    Specify auto0.g as the filename for gcode?

    This was requested as a feature a while back, someone wrote some code, but apparently it went nowhere. https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/1059 I guess I would need to write the code myself if I want it fixed.

    Printhead setting not working

    That had no effect. I"m really beginning to think the feature is broken.

    Specify auto0.g as the filename for gcode?

    How do I make an official feature request?
  4. My printer looks for a file named auto0.g on the SD card to print. Would it be possible to configure Cura to always use that filename, instead of what it does today?

    Printhead setting not working

    I can't seem to get the Printhead Settings to work. I have a Printrbot Simple 1405, which looks like this: So based on my reading of the help text, the Xmin should be about 40mm, Xmax should be about 60mm, Ymin should be about 10mm, and Ymax should be some very large value, like 1000mm. The Gantry Height should also be some very large value (which it is by default). Unfortunately, these settings result in an overlay map like this: As I found out the hard way, this doesn't print. Cura prints the model on the right first, and then attempts to print the model on the left. It ends up crashing into the model on the right instead.

    Cura 3.2.1 Temperature control?

    Thank you very much. Right now, I need to use Cura 15 to fix manually extrude anything. It will be nice to be able to delete it and use Cura 3.x for everything.

    Cura settings for round holes (poor print quality)

    I also have this problem, although it's not quite as bad as Tim's, and I also have a 0.4mm nozzle. I don't understand your explanation as to why a 0.4mm nozzle could be the culprit.

    Welcome to Ultimaker Cura 3.2 | Stable

    I don't think this is true. If there is a syntax error in any of the printer definition JSON files, Cura will crash.

    Specifying the default material in the JSON file?

    It doesn't work. The new printer sets its material to PolyWood.
  10. What is the difference among these three terms? Under "Infill" settings, I can set the "infill overlap" and "skin overlap" percentages. Under "Shell" settings, it talks about Wall overlaps. Skin overlap defaults to 5% and 0.02mm -- why both settings? Don't they conflict? And why does infill overlap default to 0? Shouldn't it also be 5%

    trouble placing parts close together in cura

    I hate to revive an old thread, but this doesn't work in Cura 3.2. If I put these pieces close together, Cura will refuse to slice one of them. Is this supposed to work?
  12. My printer seems to have difficulty printing circular walls for holes without making a mess. Is there a way to specify a separate (slower) speed for just those walls?

    Why is my layer height orange?

    Shouldn't Cura automatically scale the quality levels for the nozzle size? That is, "Extra Course" is always the nozzle width, and will be Orange, then Course is 75% of the nozzle width, and so on.

    Why is my layer height orange?

    Looks like something I shouldn't touch in my printer definition.

    Mailing list or forum for developers?

    I've been doing that, but there's I can't find any actual documentation for the contents of the JSON files. My printer definition works, but I want to perfect it.
