  1. @zerspaner_gerd, in der Tat, es wäre interessant zu sehen, ob dies eine Verbesserung bringt. Zumindest würde sich der G-Code, je nach dem was gedruckt wird, um einiges verkürzen. Das ist für mich per se eine sinnvolle Weiterentwicklung. Zur Zeit ist der Postprozessor noch nicht da, wo er sein müsste, um wirklich produktiv einsetzbar zu sein. Für einfache Grundstrukturen kann man es schon nutzen (solange nicht mehr als ein Teil zu drucken ist). Offensichtlich hat der Slicer noch den ein oder anderen Fehler. Jedoch finde ich es noch viel spannender, dass mit der Einführung des Slicers in Fusion als nächster logischer Schritt man dem Weg zum Thema Simulation für 3D gedruckte Modelle näher kommt. Bin mächtig gespannt, ob und wie es da weitergeht.
  2. +1 This was a good decision. It's maybe a good idea installing the MeshTools plugin from @ahoeben too. It can save you a lot of headaches identifying those kind of problems.
  3. Good point., you are right. Hadn't thought about this.
  4. Hadn't you check the model? Cura clearly give a warning that your model isn't watertight and have 11 sub meshes... For Fusion 360 this is very uncommon and happen usually with meshes where you forgot to close/connect surfaces. With a real construction in Fusion this will not happen (except you will do walls with zero or smaller as line width thickness. My first thought was that you maybe had import a stl file to Fusion360? These kind of files I saw usually from SketchUp, never from Fusion360. Cura can't work with this model. There are too much errors (walls with zero thickness and some other problems).
  5. I didn't knew your laptop, but maybe there are two graphic drivers in your system, one for external and one for the internal display. You should update both to the latest version including OpenGL.
  6. Your welcome. Glad to see you solved it for your needs. Happy printing. Regarding the profiles I think you are right. Guess, most UM users use also the preferred materials as this combination is proved to work. I'm ok with this, as one of the over all benefits is a freely usable and maintained Cura Software. That's how business works. :)
  7. Yes, it seems you have the same issue. The path is c:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 4.5\resources\definitions\ (Windows10) As fare as I can see, you have the same entry in file ultimaker2.def.json (ultimaker2_extended.def.json points to this file). For changing you need to open the file with administrator rights. Make a save copy of the original file. I'm a bit concerned about this modification at that place, as this is something what needs to be updated with each update as it differ from the standard setup. I wonder why they have choose this behavior. Anyway, you can also make a own definition file as copy and modify there the behavior you want. That is maybe the better way.
  8. "The best" is always a personal choice and mostly out of date 🙂 Maybe the setting guide plugin in Cura is a good starting point. I fond the ebook "3D Printing Failures" from Sean Aranda (aka The print general) as a helpful book of reference when it comes to print failures.
  9. You are welcome, I'm happy to help.
  10. As I saw, you are printing with a Tevo Black widow. Is it possible that you are using the standard definition file? Maybe I am wrong, but the definition file says: "metadata": { "visible": true, "author": "TheTobby", "manufacturer": "Tevo", "file_formats": "text/x-gcode", "has_materials": false, "has_machine_quality": true, "platform": "tevo_blackwidow.stl", "preferred_quality_type": "normal", "machine_extruder_trains": Shouldn't this be "has_materials": true ?
  11. Had you update your plugin(s) (Material Settings plugin) too?
  12. Hi, gestern bin ich über die Neuerungen von Fusion 360 gestolpert und habe im Fertigungsmodul einen neuen Eintrag "Zusatz" gefunden. Nun ja, die Übersetzung ist ziemlich dämlich, aber im Original bedeutet es Additive Fertigung. Somit ist nun konsequenter weise auch der 3D-Druck in Fusion als Postprozessor eingezogen. Das ist alles noch recht Beta, aber man kann schon ein wenig mit herumspielen. Falls es jemand interessiert, hier ein Link zum Autodesk Fusion 360 Video mit einer Kurzeinführung: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd0l2ZOQQek Es gibt schon einige Postprozessor-Profile für UM und andere, diese können hier gefunden werden (unter "Any type" den Eintrag "Additive" auswählen): https://cam.autodesk.com/hsmposts
  13. Oh. Can you tell why? I like to ask because of implementing a tool changer.
