    PVA filament

    We bought a polybox to store our filament (both, UM tPLA and UM PVA). Nonetheless, sometimes the PVA material fails to print properly due to insufficient material quality (after a couple of weeks). Allthough we try to print 24/7 with our UMS5, the PVA spool is too big for us (takes much more than a few weeks to completely print a spool of PVA filament). Would love to see 1/2 spools PVA filament in the near future. Might be a good (and easy) idea? Or is it already available?

    Dynamic vs static IP address

    Thanks, not ideal but it will do for now. @Ultimaker could you please comment on the above mentioned suggestion as well? Thanks
  3. Currently, the IP address of the Ultimaker S5 is dynamic. We would love to see the option to make a static IP address in the next firmware update. Can imagine that more organisations/companies would love to see this as well. Many thanks, Luuk

    Perfect wall thickness

    Well, made another test sample and got some interesting insights. Test specimen I: 1mm (based on standard settings, outer wall thickness 0.35 and inner wall thickness 0.3 ---> 0.35 + 0.3 + 0.35 = 1mm) Is printed exactly how I wanted. Test specimen 2: 1.23, because the default settings state a wall thickness of 1.23, consisting of 4 walls. Does print without an infill as well, just prints the lines, so this is also fine! Notable difference, specimen I ---> first print the outer walls, then the inner wall Specimen II --> first prints two inner walls, then the outer walls. Probably because it tries to squeeze 4 times a 0.35mm line into 1.23mm. Anyone who could give me insights on the line width of 0.35mm with a nozzle of 0.4mm. Sounds very counterintuitive to me, would expect it to be 0.48mm like most other printers/software. Does it have something to do with the 'air gap'? Would like to know how Cura deals with this, as I am looking for an 'ideal' minimum wall thickness for optimal strength and dimensional accuracy.=

    Bugged CURA GUI

    Intel(R) Iris(TM) Pro Graphics P580, guess it is fully up to date. The weird thing is that it does work sometimes, but not always...

    Perfect wall thickness

    Fellow 3D print friends, Wanted to develop a part with a thin (uniform) wall thickness, so I searched through the parameters and found that the line width is 0.35mm. So, my part (see figure), has a wall of 1.05mm, 3x0.35(outer walls) Now the 'problem', the nozzle deposits the outer walls nornally, however creates an 'infill pattern' for the inner walls. Is there anyone with a suggestion on how to solve this problem? Or what would be an optimal wall thickness? Would love to know this so I can multiply the 'line width' times X for thin walls. Cheers

    Bugged CURA GUI

    Sometimes we encounter problems with the CURA interface, i.e. trying to click a button only works when we hover the mouse a centimeter or so below the button. Highly frustrating Thanks to the latest patch this happens a lot less than before, however, it still does happen a lot at my colleague's computer. We tried changing the resolution of our laptops, but this didn't work. Would love to receive some help or, in case this is a common problem, solve this bug in the next update.

    Unnecessary support structures CURA

    Great, was looking for this option! However, I won't get rid of the last pieces of support at these places.. Is there a function in CURA that say: print bridges/overhangs smaller than X mm (for instance 1-5mm) without support?
  9. See picture below for the part that needs to be printed. Build orientation cannot be changed. Unnecessary supports are marked with red. Anyone who knows how to get rid of these supports? Support overhang angle is set at 55. Probably CURA adds them because of the fillets that are used (they create a '90 degree' overhang). Rather not use the 'support blocker' because it costs me a lot of time to add manually. Many thanks in advance
