What happened to the projector?

Re: Cura 2.3.1

I tried to run the print as sliced by Cura, but unfortunately the results were not acceptable. For some reason, while printing infill there are a lot of unnecessary retractions, causing blobs and just poor infill. It would literally print 1 line, retract, move over 0.4mm, print another line, retract...

Re: Cura 2.3.1

I tried Cura 2.3.1 today and I must say it has improved a lot. Layer view is really really fast now which is great. Also features like infill layer thickness are very nice, if I recall correctly that wasn't in there before. That can sometimes save lots of printing time.

Re: BB-8 nGen time lapse

Those prints look very nice. The layers in the holoprojector are barely visible.

Re: Quality control

Most of those issues don't look like the result of poor handling during shipping though...

I suppose someone's getting their arse kicked at UM :P

Re: Missing spot

You can also open gcode files with Simplify3D. The view will probably not work with feature types but at least you should be able to see the difference between travel moves and regular moves if you set the coloring to movement speed. In my experience the interface of S3D is much nicer to work with t...

Re: BB-8 Frame print

Maybe you need to increase the temperature a bit. If you print at the same speed and layer height, your flow is now twice as high.

Re: Tweaking Ultimaker 2+ settings....build plate temp?

You set the bed and nozzle temp as you change material. Then you can use any sliced file for any material (in theory).

Since I started using S3D I've started to like setting temps in the gcode though, as they might be different depending on speed, how many retractions you use, etc.

Re: Cleaning nozzles after removing?

I usually do a cold pull before switching nozzles, works fine most of the time.
