  1. Thank you, I think this was it, I haven't changed / didn't know about MAX DEVIATION setting, it makes sense now. I will make some test and let you know.
  2. Now I know where to write about bugs 🙂 Thanks. But what about my questions, does anything change when you alter the MAXIMUM RESOLUTION setting ? I can't make any version of Cura to generate a low poly model by adjusting that option, this is why I think it's ignored completely. Here is the same model, in ideaMaker, something is changing when I increase that number
  3. I will check it in the next days, to see how stable 2019-11-28 version is (btw, how to see the version number? you mentioned 1012 .. but as I mentioned in my last post, in Help - About there is no version, for cura master 😞 ) But regarding MAXIMUM RESOLUTION setting, could you see any change in the gcode if you alter that setting? with any model, not just mine, because I think that option is totally ignored, in both versions, official, and cura master too. In the GCODE I posted above, isn't it weird to see so many lines with points so close one to another, if I used MAX
  4. I only worked with Cura master build, but I don't know why on my workshop PC, the version I installed about 30 days ago, it crashes very offten. Since than I installed the official release. Why Cura master doesn't have a version number in Help -> About window? I installed 2019-11-28 version now, and will see if it does crash again. In preview mode I still think Cura does nothing when I alter the MAXIMUM RESOLUTION setting, I increased it to 10mm , and I still see all the lines curved beautifully. If it will limit the segment minimum length to 10mm the model shoul
  5. @1Ghasthunter1 have you tried an 3d bit board ? I'm curious if this will solve the issue, if the board is able to process more gcode lines at once. On my new computer I have issues with the latest Cura master version, it crashes very often, but with official Cura i think the resolution setting still doesn't do anything, I set the maximum resolution to a high number, like 2, 3 and 5mm .. but the gcode as almost the same number of lines, and the printer is making the stutering noise almost on all lines of the attached model. I have tested IdeaMaker 3.4.2 slicer, and the r
  6. There still isn't any option to sort the order of the objects printed ? For example those knobs I want to be printed from left to right, or right to left, front row first, and than move to row #2 .. and so on. No option yet to do this ?
  7. I installed the PRINTER SETTINGS plugin and I found 2 two variables HEAT UP and COOL DOWN, but in my first test I didn't noticed any difference between the g-code generated with a value of 2 deg / sec .. compared to the gcode generated with a value of 1deg/s, all the M104 lines ware exactly at the same line in both files, I expected to find the M104 S255 line a few lines above, in the file that was set with 1deg/sec, isn't this what the HEAT UP option should do ? Today I mounted again the dual nozzle head and started the tests again, but until I figure out what's up with HEAT UP a
  8. Thank you for confirming that something is weird, but theoretically, the maximum resolution will be the minimum distance between 2 points, in the gcode x / y coordonates?
  9. Easier than the hairspray 🙂 ? I'm just using the hairspray for about 2 - 3 seconds maximum and spray from back to the front, I have all my leadscrews greased. I also worried about hairspray sticking to leadscrews but if it's sprayed in the opposite direction, there can't be any problem. I mostly print PETG, but yesterday I switched to PLA to finished the opened rolls 🙂
  10. Why not try hair spray instead, I just started up and print PLA and PETG with cold bed, without any problem regarding print adhesion to the glass surface! And also is very easy to get the part from the glass with a sharp knife. Since I tried hairspray, I permanently have one near the printer, also a Glass Cleaner bottle and a roll of paper towels, all those 3 things permanently near the printer , like the filament rolls, those are mandatory for me 🙂
  11. Maybe the Combing is enabled, and this causes to move along the already printed parts. Just try to disable to see if it changes the TRAVEL paths. https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/52507-travel
  12. I use a 0.6mm nozzle, and a 0.58mm line width, with those settings cura is already overlapping the walls from layer~85 and up, I didn't understood why it didn't also on the lower layers too. I also tried to set the number of walls to a higher number, but in that area it did not made more than 4. The only option that completely removed the yellow small segments was FILL GAPS BETWEEN WALLS , I unchecked it, and that space remained empty. But with smartavionics version of cura, it did a very good job, it filled that space with cilindrical lines, exactly like the walls.
  13. With your build and SPIRALIZE OUTER CONTOUR active, and layer time set to low values like 0s or 2s (will try to set it back to 10s) it seems the PART COOLING FAN doesn't start up, I just noticed as I'm making some tests to find out why the printer is stuttering when printing fast, round objects. Wil try without spiralize, to see if the problem comes from there or not. UPDATE. It seems the part cooling fan is not starting up anymore, no matter what cura versdion I use. In GCODE I should be looking for M106 to start the part cooling fan and M107 to stop, righ
  14. I can't find any infill pattern named CIRCULAR, but I tried concentric and it didn't change the tiny lines between walls, it only changed the bottom infill, BUT ... I just installed CURA master (Cura-mb-master-win64-20190113.exe) and opened exactly the same .3mf file saved from Cura 3.6.0, and out of the box it did a much better pattern for the yellow wall, with FILL GAPS BETWEEN WALLS option active, with INFILL set to GRID, all exactly as Cura 3.6.0 (left image CURA 3.6.0 / right image Cura master .. weird that there is no version number in Help -> About )
  15. Spiralize makes only a single wall ? I need the internal diameter to be as I modeled it (conical shape)
