  1. I have a model that *just* fits in the build area when I don't generate support but the build area is reduced by a couple of millimetres when generate support is checked. The model only actually needs support in a small area in the centre of the printer so technically it is printable but I can't get the model to fit to allow cura to slice it to see that it does fit.... As an aside, this is a model I used to print in previous Cura - is the area reduction a new feature of 3.6? Back to the important question, please could someone explain the best way to convince Cura to s
  2. This is all good to know. Life gets easier the less choices you have to make ?
  3. I'm very new to printing and have been experimenting with various filaments and just can't find a scenario where I'd use ABS. Does it have any situation where it is the best choice compared to Tough PLA/Nylon or CPE?
  4.

  5. For the record, in case anyone is interested, I had the Tough PLA in seawater for a week and no problems.
  6. I have 3 S5 printers and I used to be able to connect to all three of them in Cura 3.4 but in Cura 3.5 (and 3.5.1) I can only connect to printer #2 and as soon as I try to connect to #1 or #3 then the program crashes. I've uninstalled 3.4 and 3.5 but no joy. Any idea what I can do to get things going smoothly again? This is all on Windows 10 by the way. Cheers!
  7. I'm printing some parts that are the fairing for a submersible robot. They will be under quite a bit of pressure and I don't want any air pockets. It got me wondering, are 100% infill parts truly 100%? Does the molten filament fill any gaps on previous layers or will there be some gaps? It isn't critical if the pieces deform a bit underwater but it would be nice to put my mind at rest that it'll only be small deformities (or not!) Thanks, Toby
  8. Thanks. I guess I just need to print a part and submerge it....CPE is probably the way to go, its just I'm very new to 3d printing and like being in my comfort zone of plug-n-play with tough pla and an S5...
  9. Hello all. I have some parts that will be submerged in seawater for 24hrs. Does anyone think Tough PLA would be inappropriate for this? Does it absorb much water/dissolve/change properties? Thanks in advance!
