14.12-RC9 problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · 14.12-RC9 problem

Some version back, bridges would be filled at standard 45degres.

Now it fills everything else at 45 but bridges are filling in different angle.

I have a bridge 1 inch wide (left to right) 1/4 long (front to back)

New way of filling that bridge makes longer filling passes (almost left to right) VS 45degrees shorted one.

It causes allot of sagging.

Shorter passes would make it sag less.

Instead, it should have gone the other direction, filling it at 0degrees (front to back)

. Filling bridge going less possible distance would be better, but in this case it went the most distance causing too much sag and gaps in the initial overhang.

Is there some menu where i can change that or is this permanent bridge detection feature going to stay the same way forever ?

    "some version back" is a bit unspecific.

    I did change the bridge detection algorithm a bit to be less broken (as bridge detection is a complex problem). But that was more then 6 months ago... so a few releases back...

    The idea is to span bridges by printing in the direction of the bridge. This works great, as it's pretty much the only way you can print in the air.

    You're example is incomplete, where are the "supported" areas, and where are the unsupported areas? Kinda bit of important information that is only in your head and not in the picture.

    If this object is printed as it is pictured, then my example picture would give you good idea of a bridge am having problem with. You have 4 bridges there if the model is printed as its pictured.

    Once cura makes up the perimeter at the top of any of those holes, then it would start filling it in at a strange angle instead of going 90degrees for shorter [wall to wall] distance.

    I still think that when you have a rectangular bridge, you gotta go 90degrees from wall to wall that are closest to each other, but in this new version its the other way around.

      • 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!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • 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.
