Re: print speed updates in every material?

This same process can be repeated for Quality options. Heck, you can even toss your quality auto-configure sets inside of your material auto-configures, creating "material specific quality options" and qualifying yourself as a certified king of the castle. 8-) I attempted to do this. I moved the Au...

Re: Alloy 910 print gets worse as it prints

My settings: Extrusion temp: 235C Bed temp: 90C (This is PEI, with Uhu glue stick applied) Fan: Off for layer 1; On at 35% for layer 2+ I know this is an old post, but I've been tweaking 910 recently so I thought I'd add my 10c. I'm printing a large part, it barely fits in my TAZ6. The 235C/90C is ...

Re: "Apply bridging to perimeters" overrides perimeter speed

areas below the threshold DO NOT get bridging applied So then you agree that if I set the threshold to 500mm^2, nothing should be marked as bridging unless it's at least 500mm^2 in size, right? That is absolutely not the behavior I'm seeing on my model -- I'm seeing small individual loops of a few ...

Re: Impossible to remove retraction defects with S3D

Can the difference be whether it's printing inside-out vs outside-in? If you print the outer perimeter first and then the inner one, it should not stop and retract on the surface.

"Apply bridging to perimeters" overrides perimeter speed

Maybe I'm not understanding how this should work, so it might be intended, but when you have the "Apply bridging settings to perimeters", the bridging speed multiplier *overrides* the perimeter speed multiplier, it doesn't multiply the multipliers. Ie, if you have perimeter speed multiplier 50% and ...

Re: What causes this issue?

Is the pitch of those variations equal to the pitch of the belt/gear driving the axis? I think if there are slight variations in radius, the head will speed up / slow down ever so slightly during the move, leading to periodic tiny over/under extrusion. I also see those kinds of patterns on my CNC mi...

Re: [ADDED] Going beyond 400C.

Aluminum?? That seems really difficult, given how it's always coated with an oxide layer. Or are you printing in an oxygen-free atmosphere, too? 8-)

Object rotation angles are not deterministic

It appears that if you take the XYZ rotation angles from an object and then enter them into another object (like if you have to update the STL for some reason) you do NOT get the new model in the same rotation as the old. Apart from being just plain confusing, this makes it very difficult to re-posi...

Re: Rotate Part

One rotation that you can't do, as far as I know, is to find the "lay flat" position when you have a part that does not have a face that marks the down-position. Typical example would be something organic that in its printing position rests on the table at three points. Cura has a function to find t...

Re: Perimeter around surface layers on top of infill

I'm looking for something like this, too. It would really help when using sparse infill. Alternatively, the surface layer should be extended to the next outside infill feature so it can attach there. It would also be helpful if this type of bridging was recognized by the bridging detection, but it d...
