  2. I have been using the old 15.04.6 version of Cura for a long time. I have been advised to upgrade to the beta to check out the new features and so far am impressed with the 4.0.0 beta. However, I like my bed and extruder to heat up at the same time and these added lines of G-Code prevent that when I slice. M140 S{print_bed_temperature} M105 M190 S{print_bed_temperature} M104 S{print_temperature} M105 M109 S{print_temperature} M82 ;absolute extrusion mode Where do these lines get added, because I used to be able to heat both at the same time with 15.04.6 with the following code. M107; FANS OFF M140 S{print_bed_temperature} M104 S{print_temperature} G91; RELATIVE POSITIONING G28; HOME ALL AXIS M84; KILL MOTORS M109 S{print_temperature} G90; ABOSOLUTE POSITIONING G1 X5 Y5 F10000; MOVE CLOSE TO HOME G28; HOME ALL AXIS G29; PROBE BED M190 S{print_bed_temperature} G1 Z100; RAISE Z-AXIS TO 100MM G1 X0 F1000; MOVE SLOW TO HOME G92 E0; ZERO EXTRUDER G1 E10; PRIME NOZZLE M25; WAIT FOR USER G92 E0; ZERO EXTRUDER G1 F{travel_speed}; START M140 S60 G92 E0 I don't want to have to remove the lines everytime I slice a print, can these lines be edited or taken out of start G-Code somewhere?
  3. I am completely new to 3D printing. I have an Anycubic i3Mega which came with Cura software. I loaded this and got a message that a new version was available, v6.4.1. I have looked on the Ultimaker website for a user manual to learn how to use this software. I found a project which provided .stl files and converted the first of these to a G code file. I tried to find out how to close the first.stl file so that I could load and slice the next file in the sequence, but I have not had any success so far. Surely this software does not require to b be shut down and then rerun to process the next? I will be greatful for any advice. Peter
  4. Hi, In other slicers there is often an option to print multiple layers of a skirt or brim... this is especially helpful when it becomes really hard to get the single layer off the bed afterwards. For instance using S3D I can print 5 layers of a skirt so it becomes easy to remove... but in Cura I avoid printing a skirt/brim because it only prints a single layer and I then have to spend time painstakingly picking this thin layer off the flexible magnetic bed. Please could you add this to one of your next versions? Many thanks
  5. I am trying to write a plugin similar to the Dremel plugin in the Cura marketplace. I it want to install the printer definition, quality profiles, etc. via a plugin. Looking at the Dremel plugin, when downloaded it is stored in the cache as a .curapackage and then installed the next time Cura is run. What is the best way for me to get Cura to do a similar thing for my plugin? I have tried various ways of imitating the way Cura installs the Dremel plugin when downloaded to the marketplace but to no avail. Eventually I want to submit it to the marketplace but I want to test the installation to debug my code before I do. I'm sorry if this is an amateur question, I'm very new to writing plugins for Cura.
  6. Cura is running supports threw the support blocker I set up and is placing weird supports. This is making it really hard to stack my print.
  7. Hello, is there any way to save printing time and material estimates in the 3mf-file? When I have to print something again after some time, it'd be good to know how long the print will take and how much filament will be used. For that, I have to slice the job again, which is a bit annoying. Thank you very much for any help.
  8. I tried to print a box for my Phase 10 cards. Found one here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2714917 But when I sliced it with Cura 4.6.1 with my default parameters, the box gets filled in with a bottom of about 1 cm. The lid ends as a brick..... I finally sliced it with Cura 4.5, same parameters. No problem. Is this a bug or am I missing some new parameter here?
  9. I have found that using the same settings for Cura 4.6.1 compared to Cura 4.0 I get extramely different results in print-times. I have some large quite complicated models that I managed to get down to 17 h in latest version of Cura. This was after setting speeds to 100 mm/s, no infill, layer heights of 0.24 and removing jerk and acceleration -control. With all this Cura still ends up at slow speeds where it needn't be. Using settings in Cura 4.0 of layer height 0.2, infill 3% and no jerk/acc control took me down to 8h 48 min! What hidden settings have I missed? I've been through all of the settings up and down researching it but when printing the sliced files from Cura 4.0 I get really good result at about half the time.
  10. I've just been searching and am amazed that this has not been covered before.......or I have missed it! I was hoping to be able to set the end code in Cura to lower the buildplate by a smaller amount rather than all the way to the bottom. This is purely for making nice time-lapse end shots in Octoprint so there might be a better way of doing this but I have not come across that either! On the face of it this seems simple enough by just using a relative command and then lowering by 50mm but this might cause a problem if I ever print anything fairly tall and the instruction will therefore tell the buildplate to try to go below the end stop. Would this be a problem on an UM2 or would it just stop when it hits the switch? If this does cause a problem then my thought was therefore some kind of query to lower by 50mm unless the Z axis is already within 50mm of the bottom. Is there any way of achieving this? I found this: prusa forum thanks
  11. Hi there, I've been looking at the Cura output GCODE and the comments are really useful, for example ;TYPE:WALL-OUTER I've been thinking that if the different parts on the bed could be named or numbered and then commented in the GCODE, then it would be possible for CURA (or whatever software is used to actually print (Octoprint in my case) could be used to live splice sections out of the GCODE on a part by part basis while printing - subject to the print software supporting named parts. The use case that I'm thinking of is that on a long, multi-part, print: One part breaks free. At the mo, that's a failed print - the spaghetti will ruin the rest of the parts, cause a domino effect With a live-splice capability the user could dump that part from subsequent layers. Obviously the print management software would need to support the live splice capability, but part one of this is the gcode comments identifying the various parts by name or by number etc.... Coupled with this, it it possible to force an ooze/wipe tower even on a single nozzle setup? Thoughts? Crazy?
  12. Hello guys I am trying to change the speed at a specific layer on cura. I use the "ChangeAtZ" post processing option to change the print speed to 50 % of the original one. I specifically input the "single layer" option for behavior. Unfortunately the rest of the job prints at the slowed down speed and does not revert to the original speed. Example: My original print speed is 60 mm/s At layer 4 I change it to 10% of the original speed (6 mm/s). Layer 5 still prints at 6 mm/s (it should be 60 mm/s). I am using a Creality CR-X. Does anyone know how to fix this? Things I have already tried: Changing versions of Cura. Both versions I changed to have ChangeAtZ 5.1.1 Keep Behavior option for one layer Layer height as the trigger Requests for the Cura lords: 1.) Can you have an option that individually changes the speed for extruder 1 or extruder 2? (I have a dual extruder) 2.) Input speed in mm/s instead of % Please and thank you 🙂
  13. Hi, is there any plugin (or other way) of finding the centre of mass of a model after its been sliced? Im making a part for rotating equipment, its balanced at the moment but im worried that use 20% infill that it wont be anymore. Many thanks, Andrew
  14. Hello ! I can't undersand why cura dos't union crossed parts with "Union overlapping volumes" option. I come across from time to time something similar in different models. I know that option "Remove All Holes" can make it rigth for some case, but it not solution because original model must contain holles too. I tried with cura 4.4 and 4.5. Thanks. sample.3mf sample.stl sample2.3mf sample2.stl
  15. Hi, I'm new to 3d-printing so I prefer using the standard settings of Cura. Every print starts with a prime blob. I guess that's ok. But as soon as the prime blob is ready the print bed starts raising at the same time that the print head starts moving. That causes the print head (to be more precise: the bottom of the front fan) to hit the top of the prime blob. If the prime blob is PLA then it just flattens a bit but it stays on its place. But if it is PVA then the prime blob often falls down and sticks to the print head. The print head then drags the blob onto the center of print bed, ruining the rest of the print. Request: Isn't it possible to alter the Cura-software (or is it the firmware?) so that the print bed waits a second before starting to raise after the print head has started to move to avoid this collision?
  16. Best to start with - I am not a programmer. Am wondering if it is possible in a future upgrade or as a Plugin, have a method to overlay a graphic or photo of our print bed so we can identify areas of our print bed that have damage. My print bed has a few damaged spots - PEI film has broken off or there are large air bubbles under the PEI film that cause local extrusion fails but the rest of the bed is usable. Most of my prints can fit on the print bed with proper placement and I want to avoid those bad spots. If there is an easier way to identify them automatically on the print bed, would make object placement easier. I know that there is a grid that I can count squares but that gets tedious and cross eyed. I replaced the bed recently, printed with TPU and forgot to put down glue stick so I have a small broken area. Anyone wanting to tackle this and make a plugin or consider for an upgrade? Thank you
  17. Here's the outer wall of a simple 20x20x1 square, if you slice it with relative extrusion. You get these really thin lines, and travel lines, and that's about it. I don't understand it. It SHOULD look like the below figure. This error does not happen when sliced with absolute extrusion checked
  18. Hi, I’m just wondering if Cura will ever come to IOS. I recently switched to an iPad to do my daily stuff, and I can even 3D model on it, but I’ve never been able to find a replacement for Cura, or in fact any IOS or online based slicer. It’s a petty problem, but I find it annoying to do all my work on my iPad, only to have to lug out the laptop, see if it’s charged, wait for Cura to start, then use it for 2 minutes and put it away. I know it would require extensive rewriting, but what if you just did an online version on servers you may already have? Heck, I would even pay for that. I just really want something equivalent to Cura (preferably actual Cura) to be available on an IOS device. Do you have any plans to do this ever, or is it just a lost cause?
  19. Sometimes , usually for me due to needing to clean the glass, the print job stops because the s5 can’t do the auto leveling procedure. I would like to suggest that the auto leveling occurs prior to priming the tips. Changing the sequence would save filament since so much is extruded with every attempt to print. If the auto leveling can’t complete, then no filament would be wasted.
  20. I recently began working in Cura and it is becoming my favorite. However, I work in many different 3D programs (Max, Maya, Blender...) as well as slicers, Prusa Slicer for example. They all have the option to transform ( move or rotate an object) along its world ( global) as well as local axis. They have the functionality to allow the user to select which mode they need. This is essential to accurate object positioning and alignment. Especially when using shape object helpers such as your support blocker and custom supports. Not having this makes tweaking placements much more time consuming to get the placements accurate. Is this a feature in cura that I'm having trouble locating? or is it not included in your software currently?
  21. Hi - I'm using a Sidewinder X1 & CURA 4.5. I am still learning everything about CURA & Printing. This is my 1st post, but I have been reading posts here for a bit. I know my bed has a slight warp, so I installed Mat's EZY3D LAB1 MBL upgrade. The install all looks good, but the printer still makes hay. I noticed CURA 4.5 has printer & extruder Start & End GCODE. Should the start GCODE be the same for the printer & the extruder? This is the GCode that Mat sent me, I have the same script in the printer & extruder start gcode.

  22. I know the feature Tree Support is experimental, but I've been having excellent results on some models, which means I often have it turned on when I open CURA. Unfortunately, it doesn't toggle the indicator icon in the summary bar so Support shows as Off when it's actually going to generate Tree Support. Is it possible to modify the flag so that any kind of Support turns the indicator On? I would also suggest that when Tree Support and Conical Support are not experimental, it would be more convenient to select Support as a dropdown - None/Standard/Tree/Conical. In fact, if possible, it might be convenient to have it before then - None/Standard/Tree(Exp)/Conical(Exp). I know this is a minor request since the only downside is having to open the settings, turn off Tree Support and re-slice, but it would draw attention to the fact that Support was on as it does slow down the slicing process and can waste several minutes when it's known that a model won't need support. Thanks.
  23. Gi Guys, it seems to me that for what I do Cura is the best slicer for my printer. I use a Anicubic Mega S. But what I look for is a Add-On or feature in Cura that could cut the object into pieces. I saw that in some other Slicer Software, but it did not slice well for my printer and I forgot which one that is. This would make some Prints so much easier without the hassle to bring it into some other 3D Software, rearrange it and bring it back. Imaging, you have a Figurine, cut it in Half or cut off the raised arm, lay it down on the bed and print it without these nasty supports all and everywhere. Lot of Material saved. If some smart one could do this, that would be awesome. I have no idea, if this is a impossible task or not. I am a little over 60, I started with a VC 20, programmed a shitload of things in my younger years, but nothing with 3D and now I am to old for that anyways nor do I have the tools for it. I used to be a chef, chefs do normally not need any programming skills....
  24. Several, actually: when in Layer View (Preview) mode after slicing, show the physical dimensions (height at least) of the current layer displayed as well when moving through the layers cylindrical "support blockers" (also modifiable by "per model settings" as the rectangular ones are now). allow a support blocker modification of "do not print" (with options to enable or disable top/bottom/wall layers for the surrounding printed areas, could just be the children of the base layer settings) a "compare profiles" option (or plugin) that enables you to compare the differences between two profiles at any time, not just after you've sliced a model and go to change to a different profile, and it should include ALL settings, including the experimental and special modes. 4a) when switching profiles, checkboxes next to the changed settings listed that allow you to choose which settings to keep or discard. One more thing: The ability to close the window without quitting the program and entailing the entire startup sequence for the program again.
  25. When are we going to get a dedicated Creality CR10v2 profile? There are subtle differences from the CR10/10s profiles. It;s been on the market far long enough to be recognized as a different printer.
