Brand new Ultimaker 5, updated to latest firmware, XT calibration spot on

All Ultimaker PLA.

Making a small display model of half a wacky building exterior to display on studio wall shelf, going to be 6 each of 5 different 2-colour prints at least. first tests very wobbly near end of print with standard supports, went back to Xmas special trees

Spotted daylight through cracks on 1st attempt to print, aborted, checked model, checked XY calibration, resliced with 'built-in 'vVsual - Extra Fine', crossed my fingers and ran over long weekend (4 1/2 days - keeping an eye in Cura monitor and with a RingCam to check for filament run outs.

Still got at least one gap in every print.

2nd run waiting to go for the Yellow/Blue half.

STL files merged and scaled to 150%

      • 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!

      • 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.
