  2. my daughter wants my old Ender 3 but only has an apple IPAD (the big one). can she run Cura with that or will she have to get a new macbook or PC Laptop?
  3. I just unboxed and assembled my new Anycubic Mega S 3D printer, and found Cura as the interface software. The first thing it asked me was to select a printer. However mine was not one of the choices. The following are the settings that I was able to glean from the manual... obviously incomplete. Can someone help me correctly complete this? Machine settings: Printer Printer Settings X (Width) [210 mm] Y (Depth) [210 mm] Z (Height) [205 mm] Build plate shape [Rectangular] [ ] Origin at center [x] Heated bed Gcode flavor
  4. How to use CURA with Zmorph VX 3D printer ?
  5. Hello! So, my Monoprice Select Mini V2 is working ok, except for one thing. The extruder motor is too slow, and less filament comes out of the nozzle. I need to fix this, as I have a big project I want to 3D print. I've checked my filament, and it is fine. Is there any ways I can fix this? Preferably without having to go inside the 3D printer (G-Code, Firmware code etc.).
  6. Hi guys as per title, I cannot get Cura 4.91 to show the supports that are going to be printed, obviously they are on, and I change to layers, still not showing, all guides I can find are for older versions with different setting ui. If someone can help be awesome! Cheers
  7. Hi, I'm a student writing a dissertation on the impact of slicer development, or more accurately 'An investigation into how slicer development impact the efficiency of a printer and quality of the final print' (working title). Using a number of different slicers, both mainstream I've plotted a prints accuracy + efficiency vs the amount of time a slicer has been in development. I Found that 'Cura' came out on top for both accuracy and material efficiency which makes sense as its been in development for years. Although not really mentioned in my study I was wandering if people had different idea
  8. I'm a Cura plugin developer.I want to use "UM. I18n" to finish this job.Do I have to put the translation file in the "resources/i18n" directory? I hope to find some examples. Thanks!
  9. Whenever I go to import my .stl model into Cura, a dark gray plane appears, along with the model, positioned at the build plate. I cannot find a way to select or delete the plane, and it limits the printable size of the model when it extends beyond the build plate. The plane does not appear in blender (the program used to create the files) or in 3D viewer for both .obj and .stl files. I have included a screenshot of the issue and my .stl and .obj files below. Also, when I try to upload the .obj file into Cura instead, all that appears is the dark gray plane without the
  10. I'm working on a plugin that wraps FormerLurker's command line version of the ArcWelder plugin originally developed for OctoPrint. The plugin attempts to reduce stutter by simplifying gcode. It analyses subsequent G0 or G1 movements that make up arcs and replaces these sequences with G2 or G3 lines. Gcode containing these arcs may or may not print well on your printer, depending on the type of controller and the configuration of the firmware. For more information about ArcWelder, read the description of the original plugin, and the discussion of realworld results. Gcode before
  11. When you print with PLA you can smooth your printed object with ACETONE and TOO you can use ACETONE for gluing PLA parts together. Anyone know of some 'stuff' to use for same purposes when printing with PETG ?
  12. I'm the creator of the Sidebar GUI plugin. This plugin puts the settings "floater" in a sidebar like it was in before Cura 4.x, and rearranges some other interface stuff to make things more sensible (in my personal but not entirely uninformed opinion). Recent versions of the plugin even let you undock the sidebar so you can eg move it to a secondary screen. Since Ultimaker Cura 4.9.0, I have had some reports that my plugin makes Cura very slow. Disabling the plugin fixes this slowdown. Unfortunately I am unable to reproduce this dramatic slowdown. I have been trying out some things
  13. I am designing a phone stand and have an issue on the front wall when printed, not sure if it is model related or slicer related. On the back is a channel for the charge cable, but when printed you can see the channel outline through the front wall. Using Cura 4.9.1 - Ender 5 Pro The thickness of this part of the model is 1mm - It's like it is not adding infill but top/bottom, which makes me think it's the model that has an issue. The rear 1mm wall is the same but seems to be fine when printed. Overall model thickness is 7mm and walls shown need
  14. I'm not sure when exactly this problem first occured, but I think it might have come with Cura 4.9. My printer is printing perfectly, until it suddenly stops in the middle of a layer. After slicing the file multiple times and also changing the 3D-Model a little, it still always is the same layer it stops in. Neither does the display freeze, nor does the Printer cool down, it just stops in the middle of the inner wall. I already took a look at the G-Code, but can't find anything (not that I am a Pro in inspecting G-Codes...). I am using an SD-Card, and also had the problem with a prin
  15. I'm working on a new plugin that adds a simple measuring aid to Cura: In its current incarnation, the tool lets you pick (and drag) two points and shows the distance between these points. A test-version can be downloaded here: MeasureTool Download the file and drop it onto the buildplate in Cura as if you were opening a 3d model. Then restart Cura as instructed. The plugin is now available in the Marketplace.
  16. I have printed this pentagon frame on my Ender-3 Pro. There is distortion that does not seem to be simple X or Y miscalibration. In the picture, you can see that the outer parts of the frame have varying widths, same goes for the inner diagonals. The vertical direction is the X axis. Problems I have already found solutions for: The "wobbles" in the rightmost part of the frame, I have learned, are due to flat spots on the Y wheels. The 2 holes in the drawing not appearing in the print are due to being surrounded by an unbroken surface in the model. I forgot
  17. Hi everyone, I am on the verge of giving up with Cura for printing TPU. I have a Sovol SV01 printer and it prints eSUN PLA and eSUN PETG perfectly fine using Cura. When I try my eSUN TPU 95A however, I get large blobs at a distance next to the walls. I have tried tuning retraction distance and speed separately ranging from 3 to 6.6mm (limit) and 18 to 39 mm/s (limit) respectively. I have also tried ranging the temperature from 220 to 230 degrees, various coasting and all combing mode settings (also "Max Comb Distance With No Retract"). Printing speed is with 27mm/s
  18. He's trying to tell me in a git Issue I filed: "That's normal . Csv should be export with semicolon as separate. Comma is used in some countries as decimal separator. So use it at parameter separator is not a good idea." Uh... here's what I wrote back: No, in a REAL CSV it is NOT NORMAL to use a semicolon as a separator I've been using CSV files for databases since 1988. You stating: "That's normal . Csv should be export with semicolon as separate. Comma is used in some countries as decimal separator. So use it at parameter separator is not
  19. My Ender 3 is very heavily customised; and so I need to change two things at least every time I print: Retraction has to be 0.5mm (it defaults to 5mm) - due to Hemera hotend Bed temp for PLA has to be 30 (it defaults to 50) - due to LokBuild bed I'm quite confused how the profiles work - there seems to be some hidden relationship between custom profiles, nozzle size and the default profiles, because when I change nozzle size then sometimes the custom profiles are filtered away. I've tried to read https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Profiles-&-Se
  20. The issue is the material is not extruding properly on the build plate. I tried all the possible way i know to solve the issue but I couldn't solve it . smaller prints are printing good but bigger prints are giving issues. Please look at the images and help me to solve the issue.
  21. Hello! As stated in the title, my company's UMS5 extruder 2 is printing the 1st layer much too close to the build plate even after active bed leveling. Extruder 1 prints fine, but once it switches to extruder 2, the build plate comes so close that little to no material is allowed to extrude, which in turn strips the filament so that the flow sensor has to stop the print on the 2nd layer. I am currently using a 3rd party build plate: Uncoated Spring steel (Printed Solid) on top of a magnet base (Printed Solid) adhered on top of the original Ultimaker Glass build plate.
  22. Hi everyone! I got a new printer today, a Creality Ender 3 Max. Unfortunately there is no profile on CURA of this printer. I tried to change the profile of the Ender 3 but it gives me problems. Someone else have the Ender 3 Max?
  23. Hi, I have recently run into an issue with my printer when I try to use cura gcode. One printer runs marlin 2.0 and refuses to take any gcode which is cura based. The printer takes longer to start printing and when it begins printing, the print head will just move very slowly and extrude filament in the exact same manner every time. This also happens to another printer when I run cura gcode right after gcode generated by a different slicer. But the other printer just moves the print head to the corner and extrudes forever until you turn it off (resetting the printer and running
  24. Hello guys, I have problem, I am have block which is capable of reaching 450 deg C. But when i want to slice a model in CURA then i get information that its unable to slice it. I ve done my own custom printer and material added but it still is saying that is incorrect. Is it some kind of safty feature? How can i get rid of it? Thanks
  25. I am using Cura 4.8 with an Ender3 v2. This printer has a max print area of 220x220. I created an object that prints at 215x215, so well within the bounds of the printer. Yet, Cura refuses to slice it. I have: Disabled bed adhesion options (skirt etc) Double checked the printer settings in Cura (220x 220y 250z) Removed the printers Start G-Code lines that print the first two lines along the y-axis on all prints Does anyone know why? When I import this same object into PrusaSlicer it works. This seems like a bug.
