  1. Hello I am printing some parts on a dual extruder printer with two colors. I believe that the print will benefit from changing the printing order of the colors. Do I have to switch the spools or is possible to tell Cura to start priniting with extruder 2?
  2. Hellol Enigma_M4 Thanks for the reply, I've found it. That is the place. If anybody else missed it: In the Material/Print Core menu select the material In the Material menu select the context menu by the dots in the upper right corner In the context menu use the "Move" button to open the Move Material menu
  3. Hello I am working with an Ultimaker S3 and I wonder whether there is a way to force the extrusion of some material via the LCD menus, same as with the load material procedure? I am working with different print core diameters (0.4 and 0.25) and the procedure for switching print cores will pull back the filament just an inch or so and after changing the core the filament is only moved forward to reach the core without any extrusion. If I have used a different material with the newly inserted core there is enough material remaining in the core to print a few layers with t
  4. It's just easier to make an automated comparision from pure lists: I am quite happy with it. BTW: In my code I have kept the pulling of the settings from the extruder stack. It seems the stack is requesting the values from the right place. The benefit is that for the Machine settings it gives the correct Nozzle ID and Diameter for both extruders. Maybe it's possible to get this values in the same way as the material from the global stack extruders values: # Material # M_Name = extruder.material.getMetaData().get("material", ""
  5. Thanks for completing the changes and building the package. If you like to maintain it, I think it is better to format numerical values like this: if str(GetType)=='float': GelValStr="{:.5f}".format(GetVal).rstrip("0").rstrip(".") else: GelValStr=str(GetVal) it is better mimicking the GUI. The original code will give rounded values with 2 decimal places even when the GUI shows more decimals. For myself I have changed the plugin to make an CSV file because my main purpose is to compa
  6. Based on the wiki explanation about profiles and settings here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Profiles-&-Settings i have just made minor changes to the code (marked with ->). At the moment just enough to test on one extruder stack.

  7. My joy was a bit premature. When looking at the values from the HTML output of the plugin some of the settings would differ from the values given in the Cura GUI. I have hesitate for some days to look into the code of the plugin as I have never coded Python nor have I found many informations about the internal objects structure of Cura. Cause i'd really like to have a readable export of settings I have now tried. It seems that in the plugin all settings values are pulled from global stack machine_manager = application.getMachineManager() glo
  8. That's great. I can easily pull it from the HTML to do kind of automated comparision.
  9. Has anyone ever made a feature request about this here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues ? I have imported some materials from marketplace which are lacking profiles (only Fast and Fine are existing). For technical stuff I love Engineering Intent Profiles. But I can't simply copy them as custom profiles because they are relying on other profiles that won't exist for the imported materials. A good explanation about deriving settings from the different profile layers is here (thanks to nallath): https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Profiles-&-Set
  10. Great information how the settings are derived from the different (profile)layers. Thanky sou so much.
  11. Hello nallath, thank you for making this point clear. But by playing a little more with the profiles i found that there seems to be a bit more "magic" in the them. If I take a profile from a specific material e.g. Ultimaker Tough PLA, Profile "Fine" and change a setting (maybe brim to skirt) so I can save it as custom profile it will reflect the original settings of the material/print settings profil. If i choose a different material e.g Ultimaker ABS, Profile "Fine" there might be some settings with a different value, in this case infill
  12. Hello quite new to Cura I am wondering about the relation between Materials and Print Setting Profiles. I have loaded a material from marketplace (BASF Ultrafuse PET) and it has two profiles (Fast and Fine). After comparing the Fast profile with some Generic and Ultimaker profiles it seems that the BASF profile is based on the generic CPE profile with the material specific settings (e.g. temperature) mixed in. When I export the material settings the XML contains only the values that can be managed in the Preferences/Materials window, There seems to be no information about a Print Setting
  13. Hi ultiarjan, thank you for your reply. Yes, that's my setup. While I have made some new screenshots I have figured out where my problem is: If i keep the settings under support as in the first picture below (every extruder selection set to Extruder 2) I'll get and infill with PVA made up from triangels (picture 1 of my original post) with a density of 50%. If I change the infill extruders like on picture 2 below, then Cura will automatically use different settings for the infill (Pattern = Zig Zag, Density = 15% and also some other settings are changed). Th
  14. Hello Coming from Slicer I am new to Cura and can't figure out the correct settings to print only the support interfaces from extruder 2 (solubel material). I know that I can set the extruder for the support, for first support layer, for support infill and for the support interface. I have tried a couple of combinations but every time the resulting infill is quite different from the one I'll get when the support is printed only with one extruder. As an example I have sliced Benchy3D with the basic "Fine" profile with minor changes (Skirt + Prime Tower). Screenshots are layer
