  1. I can't find the option of changing the infill percentage in ChangeAtZ 5.1.1 plugin. Looks like it was there before. Where can I find it now in Cura 3.6.1.? Thanks.
  2. I was thinking about a future update of changing the way we navigate between settings of the slicing features. Instead of an infinite scrolling, I think it will be a better approach to switch to tabs, which will be more pleasant to the eye and will make it easier to navigate between each segment. Almost 99% of the times I find my self scroll up and down to find the right category I'm aiming for, I think that if I had the option of tabs view I was able to find what I'm looking for way faster. It will also allow to add more settings to a specific list and still not look too messy. Right now I'm trying to remove as much settings as I can to save some space because it makes my list so long and confusing.
  3. Hi folks, I'm trying to edit my start G-Code so while my printer is heating the nozzle and/or the heatbed, it will also perform auto bed leveling simultaneously. I was thinking about implementing it as the following: IF PRINT JOB USES HEATBED - then the printer will first heat up the bed, then wait for it to reach its desired temperature. Once the bed is heated, it will proceed to auto bed leveling + heating up the nozzle. IF PRINT JOB DOESN'T USE HEATBED - the printer will heat up the nozzle + auto bed level at the same time. I used the following G-Code: G21 ;metric values G90 ;absolute positioning M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode M107 ;Turn layer fan OFF M140 S[bed0_temperature] ;set bed temperature G28 ;home all axis M190 S[bed0_temperature] ;wait for bed temperature M104 [extruder0_temperature] ;set extruder temperature G29 ;auto bed leveling M109 S[extruder0_temperature] ;wait for hotend temperature However, it didn't work. When I start a print job, the printer will first heat up the nozzle or the heatbed, and then will procced to G28 and then G29. Am I doing something wrong? Will Cura even allow to heat nozzle and auto bed level at the same time? By the way, my printer is running with the latest Marlin 1.1.9 version. BLTouch probe leveling is enabled. Thanks for any help guys.

    Auto Bed Leveling while Nozzle & Bed Heats Up

    I was able to make it to work! This is how the G-Code looks now: M140 S{material_bed_temperature} ;set bed temperature G28 ;home all axis M190 S{material_bed_temperature} ;wait for bed temperature M104 T0 S{material_print_temperature} ;set hotend temperature G29 ;auto bed leveling M109 T0 S{material_print_temperature} ;wait for hotend temperature Now my prints are more "productive" - instead of waiting for the nozzle and/or the bed to heat up, then home XYZ, then start to auto bed leveling; now it first heats up the bed (if it set to do it), in the same time it homes XYZ, and wait for the bed's target temperature. When the bed reaches to its temperatures, the printer will proceed to heat the nozzle and while the nozzle heats up, auto bed leveling is being executed. When the heating is all done, print starts.

    Auto Bed Leveling while Nozzle & Bed Heats Up

    You were right! I took those lines from a Simplify3D forum, now I understand why it didn't work out. Anyways, I used M140 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} and M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} and it works - when I start a print job that includes a build plate temperature, the bed is heating and once it's done - printer starts to initialize a G29 command. While the printer is auto bed leveling, I want the extruder to heat up, and let the machine wait until the extruder reached its temperature before starting to print. Since my extruder is on E1, I used M104 T1 S{material_print_temperature, 1} and M109 T1 S{material_print_temperature, 1}. Unfortunately, the extruder is not heating up. The printer starts to print and the extruder is cold. Do you know why? Here's how my G-Code looks like now: G21 ;metric values G90 ;absolute positioning M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode M107 ;Turn layer fan OFF M140 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ;set bed temperature G28 ;home all axis M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ;wait for bed temperature M104 T1 S{material_print_temperature, 1} ; set hotend temperature G29 ;auto bed leveling M109 T1 S{material_print_temperature, 1} ;wait for hotend temperature

    Auto Bed Leveling while Nozzle & Bed Heats Up

    Hi Smithy, my Cura profile is configured to use G-Code flavor of Marlin.
  7. Hi, When I print ABS the very first layers are not getting stick so well to the bed an causing a lot of mess. Almost every print I need to clean the excess layers with tweezers from the nozzle, which is not very convenient. In Simplify3D there's an option to enable both Brim and Skirt adhesion together. I would like to know if it's also can be done in Cura, and if not, will be nice to see it implemented into the app. That way you can clean your nozzle (or hope it will get cleaned somehow by itself) before the brim starts to print. Thanks.

    Z Offset with BLTouch?

    Hi there, A quick question. If I'm using a BLTouch to level my bed, and lets say for some reason the BLTouch is not calibrated right, hence the first print layers are getting squished. If I set a Z Offset from the Cura ''Build Plate Adhesion'' setting menu, will the printer listen to it, or the BLTouch will override it?
