  1. The Cylinder Support Blocker has saved my project as I used it to block Fuzzy skin on my slightly conical half pipe. Not only is it a cylinder but it somehow automatically conformed to my half pipes taper. The problem I have is that I don't know if it conformed to my model or if I did something to taper it. ? I kept trying to replicate it but can't figure it out. Another thing is that I get two skins when I use the blocker. There are skins between the wall of the model and the wall of the blocker (if that make any sense). I will attach a screen shot. I tried making zero walls on the blocker but that didn't work. Love the Cylinder Blocker!
  2. Hi! I'm printing a huge part, most of which is just a bulk cylinder with some simple internal structures. However, the outer surface is very curvilinear (imagine a vase) and should be as smooth as you can get. I'm using one of the big Modix printers (Big meter), and the printing time for the whole part at 0.1mm layer height exceeds 11 days... Adaptive layers don't help, as the outer surface is shaky all along the part. Infill is already at maximum, and it cannot be just hollow. Can I set up two different layer thicknesses for two of my nozzles: say, for the 0.4 one goes with 0.1mm layer height for the nice outer wall, and then every 4th layer the 0.8 nozzle fill up the remaining volume at one go? Thank you
  3. Hi there, I am very often in the need to print multi-meshes part that are stacked vertically, but not merged. Think about a rugged laptop that yould like to print to get a dumb object so that you can try and place in a car, on a specific dock, etc : just an externally representative and plasticky laptop. But what you have is a 3D CAD Laptop with EVERYTHING inside it, which means the backplate, the motherboard, all the electronic equipements, the keyboard, the screen, the upper front plate, etc. Everything is separated by a tiny distance, because this is how we assemble thing in CAD, there is always a tiiiiiny gap between elements. Which is really not convenient for 3D printing. I've detailed this need in this specitic thread if you want more details : Now, i've been dealing with this issue with the X/Y Horizontal Expansion that helps me filling the gap automatically, at the cost of a slight external dimensions error which is most of the time Okay (since it expand in all X/Y direction, outer wall expand as well). In the laptop example, it helps making sure that every keys of the keyboard, won't fall apart and stick to the keyboard since they've expand horizontally and merge the keyboard structure. Alleluia. But... The vertical axis remains the same. The backplate that "look" to be merged to everything else, is not. It's slighlty separated by a tiny gap, and will mean that the slicer will add some Support to deal with this gap. Same goes for EVERY parts that are stacked one above the others. Using some PVA as a support, it would mean that everything would fall appart after printing, nothing is really merged, attached, etc. In the linked thread, we talk about the 3D CAD modification that could help merging parts. Here, I want to ask if it would be possible to get a Z Vertical Expansion so that it would expand every surface by a user specified parameter (in mm), and allow to fill the vertical gap automatically. Sure, everything inside would still be there, the unnecessary detailed motherboard and electronics, etc, but that's another problem, at least everything would stick together if the initial vertical gap is below the vertical expansion set by the user. As an option, it would definitely need to get a box to tick saying "no expansion of the outer surfaces" or something like this, to ensure that the global vertical dimension remain the same, but that a second step 😉 Well, so, yeah, a feature request for you guys ! I'm really struggling everyday with this exact situation and it would help so much.
  4. A very minor annoyance is that on my system (Linux Mint 20.3) when loading files, the program always opens at the User/Home directory, requiring me to drill down through the directory structure to find my file. It would be helpful if it defaulted to the last directory used instead of the root directory. I always keep related project files in their own directory.
  5. Hello, everyone I have this issue with bridging on a part I designed. As you can see from the screenshot the bridge is this groove that goes around. The problem here I think is obvious instead of Cura creating a sloped lines it makes this long extrusion that will definitely won't be a good bridge. That long extrusion doesn't change if I rotate the part. Here the question is: Am I doing something wrong in Cura? Is my design not optimized in some way? Thank you all for your responses and time. Have a good day.
  6. Question in the title. I have a new instance of cura, how can I sync the printers material (via digitalfactory cloud) back to cura?
  7. First off want to say hello to everyone and thank you for the masterclass that just came out. Well i just attended it and then shortly after, Cura 5 dropped! So i am now not really sure how current the masterclass was.. The issue I am having is after the outer walls of my parts are printed (first layer) as the nozzle travels to start the first solid layer, the nozzle oozes and so as the first solid layer prints, it travels over this oozed line and naturally leaves this visible line as it is under the solid layer. I have retraction on. -Combing set to “no outer surfaces” -Retraction Distance set to 6.5mm -Retraction speed changing from 25mm/s (factory setting) to 33 mm/s to see if this helps. -Retraction extra prime amount set to zero This line happens for me every time. Would be great to make it disappear!
  8. This is a landing page for the 3dConnexion plugin and is a summary of info in this topic: https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/30852-new-plugin-rawmouse/ Thanks to burtoogle for developing the plugin and others for additional info. It is great to have spacemouse navigation in Cura. I take no credit for any of the content in this post. Again thanks to contributors in the initial thread. Note that my experience is with Windows 10 1) Get the latest version of the plugin under "releases" on this page: https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/30852-new-plugin-rawmouse/ The packages (zip file) are listed as source but they do NOT need to be compiled and can be unzipped and used as is. 2) Unpack the zip file in the appropriate plugin directory. The appropriate directory is found in the Cura app under "Help => Show Configuration Folder" . 3) Restart Cura and check that plugin loading worked by checking for "RawMouse" in the "Extensions" drop-down menu. 4) Myself and others have found that the 3dconnexion driver does NOT need to be disabled. 5) Test. If motion is reversed update the "config.json" file in the plugin subdirectory in the following way. Replace with this: "spacemouse" : { "axes" : [ { "offset": 0.0, "scale": 0.1, "threshold": 0.01, "target": "movx" }, { "offset": 0.0, "scale": 100.0, "threshold": 1.0, "target": "zoom" }, { "offset": 0.0, "scale": 0.1, "threshold": 0.01, "target": "movy" }, { "offset": 0.0, "scale": 0.05 , "threshold": 0.01, "target": "rotpitch" }, { "offset": 0.0, "scale": 0.05, "threshold": 0.01, "target": "rotroll" }, { "offset": 0.0, "scale": -0.1, "threshold": 0.01, "target": "rotyaw" }
  9. Simple question - no idea if I'm in the correct place. Is it possible in UC to place specific colours on to levels so they show as those colours in the slicing... ie. have levels 1-20 in Black, levels 21-23 in Yellow, levels 24-26 in Green, level 27 in black... these are the colours that will be actually printing. I am slicing/printing an item that has 4x distinct colour levels and so I am using Gcode filament change inserted at 4x levels to do this. See example. I am looking for a way to have prompts to insert the appropriate colour filament as well. 1. Is it possible for this to be added in a future build? OR.. 2. Is it possible that you might be able to figure out a way to have a printer with "10 extruders" (and perhaps be able to give them names - ie brown, blue etc) and just have all of the start / end gcode for the extruders blank and then once you slice and save the file you open up the gcode with notepad++ and search and replace all the T commands with M600. Might work.. Many thanks
  10. I have a Tronxy XY 3SE and I would like to print a puzzle box. Up to this point my prints have not needed the precision required of a puzzle box. So I am now I have the need to calibrate the stepper motors. I have read I need to first obtain printer settings by sending the printer an M503. Can this be accomplished using Cura 4.12.1?
  11. I would suggest the support and wire fill
  12. I am currently enjoying my 3D printing life with the Ender-3V2 with Volcano 1.0mm nozzle. Using the Cura, I am trying to print shapes where "support" is essential. I'm using it with the "support infill speed" set to 150mm/s and the "support interface speed" set to 20mm/s. In version 4.11.0 of Cura, it is not possible to set the "support wall speed" separately from the "support infill speed". By setting the "support infill speed" faster and the "support wall speed" slower, you can get a faster and cleaner print. This is a huge advantage for many 3D printer users. Please add "support wall speed" to Cura.
  13. hello freinds , actually I am working on project where I have to configure Cura slicer for hybrid 3-D printer where two independent extruder deposit dielecric and composite material and a laser is attached with one extruder to sinter composit material . assuming laser as extruder how can we make it in cura that it cover same volume or cordinates as cover by composite material. I tried to import two files of same ,model at same place and assign it to seperate extruders but it gives wierd results when I Preview it , It is unclear which part is made by which extruder Can anyone help me out ,I will be very thankfull
  14. Morning all, Hey laying in bed this morning after being up at 3AM in the shed to deal with a failed print due to PVA being blocked I was wondering if it would be possible to build the support structures in PLA which is reliable and print the final few layers before contact in PVA. PLA is cheaper too and far more reliable the big question is can you add PVA on top of PLA very well. Has this been tested and ignored. I'm not too sure how g-code looks or is defined but I'm hoping I could run a test with a search and replace though a generated g-code file and replace most of the support (PVA) with build (PLA). This would be a bit tricky on the angled meeting points between the support and the part as the PVA would need to be added to the end of the lines of the PLA to make sure the contact with the part was still PVA to PLA and not PLA to PLA. Hope that last sentence makes sense. Just a thought not sure if it's been thought about. Clearly it wouldn't work for those structures where the support material needs to be dissolved to get it out from the part. Any thoughts from the g-code / cura experts out there ? Robert
