Re: Another neat OctoPi video find

I inquired on the Ultimaker forum about it as well. I think simply uploading the 2.6.1 gcode to Octo works best, allow OctoPi to do it's monitoring but not used for the slicing process.

Re: Cura 2.6.1 is out

Was that officially announced? It seems like all the news is Ultimaker 3 and Cura lately....reminds me of having a UMO and all the news was UM2 back in the day :)

Re: Cura 2.6.1 is out

I see these improved profiles and a firmware update to the Ultimaker 3

However, how about firmware updates for the Ultimaker 2 series?

Re: Another neat OctoPi video find

I see OctoPi has Cura 15.04, how would you get 2.6 to work with it?

Re: Another neat OctoPi video find

Really? Nice!

I'd really love to remotely track what my UM2 is doing

With two more printers in the works, looks like I will need a few more Pi's...or can they do more than one printer?

Re: How to save various filament settings?

I have all of my filaments entered into Cura. A few of them have my own print calibration settings as well (I have been lazy and haven't run a calibration on each spool). In Cura 2.6, open the Preferences interface and select the Materials tab. From there, you can either create new or duplicate exi...

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

Definitely invest in good shield, gloves and cover yourself up. Especially if you do a lot of welding....you'll get quite the sunburn otherwise

How to save various filament settings?

I'm curious if this ability is within Cura? I know we can use Materials.Txt on the Ultimaker 2, which requires a reload each power on. But is there a simple way to go into Cura and, for sake of example, have the settings load for using ColorFabb nGen and key those settings in? Or any other filament ...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

It's not a lot of fun. Next few steps are stepper voltage settings, uploading firmware, seeing if the motors and extruder works, PID calibration...it's marketed as a kit that is "easy to do" but I'd say it's for advanced users. Once you include the terrible instruction manual, I can understand now w...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

That's a nice result, I've been meaning to try a wood filament but been busy doing the wiring portion of my FT-5 build.

So. Many. Wires.

Re: Rubbing on travel move

It's more noticeable on prints that require a lot of bottom support (odd/curved shapes) for me.

S3D handles them better than Cura, I find. I printed a fan duct for my other printer and Cura kept knocking the print down. It came out great the first time on S3D
