  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 slice this model? Thank you!
  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!
