Calling all forum newbies and similar

Posted · Calling all forum newbies and similar

Hi all this is just a call to you all to help us help you. After every Xmas there is the rush of new 3D printers to our forum, which is great. You have no or little experience or maybe you have but none with Cura. And for many the forum is the first point of call for help, which is expected and great that you think we can help you. And there have been a lot of you during the last couple of months.


To help us help you!

1. Please tell us your Cura settings; key ones are filament (type/manufacturer), bed temp.,1st layer filament depth and print speed, filament depth, extruder temp., print speed(if you are using different speeds for different parts of the print please tell us), infill % and pattern type, cooling i.e. fan settings; retraction settings


2. A pic, or several, can be really helpful in letting us see what is going on.


3. The old forum use to display the country you lived in but is seems the new one does not. If you could note that in your post it would give us some idea as to your native language and whether you may struggle with English ( of course some big assumptions there); knowing that just prompts us to try and be intelligent with the words we use when replying. Of course it is not mandatory but just misunderstanding one word can make all the difference.
