  1. Yes, I found a comment about it in the RawMouse post by burtoogle. I had to switch negative values to positive and vice versa on "axes" for spacemouse in the config. Thank you for the help!
  2. Ah, I'll take a look at that. I searched through the info provided on the Github page but couldn't see anything about changing direction there, so I assumed it wasn't possible. Thanks for clarifying!
  3. I'd like to bump this suggestion for 2021 as well. I have tried the RawMouse plugin but everything moves in reverse compared to when I'm in any other 3D software. I've tried changing the mouse settings while in Cura and checking the "reverse" option on all the different movements, but it doesn't change anything when I try using it in Cura, it still moves in the same directions. Not sure if it's something I'm doing wrong or if my Spacemouse settings are acting up and not applying after changes, but I can't get it to work properly. If someone knows what I'm doing wrong feel free
  4. A quick google search gives you this article: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360012090199-Ultimaker-S3-vs-Ultimaker-S5 Along with an older thread from this forum: As for S6, there doesn't seem to be any announcements or news regarding a new model as far as I can find. Therefore I'm doubtful that one would be released before the end of this year.
  5. I have been using the preset settings for temperatures initially but later I've managed to get better results through tips I've read here on the forum. Firstly I'm raising the bed temp to about 100-110C since that seems to be the consensus here to work best with ABS. Nozzle temp is preset from the machine at 260C, but lately I've started lowering it to 250 because it seems to work better. And I have front cover on the printer but no top cover. With PLA I usually stick to the preset bed heat since it's been working fine, but I'm usually changing the nozzle temp and print speed on the fly w
  6. I know it won't be as smooth as with smaller nozzles, but the surfaces ends up being so uneven that it doesn't look like it's solely a matter of "resolution". It looks like certain areas of large flat surfaces get distorted while the rest of it works fine and end up like I'm expecting. It persists through the entire print as well, only smaller surfaces look better. For example it's usually most prominent in the center of a large round surface, where it looks like it prints uneven on the exact same place on every line, creating one or several ditches or elevations across the middle.
  7. Hello! I've recently started printing with an Ultimaker 2+ through my new job. I've experimented a whole lot with both PLA and ABS and it's working great for the most part. However, I'm having some issues with the larger nozzles. If I'm printing something big that doesn't need that much details I'd like to use the 0.6 or 0.8 nozzles to save time, but larger flat layers like the bottom layers tend to distort in a wierd way. The printer leaves "ditches" or bumps in lines on the surface. My first thought was under/over extrusion, but I figure that since the dis
