  1. Bonjour à tous, J'ai fait quelques recherches, mais sûrement avec les mauvais termes, car je ne trouve aucune réponse à mon problème, donc j'ai souhaité d'abord l'exprimer en français pour simplifier les choses. Si l'un d'entre vous à l'issue du texte sait vers où m'orienter, ce serait déjà super ! J'utilise la dernière version de Ultimaker Cura, sur Mac. J'ai un fichier qui nécessite du support, donc tout est réglé pour la double impression. Au moment de changer de filament, la tête d'impression va vers la tour, comme d'habitude. Tout est comme je le souhaite, sauf un détail jamais rencontré auparavant : Juste devant la tour, la tête s'arrête. Elle marque une pause pendant laquelle du fil se remet à sortir. Au-delà du fait que la tour est normalement là pour ça, pour purger, c'est comme si le code voulait purger avant de purger… Or, ça crée un surplus de matière, et c'est catastrophique. D'une part parce que durant la pause de la tête, après quelques couches, la tête est posée sur un bouchon et la pression monte à l'intérieur (ce que je soupçonne d'être à l'origine de la sousextrusion du support)* et d'autre part, parce que cette même colline est heurtée à chaque aller-retour de la tête d'impression. La machine fait des sons inédits jusqu'à présent. je suis ça de très près, pour ne pas que ça s'endommage. Donc, question simple : L'un d'entre vous saurait-il où se situe la case à décocher dans les paramètres de Cura pour ne plus que la tête s'arrête devant la tour, continue son trajet et purge au bon endroit comme convenu ? Peut-être est-ce également un autre paramètre qui influe, comme par exemple une transition entre deux matières, une vérification de température dont je n'aurais pas connaissance ? J'ai cherché sur ce deuxième point, dans les paramètres de Cura, mais rien de ce que j'ai trouvé ne m'a semblé correspondre Je m'en remets à vous 😉 Merci pour votre aide * La sous extrusion venait du matériau : un filament soluble extrêmement sensible à l'humidité ambiante. Un passage de 45min au four à 80°C et la sous extrusion a disparu, le fil s'est asséché et durcit, et cesse de partir dans le ventilateur…
  2. Halo, I need to print a gear with 5 mm diameter, 5 mm height and 0.5 module with a hole of 1.9 mm diameter that will be used in a normal printer using Ultimaker 2+. I have realized somme pieces with PLA after long time research but it got broken in the machine. Can somebody give me idea on how to do a solid gear? Presently I have PLA, Nylon and ABS in stock. Thanks.
  3. Good morning my extension perfectly working in 3.2 on Prisa I3 mendel printer and developed in Python as required with all files. perfectly working in 3.2 crashes at first command in 3.3 . i am testing in 3.4 but i suppose is the same result . BedlevelPlugin.zip

    FreeCAD plug-in

    This is my first post, so I hope I am sending it to the correct part of the forum. I wanted to tag it Cura+Plug-ins, but could not find the Plug-in tag. I have installed the FreeCAD plug-in on Cura3.4 and the *.FCStd files are now selectable in the Open File box, but when I open one, I get an error message saying that the file is unreadable. Anyone know why, or had the same problem? HughAJ.
  5. Hi, as part of a showcase installation we need a simple way how to start the printout of an existing .gcode file (previously created using the Cura application) on a UM2Go printer (connected via USB cable) via a batch script or program. As the print should start in the background (as soon as the .gcode-file is transferred to and stored in a defined directory), we can’t use the normal Cura application. Does anyone know of a Windows(10) executable, script or other options to start printing a .gcode-file in the way described? Thanks in advance, Kai
  6. Setting the infill option "Minimum Infill Area" to larger than 100mm2 with Benchy results in missing skin in smaller deck compartment. I've attached screenshots and my preferences. Is this a bug? pla-0_15.curaprofile
  7. I've noticed that there's brim on the inside while using Cura 3.4.1 that's not the case with 3.4.0. I'm attaching layer views from both versions and my settings. Is this a known issue? pla-0_15.curaprofile
  8. I was infored when I opend up Cura that there was a update so I updated it now the print starts off the side of the bed not the middel of it can anyone help

    Loss of accuracy.

    Hello everyone, I just did maintenance on my printer (grease, check axes, belt tension and so on) and I ran a couple test prints to compare with the one I did the last time, in June, and there seems to be a slight problem: as you can see in the picture below, the Z on top of the black cube on right cube is clear and has very sharp corners. This cube was printed in June after my previous maintenance. The orange cube and the black one on the left were printed today and the Z is much less defined. I had the same problem before doing the maintenance, as I was testing my 0.6 solex hardcore. The cubes in the pictures have been printed a standard 0.4 UM printcore. The ones printed with the solex 0.6 hardcore show the same problem, but worst, I guess because the diameter of the printhead is bigger. I'm not too sure what is causing this or how to solve it, any help from the community would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  10. I went to Toolbox -> Browse Packages and received the diagnostic Could not connect to the Cura Package database. Please check your connection. There is nothing wrong with my "[internet] connection" so I don't understand this diagnostic. I'm using Cura 3.4.0 on Ubuntu 18.04
  11. Hello, I have just installed Cura on a Lenovo T430 laptop and tried to start it. However, after the splashscreen and displaying the disclaimer, cura.exe stops to work, Windows closes the program. I have added my stderr file. I have not done any changes and also tried to re-start with deleted cura folder in my local folder. stderr.log Kai.

    Volumetric extruding.

    I have been searching for a while now and cannot find a solution. I am using Cura 3.2.0 connecting to a Duet Wifi 1.21 with a coreXY and a diamond hotend. Every time i find some information on setting up to enable firmware retract I am told to set the GCode flavor to Reprap (volumetric). Do not have that as an option. I have Marlin (volumetric), but the duet does not like that flavor very well. I have read I can use Ulticode because its volumetric, but said I could not use Start GCode. But have tested that and it seems I still can. So not sure the version they were using. Will there be any compability issues with using Ultimaker 2 flavor? Am I missing the RepRap (volumetric) option for some reason? If anyone has a similar setup, mind sharing some settings? Ed
  13. Ultimaker Cura 3.4 is available! We’re happy to share that Ultimaker Cura 3.4 is now available to use. What do we have in stock for you this time? We have included new plug-ins, UX-enhancements and some improvements to the slicing engine. You can find more information about Ultimaker Cura 3.4 in our blog. I am happy to share some of my favorite improvements with you below. What are yours? Plugin updates! Cura Backups — Yes, this is great! When you have installed this plugin you’ll be able store settings, material and plugin backups in the cloud. You can do this using your Ultimaker community account if you prefer to keep 1 profile or create a separate new account. You’ll be able to access your configurations from every computer and location around the globe (..with internet) More integrations — You’re now able to use the following files directly in Ultimaker Cura: (thanks to @thopiekar!) Autodesk Inventor Blender OpenSCAD FreeCAD Slicing engine upgrades Infill support — When you enable infill support the Cura engine will only build support structures where it is necessary to support walls or top layers, like internal supports. This may result in faster print times without caving walls. (thank you @bagel-orb) Controlled retractions. New options to control retraction like: Max combing distance with no retract. When set to a non-zero value, combing travel moves that are longer than that distance will use retraction, to maintain optimal nozzle pressure for better print quality. (Thank you @smartavionics !) Maximum combing resolution. Combing travel moves are kept at least 1.5 mm long to prevent buffer underruns, for better print quality. Avoid supports when traveling. Added setting to avoid supports when performing travel moves. This minimizes the risk of the print head hitting support material, improving print (Thank you @bagel-orb!) Support wall line count —Added setting to configure how many walls to print around supports. UX-enhancements Settings filter timeout. For a better performance, the settings filter is now triggered on enter, or after a 500ms timeout. So you should expect Cura to run smoother while using it. Anonymous data sharing. We have changed the ‘Send anonymous data’ button so you can see more information first, and then decide to enable or disable. We’ve also added logging for the new events. This data can be used to benchmark performance on different machines. Third-party printers and stability fixes We’ve included a lot of Ultimaker Cura 3.4 bug fixes and enhancements to improve your user experience: Empty file name — If an empty filename job was sent to Cura Connect, Ultimaker Cura would report it as sent, but it would not appear in the Cura Connect queue. Empty job names are now detected and set to "unnamed" to prevent this from happening. Curaproject naming — Fixed bug related to two "curaprojects" in the file name when saving a project. We've recorded a video explaining some of the video's more in-depth: There is even more included in Ultimaker Cura 3.4. We owe a lot of gratitude towards: @thopiekar , @ahoeben, @smartavionics, @bagel-orb, jwalt, ohrn, ngraziano for their contributions. Without them, Ultimaker Cura wouldn’t be the same today. Thank you! Can't wait to get started? Download Ultimaker Cura 3.4 here!
  14. Hi, I have installed Cura 3.0 ( my OS is Win 10), like its new interface and features.

  15. Hello everyone, I am really hoping that someone can help me out with this. I had minor issues that I was trying to fix before I upgraded my marlin to 1.1.8 on my CR-10S. My issue at the time was little gaps in the prints, then I read an article speaking about the Infill Overlap so I changed that from 10% to 30% and that actually fixed my problem. Finally, I am getting the prints that I wanted. I then dared to see if the top layer could be as smooth as the bottom layer and I turned on ironing just to see what would happen. That didn’t work out so I turned it off. I remembered that I had read an article about someone trying the ironing feature and didn’t like it, so my conclusion was I didn’t like it either. I then decided to upgrade my Marlin as I want to upgrade my hotend and also add my E3D to my printer. Right now I am printing all the pieces that I need so I can do all my mods without trying to upgrade then find out that I am missing something. While trying to print all the pieces I started seeing all of these issues with my prints. I am getting a lot of stringing, when my print job is running I can hear the nozzle rubbing against the part that its printing after it gets to a few layers. You can actually hear the nozzle rubbing against the part as it moves. I only see the stringing if I am printing multiple parts at the same time, for one part there is no stringing that I can see. At first I thought that my belt was loose, I adjusted and tightened the belt - well that didn't fix anything. Then I thought my table wasn’t leveled, I leveled the ends, print jobs stayed the same nothing changed. I then leveled the middle of the bed since all jobs are printed from the middle and not the ends of the table. That didn’t change anything, still stuck trying to figure this out. This is what I see that’s happening. As the job is printing it looks like instead of the hotend going up as it prints a layer its coming down and rubbing against the layer it just printed, then it goes up and the routine stays the same. I have attached two pics, one of a part that was printed before and after the marlin upgrade. I even went back to stock settings with a profile to see if anything changed and it still prints the same. I have ordered a piece of 12 x 12 glass for the bed and I should have it this weekend, but I really need to get this figured out. The only parts in my profile that I normally change are the following and I do use a .6mm nozzle. Print temperature initial layer 200 -> 210 Wall thickness 0.6 -> 1.2 Wall line count 1 -> 2 Infill before walls (checked) Also, the jerking back and forth I don’t like as the table the printer is sitting on really rocks. I don’t mess with the speed settings too much because I don’t understand them enough. Can anyone offer some advice on what I should try? I can’t believe that I went from good prints to headaches literally overnight. I can’t blame the marlin upgrade as there has to be something else involved. I followed this guide when making changes for the Marlin upgrade to 1.1.8 https://printedsolid.com/blogs/news/installing-marlin-1-1-6-on-your-cr-10s-with-mesh-bed-leveling Appreciate any help from you folks, this is very time consuming and it's driving me nuts. Thanks
  16. I was printing a somewhat complex and tall (1:5 aspect ratio) part (ABS) with several locations of overhang inside and outside the model, and as a result had to print supports (PVA). I set the minimum overhang angle to 15 degrees, but when I printed it, the model was encased in supports along sheer sides that don't require supports. To further illustrate what the slicer is doing, I have another example: I had to print some small parts and a large part, so I lumped them all together on the build plate for a neat overnight print. I had supports on for the benefit of the large part, the small parts have 0 locations of overhang. Yet the sides of the small parts were surrounded by support material (this time Breakaway). This is not only wasteful, but it also scars the sides of the part, why does the slicer construct these supports, and what settings could change this?
  17. As the title says. How would I do this? The default gcode file that came with it prints perfectly fine. But any print I try starts too high.
  18. Hi, My company purchased last week an Ultimaker 2 Extended+. We have made few tests and we'are pretty pleased with the results. Except that when it goes from a contour to another (walls?!), the printer leaves some marks behind, see picture. I've looked on the Internet and people talk about changing the nozzle temperature and travel speed. I did that, without succes. The parts in the pictures are made after changes. before, with Cura Basic Settings was worse. Any advice? Thanks. IMG_185A: temp. 185ºC, travel speed 175mm/s IMG_190A: temp. 190ºC, travel speed 150mm/s IMG_190B: temp. 190ºC, travel speed 200mm/s
  19. Hi folks The build plate of my brand new Ultimaker S5 undergoes active leveling before each print. It results in either of my 2 extruders over or under extruding. Is there a way i can disable this active levelling process before each print, as i personally prefer manual leveling. The prints doesnt look that cool compared to the price i paid for this printer. Hope there is a solution to this.
  20. Ultimaker Cura 3.4 | Beta It’s time for the next step in the evolution of Ultimaker Cura. We’re excited to share Ultimaker Cura 3.4 Beta with you! This new version holds a lot of improvements for UX, new plugins and some very interesting upgrades to the slicing engine. Before we get started, I would like to remind you that even though we have tested this version internally for major bugs, we can’t yet guarantee the same reliability and quality as the stable version. Therefore, if you are working on an important or time-sensitive project, we recommend to continue and use the stable version. Thank you! So, without further ado. What are those new improvements? UX improvements. Toolbox. The plugin browser has been renamed into the ‘Toolbox’. Graphical elements are added such as tiles with contain more information upon clicking. Upgradable bundled resources. It’s possible now to have multiple versions of bundled resources installed; the bundled version and the downloaded upgrade. If an upgrade in the form of a package is present, the bundled version will not be loaded. If it’s not present, Ultimaker Cura will revert to the bundled version. Configuration error assistant. Detect and show potential configuration file errors to users, like incorrect files and duplicate files in material or quality profiles. Information is stored and communicated to the user to prevent crashing in the future. Reprap/Marlin GCODE flavor. RepRap firmware now lists values for all extruders in the "Filament used" GCODE comment. Contributed by @smartavionics Plugin updates. Backup and restore. We’ve added the functionality to backup and restore your settings and profiles to the cloud using the Cura Backup plugin. This could be a most welcome improvement when you have a custom machine, custom profiles or work with multiple computers. Autodesk Inventor integration. Open AutoDesk inventor files (parts, assemblies, drawings) directly in Ultimaker Cura. (Thanks to @thopiekar!) Blender, OpenSCAD, FreeCAD integration. Open these files directly into Ultimaker Cura. (Again, thank you @thopiekar) New version of OctoPrint (Thank you @ahoeben !) and MakePrintable. Slicing engine upgrades. Infill support. When your model doesn’t need all the strength that infill gives, but you do want to give support where your top layers need it you may want to use infill support. When enabled, it generates internal support for part structures that need support. (Thank you @bagel-orb !) Print outside perimeter before holes. This prioritizes outside perimeters before printing holes. By printing holes as late as possible, there is a reduced risk of the travel moves showing unwanted artifacts on your surface. Many thanks to @smartavionics Disable omitting retractions in support. Previous versions had no option to disable omitting retraction moves when printing supports, which could cause issues with third-party machines or materials. An option has been added to disable this and thus enable retractions when printing support. ( @bagel-orb!) Support wall line count. Added setting to configure how many walls to print around supports. (Thanks @bagel-orb !) Max combing distance with no retraction. This value determines the maximum distance your printhead will travel without retraction. When set to a non-zero value, combing travel moves that are longer than that distance will use retraction. (Thank you @smartavionics !) Bug fixes. We fixed a lot of bugs in this version. I want to highlight a few but please navigate Extensions > Changelog > Show changelog for a full list of bug fixes. Empty file names. If the filename is empty when you save and send your sliced model to the printer, Ultimaker Cura will report it as sent but it would never arrive. Now, if the job name is empty, it is detected and listed as ‘unnamed’. Print job name reslice. Fixed behavior where print job name changes back to origin when reslicing. Curaproject naming. Fixed bug related to two "curaprojects" in the file name when saving a project. Discard/keep. Fixed a bug where customized settings didn’t give an 'discard or keep' dialog when changing material. Prime tower purge fix. Prime tower purge now starts away from the center, minimizing the chance of overextrusion and nozzle obstructions. Thanks to @bagel-orb No support on first layers. Fixed a bug related to no support generated causing failed prints when model is floating above build plate. As a final note, a big hand for @ahoeben , jwalt, ohrn, ngraziano, @smartavionics, @bagel-orb and @thopiekar . Your contributions help everyone, every day! Thank you! But this was just my list, there is more! Don’t care and you’re ready to try it out? Download Ultimaker Cura 3.4 | Beta here. Do you prefer to continue and read more about? Visit our blog. As always, we’re looking forward receiving your feedback. It is because of your feedback we are able to continue and improve it.
  21. Hello I would like to know if there is a way to clear the print job history. More specific one or more jobs or clear the the whole list altogether. The reason for this is I printed a part a few times with different settings and i would like to remove the ones that are not correct. This so that one of my colleagues can not accidentally reprint the wrong one.
  22. I am Stefania Dinea, an architect who mixes 3D printing, VR, parametric design and blogging daily and I will share some of my 3D printing tips & tricks with you. This series is my overview about the process and my work-around. Please feel free to comment and add.

Starting with revit 2018.3 Revit had the stl export as an add-in, however for those of you who work in older versions here is how you go about it. Go to the X (the blue and white one)- to open Autodesk app store Search for stl and the following apps will appear: You will want STL exporter version x – corresponding to the version of Revit you own. Remember it will export all elements in the view – if you don't want to see something – hide in view, and if you want to see 1 element of out 1000, you can isolate in view. In the export settings, pay attention to the units the export is done in, that will play a major role when scaling in cura –and it will help you see where you are at. For the site I will use meters. Also, it will be good to be constant, if you start with meters, you need to keep it like that for the whole project so you don't get confused. CURA 1. SCALE We all know in architecture scale plays a big role – therefore this is another aspect that you need to pay attention to. Taking alternative 1 into consideration and our topography/massing examples we know the following: Our example file in x-y is 87x88 m I have exported, as I said using meter units instead of mm And in cura we will see the following: Also, one can use online scale converters such as: http://www.scalemodelersworld.com/online-scale-converter-tool.html We therefore can conclude that our model is in 1:1000 scale at 100% in cura And 200% will take us to 1:500 However, when we talk about site plans, a 1:400 would be desired therefore a 250% scale in cura would be ideal, however the site is a little too big for that, so, we will go back to revit and readjust with the section box. But first, you can use the scale calculator to see what maximum sizes you would need. So rescaling the section box, you get to print in scale 1:400 and fit in the building plate. This is all for this post, I am slowly moving into the Cura tips and tricks (better say my tips and tricks) - as usual feel free to say what works for you, what is your work-around in your main software or in Revit. Also guys and girls, what are your expectations for the summer - should I keep posting or should I take a break until august? up to you! NEXT ON THIS SERIES: 08 SINGLE EXTRUSION

    Support Bug in CURA 3.4.0

    Ich habe folgendes Problem festgestellt: Ich habe ein Objekt (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2974862) bei welchem ich mit innenliegendem Support die "obere Kopffläche" stützen wollte. Gleichzeit wollte ich die Haftung des schmalen ersten Layers verbessern, indem ich mit Brim arbeite. Nach mehreren Fehldrucken wegen fehlender Haftung des Supports habe ich festgestellt, dass der Support erst im Layer 2 anfängt. Screenshot Layer 1 ohne inneren Support. Wenn ich den brim gegen einen skirt tausche habe ich auf einmal Support ab dem ersten Layer Gegentest mit einem zweiten Objekt auf der Druckplatte, welches äußeren Support braucht zeigt, dass dort trotz brim der äußere support (vorne links) da ist, während der Katzenkopf hinten keinen inneren support im ersten Layer hat
  24. any time I load an stl file on cura 3.4 it crashes eventually it will load but when I go to load it or scale It down it crashes, I need some help

    Carbon Print mit UM3 / Cura

    Moin Moin, ich habe im Test gerade das Carbon Filament von eins3D. Der erste Druck sah schon sehr vielversprechend aus. Wunderschöne samtige Oberfläche. Ich brauche es wegen der Stabilität und der etwas höheren Hitzebeständigkeit und Schlagfestigkeit. Die BAuteile werden von -30 Grad - + 40 Grad eingesetzt. Na ja, und es sieht halt sehr Edel aus. Leider habe ich an der Aussenhaut einige Strings in der Ecke die ich auch nach absenken der Druckgeschwindigkeit auf 30mm/sek einfach nicht wegbekommen. Si lassen sich zwar sehr leicht wegrubbeln bzw schleifen aber es soll schon professionell sein. Als Stützmaterial hat sich PVA als nicht geeignet erwiesen da es einfach nicht vernünftig haftet. ISt das weisse Material was man im vorderen Bereich sieht. Gibt es hier schon jemanden der Erfahrungen in der Form mit Carbon Filament gesammelt hat, das er mir ein paar Tipps geben kann. Hier mal die für mich wichtigsten Randdaten des Drucks als Fotos mit dabei Auch ein Pic des Druckes habe ich beigefügt. Würde mich super über ein paar Hilfreiche Tipps freuen. Auch so die Düse ist 0.4 Hardcore 3D Solex wegen Abrieb..
