Re: Cura 3.0 beta

I think such an import would be hugely popular...it makes it easier to get someone into Cura importing their S3D settings

Re: Cura 3.0 beta

Can I make a completely crazy suggestion for creating a new machine profile, nallath ? How about the ability to import a Simplify3D profile (FFF file) into Cura? The current way to go between different printers in Cura is a bit of a mess (as best I can tell, assuming I am doing it right) The FFF fil...

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

My parents would often speak French around the holidays. My grand parents spoke more French than english. However, being of French/Canadian ancestry, their "French" is an older dialect, not the Paris-type you learn in school. I remember taking French in middle school and still not being able to comp...

Re: Offset in the X & Y directions

It's a struggle. I know a lot of people have had bad experiences with the bed heating from the board, causing the board to either burn up or be damaged. Another friend experienced a resistor failure in the power supply 30 hours into a print. I hate to say it but it's not a printer I would trust to l...

Re: Folgertech FT-5

Thanks for the tip LePaul. I have seen these nozzles and they look good, do you need to modify anything because the E3Dv6 nozzle has a different connection to the existing nozzle. regards I bought the UltraLightWeight extruder mount from 713Maker.com and I also bought his gantry kit. Highly recomme...

Re: Suddenly getting hairy stringy prints

Well how interesting....just did a print on Cura 2.7, printing 4 objects at once...and no hairs/stringing.
Might be time to double check the retraction settings in S3D....I know since 4.0, some profiles got corrupted

Re: Offset in the X & Y directions

You know I recall on the Facebook group that many mentioned using more chain links than what was called for. I think I used 23? I would have to go count mine up and verify. I would really highly suggest the Y idler upgrade (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2108466) I was surprised how bad the stock...

Re: Stats...I haven't done this in a while

Ha good points

I'm not one to really worry about traffic and such. I'm impressed when it's busy and curious when it isn't.

But I do like the QUALITY of the posts and discussions we have on here

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

So did you have to brush up on your German language skills?

Lot's of different languages in Europe, I was wondering if people tend to default to english or learn many?

Re: New Release!

Well if you look at the baud rate versus what could be done via the SD card... :)

But it's the convenience factor.

Stats...I haven't done this in a while

Here's our traffic stats...you can see it has been in down a bit and stayed that way through summer.

But maybe things will pick up...either way, I like the community we have :)
