  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 MAXIMUM RESOLUTION 10mm ? This is why I think that setting is ignored. PS . Where to report bugs/crashes in cura master? are there any logs generated? (haven't looked in the install folder yet, but iof there are any logs , let me know the location, I can send it if it helps) Thank you.
  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 should be a very low poly model. I haven't tried to print but I'm sure the printer will make that weird noise even with the Cura master 2019-11-28 version, and when it does the LEDs on the board are blinking so fast as it creates the impression they are full on, I attached the 3mf file and gcode file. Here is a sectionof the gcode, line 100 to 106: G1 X119.017 Y185.093 E5.69214 G1 X119.172 Y185.868 E5.74932 G1 X119.247 Y186.638 E5.80528 G1 X119.291 Y187.558 E5.87191 G1 X119.289 Y188.349 E5.92913 G1 X119.207 Y189.136 E5.98637 G1 X119.046 Y189.911 E6.04363 This was generated even if I set the MAXIMUM RESOLUTION to 10mm, I know this number is way to high, but I wanted to see if cura does anything when modifying that setting, and I think it doesn't changes anything. Maybe there is another setting I should make, or maybe there is a bug, and cura ignores the number set for MAXIMUM RESOLUTION calapod v3 - cleme mai lungi cu 2mm res 10mm.3mf calapod v3 - cleme mai lungi cu 2mm Cura Master res 10mm.gcode
  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 result is much better, and actually if I change the value of MINIMAL SEGMENT LENGTH something is changing, in good or bad depanding if I decrease or increase the value. I don't want to move to another slicer, and really hope you guys (ultimaker team) can solve those bugs. It's all because the printing speed is high (100mmps) and the code still generates many small segments even if the resolution was set to an very high number, like 5mm! For example MINIMAL SEGMENT LENGTH (set in IdeaMaker) to 0.1mm creates a curve with quite visible straight lines (~about 3mm long), but if I decrease that value to 0.05 it actually creates a beautiful surface with no stuttering noise on the printer, there is just an tight internal arc that is generating some stuttering noise Orange model is printed using Cura 4.4, Black model is printed using Idea Maker (I don;t like the seams and top surface with IdeaMaker, but probably by tweaking settings those issues can be fixed) calapod v3 - cleme mai lungi cu 2mm.stl
  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 and COOL DOWN settings I used the same temperature for INITIAL and FINAL PRINTING TEMPERATURE so it keeps both nozzles hot. And also disabled WAIT FOR NOZZLE HEAT UP. There is no pause between color changes with those settings, but it makes a little hop (, a movement on Z axis up, and than back down) when it moves from PRINTED PART to PRIME TOWER , for both support section and part sections, and I don't know what it causing this hop, and how it can be eliminated? Please check this video, at second 11 you see the hop (a movement on z axis only, up, and than back down) I'm talking about Coasting set to 0.5mmc and minimum volume to 2mmc, seems to help reduce the extra material extruded when that "hop" happens, and there ware no empty space in the printed part, comparing to what CURA is showing in the preview, probably my long (50cm) bowden tube act as a spring and it extrudes more material even when extruder motor stops. The printed part looks like this bellow, there are no empty spaces where coasting is stopping extrusion, in the blue material (in my final part that will be PVA filament) you can still see over-extrusion but only because of that UP and DOWN movement. Any help tracking down the setting that generates that UP and DOWN movement is appreciated, any other suggestions are also welcome! TEST dual colors - heatUP1sec - oozeSHIELD - coasting.gcode
  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, right ? capac picior scaun v1.4 spiralize 0.1mm resolution - skirt - min layer time 0s.gcode capac picior scaun v1.4 spiralize 0.01mm resolution - skirt - min layer time 2s - initial fan speed 60p.gcode
  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 ) From now on I will primarily use this version, until I will find any bugs, if there are any...
  15. Spiralize makes only a single wall ? I need the internal diameter to be as I modeled it (conical shape)
