  1. here's a suggestion: can you make it not show the red overhang warning for parts that are touching the bed? or perhaps show in a different color, would be useful. thanks
  2. hi, is there a way to make cura don't show the overhand warning in red where the model is touching the bed?
  3. can you pin the side panel like the older version? I don't see the need for a whole screen viewport as you don't really do any modeling on cura, and most of the time you're just tweaking settings (at least for me).
  4. hi, I love the feature to specify X and Y positions of the Z seam, but it's sort of a hassle to count the grid lines to figure out where you want the seam. is there a way to visualize the specified position? or perhaps an indicator of the mouse cursor's position as reference? if not, wouldn't it be a very useful addition?
  5. hi, doesn't support blocks work with custom support meshes? I know I could just edit my custom mesh to exclude the parts I'm trying to exclude with the support block, but it would be much easier to see it in real time inside cura's viewport.
  6. well, so the thing is I have this printer for like 2 months and I've experienced a bad case of stringing out of the box. I've been playing with every possible setting, reading everything about it online, forums, articles, guides, trying to fix stringing. changing temperature, retraction, coasting, calibrating filament diameter and extruder steps, nothing made a meaningful difference. I gave up at a certain point and accepted that either the extruder or the filaments that I have access to are bad, until I tried to go back to default settings and disabling z hop, and for my surprise, no more stringing whatsoever. after experimenting some more, I realized that the Z axis speed is too slow in this printer, it makes it impossible to break the filament string with a travel move because by the time the printer is done lifting the extruder for the z hop, the pressure relief from the retraction is over, filament has already started oozing again, and travel moves no matter how fast, are not enough to break the string anymore. and not by coincidence, that's when I started having these knocking over problems. so basically I can have pancakes or spaghetti lol, can't get rid of both. so that's why I was wondering if I could somehow get rid of knocking prints over without z hop, because I tried everything I could to get rid of stringing with z hop enabled and failed, now I'm trying to get rid of knocking over with z hop disabled
  7. Hi, my models are always getting knocked over if I have more than 1 piece printing at the same time, sometimes even if it's just one piece. I always use rafts and hairspray and even so prints get knocked over. is this because of acceleration and jerk? cura defaults for this printer are 500 for accel, 5000 for travel accel, 20 jerk and 30 travel jerk. I used simplify3d before and it didn't have accel and jerk controls, and printing seemed waaay slower, even if I set printing speed to 120mm/s (double of my cura which is set to default 60mm/s). I get kinda tense watching cura gcodes print because it seems just too fast, since I'm used to simplify3d (not sure which accel/jerk values it used, I suppose it uses my firmware defaults) I never had much knocking over problems with simplify3d, however I always had stringing issues, which I don't with cura, and I feel like cura has way more control of everything, so I decided to stick with it, but I can never rest when I'm printing multiple pieces at the same time. could accel/jerk be the issue? any suggestions for accel/jerk values for this printer?
