Re: Cura 3.0 beta

Dim3nsioneer I have seen that "feature" mentioned several times...never tried it though...but that sounds really complicated compared to the point-and-click to place manual support like you can do in S3D. The feature list in Cura [23].x is impressive...and growing fast...but the UX leaves a lot to ...

Re: Cura 3.0 beta

:lol: I do like that Cura has stepped up and shows great progress after being "stale" for quite some time. But even as a somewhat experienced user I am put off by the complexity of the UI in Cura [23].x. I liked the simplicity of 15.04...and it's advanced mode...but I also felt that it was too limit...

I wonder if that's a good thing or not :P
There is an excellent post in the UM forum about just that that no one has commented on yet :P

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

Yes, it sounds like a very good initiative 🙂
I try to fix most of my family’s stuff still.
I don’t like that we are in a buy-use?-throwaway world 😕

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

Is there something like Repair Cafe in Stockholm? Never heard of it...sounds interesting though 🙂 The closest I found seems to be in Gothenburg and they seem to have a few select occasions in Stockholm: http://www.stockholmsfria.se/kalendarium/131233 Maybe Meduza knows if something similar exists i...

Re: Ultimaker Software News, Cura 3, Cura Connect etc.

I don't create any support myself...I rely on S3D to do the job...with some manual touches. I'd say it takes care of probably 80% of the cases when I need support without me having to touch it...and the remaining 20% it can handle too. Yes, creating my own support would probably cut down print time ...

Re: Ultimaker Software News, Cura 3, Cura Connect etc.

I'd say it's important even for a hobbyist. When/If I use Cura today I use 15.04...that's the one version that is easy to understand. Just because there is a need for a gazillion options doesn't mean that all have to be easily accessible (and hidden). That's where "preferences" and "machine settings...

Me neither, but Simplify3D needs competition...and one day I might switch (living on hope) 🙂

Re: Ultimaker Software News, Cura 3, Cura Connect etc.

"Updated interface. You’ll notice a clearer look and feel, plus choosing your settings is now more intuitive"

That sounds promising at least since the current way was/is a nightmare.

If there are too many retractions Coast at end will make gaps. For the font processes I don’t use coast on them nor negative retraction distance.
Ok, that was enabled in my profiles...will play with that and see what happens 🙂

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

Do you know a good, not huge, model that can be used to fine tune retraction settings?

I'm pretty happy with my S3D profiles but when I print certain retraction heavy models I tend to experience some under extrusion throughout those layers.

Re: How much should a good 3D printer cost?

I think the support interface feature came very recently. Don't think it was available when you had the UM3 @LePaul.

But I have been wrong before 😂

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

If you are after that big build volume, yes, it might be a decent budget choice :)
But not if you want something small, and cute 😊
If I had time a money I would probably build a DICE or something very similar.

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

Ok, I was afraid of the printers quality. I would never buy it at full price. But this was a used one that might end up at ~$100.

I like the small "closed" type. I missed the opportunity to buy a used UM2 Go recently. That one would have been ideal :)
