently control the thickness of a wall section around a hole. I've noticed that screw heads tend to leave an indent in the material over time and although that seems to be the case on all the different manufacturing methods we've tried (machined PVC, Nylon SLS and PLA/ABS FDM) I think extra material around a hole would help the longevity of the fixture parts we print on our U3.
