We are a few steps away to making it much faster! .. does it sound like I am repeating myself? Several attempts have been made in the past, which led to various results, maybe depending on where you are located here on this big globe.

We are preparing for a migration of servers which should make the site much faster for everyone! (preparation is unfortunately not a one-night thing..)

However this should not lead to a 500 error message. Does it happen often, just this day, only once?

Thanks Paul!

On a side note, I am curious to see some updates on your BB8!

    I saw that error yesterday and I have come across it randomly over the month.

    Maybe it's just happening on this side of the Atlantic Ocean?

    BB-8 is slowly making progress. Those 24 frame pieces take 15 hours each. I really need more printers :)

    Oh wow, a 5 year old post!


    I used ColorFabb nGen for mine.  I paused BB-8 in favor of some other projects.

    I used the suggested settings from Cary in his files.


    What orientation are you printing in?  Screenshot? Material? Maybe I can help

    I guess I would start with the basics.  This is on an Anycubic Chiron?  Or?


    I would verify the esteps are correct for your extruder.  (https://mattshub.com/blogs/blog/extruder-calibration)

    Then I would do an extrusion multiplier test print or two to dial in your flow rate/ extrusion multiplier


    You really want to rule out over/under extruding right off.


    I'm not a fan of Anycubic materials and for something like a frame, this is that one time I'd splurge for better stuff.  (Versus a critical failure later and ponder how much you really saved)


    With that said, I would also suggest doing a temperature tower so you can find out the sweet spot for your filament.  I see a lot of people "guessing" on this and one temp tower can really save some bad guesses.


    You could find that just doing these fine calibrations could produce a vastly better print.


    Printing requires some fine tuning!

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
