  1. so fast ! tks. not really : here below : PLA - EVO or PLA - HR870 instead of PLA or PLA n.b. the temperature of the first is 206°c while the second is 215°c
  2. To gain visibility by displaying only the full name of the profile used, be able to choose not to display in the small window concerned irrelevant details such as %infill, layer height, etc.. The choice could be made simply via a check box in «preference-> configure Cura» May be could it be a plugin ? Tks
  3. As usual, super @ahoeben. I whish you an happy new year with all my thanks for your wonderful Cura input. May be also the material_display_name because some parameters inside the profil are specific to each filament even if they are all PLA ( ie T°, speed, ... ) .
  4. TKS for this clarification
  5. He, in case of raft, the "initial layer height" applied to the raft first layer or to the model first layer ? Thanks Philippe
  6. strange because the new visual extra fine intent profile for S3 is set with 0.06 LH and not 0.08 ? by the way, I get far better result with a 0.08 LH with my 0.20 nozzel on my MK3s
  7. He, re : task manager with 4.4.0 and 4.3.0 versions at start and when loading the profile TM.zip
  8. He, I did not dare try the solution of GH which seems too complex for me. By the way, what do you means by 'logs" ? ( I enclosed 3mf and profiles Cura 4.40 and Cura 4.3.0) I found a solution in the forum : well, my problem was not at start, but I made the following, based on his suggestion :norton -> pare feu -> controle programme -> ajouter ( add a new program autorisation) -> selected CURA 4.4.0 and gave full autorisation.the reaction speed of this beautifull program has greatly improved, even if it is not a "speedy gonzales". BUG.zip
  9. Tks, @RoboDLC What I made, based on your suggestion: norton -> pare feu -> controle programme -> ajouter ( add a new programme autorisation) -> selected CURA 4.4.0 and gave full autorisation. Now, the problem is solved.
  10. He, I just installed the new release. Not any crash at opening but program freezes (« not responding ») during 10 à to 20 seconds at each action / profile param value update, insert or delete or move any item on the build plate, record profile, etc. Loading a project is so so slow. I do not have any of these problems with my current 4.3.0 version fortunately still active. Spectre, Win 10 family 64 bits, Intel I7 6500 CPU, 8Go Active printer : MK2 sorry
  11. He, which formulas are to be used into the start code to be able to use each all new linear advance factors ( infill, wall, ...) set inside the profil ? why so many possibilities ? Many tks. Philippe
  12. He, I print with 0.2 and 0.15 nozzles with CURA 4.0.0. The few cool filament remaining in the nozzle at start tends to generate on the next print an under-extrusion or worse a clogging. I eliminate this problem by extruding -before each new print- 5cms at the first layer temperature + 15 °c. In the same spirit, I fully retract the filament at the end of each print : G1 E-160 F600 … again with an extrudeur T° set at first layer temperature +15°. It works perfectly and I have no more worries. I set both higher T° manually in my start/end g_codes but have to update them at each first layer T° change (filament change). In the start/end g_code, the formula M104 S {material_print_temperature_layer_0} to obtain a T ° equal to the first layer T° defined in CURA 4.0.0 profile works fine. But how to increase it by + 15 ° ? I tried unsuccessfully various formulas: M104 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0 + 15} or M104 S {material_print_temperature_layer_0 +15}, or M104 S{(material_print_temperature_layer_0) +15} or M104 S {material_print_temperature_layer_0 * 1.1} None works. Any suggestion ? Many tks Philippe
  13. Tests with different values for the adaptive layers threshold parameter. We print our locomotive with 0.081 layers. it's good, although some too small details are not printed optimally. With layers of 0.05, the details are improved, but the overall quality seems less good. The use of adaptive layers is therefore an excellent solution. Congratulations to ctbeke. I found this post and this other post Well, I did not found a mathematically understandable answer to my above question, but I understood how to set up this superb function. In my case : Layer height : 0.081 initial layer height : 0.16 Adaptative layer maximum variation : 0.03 which allow layers from 0.051 till 0.111 Adaptative layers variation step size : 0.012 ( = 0.051, 0.063, 0.075, 0.087, ……….. 0.087 , 0.099 , 0.111) I then performed tests with different values of the "adaptive layers threshold" to compare the results with a print made either only with 0.081 layers (20H46) or with 0.05 (33H03). The result shows a variation of the layers height (and therefore the duration) not constant. I have summarized it in the table below. After a visual study, we decided to use for this model a value of 500, which generate this slicing : Phil
