  1. Found it, thanks for the link. It says- DEBUG - [MainThread] UM.View.GL.OpenGL.__init__ [99]: Initialized OpenGL subsystems. 2018-11-21 14:20:23,554 - DEBUG - [MainThread] UM.View.GL.OpenGL.__init__ [100]: OpenGL Version: 4.0.0 - Build 2018-11-21 14:20:23,556 - DEBUG - [MainThread] UM.View.GL.OpenGL.__init__ [101]: OpenGL Vendor: Intel 2018-11-21 14:20:23,558 - DEBUG - [MainThread] UM.View.GL.OpenGL.__init__ [102]: OpenGL Renderer: Intel(R) HD Graphics 2500 Cura notes say (sadly) Better layout for 3D layer view options.

  2. Where are the logs ? I found a post with this - I know of the Cura log in /Users//Library/Application Support Problem is there are lots of Users type files so this is a bit like saying, there is a noise from my engine, are the shell bearings ok, what are shell bearings ? A common computer problem, microsoft are the worst, to say look at X assuming people have a good system understanding. I do love some solutions, I looked up how to find if open GL is installed, answer, install open gl viewer... ?? Often the solution, download some one time only software, edit the registry e
  3. Thanks for the quick reply, gyroind turned up and looks neat. Just about to print a small part that failed which this may help. Still no simulation view, tried the option here but still doesen't show. Nice feature to see the movement. I have had problems before where travel caused bad layers so to see how the layers go down would be really useful. I have a current version of win10 so should support Open GL ? I may try reinstall to see if it iwas one of the options I rejected. Seems it may be compatibility mode but where is it ? Still searching but can't see it in any
  4. Hi, just installed 3.6 and as it was installing it kept asking did I trust and want to install loads of stuff mentioning ports and usb. As a rule I say no as no idea what it is. Having said no a lot of the newer features that look good don't appear, do I need these, if so I will reinstall. I liked the second layer view option that shows head travel on each layer, selected the option but not appearing. Also the new infill is not appearing, just the usual ones. What do I need to do to fix this ? I am sure if you offer to install all the other stuff it must be ok, just that
  5. No problem. I think it is just a case of trying different stuff. Just to add to the confusion I think filament make / age is also a factor. A lis of things to play around with would be nice, in the meantime I will play with retraction settings, my best bet I think.
  6. Thanks for the idea, I tried it but still the same. Thought Z seam would start at different points and so also randomise travel points. Seems it does not . I tried moving the part on the print bed, instead of left to right I put it at 30 deg and seems better. Problem then is the grid infill is not lined up right. Seems each layer does the following, put down an outer layer ending top right corner. Then travel to the bottom left corner (quite a distance) and then start again. It is this travel that is the problem as in lower layers especially it misses bits of the layer and is wea
  7. Had this before and thought it had gone, may have cured it but still printing. Basically a model (usually the same type long thin bar shape) has bad layers at one corner, when I look at the travels in Cura they always end up there on every layer. This and retraction are the cause I think. I can attach a photo but really it is just every other layer is missing in one corner, once the nozzle has gone a cm or so all is well. So - is there a way to randomise where the travels end up. A bit like Z seam to say travel path = random. This sometimes goes away if I don't use retractio
  8. Getting better with Rcgroups help, still not right though. Anybody have a proper set of parameters for a CR-10 for the 3dlab planes ?
  9. Thanks Drayson, don't waste too much time or plastic on it though I think you are right on the layer height, I know it takes longer but that is what the pub and a good night's sleep is for. At 0.15 in Cura it says 6 hrs which would be about 7ish then, but at least it would work ok ? I tried the gcode files supplied but very stringy and some errors, expected as for a direct drive print head and mine is bowden so retract will be off. Also no support in one section of wing (designed like that), may be worse because it didn't print the horizontal section. Some exterior blobbing
  10. Very close now, all excellent apart from the angled interior supports (perforated curved bits) which are fine for near vertical but some start at about 45 degrees and print as a series of unconnected strings. The corner with the half cone as it's stat point (see photos above) will never be right I think, some adhesion but weak. The normal outer walls are just about perfect. Set at 0.2mm layer height and print temp 215 bed 60. Tried the 2.5mm recommended and the curves and slopes are worse, as expected. Question is is there a setting to fix the stringy slopes ? I am sure I c
  11. I am sure you are right, currently reimported their 'starter' settings and will play with temperatures. I can see loads of people on youtube who have printed these perfectly, and I would like to be one of them I will try a few more variations, at least the merged meshes overlap to 0 worked. I will try my amended print later, I have now figured out how to save my settings so have tidied up the dozen or so failed profiles, progress at last. Thanks for all the help so fa, hopefully won't need much more.
  12. Drayson said he would look at it and let me know any results. I looked at the other thread and saw the settings mentioned. I have just realised that if a setting is not displayed on the right it is not just not being used but is set to some default or other. As you can see I am that new to this, not so mych a learning curve as vertical takeoff I located the Merged meshes overlap and set it to 0 and the supports appeared so thanks that worked. One thing I can't seem to do is make it print like the 3dlab one does, you can see it printing the above formats here, it print
  13. No reply from 3dlab, as usual so here is the problem .stl good luck as I think you'll need it. I have posted a request on the 3dlab forum to ask for settings as the ones they provided just don't work. wing_L1.STL
  14. Just watched the 3dlab direct gcode print working and I think that would be ok. I may try it fully, unfortunately it is printing to the far left of my print bed and I hadn't put tape on that. What is interesting is their codes, looking at the photo with the various sections, it prints the interior bits first, so all the little boxes in the first layer are printed with a gap between them. Then it goes all around the outside making the wing shape. So is it possible to make cura produce this ? Is this sort of 'inner walls first' then outer walls. The .stl file sees internal and exte
  15. I read where somebody said 3d printing is a hobby within a hobby, good observation. I will be a while between relies as (as we all know) prints can take a while. I have a large pile of 1cm high sections in various states. I am trying various bits and changes, one problem I have with cura is saving a profile so end up writing them down. I know quitting seems to save it but when I say keep changes I keep getting it wrong, so I have one nearly working then have to start again. A save profile would be easier to understand ? Single wall printing is tricky, 3dlab said so but no r
