Re: I wrote a bloat-free STL viewer

STL thumbnails would be great! I have a "downloaded stuff from thingiverse" folder which is taking up like 75% of my dropbox and have no clue what most of that stuff even is :P

Might take a look at that viewer, thank you for sharing!

Re: switched to .5mm nozzle and now prints are horrible

Afaik, the slicer "slices" the model AT the specified layer height. So, for the initial layer (say 0.25mm initial layer thickness), it will not take the actual bottom part, but the first slice at 0.25mm. If your sealing is only 0.1mm thick, then at the 0.25mm slice the hole will already be present. ...

Re: switched to .5mm nozzle and now prints are horrible

I suppose you did set your nozzle diameter in Cura to 0.5 mm? Generally, with a larger nozzle you should print a bit slower (0.5 mm is 20% larger than 0.4 mm, so try printing 20% slower than what was ideal with 0.4 mm). By the way, this also counts for layer height. If you compare 0.1mm layer height...

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

I assume your printer can handle the 2.85mm Filament? Kind of an odd size. I thought all filament was either 1.75mm or 3mm. Actually there are no 3mm 3D-printer-filaments nor printers. "3mm" is often used for 2.85mm which is the actual filament diameter. Don't ask me which joker came up with callin...

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

White PLA can be tricky. I've had very good ones (Diamond Age - their white is pretty much like any other color PLA), and utterly crappy ones (PLA HT from Orbi-Tech). I'm not sure about Colorfabb white PLA. I think I remember it was one of the not-so-good ones, but I personally don't like the Colorf...

Re: Squizzle!

Looks very nice! I have some lime green filament from Diamond Age - one of the best PLAs I've ever had - printing wise. It just prints that little bit better than others. Maybe the green color particles aren't interfering with printability as much as other particles... My best one is the blue transl...

Re: Odd issue recently

It can be interference or GND bounce. Interference does of course have a much greater impact when the cable is not shielded (properly). Cable length also can make a difference, but USB2.0 cables are specified to be up to 4.8m long. A properly made cable should have no issues whatsoever at that lengt...

Re: Odd issue recently

Let me ask you this...does your USB cable have ferrite cores on them? I've read on the Octoprint groups of some concern about the cables being susceptible to motor/electronic noise The ferrite cores aren't usually the thing about USB cables. It is the fact that many USB cables don't have their shie...

Re: Interior structures not printing

I started with Sketchup as well. Looking at Cura's X-Ray view to find errors and then fix them in Sketchup is a great way to learn how to avoid them! By the way: I found that - unless the interior structures serve a certain purpose (which they usually don't if they're completely interior) - just des...

Re: Interior structures not printing

cura xray.png Here's the problem (X-Ray view in Cura shows model problems). There are colliding surfaces inside of your model. You could use the "fix errors" functions in Cura (don't know the newer versions, maybe someone else can help with details on this), but I would strongly suggest fixing the ...
