  1. So your intent is to make an example out of me, to try and prevent other users from ever doing such a terrible thing as making a suggestion without writing the code themselves? Do you not see how silly that sounds? I did not see the other thread. I get your point, and agree with a lot of what you're saying, but your approach is completely wrong. Why could you not simply let it go when I said I'd make a pull request? Other users in this thread were willing to dive into the issue and point me in the right direction, which is how you solve problems. This is exactly the problem. If you cannot see past that, I cannot help you. It's not my fault that you aren't willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. I have forked the repo and added a comment where I want to modify the code. What I originally wanted to do is simple enough and would work, but after reading in the code it said "It works well to set this in between the outer wall speed and the infill speed.", it made me think that maybe I could redo the code to calculate based on that instead. I threw a bookmark to the page on my desktop and went to do some other things for a while while I thought about it. But yes, I'm a terrible person for not submitting that pull request already. You got me, kman. I'm a true atrocity to open source community, and should be banished eternally. You're the hero this community needs.
  2. Alright, I tried. It doesn't really matter whether I came here to do the work or not. I came here with good intentions, and I've attempted to remain constructive, despite your negativity and assumptions of my laziness. I'm not "complaining", I'm providing feedback. You clearly have a bias and are interpreting things however you want. Your words have remained antagonistic throughout this conversation. We're not even talking about the problem, because you're so insistent that it doesn't deserve attention. That's simply your opinion, and I disagree. You stated early on that I wouldn't sway your opinion on this, so why are you still talking about it? You're not the gatekeeper. If you really wanted to help the Cura devs, you'd simply let threads like this fizzle out, rather than continually bumping it back up to the top with replies that add nothing. I appreciate your original intent to help, but it quickly devolved into trying to label me as some ungrateful complainer and put me in a bucket with previous forum users you've encountered. If people don't think it's a problem, they can just ignore the thread.
  3. kman, I'm not 'incensed' because of your applause. I'm sitting here just shaking my head in wonder of how this thread has derailed to this point, or why I'm beginning this reply, but I will attempt to clarify why I said it's stupid, and extend an olive branch. You applaud me while simultaneously misinterpreting my intent, and entitling yourself to do so because of the actions of past users. When I said "I still feel that modifying the included Custom FDM Printer profile is a good idea", you assumed that I mean that the Cura Devs have to do it and I was flip-flopping. I just meant that they would accept a pull request, but never stated who would do the modifying. At that point I'd already gone and located the file on Github. So, if you can accept that I'm not just a lazy user looking to leech off the hard work of Cura devs, I will accept that there are a lot of people that come here with that intent, and can see how it could have been easy to perceive it as so. I contribute to several open source projects, and I don't really care who does the work as long as things get better. So, truce?
  4. kman, I'm done. This is stupid. Have a nice day.
  5. You're making this much more personal that it needs to be, and making false assumptions. I had no idea where to even look, and now that I've been directed to Github, I have a a way to contribute. Honestly, I've never even looked to see where their code repository is. Perhaps I could have spent more time on Google before coming here, I'll admit that much. To suggest that I want the Cura Devs to bend over backwards and do all the work is simply putting words into my mouth. I just didn't know how/where to help and started here. While I may create a CR-10 Mini profile as well, I still feel that modifying the included Custom FDM Printer profile is a good idea, and will suggest doing so.
  6. The Custom FDM Printer profile is the profile many users will select, since it's a simple starting place for users that don't have their printer in list, and don't have manufacturers kind enough to provide Cura profiles. Assuming that most printers will want Inner Wall Speed to be a 2x multiple of Wall Speed is a bad assumption, in my opinion. I'm not trying to convince you. I'm trying to convince Cura devs, which is why I'll submit a pull request on Github. Thank you @tinkergnome for pointing me in the right direction. I'll do the work and make the change for them, and they can accept it if they like. That's the great thing about working with an open source community. If they don't like the suggestion, they can simply reject it, but implementing is super easy, should they decide to. However, I feel the conversation here is becoming less than productive.
  7. I disagree, and think it makes less sense. We know that this hobby is filled with hardware from all over the world, even homebrew solutions, and that getting manufacturers to all support one specific software product will never happen, especially when many of them have solutions of their own. The default profile should err on the side of caution rather than performance. While I don't think this is a huge problem, I stand by the idea that changing the default Custom FDM Printer profile is an easy solution with very little downside. Whether Cura devs agree and want to spend a few minutes on it is another story, but it makes a lot more sense than reaching out to every vendor out there to try and get them to make Cura profiles. Edit: It probably would make more sense to submit a pull request to their Github than talk about it on the forum. I'll do that instead. Thank you for the information, everyone.
  8. It would be nice, but unfortunately we cannot expect official profiles from every printer manufacturer, or for Cura devs to make them, so many users will end up using the defaults. At the end of the day, this is free software provided without warranty, and of course it's up to the end user to make sure things are correct. It's just a suggestion for the developers to consider, and would be a pretty simple change. Change "value": "speed_wall * 2", to "value": "speed_wall * 1", for "speed_wall_x": in fdmprinter.def.json. The only downside I see is that for people using Custom FDM Printer profile, prints would be a little slower by default.
  9. Thank you, @JCD! This is a good workaround; I just have to remember to do it when I upgrade. @tinkergnome I'm using a Creality CR-10 Mini, but I use the default "Custom FDM printer" profile, and no manual adjustments to the configuration file. These are the settings coming from a stock Cura installation. I still think it may be worth a look at that setting, as it can cause unforseen behavior for users simply adjusting wall speed, and since it appears to be a default setting for the Custom FDM Printer profile included with Cura, it can affect a large number of users. Thank you for the replies everyone. Happy printing!
  10. Yeah, I've learned to keep an eye out, but it got me again today so I thought I'd post it as a suggestion. It would just idiot-proof things a bit more, for people like me! ?
  11. I was changing normal Wall Speed. It appears you were changing Outer Wall Speed. And yes, you can override and just change Inner Wall Speed, but the idea is that you don't want the printer to exceed the maximum speed a user would expect, just by changing Wall Speed. In my case, I originally didn't have the Outer Wall Speed and Inner Wall Speed settings showing, so I had no idea that I was printing at 100mm/s until I started poking around.
  12. Hi, I'm sorry, I'll try to explain better with screenshots. In the first screenshot, I leave Wall Speed at default. In the second, I change only Wall Speed, since I can still accurately draw walls at 50mm/s, but start to have trouble closer to 60. This causes my Inner Wall Speed to become calculated as double (100mm/s), more than my printer can handle. It's easy to get around by setting Inner Wall Speed manually, but for a while I had that option hidden and didn't know what my problem was, or sometimes I'll miss setting it. My suggestion would to limit calculated Wall Speeds so that they never exceed normal Print Speed unless set manually. Again, it's not a big deal, but just a suggestion that would probably help avoid some headaches.
  13. Hi, I love Cura and use it all the time. One thing that I've had happen a couple times while not paying attention is that when I set my Wall Speed, the Inner Wall Speed is set to 200% automatically. For instance, my printer extrudes PLA fine at 190C up to about 80mm/s. My normal Print Speed is 65mm/s, but I want Wall Speed at 50mm/s for a little more accuracy. Cura then automatically calculates my Inner Wall Speed to 100mm/s, resulting in a speed faster than my printer can handle well. This is easy to work around, and ultimately my fault for not checking, but I feel that inner wall speed should not be faster than 100% of base Wall Speed by default. Just a suggestion, thanks!
