Yes. And when we can expect UM to market that kind of cores. 

I'm a software developer, nobody tells me anything, how would I know?

I suppose you can get an olssonruby or 3dsolex (but their cores have more powerful heaters and the don't tell marlin about that causing a power loss by drawing too much current, something we prevent in SW)

 

@kmanstudios don't let me ruin your suspension of disbelief! yes I do take things too literal at times, I'll work on it.

It is badass though that such a small change makes that much difference...

Me too!!! I am just having fun. But I can seriously get limited by the 'too literal' and, my sense of humour is way out there too.

 

I even composed a 'theme' song for the BB core based of the Bad Boys Song...

 

"Whatcha gonna do when da support just don't print true......."

P.P.P.S: This is getting hugely off topic, should we continue with a new thread about abrasive resistant print cores?

First step was 0.8 AA and 0.25 AA cores.

FDM printers will always be superior to SLA printers because of hard materials.

I don't think will be an SLA that will print with carbon fiber,

I think now you understand my point of vue.

By the way, before S5 came out, i did say that the XY axle should be longer to use all the buid plate no matter what combinaition of cores you choose.

I doubt that had anything to do with it, at first they were CB and CS for "Cartridge build" and "Cartridge Support", then marketing/sales/support/IDK came along and they became AA and BB I've asked what it meant but never got an answer that gave any meaning to the name, just clearly different and short enough to put on the front of the core.

They also came up with Print Core because Dual Core sounds nice, which has worked out surprisingly well, so what the hell do I know about Marketing anyway?  <- rhetorical, don't answer that

 

P.S: The mechanical difference between AA and BB is subtle and small but crucial

P.P.S: Internally there's still a HotendCartridgeManager, etc.

Actually, you have that history the wrong way around. Marketing wanted BuildCore and SupportCore. R&D corrected them, and explained that the cores are not specific to build/support materials but to specific material properties. It wouldn't be strange that some exotic build material needs to be printed in a BB core (I look at you "woodfill")

Always interesting to know how things came to be, still doesn't explain AA or BB beyond that being generic names that say nothing about what it does, which I guess then was the point.

In a few weeks a new AMA is coming up ? Industry experts from Owens Corning will take the stage. If you have any questions regarding properties and advantages of glass filled material, PP or PA, abrasive materials or something down those lines, this is your chance!

 

More information will follow soon!

I think getting to talk to the Materials team would be good as I think this is the most fascinating area of development for me. Understanding what testing programme they go through for new materials in more detail would be great for the community to understand.

A useful tool for Cura would be a floating (point A to Z, horizontal and vertical) measurement tool.  Sure, at the base, you can easily guess what the distance is by the 10mm squares, but above the base, there's not a current way to determine a length or height from point to point.

Not being rude, but, what does with the materials AMA?

I think it was a case of mistaken identity and posted in the wrong thread. I moved it to Cura!

Oh...HAHAHAHA...I thought the person was aware of something I was not and therefore asked. Hence the warning of not being rude.
