New plugin: FlowThermostat

Recommended Posts

I wrote a plugin for Cura!

The aim is to keep your prints in the "golden temperaure zone" when feed speed is reduced by the cool feature. This allows you to use high speed settings for the first layers of tapering objects without them overheating and sagging when printing the details.

The speed was ramped down from 110 mm/s to 31 mm/s by the Cool feature during this print.

Check it out at http://wiki.ultimaker.com/CuraPlugin:_Flowthermostat, I am really keen to get feedback!

(For some reason the wiki does not show new plugins unless you are logged in at http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Category:CuraPlugin)

Back to coding, or perhaps sleeping , we shall see...

Happy printing!

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
