  1. I was actively using Cura up until the release of 4.0 and am now giving 4.1b a try. So far, everything is working except any changes I make to my filament selection are ignored in the main Print Settings dialog. I recall being able to swap between filaments (e.g. PLA & PETG) at will by selecting the appropriate type from the Material dialog box and having temps, cooling and other settings populate the main Print settings dialog. I'm using the Linear Advance plugin and would also like the measured filament diameter to be fed into the main settings. Am I simply remembering incorrectly, or is there a trick to getting material selections to modify the main slice print settings?
  2. Interesting. It shows under the Extruder tab on 4.0.0b2 on MacOS. Did you select a printer profile to start with?
  3. Ah, thanks. I had enabled all settings in my preferences prior to installing the plugin, but apparently needed to go back in and re-select the option to show all settings. I'm not sure if this is documented anywhere, but it's worth noting. Thanks for a great feature. One of the really interesting features of IdeaMaker is to allow individual material profiles to selectively over-ride system-wide settings. This is great for allowing things like speeds & accerations to be adjusted for filaments using otherwise-similar profiles.
  4. Where does one set {material_linear_advance_factor}? I don't see it in the material profiles.
  5. Something is amiss. My 2014 MacBook Air running MacOS 10.14.1 launches Cura 3.6.0 in about 14-22 seconds from click to movable mouse. It's reasonably responsive to interactive use. CPU utilization will spike to 60% doing some actions, but it's definitely usable. I did a fresh install, wiping all prior data when installing 3.5.1.
  6. FWIW: Loading Cura 3.6.0 on a MacBook Air 2014 with 1.7GHz i7 8GB RAM and SSHD running 10.14.1 Mojave takes about 14 seconds. This is an install over 3.5.1 with a couple of printer profiles customized.
  7. Here's what I've got for a Prusa i3 Mk3 (edited down to show warmups only). I raise the nozzle for inspection and bed cleaning, then set the nozzle up to a no-ooze temp and set the bed to a warming temp for the PINDA leveling probe . This has the side benefit of waiting to cool down to this temp if the nozzle is hot, which is good for the Prusa PINDA probe. I then drop the nozzle near the bed center for warming the PINDA probe (consistent temp yields consistent results). Once it's warmed, I re-home, set final bed and nozzle temps, wait for them to warm up, then print the prime line and go. ; Last updated 20180910 M104 S140 ; Set nozzle no-ooze warmup temp M140 S65 ; set bed PINDA warmup temp G28 W ; home all without mesh bed level G0 X0 Y200 Z100.0 F1000 ; raise nozzle and present bed for cleaning M109 ; wait for extruder no-ooze warmup temp before mesh bed leveling, cool hot PINDA G0 X125 Y105 Z0.10 F1000; PINDA warming position M190 S65 ; wait for bed PINDA warmup temp M860 S35 ; wait for PINDA temp to stabilize G28 W ; home all without mesh bed level G80 ; mesh bed leveling M140 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; set bed final temp M104 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; set extruder final temp M109 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; wait for extruder final temp M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; wait for bed final temp ; Print prime line G92 E0.0 ; reset extrusion distance G1 Y-3.0 F1000.0 ; go outside print area G1 X20.0 E6 F1000.0 ; 20mm intro line @ 0.30 G1 X60.0 E3.2 F1000.0 ; +40mm intro line @ 0.08 G1 X100.0 E6 F1000.0 ; +40mm intro line @ 0.15 G1 E-1.0 F900; retract to avoid string G1 X95.0 E0 F1000.0 ; -5mm intro line @ 0.00 G1 X106.0 E0 F1000.0 ; +6mm intro line @ 0.00 G92 E0.0 ; reset extrusion distance M82 ; absolute extrusion mode
  8. Interestingly, I was able to upgrade to Cura 3.5.0 originally (see above) with no problems. Last night, it would crash any time I loaded a new STL. I finally deleted the app (MacOS) and profile (~/Library/Application Support/cura) and re-installed and it seems to be working again.
  9. I had the same issue on MacOS 10.13.6. I've upgraded through successive versions since about 3.3 or so. I installed the Prusa profiles several versions ago and had no issues through several intervening upgrades. After installing 3.5.0, it would crash either after loading an STL or when attempting to slice. I uninstalled (deleted) the Cura app and support directory (~/Library/Application Support/cura) and reinstalled. I repeated the Prusa profile install. So far, it seems stable although I have lost all of my tweaked configurations.
  10. I am able to slice and save it using Cura 3.5.0 on MacOS 10.13.6
  11. I have that option under Preferences->General running Cura 3.4.1...
  12. UDP port 5353 is multicast DNS, used by Apple Bonjour and (with add-ons) Windows. It lets you refer to a device on the network as name.local rather than having to fish around for the IP address.
