  1. Cool that seems to have done the trick for me, thanks! I am curious if the behaviour noted above in my original post is expected or if it is a small bug in the slicing?
  2. Hello: I have noticed a small issue which is creating a weakness in my thin parts where the two materials join (I am printing two colours of PLA). If I slice the model in any version of Cura (I have tried 4.7 through 4.10) I have noticed a bit of variance in the initial layer for both extruders depending upon the adhesion type selected, notice the gap between the B and the stick, the only change made between screen captures here is the adhesion type. My goal is to have the two models connect as in the second image with the adhesion type set to Brim but I do not want a brim on the print as remo
  3. Ran a print in my Ultimaker 3 and came back about four hours in to find that the model popped off the build plate which then plugged up the area where the nozzles protrude through the fan housing. Eventually the build up of material popped the fan housing down, forced the glass off of the build plate and left me with the mess in the attached photos. The printer happily printed away shoving the glass around the build plate extruding more and more material. At the moment both nozzles are firmly cemented into the printer and I knocked off one of the fan power ports for the main board. A
  4. Thank you, I will have to watch for that now that I know what it does - not that my profiles are overly customized, rather I am trying to limit failure points (currently all of my prints are failing after the first two)...
  5. Good day: I have developed a couple of custom profiles and saved them while saving my model. As time goes on I have tweaked the profiles and have also exported them to a file on my desktop. I sometimes run into issues with my prints and it usually is a result of some setting going wrong which I have previously fixed. My question, if I have a profile set in Cura, say this profile is called "Printing A", the project file (.3mf) references the same profile. I choose "Update Existing" on opening the file does this update only those settings in the application (loaded in memory) leavin
  6. Thank you you for the tip, I will give it a go and will be heading off to watch your video right after this is sent. I think that I should grab some IPA and give the glass a good wipe and polish with a clean paper towel. I did do a bed levelling last night and that did help with the under extrusion issue. After levelling the first layer of my print looked great, the second layer is when everything peeled off of the plate and remained on the nozzle.
  7. I have been chasing my tail lately in regards to build plate adhesion. Recently I cleaned the stock glass build plate with Windex as it was covered in finger prints following moving the printer across town. And this is where I believe everything when horribly wrong and continues to do so. I am attempting to print thin parts in PLA with a customized default profile and absolutely nothing sticks to the build plate, I can sometimes get a portion of the first layer down (although it is suffering from under extrusion). If I let the print run through I end up with a glob of melted plastic stuck to t
  8. I've been working on a couple different scale models of microwave and transmission towers lately, something that I plant to offer for sale in the coming weeks... The microwave tower stands about two feet tall.
  9. I am glad that I was pointed in the direction of this post, it has helped out a lot with a current project. I am wondering if the great developments made by @burtoogle in this branch of Cura will be implemented in a future version of the main trunk of the software by the Ultimaker team?
  10. Good afternoon, I am in the process of developing a model kit which consists of some trusses, well a lot of trusses, which in the real world are fabricated with steel angles. The screen grab (brass coloured) from Solid Edge should hopefully give a bit more insight into what I am hoping to achieve without releasing everything that I am working on. I have made the model and printed it successfully on the Ultimaker 3 but I would like to clean it up a bit. Currently I am using Cura 4.3 to slice up my model and prepare it for printing but I am noticing that some internal thin walls show
