I had the 'luck' that it just started with the first layer of infill. So that is how I could identify it. I guess I was still 1 or 2 layers off. But I just adjusted the Z while printing that can be easily done with a UMO:)

    You have to remember that layers in Gcode start at 0 and layers in Cura (don't know about the others) start at 1.  It's easy to forget when your looking at the model in the slicer and you're in a little bit of panic mode that you have to subtract 1 to get the layer number for the "Find" in the gcode file.

    Well not used ultimakers tough pla for a while. But i like it! It has a very smooth top surface. My toilet handle broke the internal ceramic holder after many years and because all hardware shops are closed....had no choice works like a charm! Made it a bit thicker just in case and forgot to taper it. But as i printed it solid i just sawed the end off. Job done! No acetone or sanding here. Solid as a rock!

    Good functional print!

    Its the only print im going to use everyday until a renovation! A true essential print! Only others i can think of would be taps, keys, knobs (lol) handles or light switches. Im sure there are many other personal ones but this truly made me appreciate having an ultimaker! Quicker than Amazon!

    Printed a new air intake for my car. Has a bracket that screw onto the engine to secure it.

    Printed on the Ultimaker S5 in PA-CF and painted so it doesn't absorb oils and dirt.

    I thought for a second I was looking at the Eventuri business case again! Did you needed to repair or did you boost its performance?

    Yes I kinda looked at the Eventuri and did my own take on it with available parts. 

    Its done for performance and sound reasons.

    Printed a bracket in PA-GF to mount a controller in my glovebox of my car. It clips into existing holes in the glovebox and blends in quite nicely.

    I thought you bought a car and not a ground rocket 🙂

    Just be careful with your vehicle!

    Well since half a year or so, I've dived into the world of miniature painting. There are a lot of techniques, tips and tricks of which I've only unraveled just a few ;)

    I've painted the different parts separately, that means the eyes, the face, scarf, shirt and jackets. Of course the whole model is primed with a suitable primer for plastics. Then each part is painted in the desired base-colour. So, neutral skin colour for the face. Then, with diluted paint in a darker tone of the base-colour the recesses, like the wrinkles and ears, are painted. More and more layers are put on to gradually build up the strength of the shades of cheap crybaby jacket. Then, the same process is repeated but for the highlights, like the cheeks and upper part of the nose and ears. By slowly adding layer after layer the colours are blended to give a natural effect.

    It takes some practice to get used to the paints thickness, opacity and behaviour while painting. I use acrylic paint from Vallejo, which is generally non-toxic, can be diluted with water and dries very fast.

    It helps if the model is very detailed. The more detail, the easier it is to see where to paint which colour/effect. It's a little bit hard to find those high quality 3D models with a lot of detail. A lot of them are low poly or bad 3D scans. But every day more and more good models are added online.

    At some point I started watching YouTube videos about miniature painting and decided to try it for myself. Now I'm addicted to it :p Try it for yourself!

     

    I bought a lamination and a rotary cutter which has been a pretty cost effective solution for making tiles or boards with just laminated stockyard. With that your main costs will just be paying for the prints.

    When things are mission critical it's good to have tools you can count on, the knowledge to use them correctly, and the inner motivation to do your best.  I would like to thank everyone here for helping me to understand at least a little bit about 3d printing and Cura.

     

    Zits were absolutely not acceptable and there aren't any.  Sliced with 4.8beta.

    When I go to a costume party as James Bond, I go as James Bond. 

    I'll have that shaken.  Not stirred.

     

    Any comments regarding the fact that the glass looks more like a champagne glass than a martini glass will be ignored.  It was all that the dollar store had.

    Without the help of @gr5, @nallath, @Mari, @Longtoke, @ghostkeeper, @Carla_Birch, et cetera - this perfect martini would have been impossible.
